Developing Creative Learners in K-12 Classrooms

Posted on Oct 29, 2014 by Pip Cleaves Last Activity on Oct 29, 2014

Creativity is no longer an elective, it's the future.  In a recent survey, 85% of people agreed that creative thinking is critical for problem solving in their career.* And with the challenges the world is facing today in our global economy, in our environment, and in social issues, the need for creative ideas has never been greater.

Tessellations with Photoshop

Posted on Oct 27, 2014 by Tod Johnston Last Activity on Oct 27, 2014

To help students better understand transformations, have them create digital tessellations.   The tessellation starts with a square block in any color. By removing a section from one side of the square and placing on the opposite side, you'll create a shape that will tesselate across the screen. Repeat this process for the top and bottom your square and now your tessellation will fill the screen. Choose between two or more colors to differentiate between the shapes. This tessellation uses a gradient from the two shape colors as a background layer.  This idea for tessellations with Photoshop comes from Math Art by Collette Stemple.
