PhoneGap Jumpstart

Posted on Apr 25, 2015 by Joseph Labrecque Last Activity on Apr 25, 2015

I’ve always found that getting started with PhoneGap if you hadn’t used it before (and sometimes even if you have) to be an exercise in frustration which even when it all goes well… takes some time and dedication.  Well now we have some really nice tools to make the whole process much, much nicer! This tutorial guides you through a workflow using the desktop app, Brackets, and the mobile app - much better :)

Making a crossfade video clip with Adobe Photoshop

Posted on Apr 24, 2015 by Colin Maxwell Last Activity on Apr 24, 2015

In this tutorial you will learn to take two photographs and combine them in Photoshop to create a short video clip with a fade effect between the two images. This example uses an old photograph and a recent photograph of the same location to show the changes over time. This tutorial uses the video editing features that can be found in Adobe Photoshop. This tutorial could be used as part of a Geography or History class to examine the changes in an environment that happen over time. For example you could use images of different seasons of the year, or like this example, a historic image and a recent image of a street location.

10 Tips to Achieve Creativity and Innovation in Education

Posted on Apr 17, 2015 by Rafiq Elmansy Last Activity on Apr 18, 2015

Our current world is evolving more rapidly than the capacity of any existing education system. The challenge of learning is getting even harder for the next generations. We do not have a prediction of how tomorrow will look like, but we know that flexible process models are able to face the changes comparing with fixed-style models; we know that the ability to adapt helped our ancestors to survive on this planet for about six million years. This leads us to the question; what is the most important skill to teach our kids in schools? The answer:  How to build creative and innovative minds that can adapt and face future unpredictable challenges. Albert Einstein, Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg and Larry Page provide successful examples of how adopting innovation in education can help in building creativity and better abilities in order  to solve problems. In this article, I try to explore the different actions that can be taken during class sessions to improve creativity and innovation for both young an... Read More

9 Squares

Posted on Apr 16, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Apr 16, 2015

An international collaboration of 9 different designer/animators. Each designer creates an abstract, 350px, 3 second animated square to make up a single GIF loop, from a 4-colour palette. Just for fun. Twice a month. Probably. I'm so stealing this for a classroom project. Lots of room to modify the parameters, too.
