Advertising and Critical Thinking

Posted on Dec 7, 2014 by Craig Richardson Last Activity on Dec 8, 2014

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...

Assessment 2 (After Effects): Such GIFs Very Animating

Posted on Nov 19, 2014 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Nov 23, 2014

This assessment task is a good end to an After Effects unit and is a great test of a range of skills. I use this to assess the skills the students have learned running through my After Effects and Photoshop tutorials - which can be found on my Education Exchange profile. This is the second of 3 assessment tasks that I run at year 9 in Multimedia and Web Programming (but it could very easily be used at another level). This task also serves as a good exploration of students understanding of Copyright, Creative Commons and Usage Rights. Also included is a rubric designed for maximum student benefit. Achievement at each level is explained in clear, student friendly language. This is a new style of rubric I have been working on - I have received positive feedback from students and have found it easy to use. More feedback very welcome
