Standard Practical Exercise Reflection Sheet

Posted on Jan 27, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Jan 27, 2015

I use this for every practical exercise I have my students undertake (whether it is animation, photographic, film, planning, whatever).  I have students collate all of these together as a sort of a practical journal - the end result is a go to cheat sheet for all the skills we have covered. It is a brief selection of questions (with prompts) and is broad enough to suit any practical task. It is designed to be done by hand in the last 5 or 10 minutes of a practical session.

Tasty Tuts video tutorials

Posted on Jan 22, 2015 by Keith Shafer Last Activity on Jan 26, 2015

Hello, I just wanted to share what I believe to be some of the best, easily understandable tutorials available outside of AdobeTV. Gareth David of London, England's Tasty Tuts has a slow, enjoyable way to follow along and supplies all the assets and resources you need to complete the projects. Best of all too, is that they are all on Youtube and free. They helped me immensely, and I highly recommend them to anyone wishing to learn Adobe's core applications. Mr. David is always adding more, and has several other outlets to explore as well, including his own site, a blog,facebook, twitter, and more. Below is the text from the Tasty Tuts Youtube "about page" as well as a link, and I hope you find all this helpful. Cheers, Keith  Design & digital arts creative video tutorials.

From beginners to those that are highly skilled, TastyTuts offers a wi... Read More

Environmental Booklet

Posted on Jan 7, 2015 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Jan 10, 2015

This project is similar to the Story Book project, but instead of writing and illustrating a story, students must write about environmental issues from the cube. Cause, effects, and solutions are the main themes here. To do the assignment,students roll the "Enviro Cube" - template for the cube is included - and then they write an article, illustrate it, and produce a final, clean 12-page book. This is an instruction sheet, template for pre-production sketches, extensive rubrics, templats for the "Enviro Cube" and InDesign Templates for printed and digital versions of the project. The  cube template can be altered for other uses as can the unique page configuration for the printed book. The project can be done completely by hand or it can be done using illustrator and printed out, or the final product can be a product viewed digitally - it is up to you and the students. Suggestions and rubrics are included for both hand-done and digitally produced.
