Scanning Projects contains 10 beginning flattop scanning projects and 7 advanced projects suitable for a high school aged student, and possibly a little younger. Basic information about scanning is included. Scanners used to create the projects were all Hewlett Packards and some of the directions are specific to HP software. However, other scanners can be used. It is assumed that students have an elementary knowledge of a drawing program, a word processor, perhaps a desktop publishing program, and even a few skills on a more advanced graphic editor such as Adobe Photoshop©.
Projects include a variety beginning with very easy ‘scan and print’ projects, up to complex projects requiring the use of graphics editing software such as Adobe Photoshop or others that have a lasso tool. Included are practical projects such as making a greeting card, a collage, a calendar page, etc. The more complex projects involve cutting something out of a picture and replacing it with something else, etc. Lessons are reproducible for use in one computer lab in one building. The entire set of projects takes approximately 10 – 15 (48 min.) class periods to complete, depending on the proficiency level of the students.
One thing you may find helpful is to have a stack of sports, hunting, family, and fashion magazines that students can use for the projects. A good rule to have is that nothing can be torn out of the magazine, thereby keeping them intact as long as possible! A container full of pieces of ribbon, braid, rubber bands, paper clips, stars, sticks, colored paper (foil wrapping paper pieces work great!), shapes, photos or picture postcards gives you another resource that works well.
