     On Tuesday, September 17, from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM at the Wamego Technology Center will be the class “Visual Storytelling on iPad with Adobe Slate.” Participants will learn how to create and publish their own web page using the free Adobe Slate app on iPad.

     Both iPad classes will be taught by Mary Hammel, Kansas State University Associate Director of the Catalyst Technology, Media and Creative Services Center in the College of Education. Hammel is also a leader of the monthly KSU iPad Users group. iPads will be provided, courtesy of the Wamego Technology Center.

GOOGLE FOR BEGINNERS on Sept. 22

There’s so much you can do with Google!  This introductory course for adults and teens  will  briefly cover the very basics of Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Drive.  Follow-up sessions will be scheduled based on attendee needs.  Highland Community College instructor Sandra Pinick will lead this course at the Tech Center from 5:30 - 6:30 pm.


 AUGMENTED REALITY CLASS for 1st - 6th graders on Oct 13-14

Augmented reality (AR) takes a 2D picture and brings it to life with video, audio or 3D representation.  In this class students will explore apps in which their art becomes 3D.  We will also add layers to student created art by adding video and audio.  We will have fun with sketches, technology and AR while exploring ways to enhance the viewer’s sensory perception of the virtual world they are seeing.  AR varies from simple to complex so this is the perfect class for a wide range of students grades 1-6.  West elementary teacher Lori Rice will lead this class from 3:30 - 5:00 pm on Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct. 13 - 14 in the Tech Center Room 204 at Wamego High School.
