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!

Creating a Voice Explainer

Posted on Jul 10, 2014 by Eliot Attridge Last Activity on Jul 13, 2014

I have been creating Adobe Voice explainers. These are short <1 1/2 min videos made using Adobe Voice on iPad. I have now arrived at a way to make the Voice that is consistent  by writing a script before recording the vocals. This also includes my pre-recording ideas about what should be displayed on screen at the same time. The advantage with Voice is that is can be done completely on the fly. Scripting does take some of the immediacy out of the app BUT it does enable a more efficient work flow.

Introducing InDesign

Posted on Jun 27, 2014 by Mark Finlayson Last Activity on Jul 21, 2014

I have recently began to get students to make greater use of InDesign, and have collected some resources and activities to help with this. They will be using InDesign for both a Prac and Theory task in a unit of work, and have never used it before, so the challenge is how to get them started. There are some great videos on YouTube, and the links are in the Tutorial document. Combining these, with a basic run down and demonstration on how to set up a document and how to get started have proven very effective. The video on handling images is particularly useful as there are many ways to do this. The main issue is what to get them to lay out, and I came up with the idea of using a website about a photographer (or artist, musician, writer, historical figure etc) as the source. Remember this is really about learning how to manipulate text and images on a page so the content is not as important, the process is. In the example I have done I haven't edited the text other than remove footnote references etc, but a v... Read More

Customizable Game Mechanics via Free WordPress Plugin

Posted on Jun 22, 2014 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Jul 15, 2014

For the past four years, my students and I, aided by a growing number of adventurous educators from around the world, have created a tool—a WordPress plugin called Game On—that all of us use to gamify our curriculum. A collection of resources here on the Exchange have chronicled that journey. Over 3,000 comments (and countless emails) from nearly 150,000 pageviews have helped to shape and refine our plugin's features. I never wanted to become a developer. I'm a new media arts teacher who just wanted to use game mechanics to provide additional motivation and engagement for "flatliners"—those students who never really seemed to give it their all. Today, there are any number of tools teachers can use to gamify their classrooms. But four years ago? The cupboard was bare. So we invented our own system. Our plugin is free. WordPress is free. Hosting is not—unless your district provides it (as mine does). Expect to spend $20 (good) to $30 (great) per month for your own gamifie... Read More

The Creative Process Flowchart

Posted on Jun 21, 2014 by Candie Witherspoon Last Activity on Jul 23, 2014

I created this in Microsoft Word and saved it as a .pdf using Adobe Acrobat Pro.  I then uploaded it to my Creative Cloud so that I can access it from any device. The purpose of this assess is to remind students of the steps or stages are are required in the completion of every project we do in my art classes.  I add it to the beginning of every new project introduction.  I post it on the bulletin board in my classroom so that I can direct a student's attention to it if I see that they are off task, or trying to skip any of the essential steps which they are always graded on.  All brainstorming and rough draft sketches are put into their sketchbooks, including any clips from printed materials such as magazines, internet, etc. that will be used as visual resources.  I also have them review the flowchart prior to turning in any assignment and ask them to go back through their work and make sure they have not left anything undone, or to check to see if there is any areas in the final...

Creativity Matters

Posted on Jun 18, 2014 by Jim Babbage Last Activity on Jul 4, 2014

I really like Adobe Voice. And based on two conferences I presented at recently, so do teachers! In mid June 2014, I presented at the very first California Community Colleges Digital Media Educators Conference. In two of my three sessions I talked about Adobe Voice and showed some sample projects I created. I even created a new project, specifically for this conference and it went over very well. Pulling from statistics from our recent Creativity Gap report, Voice images and my own work on my iPad, I talked about the importance of creativity in education and how critical it is to the future. The presentation was less than 2 minutes and took about an hour to put together. You can view the final project here: Creativity Matters

Animated Me!

Posted on Jun 9, 2014 by Marcel Peeters Last Activity on Jul 2, 2014

ANIMATE ME LESSON PLAN Subject(s): Digital media, arts, animation Grade(s): 5 - 9 Objectives: To design, compose and produce an animation of yourself using Photoshop and the gif file. This will lead to a better understanding of layers, animation and intermediate image manipulation tools. Materials Needed: An image of yourself, portrait or full length and a computer with Adobe Photoshop CS5+ (Puppet tool). Brief Description: As part of the digital portfolio all students work on throughout the year at our school, I thought a "digital me" done as an animated gif using the puppet warp tool in Photoshop would be achievable and interesting. They could build on the basic movements shown in the video examples to include text in a speech bubble to introduce themselves. Advanced techniques could be used to make a web-like walk on person for some intro pages of their portfolio. Lesson: Introduce the graphic interchange format and research some examples, saving these as referen... Read More
