Engaging Students with Adobe Voice

Posted on Sep 16, 2014 by Eliot Attridge Last Activity on Sep 17, 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.

To inspire students to think about 4Rs - Refuse, Reduce,Re-use,Re-cycle, I made this layout by blending the photos we took at land fill with hong kong skyline pics. Tomorrow they will create their reflections through digital story telling

AYV Critical Response Handout

Posted on Sep 10, 2014 by Adobe Youth Voices Last Activity on Sep 10, 2014

AYV believes that the best youth media, and the best learning experience for young people, comes from careful reflection and revision throughout the creative process. Young people need to be encouraged to think deeply about their own work and the works of others, to provide useful feedback and critique, and to continually explore how to improve upon works so that they can have the greatest impact on their intended audience. The Critical Response Technique is one way to help foster this reflective approach. This Critical Response Handout can be used by youth to help guide them through the process when viewing media and giving feedback.
