Educate your students while you get them involved in decorating the school and its website for Red Ribbon Week or another community campaign. Assign all students to create a project illustrating your school's Red Ribbon Week theme (in the US 2014 Red Ribbon Theme: “Love Yourself. Be Drug Free.”  See website: http://redribbon.org/) or other community campaign.  Students should research the topic and come up with a poster, web page, public service announcement or other use of their media to communicate this theme to their fellow students and community.

Creating Type Magic in Photoshop

Posted on Sep 23, 2014 by Dawn Bradley Last Activity on Sep 23, 2014

This lesson explores intermediate type modifications. Once I teach this lesson, I make students shape or adjust their type in some way. I usually demonstrate the steps given. After the lesson is over, I have students create a second document using another word(s) like the name of our school or our mascot. They must do the same steps without my help. They may ask their neighbors for help during this time. I have them to give their neighbor feedback on his/her type changes. Then they have to make a suggestion on how to do it differently. We may repeat this type of lesson several times until I feel comfortable with their skills.  They will do an application test to demonstrate their skills without notes or help from neighbors.

Teaching your students how to "Brand" their assignments.

Posted on Sep 22, 2014 by Dawn Bradley Last Activity on Sep 26, 2014

Everyone likes being creative and having ownership of their work. This lesson teachers students and educators how to use Photoshop to create a brand or logo for each student. Once the brand is created, students will no longer type their names on the documents. Instead they will use their brand on all of their work to identify it as being created by them. This tutorial is down with Photoshop CS6, but it could easily be used in Elements or another software.

Posted on Sep 18, 2014 by Melissa Jones Last Activity on Oct 2, 2014

How do we prepare students to participate in a more creative society? View this recorded session, featuring Mitch Resnick of the MIT Media Lab for a discussion of new technologies and activities designed to help children think more creatively. About the session We live in a world that is changing more rapidly than ever before. Much of what we learn today will be obsolete tomorrow. Success and happiness depend on the ability to think and act creatively. In short, we are living in the Creative Society. But there is a problem. Most activities in children's lives, whether it's lessons in the classroom or games in the living room, are not designed to help children develop as creative thinkers. In this presentation, we will discuss new technologies and activities designed specifically to help children learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively, so that they are prepared for life in the Creative Society. we will focus particularly on Scratch, a new programming language and on...

Engaging Students with Adobe Voice

Posted on Sep 16, 2014 by Eliot Attridge Last Activity on Sep 18, 2014

This is a lesson based around getting staff to learn how to use Adobe Voice. It also gets them to think about how it could help students with literacy issues become more engaged as well as giving a voice to special target groups. In NZ the target groups are Maori and Pasifika, but these could easily be altered to match the situation elsewhere in the world. The Voice_Help_Sheet is a sheet so that staff can reference it if they cannot get immediate help from me. I have designed it so that the sheet can be skimmed and, hopefully, the learner may pick up other ideas as they go through. The other sheet (Voice_Task_Sheet) is a sheet giving task and discussion instructions. Of the two exemplar Voice presentations, I created the first and the second is one that explains a scientific concept (so illustrating a different use). I have not included the exit slip as part of this download- this very much depends upon you personally and whether you think it was better to have an electronic form submitted.
