Fractions, Decimals and Percents

Posted on Apr 16, 2014 by Brian Dawson Last Activity on Apr 17, 2014

This tutorial iBook is leveled at the primary grades 3-5.  Teaching fractions, decimals and percents are tied together in comparing and associating with each other.  Basic arithmetic skills with fractions and decimals are reviewed using multimedia and interactive animations, including in-book assessments.  A new approach was taken in this iBook as I collaborated with a high school student, Dominic Redding, in (fellow AEL) Mike Skocko's class 3,000 miles away using Edge Animate, to create an exciting game that encourages kids to improve their skills in converting from fractions to decimals to percents.  Kids teaching kids...what a concept.  The actual game widget is attached.

Testing and publishing a Flash project

Posted on Mar 14, 2014 by Adobe Education Last Activity on Apr 10, 2014

Testing your Adobe Flash Professional content before you publish it is very important. This is especially true when publishing a movie for multiple screens. When testing your Flash content, it’s a good idea to perform technical, spelling, grammar, and usability tests. It is also important to make sure the project is accessible. If you’re creating a mobile application, you’ll need to perform additional tests of features that are unique to mobile applications, including accelerometer, touch gestures, and geolocation functionality. Use this activity to teach your students how to apply accessibility standards, conduct technical and usability tests, and how to publish their applications across devices and screen sizes.
