My Flipped Classroom Experiment

Posted on Jan 3, 2015 by Mark Janke Last Activity on Jan 23, 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

Skateboard Graphic Design

Posted on Oct 31, 2014 by Jessica Gauci Last Activity on Jan 4, 2015

This presentation is an introduction to skateboard graphics. Following this presentation, students can complete a skateboard deck art project where they can use Adobe Illustrator and and Adobe Photoshop to create graphics. Once the digital version of the design has been created, they can either hand draw or project and paint onto a skateboard deck (available to purchase from https://www.eckersleys.com.au/products/skateboard-deck ). If laser technology is available, designs can be laser cut into the wood. Check out my students final skateboard deck here: http://padlet.com/jessicagauci/skateboardart
