Adobe Acrobat for Portfolios

Posted on Sep 19, 2014 by Clint Balsar Last Activity on Sep 19, 2014

This professional development session plan is aimed at helping my participants create a PDF portfolio by using Adobe Acrobat Pro. I have used Adobe's FormsCentral to create both a Pre-event questionnaire form and an Event feed-back form. A handout has been included to allow participants to have key points, as well as a space for a few notes. By the conclusion of this workshop, all participants will be able to begin the process of creating a PDF portfolio from varied resources and understand the benefits of building them for both their course instruction and their own personal/professional artifacting. This will be an introduction that is intended to encourage further usage and exploration for the motivated, intrinsic adult learner. All participants will be encouraged to develop a unique backdrop and custom header to begin exploring the benefit of creativity to their portfolio.

How do we prepare students to participate in a more creative society? View this recorded session, featuring Mitch Resnick of the MIT Media Lab for a discussion of new technologies and activities designed to help children think more creatively. About the session We live in a world that is changing more rapidly than ever before. Much of what we learn today will be obsolete tomorrow. Success and happiness depend on the ability to think and act creatively. In short, we are living in the Creative Society. But there is a problem.

What is Math? (seriously)

Posted on Sep 17, 2014 by Calculus Academy Last Activity on Sep 17, 2014

Every person has taken math in school some time in their life. BUT, why don’t we have a clear definition of Mathematics? What on earth are we studying? What kind of education puts you through 12 years of math and doesn't even explain to you what it is? Its funny/sad how we can't even define it in even a slightly coherent way. Which tells us a lot about how intelligent we and our teachers are. Doing a google search on "what math is" doesn't really help either. So I attempted to answer the question "what is math", and also since it is very close to science, I tried to explain "what is science", and compared them.

Engaging Students with Adobe Voice

Posted on Sep 16, 2014 by Eliot Attridge Last Activity on Sep 18, 2014

This is a lesson based around getting staff to learn how to use Adobe Voice. It also gets them to think about how it could help students with literacy issues become more engaged as well as giving a voice to special target groups. In NZ the target groups are Maori and Pasifika, but these could easily be altered to match the situation elsewhere in the world. The Voice_Help_Sheet is a sheet so that staff can reference it if they cannot get immediate help from me. I have designed it so that the sheet can be skimmed and, hopefully, the learner may pick up other ideas as they go through. The other sheet (Voice_Task_Sheet) is a sheet giving task and discussion instructions. Of the two exemplar Voice presentations, I created the first and the second is one that explains a scientific concept (so illustrating a different use). I have not included the exit slip as part of this download- this very much depends upon you personally and whether you think it was better to have an electronic form submitted.

Weekly Lesson Plans Semester 1, 2014

Posted on Sep 3, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Sep 11, 2014

I always like to look at how other teachers sequence their teaching, so here are my first semester scope and sequence plans for my Art classes and my Computer classes. The second semester is when I really get going heavy with Adobe software. I teach in Tainan, Taiwan and I am surprised that the students are not more tech-savvy. Anyway, I welcome your input and suggestions. The Art plans have a lot more links. I use the free online program: www.commoncurriculum.com to do all my planning.
