Overview

With tools for photography, moviemaking, DVD production, and music creation, Apple's iLife software can enhance just about any educational experience. The real power comes when all of these programs are used together, and in this fully updated book, longtime digital media guru Jim Heid, along with education expert Ted Lai, provide teachers with both the technical detail they need to work with the software (including an interactive tour of the iLife suite) and the lesson plans and projects they need to get students using the tools creatively and effectively. Teachers learn by doing as the book steps them through projects that teach iLife basics. They can then choose from among the 6 full lessons and 20 mini lessons (that can be taught in an afternoon or just over a day or two). The lessons include projects to share that knowledge with students, student tip sheets, and more. This book is beautifully illustrated with updated coverage that includes the latest products in iLife '08 (now available for US$79): iDVD, iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, iWeb, and .Mac Web Gallery. These amazing applications bring out the creative spirit in everyone.
