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!

Photographic Composition Checklist

Posted on May 8, 2014 by Colin Byers Last Activity on Jun 2, 2014

Learning to take good compositions takes time and practice. However, it doesn't hurt to have a guide to follow. This video assists novice photography students with some of the most basic elements of composition. Although the tutorial does not talk about specific software. One should keep in mind that almost all photographs are edited, and that editing is a means to improve compositions further. So, whether you use Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, or Lightroom to organize and edit your photos; you will first need good compositions to work with.

Lightroom Mobile

Posted on May 7, 2014 by Mark DuBois Last Activity on May 7, 2014

I created a weblog post covering some of the fundamentals of working with Lightroom Mobile (on my iPad). Since this is free software (you do have to have a Creative Cloud license to Lightroom to develop the necessary collections), I thought others might be interested in learning about this tool and its capabilities.

Traditional Myths: Are They Still Relevant?

Posted on Apr 28, 2014 by George Botelho Last Activity on Apr 28, 2014

This project was based on work that I did with my upper-secondary English students in Papua New Guinea. The idea concerns the transition from traditional values held over a long period of time, to a modern world where many of the "old ways" are being lost in the race toward development and renewed self-identification. While the context for this project is Papua New Guinea as a developing country, the basic ideas in the traditional-to-modern framework could be adapted to a variety of contexts. Examples might include religion, how we entertain ourselves, free time, etc. The basic ideas of what cultures "value" may change drastically over generations. It is also useful to focus on where these values come from, and how they may have been compromised, adapted or replaced, to meet changes in society.

Posted on Apr 27, 2014 by George Botelho Last Activity on Apr 27, 2014 I found this link to deviantART and the website is Their logo is "Where ART Meets Application" I do not use this site much, although my students try to encourage me to share my photos on it. For classroom work, it is a great resource because students can see and critique each others' work. In English class, it provides an opportunity to engage in speaking and general communication activities. Many of the students already are very good at post-processing their images, and creating real art from a simple photograph. I envy them for their abilities.

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.
