Photography Book with inDesign - Lesson Plan

Posted on Mar 1, 2015 by Candie Witherspoon Last Activity on Mar 2, 2015

Here is a lesson plan that I will be using for my Photography Class as their final assignment this year.  I have used this assignment in the past few years but not with inDesign.  I have used the free BLURB book creator desktop app that is downloadable from their website where we set up a store to print and sell extra copies of our student books as a fundraiser effort for my photography class to help offset costs for the course on things such as software renewal, photo printing paper, lighting equipment, etc.  We haven't raised a lot of money, because most are usually satisfied with their one copy, but I share the link with them to give to family and friends and tell them to encourage them to buy more copies as holiday gifts and to let them know that most of the proceeds go to support our class and to keep it going. As my class photography final I make them create a book designed from their best photos that they took this year.  They are required to make adjustments and manipulations to... Read More

Create a promotional poster for a school event

Posted on Feb 21, 2015 by Jim Babbage Last Activity on Mar 28, 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

My pledge to support creativity in education

Posted on Feb 5, 2015 by Matthew Miller Last Activity on Mar 18, 2015

In the hopes that this will inspire you to support creativity in education, I wrote my pledge on a whiteboard and challenged myself to fill the board with pictures, at least some of which told a bit of a story or related to stories I know.  I hope you enjoy it.  This is released into the public domain; if you'd like to use it for anything, feel free.

Tasty Tuts video tutorials

Posted on Jan 22, 2015 by Keith Shafer Last Activity on Feb 13, 2015

Hello, I just wanted to share what I believe to be some of the best, easily understandable tutorials available outside of AdobeTV. Gareth David of London, England's Tasty Tuts has a slow, enjoyable way to follow along and supplies all the assets and resources you need to complete the projects. Best of all too, is that they are all on Youtube and free. They helped me immensely, and I highly recommend them to anyone wishing to learn Adobe's core applications. Mr. David is always adding more, and has several other outlets to explore as well, including his own site, a blog,facebook, twitter, and more. Below is the text from the Tasty Tuts Youtube "about page" as well as a link, and I hope you find all this helpful. Cheers, Keith  Design & digital arts creative video tutorials. TastyTuts is an endeavour to inspire creative minds, looking to learn how to use Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign to bring imagination to life. From beginners to those that are highly skilled, TastyTuts offers a wi... Read More

Mac Lab Daily Quests

Posted on Jan 9, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Jan 23, 2015

This idea comes straight from World of Warcraft—from the Garrisons in the WoD expansion, specifically. The folks at Blizzard really delivered with this update. Now it's my turn. I intend to provide more resources—day in, day out—than my students could ever hope to complete, much less master. Why? To provide them with choices leading to a richer, more engaging learning experience. And, to provide me with an epic challenge to reinvigorate my own role in the classroom. Time to shake things up again. You can follow the experiment via our YouTube Playlist, the Quest Archive, or the featured quest each day on our home page.

Mac Lab Daily Quest Archive

Posted on Jan 9, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Jan 9, 2015

Starting the Mac Lab Video Tutorial Playlist on YouTube is phase one of my plan. Providing students with daily quests to accompany the videos is phase two. Archiving the quests (to stay organized) is phase three. I'm posting the link here on the off-chance a few of you will find something of value for you or your students. Note: The Mac Lab utilizes game mechanics and the experience is quite different when logged in. For more info about the full experience, visit the Game On Group here on the Exchange.

Mac Lab Video Tutorials (YouTube Playlist)

Posted on Jan 9, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Feb 11, 2015

After years of recording thousands of video tutorials and scattering them haphazardly around the sprawling Mac Lab website, I finally made the move to YouTube where all future videos will be archived. I plan on adding to the playlist on a regular basis and will share many of the specific video links here on the Exchange as individual resources. These tutorials aren't intended to be refined or polished. They're intended to be a daily extemporaneous exercise—though subject to rerecording when I become especially maladroit (which happens far more often than I'd like). The idea harkens back to the spirit of Confessions of a Video Tutorial Junkie. Kind of a Just do it! challenge to get the creative muscles back in shape.

Me Project - a visual compilation of who I am!

Posted on May 23, 2014 by Dena Wilson Last Activity on Aug 7, 2014

Nine revealing pieces compiled in a poster grid  where the student/designer visually reveals what they want another to know about them. A great project for an entire grading period. Each piece can be for a grade and then one for the whole. Students can present their projects to whole class which allows for them to get to know each other better. Requires research into things like professions or heritage. Uses photography and photo manipulation. Great end of school project when skills are developed and attention spans are short - focusing on themselves is priceless!

Photographic Composition Checklist

Posted on May 8, 2014 by Colin Byers Last Activity on Jun 2, 2014

Learning to take good compositions takes time and practice. However, it doesn't hurt to have a guide to follow. This video assists novice photography students with some of the most basic elements of composition. Although the tutorial does not talk about specific software. One should keep in mind that almost all photographs are edited, and that editing is a means to improve compositions further. So, whether you use Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, or Lightroom to organize and edit your photos; you will first need good compositions to work with.
