What will my student learn?

Every student is different. I have no way to know what an individual student will learn, but I can give you a rough idea of the subject matter students will encounter:

  • The elements of art
  • The principles of design
  • Color theory and color harmonies
  • Typography
  • Composition and design

Students also need to learn how to use the tools:

  • The macOS and the Finder
  • Browsers and search engines
  • Adobe Illustrator (vector imagery)
  • Adobe Photoshop (raster imagery)

Our Gameful LMS (Learning Management System) is easy for students to grasp. Still, the nature of self-pacing and self-assessment challenges students to approach the classroom with a different mindset:

  • Students, not the teacher, start the class (before the bell).
  • They learn to work at their own pace (and that it’s not a race).
  • They determine when a mission is complete (self-assessment).
  • They understand that I will often ask for iteration (revisions and improvements).

There’s far more than that, but other qualities (that I stress and nurture) lead to optimal outcomes:

  • Grit
  • Integrity
  • Growth mindset
  • Self-reliance

Students in the Mac Lab learn to balance freedom with responsibility. Oh, and they create epic art like this.
