Create a Website with Muse and Dropbox

Posted on Jul 13, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Jul 17, 2014

This is an interactive sheet of directions for students to create a website in Muse and use a Dropbox Public folder as the server. It is a great work-around for students who cannot afford website hosting, and it is a great introduction to Muse. There are no directions on how to use Muse. I teach InDesign before I teach Muse. Muse is very similar to InDesign, so the transition is not too difficult. I demonstrate Muse and then direct my students to seek out videos on The sheet contains assignment requirements, suggestions for content, and how to publish using Dropbox.  Also included is a rubric for the project. Finally, a quick, free solution for students to publish websites. In the past, their websites were never "live"- now that will change, and I am certain that their enthusiasm will change, too. I am collaborating with core subject teachers to have my students do one of the research projects as a website instead of a typed paper!

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).

Posted on Jul 7, 2014 by wendy yong Last Activity on Jul 7, 2014

This Project was curated for the purpose of students to get a chance to think creatively and to find a design solution from researching and imagining . Students get a chance to review the past and also to think about the future with no boundaries. Project Description : Find a product that has been around for at least 50 years. and look at how it was advertised 50years ago till today. Researched how this product was advertised in the previous decades, in order to find out the pattern that exist throughout the years. Explain why do they have that pattern.  With proper understanding, design an ad of the same product for the future. For example, Vacuum Cleaners throughout the years uses woman/housewives as the main model to advertised, why?. Imagine in 20 years from how, how should vacuum cleaners be advertised?

Data Visualisation

Posted on Jun 30, 2014 by Julie Golledge Last Activity on Jun 30, 2014

Students in Home Economics classes need to understand where foods are produced within Australia.  So that they can have an appreciation of how food travels to get to their plate.   Students could use different coloured dots for different food groups to highlight on an Australian state or the whole country where are food is grown. The dots could also be shown in different sizes to show the amount produced. Idea from Matt Hankinson - Adobe Education Exchange Site for the Vector Map which can be modified. This site shows where is Australia products are made by Australian Companies.

App Planning Lesson Plan

Posted on Jun 29, 2014 by Wendy Sandstrom Last Activity on Jun 29, 2014

It has been WAY too long since I last created a lesson plan. This is probably too basic, but the general outline is there. I talk about online course resource, but at this point it is fictional. We use Blackboard, so if I get to teach this as an actual class someday, that is what I would probably be using.

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!
