Creativity in Education is no longer an option, it’s an absolute necessity - Tim Kitchen March 16, 2015 - Melbourne

Posted on Mar 11, 2015 by Tim Kitchen Last Activity on Mar 17, 2015

This post features the recording of Dr Tim Kitchen's presentation in Melbourne on March 16 titled - Creativity in Education is no longer an option, it’s an absolute necessity. Abstract From an industrial society to a knowledge based society and now to a creative society. This presentation challenges teachers and school administrators to keep up with societies changes or risk being irrelevant in the 21st Century. Numeracy and literacy skills are important but not at the expense of creativity, collab-oration and communication skills. The role of the 21st century teacher is not to self-deliver content but to facilitate the understanding of key concepts and skills, cater for a range of learning styles and encourage the use of a range of tools that interconnect to help students construct learning and be creative. Sir Ken Robinson says, “Creativity for me is not an option, it is an absolute necessity.” This presentation looks at some of the research surrounding the importance... Read More

Change the World in Two Weeks

Posted on Mar 2, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Mar 2, 2015

I pitched a blue sky project to my students today (March 2). On Friday, March 13, they'll deliver their plan/artifact/evidence of what/how/why they did/will continue to do to "make the world a better place." On Monday, March 16, they'll each present their results to their peers. They may work alone or collaboratively but each must document the journey on his/her blog. The project intro is in the video (below). I also linked to this scene from Pay It Forward in the quest.  Personal shocker: Less that 10% of the students have seen Pay It Forward. The kids responded enthusiastically to the challenge and the classroom was abuzz with possibilities. It's going to be an interesting two weeks.

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

Lead By Example

Posted on Feb 27, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Feb 27, 2015

When we returned from winter break on January 5th I challenged my students to step out of their comfort zone and step up the creative effort. I felt the best way to make the challenge stick was to accept it myself so on the 4th I recorded a few videos, uploaded them to a YouTube playlist, and announced on the 5th that I'd add to the playlist every school day from that point forward. Crazy, eh? Teachers, like students, need a challenge. This is day 33 of a new series of Mac Lab videos (not counting finals and the first day of semester 2) and I'm currently on a 33 day hitting streak with 92 videos in the playlist. These tutorials aren't intended to be refined or polished (and they're not). They're intended to be a daily extemporaneous exercise—though subject to rerecording when I become especially maladroit (which happens all too often). The idea harkens back to the spirit of Confessions of a Video Tutorial Junkie. But because not enough kids were embracing the challenge,... Read More

The Puzzle of Motivation

Posted on Feb 25, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Feb 25, 2015

In this TED Talk, Dan Pink presents the case for changing the way we attempt to motivate our students (just substitute schools and students for business and employees in the talk).  After watching, you might realize that the real puzzle is why so many folks continue to resist the evidence or deny the validity of the research.  The Puzzle of Motivation

AMP Revisited

Posted on Feb 25, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Feb 25, 2015

This video connects directly with ZIM! Revisited. Both were recorded to remind this years' students of the foundation for our self-paced, student-centered learning environment. Dan Pink's Drive does a wonderful job of synthesizing a broad range of research leading to his Autonomy, Mastery, & Purpose triumvirate. We've used AMP, along with ZIM! with great success since the 2010/11 school year and I encourage other educators to consider implementing some degree of AMP and ZIM! in their own classrooms.

ZIM! Revisited

Posted on Feb 23, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Feb 23, 2015

The Zone of Intrinsic Motivation explained in six minutes. I recorded the video as a ZIM! refresher for my students. It's not a polished video by any means but I thought others might find it of value so I'm sharing it here as well. ZIM! in six minutes (6:06 actually) The ZIM! Venn diagram was inspired by Budd Caddell's How to be Happy in Business Venn on http://whatconsumesme.com and was repurposed with his permission.* Thanks, Bud!  *The page is currently a 404. Here's a copy of Bud's original Venn.

Practicing 3D shapes

Posted on Feb 23, 2015 by Fred Benitez Last Activity on Feb 23, 2015

This online applet is great for introducing students to 3D drawing based on 2D instructions. The student are given the top, front and side view of an object and are asked to create the 3 dimensional shape. The trick is that the applet also gives the minimum number of cubes needed to create the shape. The figure name will be yellow when you have the correct shape, and it will turn green when you have the shape with the correct number of cubes.  I used this applet  before getting into perspective drawing and when introducing engineering and architectural design.
