Adobe Acrobat for Portfolios

Posted on Sep 19, 2014 by Clint Balsar Last Activity on Sep 19, 2014

This professional development session plan is aimed at helping my participants create a PDF portfolio by using Adobe Acrobat Pro. I have used Adobe's FormsCentral to create both a Pre-event questionnaire form and an Event feed-back form. A handout has been included to allow participants to have key points, as well as a space for a few notes. By the conclusion of this workshop, all participants will be able to begin the process of creating a PDF portfolio from varied resources and understand the benefits of building them for both their course instruction and their own personal/professional artifacting. This will be an introduction that is intended to encourage further usage and exploration for the motivated, intrinsic adult learner. All participants will be encouraged to develop a unique backdrop and custom header to begin exploring the benefit of creativity to their portfolio.

What is Math? (seriously)

Posted on Sep 17, 2014 by Calculus Academy Last Activity on Sep 17, 2014

Every person has taken math in school some time in their life. BUT, why don’t we have a clear definition of Mathematics? What on earth are we studying? What kind of education puts you through 12 years of math and doesn't even explain to you what it is? Its funny/sad how we can't even define it in even a slightly coherent way. Which tells us a lot about how intelligent we and our teachers are. Doing a google search on "what math is" doesn't really help either. So I attempted to answer the question "what is math", and also since it is very close to science, I tried to explain "what is science", and compared them.

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 New Classic Work of Art Project

Posted on Aug 4, 2014 by Christia Bowden Last Activity on Aug 4, 2014

Have the students choose a classic painting they would like to manipulate and have them add, remove, and distort items to make it represent a book they just read, an historical place, or anything that is relevant to the class. Maybe it should represent them or convey a message of some sort. You can make it fit almost any content being learned. After they have created their image, have them share it with the class and explain it’s meaning. Having and creating the graphic representation will also help them retain what they learned better than they would without it.

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.

Animating Meiosis

Posted on Jul 8, 2014 by Eliot Attridge Last Activity on Aug 10, 2014

This is intended as a lesson in a biology class. The idea is to introduce animation first by getting the students in an earlier lesson in the unit to animate mitosis (which is simpler) using stop motion animation first. This is because they do not need any major software to do this and I have found in the past that stop motion is a good way in to capturing attention. The meiosis lessons focus on using software to create the animation, so progresses the students in their IT skills as well as their content knowledge. The level of detail that you go into for meiosis depends upon the level of the class. For example, a year 10 student may just show the division of a cell into four daughter cells in steps whereas a year 13 student would need to show each stage (anaphase, telophase etc).

Voice presentation on What Is Meant by Scientific Theory?

Posted on Jul 7, 2014 by Eliot Attridge Last Activity on Jul 13, 2014

This is an Adobe voice presentation that I created to a) test voice out and b) explain the difference between a theory and a scientific theory. Thoughts on the creation: it was very easy to do. I think it is important to script the presentation- simple sentences separated by gaps (where the slide will change). This helps to focus on what will go on the slide and how to get the message across. Plus it means that delivery is more confident. Certainly this would be a good project for students (define what different key words are or are not?) Overall- very powerful software. I'm an iPad user, but most of my students are not, so I hope that it is ported over to other formats asap.
