How can creativity and innovation enhance your Common Core strategy? Join Ron Beghetto of the University of Connecticut for a discussion of strategies you can use tomorrow in your school.

Answering Open-ended Questions through Video

Posted on Jan 27, 2015 by Henrietta Miller Last Activity on Jan 27, 2015

This lesson involves students creating a question of interest and then exploring and researching that question. They will collect Creative Commons images on the subject and then devise, record, and insert their own audio recording that answers their question. This lesson plan includes instructions and an example video file. The video was created by an Australian Year 6 student to share her understanding on her question, “What effect did the eruption of Mount Vesuvius have on the people of Pompeii?” This lesson could be adapted to meet other standards and age groups.

Storyboard template

Posted on Jan 18, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Jan 24, 2015

This is a storyboard template I use for the planning of any visual project - videos, animations, photography, flash projects, etc. It is adapted from classic storyboard templates to include the rule of thirds. I have found that this results in students naturally following the 'rule of thirds' when composing their shots even if this hasn't been explicitly covered. Also, I often tell my students, as a good rule of thumb, to storyboard about 20 to 30 shots per minute of film. Overall this generally results in better composition overall and a more engaging end product.  I have included links to Mike Browne's introduction to the Rule of Thirds, Brett Lamb's shot type examples, and a South Australian tourism advert that employs these concepts quite beautifully.  Mike Browne Brett Lamb Barossa. Be Consumed A good introductory exercise would be to attempt to storyboard shots from the advertisement.

Isolate part of an image using Photoshop Elements 8 & Magic Wand Tool

Posted on Jan 7, 2015 by James Cash Last Activity on Jan 7, 2015

In this video, the author uses Photoshop Elements 8 to first select, and then extract, the raven from the rest of the image. The primary tool used is the Magic Wand Tool which analyzes your image and looks for similar colours and brightness in order to select the area of an image that you want.  (Another selection tool, not discussed but worth experimenting with, is the Magnetic Lasso Tool which can be useful... but it can also be frustrating as it sometimes leads to unwanted results.)

Play the Pen Tool Game

Posted on Jan 4, 2015 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Jan 6, 2015

This is a hidden gem by Adobe that you can access from the What's New pop-up box when you open Illustrator CC. or you can go to https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/tutorials.html to find it. It seems geared for little kids, but it helps with pen tool skills in a big way.   Anyway, on the https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/tutorials.html page, click on Learn Essentials. Scroll down, and under the heading Create Artwork you will find Play the Pen Tool Game.  I am using it is all my classes.

My Flipped Classroom Experiment

Posted on Jan 3, 2015 by Mark Janke Last Activity on Jan 23, 2015

As part of the 2014 Adobe Generation Professional: Video course, I was asked to share a resource I made using Premiere about my flipped classroom.  This little video doesn't focus on Adobe products but utilizes them as I do a lesson for my students.   As an added bonus, it is a flipped report on flipped learning from early in 2014.  I've now done this for 2 years and the results haven't wavered.  Only one student has failed and that's because the student left all tests blank, turned in no homework, and was often truant.Class statistics: a. Students ages 15-19 b. Videos were each about 3-5 min (one concept each).  A whole lesson is about 10-15 min of instruction.  I made no changes to what I would traditionally share live in class. c.  Were there any students who did not bother to watch? A few at first. However, in our Moodle classes, I made quizzes to complete after watching (short 2-3 min) and I occasionally do examples from their homework. This is the same issue I wo... Read More

Creating Interactive Rubrics with Acrobat Pro

Posted on Dec 26, 2014 by Candie Witherspoon Last Activity on Jan 6, 2015

This is a Professional Development Training Plan that I created as my final assignment in the Adobe Train the Trainer Course. Included with this Training Plan for Using Acrobat Pro and FormsCentral for Creating Interactive Rubrics is a copy of a Workshop Sign-up form, A KWL like pre-assessment survey form, and an Exit Survey or Feedback form. I love the templates provided through Adobe FormsCentral. They are great! Make your assessment process less painless by learning how to convert old Rubrics into interactive ones by simply scanning and tweaking, or start with a new file and create it directly in Acrobat Pro. I have also attached several AdobeTV videos on using Acrobat to be viewed as extra content information. This is just the tip of the iceberg.
