Interns, Educators, and the Aspiring

I combined eight subjects to complete a home-shopping website to post online. If you are a business, creative design, or writing student, you may wish to approach your professors to ask if they would give you credit for this website that you create by using the skills you learn from me and utilizing the subjects above. You will be provided with a template that may take you independently too... read more

The Great Bugaboo: File Resolution

Often people have the mistaken belief that images that look great on their web site should also work well when they grab them from their site and provide them to printing service providers. Web images display very well at 72 pixels per inch (often referred to as ppi) on a computer screen but printed images on paper or other substrates work best at 240 ppi and above for various forms of inkjet... read more

Finding a balance between design and function

Something that confuses me is whether a web designer should be an artist who codes or a programmer who designs. When I went back to college to study web design more seriously, I focused on learning the code side since I felt that art and design was a natural skill I had outside of school. I have taken art classes in junior high and high school, but I've been drawing all my life and even had... read more

Education or Business?

Funny how the education world has a lot of valid claims that business methods in education just “miss the mark.” Funny how business discredits education as a sound practice with such claims that education is “continuously so inefficient or ineffective.” Over the last ten years, I have heard statements like this. Generally, these statements are made when one of these entities is imposing itself... read more

Technology Integration Into Classrooms Requires Upkeep

Obviously, if you are in a classroom setting, having a cell phone ringing in the middle of a lesson distracts the train of thought for both the instructor and the student. Critics who are against confiscating cell phones, iPods, and other electronics that many elementary and secondary students carry with them to school cite examples of using technology to enhance the process; however, the lack... read more

Tutors Are Special People

Tutors are special people, who take the time to share their expertise in a particular field of knowledge. A valuable tutor will work themselves 'out of work', by empowering their pupil to peruse their own knowledge. Inspiring and individual to find their strengths, and acknowledge their weaknesses in learning, will only propel that individual to success. The more we understand ourselves, the... read more

Covering Theory While Teaching Pragmatically

Over the past year of tutoring I have come to the conclusion that students need to understand why they are doing things and not just taught how. The benefits of explaining the theory behind an action are that your student will be able to leap ahead because he or she understands at a root level rather than just being able to follow a recipe. When teaching web design, I have found that... read more
