Environmental Booklet

Posted on Jan 7, 2015 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Jan 10, 2015

This project is similar to the Story Book project, but instead of writing and illustrating a story, students must write about environmental issues from the cube. Cause, effects, and solutions are the main themes here. To do the assignment,students roll the "Enviro Cube" - template for the cube is included - and then they write an article, illustrate it, and produce a final, clean 12-page book. This is an instruction sheet, template for pre-production sketches, extensive rubrics, templats for the "Enviro Cube" and InDesign Templates for printed and digital versions of the project. The  cube template can be altered for other uses as can the unique page configuration for the printed book. The project can be done completely by hand or it can be done using illustrator and printed out, or the final product can be a product viewed digitally - it is up to you and the students. Suggestions and rubrics are included for both hand-done and digitally produced.

Creating Interactive Rubrics with Acrobat Pro

Posted on Dec 26, 2014 by Candie Witherspoon Last Activity on Jan 6, 2015

This is a Professional Development Training Plan that I created as my final assignment in the Adobe Train the Trainer Course. Included with this Training Plan for Using Acrobat Pro and FormsCentral for Creating Interactive Rubrics is a copy of a Workshop Sign-up form, A KWL like pre-assessment survey form, and an Exit Survey or Feedback form. I love the templates provided through Adobe FormsCentral. They are great! Make your assessment process less painless by learning how to convert old Rubrics into interactive ones by simply scanning and tweaking, or start with a new file and create it directly in Acrobat Pro. I have also attached several AdobeTV videos on using Acrobat to be viewed as extra content information. This is just the tip of the iceberg.

Animation in the Classroom? Yes you can, it is easy.

Posted on Dec 15, 2014 by Trevor Milevskiy Last Activity on Jan 9, 2015

Animation is a powerful tool to use in the classroom, however many think that creating a simple animation can be very difficult. This PD should help those who are willing to try something new by creating two types of animations using the motion feature in Photoshop. I have had the opportunity to present this PD to a group of 24 adults recently. While the plan worked, one of the biggest challenges was the amount of time allowed for the session. By the time all the participants were ready to begin I lost 5 minutes which meant that an already tight session became more so, in terms of the time allocations. To overcome this the PD plan has been changed from one session to two sessions. Another challenge was that some of the participants did not bring their computer to the session which meant they had to work with another person. While this was not ideal it did allow for those with limited skills to work with participants with better skills. All the feedback provided by the participant... Read More

Advertising and Critical Thinking

Posted on Dec 7, 2014 by Craig Richardson Last Activity on Jan 23, 2015

Advertising and Critical Thinking Skills Advertisement is a powerful manipulative force as well as a powerful creative force. Learning how to identify the different strategies used by advertisers and how they are used is an important life skill and involves critical thinking skills.   One project involves having students first evaluate advertisements from different media and brainstorm on the different strategies they believe are being utilized and how effective they believe them to be and whether they are used alone or in tandem.   Second, students will learn about different advertising strategies by watching video and reading articles before creating a summary chart.   Third, students will use various media to create their own advertisements using digital manipulation including still photos and video as well as audio effects.   Fourth, we will explore our views on the ethics of digital manipulation and the inaccurate messages they convey in both advertising and other medi...
