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...

Double Exposure Photography

Posted on Nov 26, 2014 by Jessica Gauci Last Activity on Nov 26, 2014

Traditionally the double exposure effect is produced by photographers using nothing but their camera to combine two separate photographs to create an abstract and surreal image. However, you can also mimic the effect in Photoshop, which actually gives more control over the final output with the ability to adjust and preview the effect as you go. Follow this step by step tutorial to create a double exposure effect yourself. You will blend two existing photographs together with the help of some simple clipping and masking techniques.

Visual Resume: Now and Then

Posted on Oct 25, 2014 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Dec 19, 2014

Instead of a traditional resume, why not ask students to create a visual resume? Instead of one resume, why not ask students to create two? One early in the year and one near the end—bookends marking the student's growth in an unmistakable manner. This idea was born while watching the DOES CREATIVITY MATTER IN THE WORLD OF WORK? webinar. Archived here. Thanks to Tacy Trowbridge for the inspiration! When Tacy showed this slide, the idea blossomed in an instant. The resume, a traditionally—well let's be honest, it's a boring project for most students. I've always asked the kids to create the project in Illustrator or InDesign but, even though they create art like this, I've always asked them to produce professional-quality traditional resumes. (Stupid teacher!) This page (ignore the inappropriate examples) is just the tip of the iceberg of what students might be inspired to create. I can't wait to share this project with the kids next week!
