Important tech stuff to organize before you come - Super incredibly important*****

(We hit the students with a fire hose of information.  If this prep work isn't done then they will be behind from the start.   So make sure they do all of the steps or they will struggle to keep up simply because they are having to fumble with tech issues.)

  • Enough room cleared on your phone so that you can take ample photos
  • Fully charged with a charging cable and plug
  • Lightroom App downloaded
  • Telegram App downloaded - this is where we will be sharing our images during the workshop and staying connected afterward.
  • Links to those apps are found here:
    • Apple
    • Android
    • Here is the link to the Telegram channel you will need to join once you have got the app on your phone.
      • Log in and please introduce yourself the following way.
        • Hi I'm __________________  from _________________________ school.   We are from this region ____________________________.
        • Then post your favourite image you have ever photographed or piece of art you have created.
        • And if you like you can also post your Instagram page or website if you have one.
      • This is how your students will be introduced to the growing body of VIsual Poets from around the country as we travel this year.
      • It is also where we will be posting our work during the workshop and afterwards so getting on there before the class is incredibly important to the class flow.
