Hello to all Tech pupils… a little update from the Tech Dep

All S1 and S2 pupils have now been added to a Microsoft team. From today (Monday 30/3/20) we will start to upload materials, tasks and quizzes for you to work on at home.

S3 pupils should already be part of a team and be continuing with their studies. If your teacher has not yet provided you with any directions don’t forget you can continue to practice your sketching skills or have a go at some past papers – click here

S4 to S6: We are still waiting on confirmation from the SQA on the exact details for 2019/2020 assessment. We will update you as soon as we know more. If you are planning on returning to the dept next year, you should also practice sketching or have a go at some past papers. 

 

Free trial software

In school we currently use SERIF pageplus for desktop publishing in graphic communication and creating research pages in design & manufacture folios and so on…

SERIF has recently re-branded as Affinity and due to the effects of COVID-19 pandemic they are currently offering a 90-day free trial on their entire software suite.

You can download for Mac or Windows desktops and also for your ipad.

They are also offering a massive 50% discount for users who would prefer to buy and keep the apps, including iPad versions.

These products are equally as good (if not better) that the popular titles from Adobe such as Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign.

They also offer excellent downloadable guides and great videos: Videos and tutorials
