Assessment 2 (After Effects): Such GIFs Very Animating

Posted on Nov 19, 2014 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Nov 19, 2014

This assessment task is a good end to an After Effects unit and is a great test of a range of skills. I use this to assess the skills the students have learned running through my After Effects and Photoshop tutorials - which can be found on my Education Exchange profile. This is the second of 3 assessment tasks that I run at year 9 in Multimedia and Web Programming (but it could very easily be used at another level). This task also serves as a good exploration of students understanding of Copyright, Creative Commons and Usage Rights. Also included is a rubric designed for maximum student benefit. Achievement at each level is explained in clear, student friendly language. This is a new style of rubric I have been working on - I have received positive feedback from students and have found it easy to use. More feedback very welcome

Environmental Posters

Posted on Nov 16, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Nov 16, 2014

This assignment is designed for grades 6-8. Students are to create a "Call to Action" poster for the environment using InDesign and Illustrator. I start by writing numbers 1 to 50 on scraps of paper. I crumple them up and students choose a piece of paper with a number. That number corresponds to one of the topics on the 50waystohelp website. Depending on the number of students in your class, you can have students pick two numbers or even three.  Color choice is the key to success with this project. Students will create simple "icon" flat art for their posters using Illustrator. Included is an interactive .pdf with links to sites that can be of help to students as well as a link to the main site: www.50waystohelp.com

Making GIFs from Movie Files

Posted on Nov 16, 2014 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Nov 16, 2014

This short tutorial will run you through one method of converting a video file into a GIF. GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) is a bitmap image format in widespread use across the internet. It is very suitable for simple film clips, game sprite data, and animations that are short and don’t have complex colour palette requirements.  This is becoming a really excited new avenue for the art and there are a number of different artists using GIFs in a range of cool contexts. Here are a few examples: http://www.oamul.com/gif/ http://giphy.com/maorisakai/ http://giphy.com/falcaolucas http://giphy.com/centolodigiani http://giphy.com/salih/ http://uproxx.com/webculture/2014/09/best-of-unnecessary-explosions-added-to-gifs-meme/ http://time.com/3388024/when-photos-come-to-life-the-art-of-the-cinemagraph/ For more info on how to animate see my tutorial series called Animating with Adobe After Effects.

Introduction to Typography: Relationship Typeface and dogs

Posted on Nov 7, 2014 by Chris Schnell Last Activity on Nov 7, 2014

A nice "warmer exercise" to start a collaborative discussion about expression/ characteristics of typefaces. See Poster design by grafisches buro: http://www.designboom.com/art/dogfonts-by-grafisches-buro/ Encourage the discussion "I like" versus "what works" Questions considering to ask (Think Pair Share): Can dogs be related to typefaces and vice versa? Which dog do you like? Which type do you like? Do you think the sample graphic works?
