E pule kakou . . .

Aloha all,
I was trying to think so hard of a "techie" tip and finally gave up. I even googled "tips and tricks" for various programs and then thought "I can't blog about something I don't actually use!" Then, as I was sitting in my Papa Makua class, doing all kinds of protocal and thought about how we keep looking for a short pule to do to open our meetings. I had `A`ali`i write a pule in Hawaiian. He was worried about the grammar and structure of it so I asked Kelly C. to kökua by editing and doing an audio recording so you can hear the pronunciation. Hope it's helpful :)

E ho`omalu käkou
E kö mäkou makua i loko o ka lani
Mahalo no nä pömaika`i a pau. Mahalo no ke ali`i lokomaika`i o Pauahi a me këia kula nei. E `olu`olu, e kia`i iä mäkou i ke alahele küpono me ka lökahi.
Ke nonoi ha`aha`a nei mäkou i ka inoa o Iesu Cristo
`Ämene

`Unuhi (translation):

Our Father in heaven
Thank you for all the many blessings. Thank you for the generous Pri…

Highlights from the Adobe Photoshop SkillPath Seminar

Last week, Jenny Tanaka and I attended an Adobe Photoshop seminar in Waikiki at the DoubleTree hotel.

A  few major benefits of attending seminars like this include the following: seeing what is possible in the program, becoming better equipped to do research into Photoshop's features, and watching a "Photoshop guru" put some tricks into action.





In reviewing the highlights of the seminar, this post will focus on 3 things having to do with beginner-level use of Photoshop:
I.  ShortcutsII.  TricksIII.  Applications

I. Shortcuts 
One of the wonderful (albeit daunting) things about Photoshop is that there are multiple ways to do just about anything that needs doing. This can be pretty intimidating for a beginner, so it is good to start learning keyboard shortcuts if you want to start learning Photoshop. The early part of the conference went over a few of the shortcuts that our lecturers would be using throughout the day.

Basically, we were given a very small taste of the many, …

Online Teaching Conference 2017: Best Practices and Takeaways

Best Practices  In June of 2017, I attended the Online Teaching Conference (OTC) in Anaheim, California. Interestingly enough, this conference was originally catered to CCC educators, staff, and/or administration, being that there are over 100 community colleges in the state of California. 
 However, over the years, other external people have heard about the conference and wanted to learn from such a successfully school system, one of the largest community college systems in the nation as a matter of fact! The California Community College (CCC) System really does a great job of collaboration and forming a strong online community. They created a site called the Professional Learning Network (PLN) that all CCC faculty can access and collaborate on.

This reminds me of our monthly Professional Learning Community (PLC) as we utilize this time to learn from each other as well as share our knowledge with others who have interest. It would be great if we could form some type of resource site…
