Create a Website with Muse and Dropbox

Posted on Jul 13, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Jul 17, 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!

Responsive Edge Animate Hero Banner

Posted on Jul 11, 2014 by Sheri German Last Activity on Jul 11, 2014

This is a project that guides students through creating a hero banner in Edge Animate. The banner project includes sound, an interactive button, animated text and three banner images that fade in and out at the pace of five seconds each.  The students are guided through a group exercise that will give them the confidence to complete an extension exercise on their own. The guided banner uses as its theme the Stone Harbor Bird Sanctuary in southern New Jersey. The banner cycles through images of birds with a bird sound background. The final image displays the name of the bird sanctuary and offers a navigation button to take the user to the tours page of the site. The students are asked to select a theme, create quality banner graphics and put together their own interactive banner for a mission of their choosing. The project can be used for any subject and should interest the students in finding out more about their themes. The project includes the exercise files for the guided exercise, an e... Read More

Animating Meiosis

Posted on Jul 8, 2014 by Eliot Attridge Last Activity on Jul 21, 2014

This is intended as a lesson in a biology class. The idea is to introduce animation first by getting the students in an earlier lesson in the unit to animate mitosis (which is simpler) using stop motion animation first. This is because they do not need any major software to do this and I have found in the past that stop motion is a good way in to capturing attention. The meiosis lessons focus on using software to create the animation, so progresses the students in their IT skills as well as their content knowledge. The level of detail that you go into for meiosis depends upon the level of the class. For example, a year 10 student may just show the division of a cell into four daughter cells in steps whereas a year 13 student would need to show each stage (anaphase, telophase etc).

This Project was curated for the purpose of students to get a chance to think creatively and to find a design solution from researching and imagining . Students get a chance to review the past and also to think about the future with no boundaries. Project Description : Find a product that has been around for at least 50 years. and look at how it was advertised 50years ago till today. Researched how this product was advertised in the previous decades, in order to find out the pattern that exist throughout the years. Explain why do they have that pattern.  With proper understanding, design an ad of the same product for the future. For example, Vacuum Cleaners throughout the years uses woman/housewives as the main model to advertised, why?. Imagine in 20 years from how, how should vacuum cleaners be advertised?

Letter Bingo

Posted on Jul 2, 2014 by Joel Aarons Last Activity on Jul 22, 2014

A simple game I made up for my 2 year old, that I thought I would share. Attached is a Photoshop PSD file.The PSD has layer comps which amount to six boards, consisting of letters and numbers. Print the boards out twice.One set, paste on cardboard or thick card and laminate. Those are your game boards.One set, cut out each square with letters and numbers on them, paste them on cardboard or thick card, laminate and then cut them out again. Those are your game cards. Easy as pie. Each player chooses one game board. Shuffle the cards. One at a time, with your toddler, choose a card from a stack of face down cards. Get your toddler to check if either of you have the chosen letter/number on your boards. Place if you do, discard if you don't. Get your toddler to say what the letter and number is before putting it down. That's it!  Note: This file uses the font Essay Text Regular found in TypeKit. If you don't have that font, feel free to substitute.
