Introduction to InDesign-My Faculty Magazine

Posted on Apr 15, 2014 by Kari Kirsch Last Activity on Apr 15, 2014

The resource is a tutorial on how to create a magazine cover for those new to InDesign. The tutorial covers placing images, master pages, and typography. I originally created this tutorial to share among my fellow teachers who also wanted to learn the program, but it has proven to be just enough information for students to get their feet wet and find humor in the graphics as well.

Simple Machines - The Screw

Posted on Mar 31, 2014 by Brian Dawson Last Activity on Mar 31, 2014

This simple animation shows how a screw is made by wrapping an inclined plane around a cylinder.  Although no calculations are required to make this simple machine do work, students will learn the effect of an applied rotational force (screw driver) and how the distance that force is applied to will convert to a linear force with the screw.  The iOS widget for iBooks, the .oam file for DPS (InDesign), the .html file and the Edge Animate files (with all assets) are attached.  The actual web animation is posted on the weblink.  Edge Animate was used to create the interactive animation and Fireworks was used to edit the image files.  The widget will be included in my latest iBook titled "Simple Machines" coming soon to the iTunes Bookstore (free download).

Color Calibrating your mobile device

Posted on Mar 18, 2014 by Clint Balsar Last Activity on Mar 18, 2014

If you already calibrate your monitor(s) with an X-Rite product such as the ColorMunki Display, then you may also want to take advantage of the mobile app they have released in partnership with Pantone. It is called ColorTRUE and is said to allow you to calibrate any mobile device for truer color. The app is free, but if you don't already calibrate your monitor(s), then you can get one from X-Rite for about $75.

An inductive approach to learning available fonts in computer Lab

Posted on Mar 14, 2014 by Wayne Kijanowski Last Activity on Mar 14, 2014

In an InDesign/Desktop Publishing class we have a session where we want students to explore the range of existing fonts available to them as well as adjustments that can be made to them. While it is true, we've distorted some fonts (something we admonish is not desirable later in the course) our goal here is familiarity with the tools.  Famous quotes, and song lyrics work well for this exercise. Special characters, and open type options are also introduced. Follow up homework is students have to create something similar of their own.

Get a grip on GREP …and what it's for

Posted on Mar 12, 2014 by Lukas Engqvist Last Activity on Mar 13, 2014

This is a presentation in InDesign that can be used to demonstrate how we can use powerful Find/Change functions in InDesign. It is linked to presentation given 12 March 2014. Assumes basic knowledge of InDesign, Paragraph Styles, Character Styles and general ability to apply skills from one situation to another. It's hard but can save 100's of hours in real world production.  Many times we get junk text that needs to be cleaned. Human error is the biggest cause of reprints, so we want computers to do the tricky parts for us. It does matter that text has a good semantic structure, especially if we later want to use that text for other media. Having good semantic structure also frees us to be creative and try out options like choosing between indents or blank line. For lesson plan I recommend using raw text files from any complex text will do (preferably text more than 200 pages). Edit: Added a resource of a blank InDesign and IDML file with paragraph styles that conta... Read More

Getting a Pulse on Student's Understanding of Subject Matter

Posted on Mar 11, 2014 by Wayne Kijanowski Last Activity on Mar 11, 2014

If at any time I ask students: "anyone having problems, need help?"...silence. So in the third week of our Ps and Id classes, I pass out this "quiz". It is purposely fun to get them to lower their guard so I can get a pulse on how they are progressing.  Should they choose "Tilt" "More Tilt" or "I'm not sure I'm getting it" I purposely invest more time with them for the remainder of the course. Seems simple BUT IT WORKS and it has rescued many student from surviving the course to prevailing.  This one is for the Desktop Publishing class but the Photoshop one is the same just different app icon and colors.

Contests for Graphic Arts

Posted on Mar 9, 2014 by Deila Caballero Last Activity on Apr 3, 2014

This website is a great place to find contests that your students can participate in. Submitting work to a festival or contest I think is a great experience for students of all levels. Some of these contests could also be inspiration for a good class project or extra credit assignment. Graphic Competitions

Marketing Project

Posted on Feb 27, 2014 by Kevin Cagno Last Activity on Feb 27, 2014

The Marketing Project is a project that I give my 11th graders as a review at the beginning of the year. It is a group project used to help them build on their soft skills through using teamwork and time management. The project takes about 6 weeks to complete and ends with a presentation. I give the students the name of a non-profit organization, this year it was Kiva, and they then have to do a marking project that includes, target audience research, logo design, bill board, brochure, website and 30 second commercial. There are due dates every couple of weeks and they are graded on the individual elements and then on the project as a whole. I teach mini-lessons as refreshers throughout the project for the students that require some remediation.
