Shape of Design

Posted on Feb 28, 2015 by Aalia Rahman Last Activity on Mar 1, 2015

The Shape of Design by Frank Chimero is a free odd little design ebook. Instead of talking about typography, grids, or logos, it focuses on storytelling, co-dependency, and craft. It tries to supplement the abundance of technical talk and how-to elsewhere by elevating why great work is done.  Shape is a book about objectives, and it zooms out to answer a couple big questions: How does it feel to make things for other people? And how can we do so in a meaningful, engaged way? -I do not own rights to this book. The description was taken from the book itself. You may read the book online, download the book or order a print.-

Create a promotional poster for a school event

Posted on Feb 21, 2015 by Jim Babbage Last Activity on Feb 21, 2015

Select an upcoming school event (Black History Month was one of my favorites) and have students work in pairs to create an event poster, using images they have created themselves, along with supplied artwork such as a guest speaker photo, school logo and promo copy about the event. Encourage students to research public domain imagery to help add more visual strength/relevance to the poster and to learn about copyright. During the creation of the poster, students should post iterations of the work on Behance, using WIP. Teachers and students can post helpful, constructive feedback during the creation process. Once the poster is finished, students should post the final work as a project, link it to the WIP and make sure that they share credit and attribution to their partner and list the external resources they used to finish the project. After the assignments are submitted, don't just grade them; invite a range of faculty and staff to view the final work and pick their top three posters. Once the result... Read More

Adobe and the Australian Curriculum The Australian Curriculum is being developed by ACARA (Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority - http://www.acara.edu.au) as a nation wide curriculum framework for all Australian States and Territories. It began to be implemented in 2013 and continues to be developed and implemented throughout the country. The Australian Curriculum is based on the Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians (2008) which emphasises the importance of knowledge, skills and understandings of learning areas, general capabilities and cross-curriculum priorities as the basis for a curriculum designed to support 21st century learning.

Environmental Booklet

Posted on Jan 7, 2015 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Feb 13, 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.
