The International College at Dhurakij Pundit University (DPUIC) is proud to announce the opening of a new program: theMaster of Arts in English for Careers.

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

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...

ANIMATION PROJECT -- Group Activity -- Rotoscoping Animation Technique

Posted on May 27, 2014 by Candie Witherspoon Last Activity on Jul 24, 2014

What is Rotoscoping?  Learn how animation is created in the video "Lemonade."  Use this in your class as group assignments.  Have your students address topics related to their own lives, experiences, or current events.  Maybe have them act out historic events or literary dramas, or scenes from literature they are currently reading and studying in class.  This will cover all or most of your Common Core, STEM, PARCC, and other Evaluation requirements.  Students will love it.  Administrators will rave about them and you!  It's a WIN WIN project idea for today's classrooms!

What I Did For My Summer Vacation

Posted on May 20, 2014 by Mark DuBois Last Activity on Jun 19, 2014

Students review their summer vacation and create an Adobe Voice that documents the highlights. Note: Adobe Voice can optionally connect to a variety of online services, like photo storage and video hosting services, that require account creation and are not available to users under the age of 13. If you plan to use these online service features with students under the age of 13, the teacher (and not the student) must create the online service account.
