Painting in Photoshop with a Wacom Tablet
I just watched a presentation with Joe Dockery about Wacom tablets and drawing in Photoshop. I have a class set of Wacom Tablets and Joe helped me see that there is a need for a conversation about the Wacom Tablet. See his post here on the EdExchange. How is it being used in your classroom? I worry that our tablets are being under used. Some things we have done are:
#1 I took away the mice and have made them use the multi-touch gestures. No MICE in my room. The students do lessons on multi-touch that is built-in to Mac OS and how to use the the touch features including a click and drag gesture, accessing tools buried in the tool box, and launch pad.
#2 They are assigned to change the options in the Wacom settings to meet their needs. Often we turn off the touch when using the pen so that they are not moving the mouse while drawing.
If you need some Wacom Pen Storage Solutions there is a great discussion going on about that.
