My Story: Story Telling using Adobe Photoshop, Premiere Elements, Presenter and captivate with Success

Posted on Mar 25, 2015 by Shanlee Liu Last Activity on Mar 27, 2015

A professional development plan for educators, staff and administrators was designed with a month long flipped on-lined training for participants to learn essential skills and functionality necessary on their own pace in order to advance to the 3 hours face to face workshop session. At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to create a lesson plan template and post a link to their digital media product. This is a work in progress. Your suggestion will make it better. Thank you so much in advance.

Social Media Templates for Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign

Posted on Mar 18, 2015 by Tanya Hopper Last Activity on Mar 19, 2015

These are template files for the most common social media platforms for profiles, covers, banners, posts, and backgrounds. Posts are named AdBlanks because I primarily use them for creating ads for the content I create.  These really make life easier when you have 20+ walls, circles, and tweeters to manage :) I also have these for Quark. If you would like them please ask, and I will send them to you.

Publish Flash content on multiple platforms

Posted on Mar 7, 2015 by Joseph Labrecque Last Activity on Mar 28, 2015

Flash Professional CC lets you create animations for virtually any use case, device, browser, or platform. Natively author and publish your content to various formats using the tools and interface you already know. I have recorded – and Adobe has published – a set of video tutorials to spread awareness of Flash Professional CC as a platform agnostic creative animation and asset generation tool. Not only is this messaging important for creatives looking for a solid solution for targeting HTML5 Canvas, WebGL, and an array of custom platforms like Away3D and GAF… but is also beneficial to getting people to understand what a great platform exists within the Adobe runtimes; Flash Player and AIR! No matter what the target – Flash Professional is a wonderfully expressive tool and Adobe is committed to enhancing the application to make it more useful for an ever-expanding set of creative designers, developers, animators, and more.

Change the World in Two Weeks

Posted on Mar 2, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Mar 2, 2015

I pitched a blue sky project to my students today (March 2). On Friday, March 13, they'll deliver their plan/artifact/evidence of what/how/why they did/will continue to do to "make the world a better place." On Monday, March 16, they'll each present their results to their peers. They may work alone or collaboratively but each must document the journey on his/her blog. The project intro is in the video (below). I also linked to this scene from Pay It Forward in the quest.  Personal shocker: Less that 10% of the students have seen Pay It Forward. The kids responded enthusiastically to the challenge and the classroom was abuzz with possibilities. It's going to be an interesting two weeks.

Shape of Design

Posted on Feb 28, 2015 by Aalia Rahman Last Activity on Mar 1, 2015

The Shape of Design by Frank Chimero is a free odd little design ebook. Instead of talking about typography, grids, or logos, it focuses on storytelling, co-dependency, and craft. It tries to supplement the abundance of technical talk and how-to elsewhere by elevating why great work is done.  Shape is a book about objectives, and it zooms out to answer a couple big questions: How does it feel to make things for other people? And how can we do so in a meaningful, engaged way? -I do not own rights to this book. The description was taken from the book itself. You may read the book online, download the book or order a print.-

Lead By Example

Posted on Feb 27, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Feb 27, 2015

When we returned from winter break on January 5th I challenged my students to step out of their comfort zone and step up the creative effort. I felt the best way to make the challenge stick was to accept it myself so on the 4th I recorded a few videos, uploaded them to a YouTube playlist, and announced on the 5th that I'd add to the playlist every school day from that point forward. Crazy, eh? Teachers, like students, need a challenge. This is day 33 of a new series of Mac Lab videos (not counting finals and the first day of semester 2) and I'm currently on a 33 day hitting streak with 92 videos in the playlist. These tutorials aren't intended to be refined or polished (and they're not). They're intended to be a daily extemporaneous exercise—though subject to rerecording when I become especially maladroit (which happens all too often). The idea harkens back to the spirit of Confessions of a Video Tutorial Junkie. But because not enough kids were embracing the challenge,... Read More

AMP Revisited

Posted on Feb 25, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Feb 25, 2015

This video connects directly with ZIM! Revisited. Both were recorded to remind this years' students of the foundation for our self-paced, student-centered learning environment. Dan Pink's Drive does a wonderful job of synthesizing a broad range of research leading to his Autonomy, Mastery, & Purpose triumvirate. We've used AMP, along with ZIM! with great success since the 2010/11 school year and I encourage other educators to consider implementing some degree of AMP and ZIM! in their own classrooms.

InDesign 4-Page Website Layout Mockup

Posted on Feb 25, 2015 by M McLane Last Activity on Mar 1, 2015

Students will create a four-page website for a client. The pages are to be focused on the client's main menu requirements such as About Us, Contact Us, Products, and Services.  The menu requirements can be different from those listed depending upon the site's needs.  Students will be creating hand-drawn sketches of four related web pages and will create an InDesign master template for all four pages including a header, menu bar(s), footer, etc.  These are items that will appear exactly the same on all four pages. After completion of a master page for all four webpages, students will layout and add appropriate images as well as text areas to include title headers and placeholder text.  Appropriate typography related to the website topic and consistency in font typeface, size, style, color, etc. will be emphasized throughout the pages. Guidelines: Composition size: All pages will need to be 1024px (width) x 768px (height)Color mode: RGBResolution: 72 d... Read More

ZIM! Revisited

Posted on Feb 23, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Feb 23, 2015

The Zone of Intrinsic Motivation explained in six minutes. I recorded the video as a ZIM! refresher for my students. It's not a polished video by any means but I thought others might find it of value so I'm sharing it here as well. ZIM! in six minutes (6:06 actually) The ZIM! Venn diagram was inspired by Budd Caddell's How to be Happy in Business Venn on and was repurposed with his permission.* Thanks, Bud!  *The page is currently a 404. Here's a copy of Bud's original Venn.

Practicing 3D shapes

Posted on Feb 23, 2015 by Fred Benitez Last Activity on Feb 23, 2015

This online applet is great for introducing students to 3D drawing based on 2D instructions. The student are given the top, front and side view of an object and are asked to create the 3 dimensional shape. The trick is that the applet also gives the minimum number of cubes needed to create the shape. The figure name will be yellow when you have the correct shape, and it will turn green when you have the shape with the correct number of cubes.  I used this applet  before getting into perspective drawing and when introducing engineering and architectural design.

Adobe Fixel

Posted on Feb 19, 2015 by Mark DuBois Last Activity on Feb 19, 2015

Although this is a product from Adobe Labs, I thought others might be interested in this app. I think it shows what one can do using an iPad for manipulation of photos. I provide a brief overview in the web link. I had to choose a product (and Fixel is not on the list - hence Adobe AIR).

Free Sound Effects and Music

Posted on Feb 19, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Feb 20, 2015

I have mentioned this in a comment on another post but figured I'd put it up here in case anyone doesn't know how to unlock this amazing part of the Adobe suite.  Adobe Audition (and Adobe programs in general) is packaged with heaps (thousands) of royalty free sounds. You simply need to download them and unzip them and you can import them into Audition, Premiere, Flash, etc. There are heaps and heaps of really well recorded and specific sound effects that you will never be lost for sound. My personal favourite is "Human Chew Banana". This is the link.   If that link doesn't work here is the URL that you can copy into your browser:

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.

Adobe PaintCan app

Posted on Feb 15, 2015 by Mark DuBois Last Activity on Feb 15, 2015

Adobe recently released an app for iPads called PaintCan. I put together a brief overview of the app. For those using iPads in their classro9oms, I think you (and your students) might find this a fun way to turn a photo into a painting. Had to select a product and PaintCan is too new to be in the list. Sigh.
