hello, when writing exercises of Photoshop, InDesign etc. for my students, I often need elements of the interface (like the buttons of the Tools or (parts of) panels. Is there a place where I can download or get these interface elements as PNG's or JPEG's? It's a tedious task to make a screenshot of all those elements myself. Thanks for your help.

When I host workshops in Photoshop and After Effects I also get a number of students asking me where I get my inspiration from. The first site I refer them to is Art of the Title.com. http://www.artofthetitle.com/ What kind of sites do you refer students to for inspiration?

Hi Folks! We are doing a lot of professional development around the Common Core Standards and today was all about research. I realize that a lot of the papers that I assign are really a chore for 11th and 12th graders and I need to revamp how I address it. I want to give them a leading question that will get them fired up, but I want it to fall within my Design and Visual Communications curriculum. Any ideas?

Anyone using "flipped" lessons or "flip teaching" in technology/design disciplines?

The "flipped classroom" is a very popular trend in education at the moment. More and more teachers are using online video/multimedia content as a prerequisite for lessons, allowing class time to be opened up for more constructivist engagement. This type of approach seems particularly well suited to technology/design disciplines which require both hard skills (hardware, software etc.) and soft skills (critical awareness, collaboration, teamwork etc.). I am currently researching this area and w... Read More

Spatial resolution, typically some number of dots per inch, corresponds roughly to the ability to render graphic detail. On a computer screen, it’s the number of pixels per linear inch (ppi); on an output device, it’s the number of dots printed in a linear inch (dpi); on a scanner, it’s the number of pixels sampled per linear inch of the scanned image. The resolution of a raster image depends on the size it’s printed as well as on the pixel dimensions of the file. Pixel dimensions de... Read More

The human eye-brain system is arguably the most sophisticated computing system which we have access to. It can easily handle complex visual processing and pattern recognition tasks which would be impossible to attempt on even the most powerful supercomputer.If we are going to use our visual skills to assist us in data analysis, it is important to remember that they have evolved to handle quite different tasks from those encountered in a typical data analysis. The tasks which our visual system excels at are... Read More

Gestalt is a German word that means ‘good form’. Gestalt psychology developed early in the twentieth century and is based on the principle that ‘the whole is greater than the sum of its parts’. In terms of sight, it deals with the tendency for our visual system to perceive what we see as a meaningful whole.

Visual perception is the ability to interpret the surrounding environment by processing information that is contained in visible light. The resulting perception is also known as eyesight, sight, or vision (adjectival form: visual, optical, or ocular). The various physiological components involved in vision are referred to collectively as the visual system, and are the focus of much research in psychology, cognitive science, neuroscience, and molecular biology.

Recently I was doing some research and I found an article from Cathleen Norris at The University of North Texas and a past ISTE President. In the article she outlines 10 barriers to technology adoption. I have provided insights as to how this issues could be resolved.  Barrier #1 Lack of Vision:  I wonder how many of us have taken the time to create a vision of what our dream classroom looks like. More then just I want this or that, I'm talking about a real concrete plan with details. I h... Read More

Is it possible to achieve "Universal Technology in Education" with the disparity of resources in institutions of learning. Most large schools in wealthy areas have a wealth of hardware, software, and resources while the small rural schools, private schools, charter schools and home school students often do not have access to even the basic technology tools and resources.
