Adobe Voice Planning Sheet

Posted on Aug 15, 2014 by Joel Aarons Last Activity on Aug 15, 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.

Advanced Typography / Neighborhood

Posted on Aug 11, 2014 by Andrew Kutchera Last Activity on Aug 11, 2014

The following assignment is done over three class periods. Students are encouraged to really think about the place that they are studying, rather than just creating a slick branding typographic treatment. Students have had great results because they explore how a variety of letterforms can come together in one or two words. ————————————— Choose a local neighborhood with which you are familiar. Develop a list of eight characteristics you want to convey. Edit this list down to four or five complimentary terms. You will design the name of the neighborhood to reflect your entire list of  concepts. Note that this is not specifically a logotype project, although these skills will be useful in designing identities. Your project could include – but is not limited to – modifying letterforms, combining diverse typefaces, altering the baselines/kerning, handwriting, and photography. In the sec... Read More

Advanced Typography / Phrase Exploration

Posted on Aug 10, 2014 by Andrew Kutchera Last Activity on Aug 11, 2014

I like the exercise described below since it offers students a way to explore the way letterforms interact, and it also prompts a discussion of the meaning of letterforms, as well as typographic terminology. This exercise also requires that students really dive into the software and explore the how to use multiple programs within one project. ____________________ Select an adage or proverb. Search for typefaces or lettering samples which feel appropriate for your message. You should employ magazines, type specimen books or your own photographs as your material. You will use your samples to create eight collages which spell out your phrase. It's important to select a wide range of typographic choices, not just ones that make sense on first viewing. In the second phase, you will select the most successful collage and redesign it six times using the computer. Make sure to keep the underlying concepts and rough composition, but test...

Typography / Kerning Exercise

Posted on Aug 10, 2014 by Andrew Kutchera Last Activity on Aug 21, 2014

After I explain the syllabus in the first class period, I have students dive right into a kerning exercise. While the Adobe Software in general and type designs in particular have become so much better over the years, it seems that new students don't really see the micro adjustments that are necessary (or possible) with kerning. So, I have them kern one word using Trajan – by hand! After they layout their letters on their desk, they glue their results in the middle of a horizontal sheet of paper. Depending on the confidence of the student, the hand's on part of this exercise can take any where from 20 minutes to 45 minutes. After evaluating their results, they move to the computer and they choose a different word to kern using Illustrator. They are able to see and kern much better after working by-hand first. After we discuss their digital results, I like to show this video (see below) which discusses the origin and current meaning of Trajan (movies). While the video seems light, it's the perfect...

Informal learning and identity formation in online social networks by Christine Greenhow* and Beth Robelia

Posted on Aug 7, 2014 by katherine Yamashita Last Activity on Aug 7, 2014

This review is from one of my students: Colin Couchman: I think that Greenhow & Robelia articulate quite well the issues inherent in negotiating identity politics in a social media age.  Within the article, they discuss issues of identity within social network sites and question aspects of digital citizenship, technology fluency, and the viability of such platforms within learning environments. This article could be of particular interest to those teaching within the secondary panel, higher education, school administrators, and/or management in higher education. Kathy's additional comments, I think this article is important as it looks at how extensive Social Media applications are in youth and young adult "real lives" and how excluded or restricted the use of these media in education. Fascinating findings worth the read for those who are interested in transformative curriculum development. Article Citation: Greenhow, Christine andRobelia, Beth(2009) 'Informal learning and...

Self Grading Quiz

Posted on Aug 5, 2014 by Jody Campbell Last Activity on Aug 22, 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

Simple Logo Project

Posted on Aug 5, 2014 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Aug 16, 2014

This article by John McWade sparked an idea. What if students were asked to read it and then asked to design their own simple, elegant brand using John's advice and examples? The personal logo/branding project is my way of introducing design fundamentals & Illustrator (appropriate type, kerning, tracking, leading, the Shape Builder Tool, the Align Panel, etc.) and it almost always begins with the most hideous results imaginable.* Perhaps this approach will yield better initial results. *Olivia, the student featured in that video is now a third-year design student at NAU.
