Both quality and relevance of the course content was extremely well organised and delivered. Angelo provided good examples and directed the class in all things for this program.

The course provided me with an understanding of how to use Lightroom and to also teach aspects of the software in the classroom. Angelo was very well prepared and obviously an expert in the software. He scaffolded the day so that all were able to follow and understand many features of the software. Excellent training. The Lightroom course provides a structured introduction into the features of the software. The presenter, Angelo Boutsalis, is evidently accomplished in his field. He provided a scaffolded day where participants were provided with generic background information on digital photography that then led into hands on use of Adobe Lightroom. Through out the course, suggestions were provided on how the software could be used in the Photography and Digital Media classroom. Angelo’s personable manner made participants comfortable and enabled them to ask questions through out the practice sessions. An excellent and motivational course.

Practical elements of course were valuable. More time needed on this rather than context to photography. 1st session needs to be MUCH briefer.

Angelo was very knowledgeable and it was a comprehensive overview of Lightroom. Never having used it before, it was easy to follow and understand.

Very good when explaining aspects of lightroom. Powerpoint good, but I understood the content more clearly when the presenter went away from it and discussed the relevant content.

Angelo answered all my ‘stupid’ questions, seeing I was starting this with the basics. Excellent overview and time to explore. Individual help much appreciated.

About the team



Dragon Education

Presenter

The team behind Dragon Education and Training have over twenty years of experience working with teachers, students, and schools to provide imaging solutions. Dragon Education and Training was created in response to the demands of teachers for whom the most valuable resource is knowledge. Teachers want to know how and why they want to understand and to use their understanding to help them deliver better outcomes for their students. Teachers also want to be engaged in order to feel that their professional learning is valuable to their school, their students, but most importantly to themselves. As available technologies continue to emerge and transform the way we do things, both in the classroom and in the real world, it is important to remember that knowing what the technologies are and how to use them is only a small piece of the puzzle; what is far more important is understanding why.

All of Dragon’s courses and programs are developed and presented by teachers for teachers, and they aim to address both the how and the why in order to make your professional learning: Relevant, Accessible, Hands-On & Applicable
