It's all about expressing yourself when you talk, text or surf the web on your cell phone! How your cell phone looks can be considered an extension of your personality and should be as unique as you are. Cell phone skins are on demand and are the new way of creating unique and artistic ways of standing out from the crowd. In this unit, students learn how to create their own cell phone skin based on their own personality and what represents them.

In addition to the CTE/STEM focus of the unit/project lessons, educators will find academic lessons in Math and English Language Arts (ELA) that supplement the primary core area of study. *Note: Students should have basic Photoshop and Illustrator experience.

The structure of this unit and the materials contained within it were created by Gayle Nicholls-Ali (CTE), Casey Byington (Math), and Ken Lovgren (ELA) with support from the CTE Online curriculum leadership team and detailed coordination provided by the Course Specialist Gregg Witkin.
