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

Geometric Polyhedra Lesson

Posted on Aug 7, 2014 by Dawnette Brenner Last Activity on Aug 7, 2014

A common core aligned geometry lesson curated and altered to support 21st century learning skills. Students will learn first about calculating the surface area of a polyhedra (they should have been exposed to this concept prior to this lesson but not completely necessary) and then draw and create a "net." Students will identify using key vocabulary, the necessary parts of the polyhedra and manipulate several virtual nets and shapes. Students will work in teams to create several paper versions of geometric shapes and finally after watching tutorials, make one in the Adobe product of their choice. Students will finalize their lesson and display their understanding of polyhedra in a final written essay, which should include a picture of their finished polyhedra.

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!

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...
