This presentation tool, based on a lesson created by Yelena Rivera-Vale and Kristina Chatfield for their GT 1000 course, introduces first year students to community organizations working on initiatives in the local Atlanta area. Interviewing members, actively participating in organizational activities, and then reporting on these experiences allows students a chance to not only further explore the ways that Georgia Tech actively partners with community organizations but also offers a chance to see some of the successes produced by these partnerships first-hand.
It's one thing to be able to articulate what sustainability means, and it's another thing to be able to communicate your ideas through visual design, but this poster design tool does both. Through this tool, students use poster campaigns to raise awareness about Georgia Tech's sustainability practices. While many students already have some skills with design software and photography, here they'll practice design skills using Adobe software available in the library, the Multimedia Studio, or through the Virtual Lab.
