Digital Story Telling Project

Posted on Aug 7, 2014 by Dawnette Brenner Last Activity on Sep 22, 2014

Students will use Digital Images or Photos they take to come up with a story idea. From there they will get into groups and using brainstorming, creative thought and visualizing they will create the beginning to their own stories. Students will each use a computer or laptop and after a period of time rotate. Students will rotate and add to their neighbors story in their group. After 3 to 4 rotations, the students will place an ending onto their story and begin to find or illustrate images to add to their story, bringing it to life. Students will use Adobe products to illustrate, sketch images and to finalize their stories. Students will end by producing a Digital Story using Adobe Voice.

Geometric Polyhedra Lesson

Posted on Aug 7, 2014 by Dawnette Brenner Last Activity on Aug 7, 2014

A common core aligned geometry lesson curated and altered to support 21st century learning skills. Students will learn first about calculating the surface area of a polyhedra (they should have been exposed to this concept prior to this lesson but not completely necessary) and then draw and create a "net." Students will identify using key vocabulary, the necessary parts of the polyhedra and manipulate several virtual nets and shapes. Students will work in teams to create several paper versions of geometric shapes and finally after watching tutorials, make one in the Adobe product of their choice. Students will finalize their lesson and display their understanding of polyhedra in a final written essay, which should include a picture of their finished polyhedra.
