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.

Erik Natzke: The Creative Application of Education

Posted on Mar 5, 2015 by Adobe Education Last Activity on Mar 15, 2015

Watch this recorded presentation by artist Erik Natzke from the Adobe Education Leader 2014 Summer Institute.  Einstein famously said, “Knowledge is limited; but imagination encircles the world.” The knowledge we acquire does empower us. But it isn’t until we find new and imaginative ways to apply this knowledge, that we begin to evolve ourselves. The mechanisms for acquiring knowledge and applying creativity are generally in conflict with one another. One is the systematic absorption of information and the other is a mode of play that often disrupts our progress to shake out discovery and gain a greater understanding of the known body of knowledge. The real trick comes when you can complete the loop and have play inspire learning and vice versa.

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

Creating Advertising for Local Businesses - Authentic Learning for HS students

Posted on Feb 17, 2015 by andrew drozd Last Activity on Mar 2, 2015

During the spring of 2014, students in my graphic design class created print media advertising for local businesses in Brooklyn and Queens. This real world learning opportunity proved to be highly successful as students applied their creativity, design talents, and developed entrepreneurship. We created a mini-documentary that captured this experience with the hope that it might provide some inspiration for your own classroom: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qCqnN6EY2M The video details much of the process from behind the scenes but here's an overview: we approached businesses with our offer of free advertising, took photos on the spot, and returned within a few days with spectacular posters. Shoot me a message if you have any questions or suggestions for how I (or others in our community) might enhance this project. Thanks!! Click here to see 45 different student created examples of advertising.
