Introduction to Adobe Captivate

Posted on Feb 22, 2015 by Mark DuBois Last Activity on Feb 22, 2015

I created this video presentation on the fundamentals of Adobe Captivate for the Train the Trainer course. This was developed to introduce Adobe Captivate to teachers at any grade level who might want to learn more about this tool (and how it can be employed in their classes).  I thought others might benefit from this as well. I realize it is a bit long (but there are lots of things you can do with Adobe Captivate).

Creative Digital Photography

Posted on Feb 17, 2015 by Ross Wallis Last Activity on Feb 18, 2015

This is a slide show presentation of work by my students and myself, mostly using smartphones and tablet computers. There is an extraordinary revolution happening in photography, perhaps the biggest upheaval since it's invention two centuries ago. If I had asked my class 10 years ago how many had a camera, I might have had a few raised hands. Now everyone will have a camera, and they will have it with them all the time. Combining a pretty decent camera with a very powerful computer and some amazingly creative apps, this has simply got to be revolutionary. Click here for the presentation.

How can creativity and innovation enhance your Common Core strategy? Join Ron Beghetto of the University of Connecticut for a discussion of strategies you can use tomorrow in your school.

My Flipped Classroom Experiment

Posted on Jan 3, 2015 by Mark Janke Last Activity on Feb 5, 2015

As part of the 2014 Adobe Generation Professional: Video course, I was asked to share a resource I made using Premiere about my flipped classroom.  This little video doesn't focus on Adobe products but utilizes them as I do a lesson for my students.   As an added bonus, it is a flipped report on flipped learning from early in 2014.  I've now done this for 2 years and the results haven't wavered.  Only one student has failed and that's because the student left all tests blank, turned in no homework, and was often truant.Class statistics: a. Students ages 15-19 b. Videos were each about 3-5 min (one concept each).  A whole lesson is about 10-15 min of instruction.  I made no changes to what I would traditionally share live in class. c.  Were there any students who did not bother to watch? A few at first. However, in our Moodle classes, I made quizzes to complete after watching (short 2-3 min) and I occasionally do examples from their homework. This is the same issue I wo... Read More

Photoshop CC - Type on a Path

Posted on Dec 22, 2014 by Mel Wolverson Last Activity on Dec 22, 2014

This is a 2 minute tutorial on adding text to a path, or a shape, in Photoshop. I'm using Photoshop CC, but this tutorial would work in several versions. In Illustrator there's a Type on a Path tool. Photoshop has that as well, and it's easier to use, it's just less obvious than a tool.  http://youtu.be/-KP4TwNyjyM

Animation in the Classroom? Yes you can, it is easy.

Posted on Dec 15, 2014 by Trevor Milevskiy Last Activity on Jan 9, 2015

Animation is a powerful tool to use in the classroom, however many think that creating a simple animation can be very difficult. This PD should help those who are willing to try something new by creating two types of animations using the motion feature in Photoshop. I have had the opportunity to present this PD to a group of 24 adults recently. While the plan worked, one of the biggest challenges was the amount of time allowed for the session. By the time all the participants were ready to begin I lost 5 minutes which meant that an already tight session became more so, in terms of the time allocations. To overcome this the PD plan has been changed from one session to two sessions. Another challenge was that some of the participants did not bring their computer to the session which meant they had to work with another person. While this was not ideal it did allow for those with limited skills to work with participants with better skills. All the feedback provided by the participant... Read More
