Art of Teaching: Best Practices from a Master Educator

Posted on Jul 14, 2014 by deston tanner Last Activity on Jul 20, 2014

Learn How to Teach from the Best of the Best The Art of Teaching is delivered by award-winning Professor Patrick N. Allitt of Emory University, one of The Great Courses' most popular professors. A distinguished teacher with more than 30 years of classroom experience and 5 years as Director of Emory College's Center for Teaching and Curriculum (designed to study and improve the art and craft of university teaching), he is the perfect instructor with whom to explore ways to become a great—or even greater—teacher. What's more: He enhances his lectures with candid and illuminating interviews with an all-star group of veteran Great Courses professors, some of the brightest teachers in higher education. Not only do you hear what they have to say about their roles as teachers, you actually witness them applying their tools and techniques in lecture halls, seminar classes, and even one-on-one student coaching. These teachers are John Hale, Director of Liberal Studies at the University of Louisvil... Read More

Animating Meiosis

Posted on Jul 8, 2014 by Eliot Attridge Last Activity on Jul 21, 2014

This is intended as a lesson in a biology class. The idea is to introduce animation first by getting the students in an earlier lesson in the unit to animate mitosis (which is simpler) using stop motion animation first. This is because they do not need any major software to do this and I have found in the past that stop motion is a good way in to capturing attention. The meiosis lessons focus on using software to create the animation, so progresses the students in their IT skills as well as their content knowledge. The level of detail that you go into for meiosis depends upon the level of the class. For example, a year 10 student may just show the division of a cell into four daughter cells in steps whereas a year 13 student would need to show each stage (anaphase, telophase etc).

Customizable Game Mechanics via Free WordPress Plugin

Posted on Jun 22, 2014 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Jul 15, 2014

For the past four years, my students and I, aided by a growing number of adventurous educators from around the world, have created a tool—a WordPress plugin called Game On—that all of us use to gamify our curriculum. A collection of resources here on the Exchange have chronicled that journey. Over 3,000 comments (and countless emails) from nearly 150,000 pageviews have helped to shape and refine our plugin's features. I never wanted to become a developer. I'm a new media arts teacher who just wanted to use game mechanics to provide additional motivation and engagement for "flatliners"—those students who never really seemed to give it their all. Today, there are any number of tools teachers can use to gamify their classrooms. But four years ago? The cupboard was bare. So we invented our own system. Our plugin is free. WordPress is free. Hosting is not—unless your district provides it (as mine does). Expect to spend $20 (good) to $30 (great) per month for your own gamifie... Read More

The Creative Process Flowchart

Posted on Jun 21, 2014 by Candie Witherspoon Last Activity on Jul 23, 2014

I created this in Microsoft Word and saved it as a .pdf using Adobe Acrobat Pro.  I then uploaded it to my Creative Cloud so that I can access it from any device. The purpose of this assess is to remind students of the steps or stages are are required in the completion of every project we do in my art classes.  I add it to the beginning of every new project introduction.  I post it on the bulletin board in my classroom so that I can direct a student's attention to it if I see that they are off task, or trying to skip any of the essential steps which they are always graded on.  All brainstorming and rough draft sketches are put into their sketchbooks, including any clips from printed materials such as magazines, internet, etc. that will be used as visual resources.  I also have them review the flowchart prior to turning in any assignment and ask them to go back through their work and make sure they have not left anything undone, or to check to see if there is any areas in the final...

Reproduction SCORM activity

Posted on May 31, 2014 by Eliot Attridge Last Activity on May 31, 2014

This is a SCORM module that can be inserted into most LMS (tested with Moodle). The content relates to Asexual and Sexual reproduction. This module was created in Adobe Captivate 7 (and updated in Captivate 8) and was used with a year 10 class. File size is 190Mb and it is zipped. When the folder is unzipped you can run the file (look for Reproduction MBC.htm in the unzipped file) This will generate an error message saying it needs to be run on the LMS, but you can ignore that as it will still run on your browser. This is the first SCORM module I have created, if you have suggestions, please indicate on the comments. Images and videos were all accessed from youtube and google images and I make no claim to copyright for them.

Me Project - a visual compilation of who I am!

Posted on May 23, 2014 by Dena Wilson Last Activity on Jun 17, 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!

Introducing Art-Heroes.org "Where Creatives Meet Causes"

Posted on May 21, 2014 by Kevin McMahon Last Activity on Jun 4, 2014

I wanted to introducing you to new educational program: art-heroes.org  In short, Art Heroes can connect your digital media students (who need to develop their portfolios for college applications and jobs) with local and global non-profit agencies (who need posters, websites, videos, etc. but cannot afford such creative services).  While your student designers, filmmakers, and web developers are welcome to join independently as "Art Hero Students", our greater hopes is that you will join as a member of the "Art Heroes Faculty" - and take advantage of Art Heroes as a way to provide your students with: 1) Real-world clients and experience. 2) Projects to enhance portfolios. 3) An opportunity to better the world with their artistic talents. While only 2 weeks into beta, we already have members at +40 colleges and high schools.  So please consider joining this fast growing program devoted to doing good with our digital talents - and feel free to forward this m...

Traditional Myths: Are They Still Relevant?

Posted on Apr 28, 2014 by George Botelho Last Activity on Apr 28, 2014

This project was based on work that I did with my upper-secondary English students in Papua New Guinea. The idea concerns the transition from traditional values held over a long period of time, to a modern world where many of the "old ways" are being lost in the race toward development and renewed self-identification. While the context for this project is Papua New Guinea as a developing country, the basic ideas in the traditional-to-modern framework could be adapted to a variety of contexts. Examples might include religion, how we entertain ourselves, free time, etc. The basic ideas of what cultures "value" may change drastically over generations. It is also useful to focus on where these values come from, and how they may have been compromised, adapted or replaced, to meet changes in society.

deviantART

Posted on Apr 27, 2014 by George Botelho Last Activity on Apr 27, 2014

http://edex.adobe.com/resource/3f-d026d/ I found this link to deviantART and the website is http://www.deviantart.com/ Their logo is "Where ART Meets Application" I do not use this site much, although my students try to encourage me to share my photos on it. For classroom work, it is a great resource because students can see and critique each others' work. In English class, it provides an opportunity to engage in speaking and general communication activities. Many of the students already are very good at post-processing their images, and creating real art from a simple photograph. I envy them for their abilities.

Sources For Copyright Free Images For Students.

Posted on Apr 23, 2014 by Mark Finlayson Last Activity on Jul 13, 2014

This has always been an issue. Our schools Copyright License allows pretty well free reign for instructional/educational purposes, but the problem comes when you want to share a work beyond the classroom, like on a website, a publicly available newsletter even a school exhibition. This article is a great resource and students can be encouraged to get into the practice of using these images rather than just grabbing anything.

I am Creative

Posted on Apr 23, 2014 by Mark Gatehouse Last Activity on Apr 23, 2014

I am Creative is a project run by the Ideas Foundation in the UK. They link major clients and advertising agencies with student groups to produce a response to a creative brief. Currently my students are undertaking an assignment from IBM looking at how computers will affect our lives in 5 years time. Next week we will be visited by the Client IBM and two agency staff from O & M advertising ( Google it) . they will then be advised on strategy and idea / product development either an animation or app. The learners will then have six weeks to develop both a cross media strategy and create particular artifacts. Before presenting the work to the Client. Successful students are taken onto the' Ladder' which is a scheme that will support learners through internships etc through University and coach them into their first job in advertising or any of the specialist sub genres. If you are teaching creative subjects  in the UK I recommend that you get in touch. This is their website http://www.iamcre... Read More
