Title: Graphics Literacy
Url: https://mcli.maricopa.edu/dvl/modules/graphics-literacy
Creator: Korkames, Gail
Publisher: Maricopa County Community College District
Description: From the Maricopa Center for Learning and Instruction at Maricopa Community College and Gail Korkames of Phoenix College, this page presents information about digital graphics using Microsoft Paint to digital visual literacy (DVL), the "set of skills that enable students to function in an increasingly digital and visual workplace." In this module, visitors will find an instructors' guide, a PowerPoint presentation, and an assignment with checklist for students to complete. The presentation covers the basics of computer graphics including the difference between raster and vector graphics, graphics software, file types, and a tutorial on using MS Paint. The assignment has two parts, each asks students to take an image (an existing graphic or a company logo) and modify it in a creative way. This is an excellent resource not only for courses or programs focused specifically on DVL, but for many other fields, as creating and modifying digital graphics for both online and print publications are increasingly important skills in the workplace.
