Digital images have numerous uses in the technology-friendly classroom.

The Short Courses site will give you all of the how-to's about getting started. The site is divided into several "books," which are then divided into "chapters." Book 1, the main meat of the site, gives a good overview of the basics of using and understanding the functions of a digital camera. Book 2 provides information to help you choose the best digital camera for your purposes. The site also features a Community Center, which includes a gallery, chat rooms, forums, and more. The Teachers Center is an area for those who want to teach digital photography at the high-school or college level. This is a very useful site!
