I posted some links to my GIMP tutorials recently. Here are the assignment PDFs that I gave the students. These, along with the tutorials linked to below, provide a nice introduction to the program. It was a great improvement over how we started last year.
The assignments might have different names, but these are the topics
I have been very busy in and out of the classroom so far this new school year. My favorite part has been the time I've spent with Digital Media courses at our high school and middle school.

I actually never played that one with my students, but I was introduced to it early in my career by another teacher who claimed it was very popular in his classes. I always wanted to create a more lively computer version that checked the students' moves. I think this one accomplishes that well, but I noticed it can be sluggish on older systems.
In the way of credits, I created all the graphics, music and the game logic. Some sounds were built from files I found at FreeSound.org.
