What software should I use for this project? Can I work on this at home? What do I need in order to . . .?

We often get these types of technology questions at AHS and the answer is often, "It depends." We decided to put together this resource to give you a few suggestions and tips about using various pieces of technology.

This site is organized by what you want to create (purpose), who you are creating for (audience), and how you are going to create it (tools). We highly recommend that you visit the pages in that order - purpose, audience and then tools, particularly the first time you visit here. Keep in mind that creativity doesn't always fit in nice, neat categories, so if you don't find what you're looking for in a particular category, browse through some others and see if you find what you need.

Note: This site owes a debt of gratitude and is heavily borrowed from this one.
