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.

Creating a Voice Explainer

Posted on Jul 10, 2014 by Eliot Attridge Last Activity on Jul 13, 2014

I have been creating Adobe Voice explainers. These are short <1 1/2 min videos made using Adobe Voice on iPad. I have now arrived at a way to make the Voice that is consistent  by writing a script before recording the vocals. This also includes my pre-recording ideas about what should be displayed on screen at the same time. The advantage with Voice is that is can be done completely on the fly. Scripting does take some of the immediacy out of the app BUT it does enable a more efficient work flow.

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

ANIMATION PROJECT -- Group Activity -- Rotoscoping Animation Technique

Posted on May 27, 2014 by Candie Witherspoon Last Activity on Aug 3, 2014

What is Rotoscoping?  Learn how animation is created in the video "Lemonade."  Use this in your class as group assignments.  Have your students address topics related to their own lives, experiences, or current events.  Maybe have them act out historic events or literary dramas, or scenes from literature they are currently reading and studying in class.  This will cover all or most of your Common Core, STEM, PARCC, and other Evaluation requirements.  Students will love it.  Administrators will rave about them and you!  It's a WIN WIN project idea for today's classrooms!

What I Did For My Summer Vacation

Posted on May 20, 2014 by Mark DuBois Last Activity on Jun 19, 2014

Students review their summer vacation and create an Adobe Voice that documents the highlights. Note: Adobe Voice can optionally connect to a variety of online services, like photo storage and video hosting services, that require account creation and are not available to users under the age of 13. If you plan to use these online service features with students under the age of 13, the teacher (and not the student) must create the online service account.
