Pre-Design Web Questions

Posted on Oct 24, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Oct 24, 2014

This is a worksheet that forces students to analyze websites for how color, images, and elements are used to create effective website. Students are always in such a hurry to start building their website and do not realize that a lot of planning and thought must preceed the software phase.

This is a colorful, quick-sheet interactive .PDF with a link to a Smashing Magazine website that thoroughly explains each concept. I use this in my classroom by linking to the file where students can read and then follow the link to the site.

Great Color Creation Website

Posted on Sep 23, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Sep 23, 2014

If you haven't seen this or played with it yet, it is a beautiful website with minimal interface. A great website for teaching about color schemes, etc. I wish that we could download schemes as Adobe Swatch Exchange files.

25+ Experimental Typography Showcases

Posted on Sep 23, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Sep 23, 2014

This is eye-candy and inspiration for anyone who uses type - and who doesn't every day?  By viewing the many images of imaginative (and sometimes illegible) type layouts and uses, students will gain a better understanding of what's possible. I use this as a 10-minute visual warmup before we dive into typography particulars.

Type Matching Game

Posted on Sep 23, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Sep 23, 2014

Students always wonder how to choose two typefaces that will look good together on the page. This little "Dating Game" will help them explore the methodology of pairing type. Excellent game. Short, quick, self-explanatory.

Design a Logo - Add to Business Letter and Create a Website

Posted on Aug 7, 2014 by Dawnette Brenner Last Activity on Oct 21, 2014

Students will use their professional business letters they created in language arts class in this lesson. Instructions for creating a logo are contained within this lesson, tutorials are provided and step-by-step instructional plans are listed to make it easy for any teacher to follow these plans. Once your students are done creating logos, they can add them to their professional business letters, and pretend they are the Marketing Director of their new company. Have them introduce their product or service in the letter and they can even design goods the company will market. Once finished, students can create a website, tutorials for doing so are listed in the links within this lesson plan. I like to refer to this as a "Business Unit on Language Arts literacy and Digital Logo Design"

Create a Website with Muse and Dropbox

Posted on Jul 13, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Aug 7, 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 tv.adobe.com. 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!
