Creating an Interactive DVD Menu

Posted on Mar 14, 2014 by Tony Bolder Last Activity on Mar 28, 2014

I've always felt that creating assignments for students requires a lot of thought in how the assignment is designed. Students need to become fully engaged with the assignment brief right from the first read. Hence, I now create fully interactive assignment briefs that allow students to continuously engage and update whenever they can. This I think keeps their interest up in the document, and hopefully promotes creativity. This assignment is based on the planning and creation of pre-production documents for an interactive DVD menu. The students have already completed an assignment on the theoretical aspects of digital interactive design. The final assignment will be the actual production of their designed interactive DVD menu.

FIVE is a collaborative project for secondary students. The lesson is deliberately open to interpretation and variation to accommodate various curriculums, ideas, techniques, themes, or approaches to the concept of five. What does 5 mean?What does it mean to you? It could be… * 5 exposures of a photograph* 5 related scenes of a video* 500 words of self-expression* A sculpture in the 5th dimension* A 5 panel drawing * 5 seconds of sound * The 5 senses  * A 5 color painting …or you can shock us with your own surprising interpretation of a work of art about ‘5‘.

Whew. Worked on this for a long time. There is so much that is involved in Infographics! If you haven't checked out the professional development for Infographics, do it - it is really great: So this is a unit that I designed to introduce students to infographics, the different styles, how to choose the right visual vehicle, and ultimately the task of developing an infographic on the world population of stray dogs. Included in the .zip file is: A 6-page student information packet with steps, tips, diagram, rubric, etc. And a 3-page unit-planning guide. Both are in interactive .pdf format with lots of hyperlinks, and also in InDesign .idml format so that you can revise and customize to fit your needs.  Please - I need your feedback. A project plan is never finished - with your help I will revise it and add to it to create something that will really inspire and invigorate students! Also, I have a self-guided In... Read More
