Title Task

Storyboard template

Posted on Jan 18, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Jan 24, 2015

This is a storyboard template I use for the planning of any visual project - videos, animations, photography, flash projects, etc. It is adapted from classic storyboard templates to include the rule of thirds. I have found that this results in students naturally following the 'rule of thirds' when composing their shots even if this hasn't been explicitly covered. Also, I often tell my students, as a good rule of thumb, to storyboard about 20 to 30 shots per minute of film. Overall this generally results in better composition overall and a more engaging end product.  I have included links to Mike Browne's introduction to the Rule of Thirds, Brett Lamb's shot type examples, and a South Australian tourism advert that employs these concepts quite beautifully.  Mike Browne Brett Lamb Barossa. Be Consumed A good introductory exercise would be to attempt to storyboard shots from the advertisement.

This is a hidden gem by Adobe that you can access from the What's New pop-up box when you open Illustrator CC. or you can go to https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/tutorials.html to find it. It seems geared for little kids, but it helps with pen tool skills in a big way.   Anyway, on the https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/tutorials.html page, click on Learn Essentials.

Creating Interactive Rubrics with Acrobat Pro

Posted on Dec 26, 2014 by Candie Witherspoon Last Activity on Jan 6, 2015

This is a Professional Development Training Plan that I created as my final assignment in the Adobe Train the Trainer Course. Included with this Training Plan for Using Acrobat Pro and FormsCentral for Creating Interactive Rubrics is a copy of a Workshop Sign-up form, A KWL like pre-assessment survey form, and an Exit Survey or Feedback form. I love the templates provided through Adobe FormsCentral. They are great! Make your assessment process less painless by learning how to convert old Rubrics into interactive ones by simply scanning and tweaking, or start with a new file and create it directly in Acrobat Pro. I have also attached several AdobeTV videos on using Acrobat to be viewed as extra content information. This is just the tip of the iceberg.

Assessment 2 (After Effects): Such GIFs Very Animating

Posted on Nov 19, 2014 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Jan 11, 2015

This assessment task is a good end to an After Effects unit and is a great test of a range of skills. I use this to assess the skills the students have learned running through my After Effects and Photoshop tutorials - which can be found on my Education Exchange profile. This is the second of 3 assessment tasks that I run at year 9 in Multimedia and Web Programming (but it could very easily be used at another level). This task also serves as a good exploration of students understanding of Copyright, Creative Commons and Usage Rights. Also included is a rubric designed for maximum student benefit. Achievement at each level is explained in clear, student friendly language. This is a new style of rubric I have been working on - I have received positive feedback from students and have found it easy to use. More feedback very welcome
