How to Add Fire, Flames and Fire Related Special Effects to an Object

Posted on Sep 30, 2014 by Melinda Cowen Last Activity on Sep 30, 2014

This lesson plan provides an outline that discusses how to add fire, flames and other fire related special effects to an object or set of objects. We use a picture of a friend who likes to race, one of his favorite cars and lots of fire, explosions and flames to build the effects. As this is a super hero theme, he is the ordinary hero walking away from the flames without a scratch. This project shows a fun way to develop a feel for special effects such as adding fire to an image.

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.

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

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.
