FCS / CTE Training For Fashion Design Teachers

.
* Fashion teachers love Digital Fashion Pro Academic because it comes with training so that they can learn the program quickly and begin utilizing it with career and technical education students. It comes with over 4 hours of step by step video instruction and a step by step electronic PDF training guide. Lessons will help teachers master Digital Fashion Pro so that they are fully capable and confident to teach the program to their students.
.
.
Digital Fashion Pro also fits perfectly into STEM programs falling under the technology curriculum. STEM is becoming an increasing focus among our nation’s high school classes. The push to have US Students engage with more technology is very important and we are happy that we can aid in this area with Digital Fashion Pro. * The US Department of Labor – Bureau of Labor Statistics States: “Fashion designers use technology to design. They must be able to use computer-aided design (CAD) programs and be familiar with graphics editing software,” as one of the things necessary to be a fashion designer today. Most Industry Leaders would say that the use of CAD is more important in fashion illustration today than the ability to hand sketch + it has more practical applications.

In 2014 we introduced our Careers and Technical Education CTE Lesson Plan Pack for K12 fashion design classes to further aid fashion design teachers with the ability to do even more with their students in terms of creating real world fashion. The K12 CTE Lesson Plan has been a huge success as we are hearing from many of our fashion design teacher clients and school districts. I think it has been successful with students because it makes their time in the class truly exciting in many ways while also teaching them real world skills. Fashion students are learning team building and team work as they work in the lesson plan to create their own mock clothing lines.

The fashion class is divided into group where each group then forms their own clothing. The K12 CTE Fashion Design Lesson Plan and Digital Fashion Pro Academic fashion design software has truly made an impact on all of our high school fashion classes that has invested in the package.

How to Introduce & Teach Digital Fashion Pro Design Method At Your School:

.

Digital Fashion Pro can be implemented into your school’s fashion design or art program. We have seen Digital Fashion Pro brought into various schools on our client list by IT teachers, fashion related teachers, art teachers, and home economics teachers. Here is the basic from purchase to implementation process works:

.

1. We do not offer site licenses. Each computer would need it’s own copy of Digital Fashion Pro and components.

.

2. The training portion of Digital Fashion Pro does not automatically install on the computer. The CD must be present in the computer to watch how to work the system. What we recommend is that the teacher is the only one with access to the learning tools of Digital Fashion Pro. Therefore, the teacher will be able to teach the Digital Fashion Pro method to the class while at the same time incorporating traditional design methods & curriculum into the teachings to help students excel even more.

.

3. Digital Fashion Pro will be perfect to implement into your school’s fashion design or art curriculum because with Digital Fashion Pro – students still have to do traditional design work and bring fourth their creative skills. Digital Fashion Pro makes the starting point easy by starting off a template and fabrics but the rest of the process of putting designs together is just like traditional fashion design. The program is a true art program and not a click this and that together kind of program. Students still have to exhibit design skills to create. The beauty is Digital Fashion Pro will help students expound on their creativity. The system also prepares them for our digital world of today and tomorrow. Possible lessons could even include students working together in teams to build teamwork skills on various projects.

.

We make it easy to make a seamless integration of Digital Fashion Pro into your overall fashion design or art structure. The other option at your choice is to make the learning tools available to the students but still let the teacher expand on the tools. It’s totally up to your institution how you go about implementation. We would love to add your academic institution to our growing list of academic clients from all over the world! With Digital Fashion Pro – Go Cutting Edge Digital and deliver industry approved fashion sketches. You can also add our 3 Book How to start a clothing line course to your fashion curriculum to teach students how to start their own clothing business after school. The Course can be taught and we sure your students will find it very valuable.

North Iowa Area Community College Quote – On Digital Fashion Pro

.

“The software has been a big hit and we continue to use it with girls groups to introduce them to technology in a fun way. I work with the Girl Scouts, 4-H groups, Consumer Science classes in the schools, and this summer a teen reading program at a local library that is focusing on Creativity. It really has been a big success.

.

We recently just had our annual event called Girls Gone Tech Day. We had 2 groups with over 60 middle school girls in one group and over 40 in the high school girl group for these events. We had them in on two separate days. During this event as well as during our regular events throughout the year we let the girls work with the software, and have them engage in activities where they start their own mock clothing lines. We also have it where young women from the college teach the software to the girls when they come in for the programs as well.

.

Thank you for all of your help with getting the software available for our use. It really has worked out very well.

.

Thanks again.

Mary Mosiman – IT Program Leader, North Iowa Area Community College”

Here is what a Fashion Academy Department Head stated from IADT:

“Arrington and Harper have created a real-world manual to starting a fashion business for any apparel designer. The Official Step-by-Step Guide to Starting a Clothing Line is a comprehensive handbook for fashion entrepreneurs, and having the inside track from two successful designers who started from the ground floor is absolutely inspiring!”

–Julie P. Fashion Design Chair, International Academy of Design and Technology — MI.
