All courses are designed to meet the needs of diverse learners with active, hands-on lessons. Please let me know if there are any additional ways that I can support or accommodate your learner in this course. 
Camera or phone/tablet with a camera 
Objects and/or people around the house to photograph 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Some learners may need assistance with finding the best way for them to share their images. In the past learners have needed adult help with uploading photos from their cameras or other device or even logging into Outschool on the device that they use to take photos. Others share by making a video where they show the back of their camera or phone.
