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.

Adobe Illustrator Avatar/Character Page

Posted on Sep 24, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Sep 29, 2014

This is an Illustrator AI. file with two heads and a assortment of hair, eyes, noses, mouths for beginning Illustrator students to play with and learn the basics of dragging and dropping, changing colors, creating new colors, and hopefully advance to creating additional items for their avatars.  Simple clothes would probably be the easiest for students to attempt. I use this with students starting at Grade 3! It's never too young for Illustrator. Anyway - enjoy - use it however you wish. I welcome any feedback and additions!

Sowing the seeds for a more creative society

Posted on Sep 18, 2014 by Melissa Jones Last Activity on Sep 18, 2014

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. Most activities in children's lives, whether it's lessons in the classroom or games in the living room, are not designed to help children develop as creative thinkers. In this presentation, we will discuss new technologies and activities designed specifically to help children learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively, so that they are prepared for life in the Creative Society. we will focus particularly on Scratch, a new programming language and on...

Adobe Voice Planning Sheet

Posted on Aug 15, 2014 by Joel Aarons Last Activity on Sep 22, 2014

I find it useful in my class - since we have limited iPads - to have the students pre-plan their Stories. To this end, I created a planning sheet, that can be printed as many times as needed. The sheet contains space to plan two slides. Each plan for a slide includes space for: Notes (on what pictures/icons/captions are needed)Layout choiceScript for narrationRough sketch of the slide I find once the students have all this worked out, then the time needed to spend on the iPad is minimal and I can share it around to other students. I hope others find this useful.

Self Grading Quiz

Posted on Aug 5, 2014 by Jody Campbell Last Activity on Sep 26, 2014

I was asked by a number of members to share an example of one of my self grading interactive PDFs. So here is very basic version that you can modify for your own use.  I included a blank template that is secured with the exceptions being the ability to fill in fields and make comments. I set it up this way so the student can't reformat the quiz. I use to use MS Word but without fail I would quizzes back where the student would delete all the questions and just give me answers (sometimes I would just a single paragraph for a 20 question quiz!) or change the typefaces, etc.  To enter your own questions into this template go to properties and use the password  EDEX1 and then edit text under the tools option. I also included a graded example of the template and here you can see the text fields that the student uses to reply to a question are scrollable so if they need more room it does not reformat the whole quiz. So when I get a quiz back from a student I just check off the correct answers and... Read More

Creating a New Classic Work of Art Project

Posted on Aug 4, 2014 by Christia Bowden Last Activity on Sep 26, 2014

Have the students choose a classic painting they would like to manipulate and have them add, remove, and distort items to make it represent a book they just read, an historical place, or anything that is relevant to the class. Maybe it should represent them or convey a message of some sort. You can make it fit almost any content being learned. After they have created their image, have them share it with the class and explain it’s meaning. Having and creating the graphic representation will also help them retain what they learned better than they would without it.
