Photoshop Collage

Posted on Sep 28, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Sep 28, 2014

I do this with my students every year and get good results. I select 8 photos- some stock, some that I have taken, and have the students create a photo using 5 of the photos. This is a culminating project where students are expected to use all of the Photoshop skills that they have used during the year. I insist that students make at least three different versions and save them using Layer Comps. I have the students turn-in .psd files which I check for the layer comps, layers, etc. The download contains instructions, rubrica list of vocabulary that students are expected to know, and several of the excellent Adobe .pdf "how to" files.

ACEC (Australian Council for Computers in Education) Conference Presentation - Oct 2014

Posted on Sep 27, 2014 by Tim Kitchen Last Activity on Sep 30, 2014

From an industrial society to a knowledge based society and now to a creative society. This presentation challenges teachers and school administrators to keep up with societies changes or risk being irrelevant in the 21st Century. Numeracy and literacy skills are important but not at the expense of creativity, collaboration and communication skills. The role of the 21st century teacher is not to self-deliver content but to facilitate the understanding of key concepts and skills, cater for a range of learning styles and encourage the use of a range of tools that interconnect to help students construct learning and be creative. Sir Ken Robinson says, “Creativity for me is not an option, it is an absolute necessity.” This presentation looks at some of the research surrounding the importance of creativity in education and provides samples of creativity being taught well using 21st Century industry standard tools in primary and secondary schools.

InDesign: Cropping

Posted on Sep 26, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Sep 26, 2014

Usually I associate cropping photos with Photoshop, but so many times it happens on the fly when working in InDesign. Students need to experiment with cropping - they tend to use photos exactly as they were taken.
