Retouching Your Images

Posted on Aug 27, 2014 by M. Chow Last Activity on Aug 27, 2014

Have you ever seen an amazing photo but could never figure out how it was taken? A good photographer can accomplish this. And if not, Photoshop has tools for correcting many kinds of imperfections, from smoothing pores and wrinkles to removing unsightly power lines. How about the pages of beauty magazines? Wow, those models have no imperfections! Or what about the cherish photos in our wallets of our loved ones—all leave the tale tell signs of cracks, rips, tears, and misshapen corners. Majority of the photos that you see, can be fixed with Photoshop. Although, this topic is taught in the advanced level of Photoshop, we will touch briefly what retouching can do.

Color Theme Lab

Posted on Jul 28, 2014 by Jody Campbell Last Activity on Aug 27, 2014

The lab consists of a provided PDF handout to which a PSD template is attached. The students are instructed to identify three field of study examples that they find inspirational to their work. The students are shown how to find large “free to use and modify” examples via Google’s search engine. The student places the example in the space provided in the PSD template. The next step for the student is to up the image to kuler.adobe.com and to use its color generator to create a color theme. Kuler is an awesome resource that I use outside of teaching in my professional role as an illustrator and graphic designer but when uploading an image its auto feature often jumps to irrelevant areas of the picture which works out from an instructional point view because it forces the student to think about what color is important and what is not then manually adjust the theme. After creating the color theme the student downloads the .ase and loads it into PS’s swatches. Then using the... Read More

Introduction to App Development Week 1

Posted on Jun 29, 2014 by Trevor Milevskiy Last Activity on Jun 29, 2014

This is a series of lesson to introduce the Year 10 students to the development of Apps. All the students have previously completed Code Academy and have developed web pages so they should be familiar with HTML code. As part of their Code work each student has created a Code Booklet into which they write definitions of code that they need to remember. This Code Booklet will be added to during the App development process and it forms part of the evaluation for the Unit. All materials are in the word document. I am looking forward to doing this with the Year 10 students this year and hopefully they will develop some great Apps which will be published.

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 Aug 28, 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...

Flash Professional CC 2014 - Edge Animate Sprite Sheets

Posted on Jun 20, 2014 by Joseph Labrecque Last Activity on Jul 13, 2014

Flash Professional is a highly flexible asset generation beast. You can use all sorts of internal tools to draw out and animate rich, complex vector assets. Edge Animate does not include a lot of internal tools for asset generation - it relies of other Creative Cloud applications for this task. Flash Professional and Edge Animate make a great pairing due to these facts - as the new release allows us to generate and inject Edge Animate specific sprite sheets.

Generation Professional - App Design - What if we DIDNT use jQueryMobile?

Posted on Jun 15, 2014 by Steve Lancaster Last Activity on Jun 15, 2014

A short video that attempts to dispel the believe that a boiler framework is "Required" for app design - But SURE DOES make it easier! In this video, I go the long way to show a SIMILAR means of creating an app interface without using javascript AT ALL. Why? To help people concerned about their jQuery understanding to realise it WONT stop them from creating a web app. Once you've see this resource, it might help you see you can take your time and learn jQueryMobile at your own pace, one you know you can.

Dojo Joe Heads Sprite Sheet for Animation

Posted on May 25, 2014 by Kevin McMahon Last Activity on Aug 4, 2014

10 different Dojo Joe heads (with a range of emotions, side looks, and blinks) for teaching spritesheet-stlye animation. Note: the heads are exactly 100 pixels apart, so in Edge Animate just: 1) Clip to the area of one head. 2) Animate the "background image" property (make sure to keyframe without the transition/tween option turned on). 3) Associate a trigger button - and create the full range of emotive responses - angry, bored, happy, you name it.   Check out examples at:  http://designdojoquiz.businesscatalyst.com/index.html
