Using Adobe Slate to Disseminate Scientific Information for Everyone

Posted on Nov 15, 2015 by Ricardo Gomez Last Activity on Nov 15, 2015

This Slate Story describes how fetal chromosomal anomalies can be diagnosed by a simple maternal blood sample, even during the first trimester of pregnancy. It is increasingly being used in Europe. We collaborate with several institutions to do the research for the first time in Chile, following our philosophy of making medicine available for every pregnant women in our region (LatinoAmérica). We will continue using Slate to communicate medical information to professionals who care for pregnant women using our core site and its many branches (all our resources are freely available) to impact in the maternal and perinatal outcome of our most "in-need" women.

PowerSchool-SchoolMessenger Integration

Posted on Nov 10, 2015 by Beverly Baker Last Activity on Nov 10, 2015

Down to the wire on this one.  I had a lot of fun using After Effects for the title page the animation screen.  In fact, I hope to find time to go back and use stills with animations for the rest of project rather that camera video.  While I drew I drew on Marks skill set to do the title page, Deila skills helped me through the second sequence's animations.  I also played around with orientation animations and even clip art. A word of thanks to all the facilitators for the course, I enjoyed it ever so much!  Can't wait for games tomorrow! PowerSchool-SchoolMessenger Integration

Design a Record Label

Posted on Nov 9, 2015 by Claire Richards Last Activity on Nov 12, 2015

Record Labels papers are an example of how typography (fonts) can be used to create a dynamic design. Like all design elements fonts can become synonymous with a particular era and their form can sometimes even reflect the attitudes of the times. Project Use shape and text tools to create a record label for a real or fictitious band. Create a coloured circle in Photoshop. Hold the shift key to keep a circle rather than an oval. Leave a space in the middle for a 1cm hole. Including images and drawn elements is optional. You can type on a path by hovering the Type tool over the edge of a shape. Print it out at exactly 4inches (10cm) and cut it out and glue it on a record. Extension Projects: Create a square design for a cardboard sleeve. Create an artwork inspired by a piece of music.

From ladder to dragon- Beginning students

Posted on Nov 4, 2015 by Judith Parsons Last Activity on Nov 5, 2015

The graphic shows the 3 parts to the progression from ladder to dragon. The student can create the boxes and evenly space them, using white to fill the boxes. Then using layers, place a black shape behind the white boxes. Build 2 geometric shape arms, 2 white boxes on one layer and a black box behind upon the layer below. One arm is built. Duplicate the layer, using the edit and transform, reflect or rotate horizontally and vertically.  Now the simple form is created. Merge the visible layers, without the background. Duplicate the layers. (Always save an original layer to go back to.) {Grinning} Then go play with the "warp" tool! It is my favorite. Dragon Ladder Graphic

Mining Identity

Posted on Nov 2, 2015 by Jürgen Liefke Last Activity on Nov 2, 2015

 Being together with the kids in the classroom is the chance to discuss many things, most of all this one : Who am I and where do I come from ? Discussing this question we talked about the area we live in (Essen in Germany, a former centre of the minding and steel industry in Western Europe) and how and why has changed so much in the last four or five decades. The next step was easy to realize. I asked the kids to takr their (real) digital cameras and freeze the area as it is and to think of a story that puts together their ideas and experience about the life here. After some time, when loads of photos had been taken we came together to discuss the photos, The kids then came up with the idea to edit the photos to a situation like (what as if - it would still look the same). So they edited the photos and replaced a blue sky of this summer into a cloudy sky as the people here in the area were used to these days. (Sometimes there was so much dust from coal in the air that clothes, which had just... Read More
