FormsCentral Tutorial: Turn-in Box

Posted on Oct 24, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Oct 24, 2014

This is a short tutorial on building a Turn-in Box in FormsCentral. FormsCentral is a terrific online program for going paperless! I use it to create quizzes, visual writing prompts, and in this instance, Turn-in Boxes which I place on my website. By using the turn-in box, I have a time-stamped record of when students turn-in their assignment. It is easy to download student files and the whole process is totally paperless. Save paper. Save the planet. Use FormsCentral!

Personal Logo in Illustrator

Posted on Oct 24, 2014 by ANNA WOERMAN Last Activity on Oct 24, 2014

I have given this project for 7 years, and add to it each year. It can be broken up into a longer period, but you can give a good intro/overview in one to two class period before they can start sketching ideas. After learning the Gestault Principles and watching a video that helps visually explain quality detailed thumbnail sketches, students created a layered word list about themselves, then sketch many logo ideas, narrowing down to 10 quality thumbnails to choose from. I usually do a gallery walk/class group critique to help them narrow down to the strongest logo choice. They then bring that design to Illustrator where they create it with the pen tool and usually incorporate the pathfinder. When their logo in Illustrator is complete, I ask them to write a statement of purpose that answers these questions: -Defend which ONE of Gestault’s Principles you used in your logo, how? -Self assess your final logo. Using industry technical vocabulary, reflect on your technical skills and proces... Read More

Magazine Cover using InDesign

Posted on Oct 17, 2014 by Christel Wilkie Last Activity on Oct 17, 2014

This is a tutorial I developed for my year 11 class last year.  It gives them the opportunity to apply some of the great layout options available in InDesign to create a Magazine cover.   The theme for this magazine is Xtream Sports as my students were mainly teenage boys from 16-17 years old.  The theme could easily be modified to suit whatever interests your clients have.  Just change the assets or get them to source their own.   I have uploaded the step-by-step tutorial as well as the assets folder and working document, all zipped.

Spring into Action with Photoshop

Posted on Oct 16, 2014 by Christel Wilkie Last Activity on Oct 19, 2014

This was a two hour workshop that I did recently with some visiting year 4 and 5 students.  We had a themed arts day and the students created animated GIFS celebrating spring.  Students were given some basic information about gathering resources from Google Images and then proceeded to learn a bit about Photoshop CS6 using layers and the animation timeline.  They used puppet warp to modify shapes and more advanced students also modified colours and added a few gradients. I have uploaded an example on one student's work and the PowerPoint presentation I used to take the students through the process.  You should be able to see the animation if you open it with any web browser.

The objective of this lesson is the creation of an animated virtual aquarium.

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.

911 Memorial Collage

Posted on Oct 16, 2014 by Tanisha Bronaugh Last Activity on Oct 24, 2014

Beginning Graphics students use Photoshop to create a 911 Memorial collage. This collage should look somewhat seamless. NO hard or unrefined edges. Edges must be blended together! When you are finished it should look like 1 image!!Collage must be: 11x17300 resolution This project is a good way to get newbies acquainted with various tools in Photoshop. I sometimes provide the students with a folder of royalty free images; it is interesting to see the variations students come up with, given the same variety of images. This project could also be done using Illustrator! I complete this assignment with a class critique.
