Adobe Voice Planning Sheet

Posted on Aug 15, 2014 by Joel Aarons Last Activity on Aug 15, 2014

I find it useful in my class - since we have limited iPads - to have the students pre-plan their Stories. To this end, I created a planning sheet, that can be printed as many times as needed. The sheet contains space to plan two slides. Each plan for a slide includes space for: Notes (on what pictures/icons/captions are needed)Layout choiceScript for narrationRough sketch of the slide I find once the students have all this worked out, then the time needed to spend on the iPad is minimal and I can share it around to other students. I hope others find this useful.

Design a Logo - Add to Business Letter and Create a Website

Posted on Aug 7, 2014 by Dawnette Brenner Last Activity on Aug 7, 2014

Students will use their professional business letters they created in language arts class in this lesson. Instructions for creating a logo are contained within this lesson, tutorials are provided and step-by-step instructional plans are listed to make it easy for any teacher to follow these plans. Once your students are done creating logos, they can add them to their professional business letters, and pretend they are the Marketing Director of their new company. Have them introduce their product or service in the letter and they can even design goods the company will market. Once finished, students can create a website, tutorials for doing so are listed in the links within this lesson plan. I like to refer to this as a "Business Unit on Language Arts literacy and Digital Logo Design"

Digital Story Telling Project

Posted on Aug 7, 2014 by Dawnette Brenner Last Activity on Aug 7, 2014

Students will use Digital Images or Photos they take to come up with a story idea. From there they will get into groups and using brainstorming, creative thought and visualizing they will create the beginning to their own stories. Students will each use a computer or laptop and after a period of time rotate. Students will rotate and add to their neighbors story in their group. After 3 to 4 rotations, the students will place an ending onto their story and begin to find or illustrate images to add to their story, bringing it to life. Students will use Adobe products to illustrate, sketch images and to finalize their stories. Students will end by producing a Digital Story using Adobe Voice.

Geometric Polyhedra Lesson

Posted on Aug 7, 2014 by Dawnette Brenner Last Activity on Aug 7, 2014

A common core aligned geometry lesson curated and altered to support 21st century learning skills. Students will learn first about calculating the surface area of a polyhedra (they should have been exposed to this concept prior to this lesson but not completely necessary) and then draw and create a "net." Students will identify using key vocabulary, the necessary parts of the polyhedra and manipulate several virtual nets and shapes. Students will work in teams to create several paper versions of geometric shapes and finally after watching tutorials, make one in the Adobe product of their choice. Students will finalize their lesson and display their understanding of polyhedra in a final written essay, which should include a picture of their finished polyhedra.

Creating a New Classic Work of Art Project

Posted on Aug 4, 2014 by Christia Bowden Last Activity on Aug 4, 2014

Have the students choose a classic painting they would like to manipulate and have them add, remove, and distort items to make it represent a book they just read, an historical place, or anything that is relevant to the class. Maybe it should represent them or convey a message of some sort. You can make it fit almost any content being learned. After they have created their image, have them share it with the class and explain it’s meaning. Having and creating the graphic representation will also help them retain what they learned better than they would without it.

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.

Letter Bingo

Posted on Jul 2, 2014 by Joel Aarons Last Activity on Jul 22, 2014

A simple game I made up for my 2 year old, that I thought I would share. Attached is a Photoshop PSD file.The PSD has layer comps which amount to six boards, consisting of letters and numbers. Print the boards out twice.One set, paste on cardboard or thick card and laminate. Those are your game boards.One set, cut out each square with letters and numbers on them, paste them on cardboard or thick card, laminate and then cut them out again. Those are your game cards. Easy as pie. Each player chooses one game board. Shuffle the cards. One at a time, with your toddler, choose a card from a stack of face down cards. Get your toddler to check if either of you have the chosen letter/number on your boards. Place if you do, discard if you don't. Get your toddler to say what the letter and number is before putting it down. That's it!  Note: This file uses the font Essay Text Regular found in TypeKit. If you don't have that font, feel free to substitute.

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
