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.

100% Proof

Posted on Aug 2, 2014 by Eliot Attridge Last Activity on Aug 2, 2014

This is an Adobe Voice presentation which is explaining why there is no such thing as 100% proof in science. This would be useful showing to students as part of a science course. They could discuss the implications and also recognise when people want 100% proof, could they get it?

Open Knowledge

Posted on Jul 14, 2014 by deston tanner Last Activity on Aug 20, 2014

One of the unique features of this course is that we're building the modules around existingOpen Educational Resources. Instead of creating our own lectures videos, we're curating the best from the open web, and we'd like to invite you to help us by contributing your discoveries to our growing list. We ask that anything you add be tagged with the appropriate module/week number (see below) as well as any relevant descriptive terms.

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.

Introducing InDesign

Posted on Jun 27, 2014 by Mark Finlayson Last Activity on Jul 21, 2014

I have recently began to get students to make greater use of InDesign, and have collected some resources and activities to help with this. They will be using InDesign for both a Prac and Theory task in a unit of work, and have never used it before, so the challenge is how to get them started. There are some great videos on YouTube, and the links are in the Tutorial document. Combining these, with a basic run down and demonstration on how to set up a document and how to get started have proven very effective. The video on handling images is particularly useful as there are many ways to do this. The main issue is what to get them to lay out, and I came up with the idea of using a website about a photographer (or artist, musician, writer, historical figure etc) as the source. Remember this is really about learning how to manipulate text and images on a page so the content is not as important, the process is. In the example I have done I haven't edited the text other than remove footnote references etc, but a v... Read More

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

The Creative Process Flowchart

Posted on Jun 21, 2014 by Candie Witherspoon Last Activity on Jul 31, 2014

I created this in Microsoft Word and saved it as a .pdf using Adobe Acrobat Pro.  I then uploaded it to my Creative Cloud so that I can access it from any device. The purpose of this assess is to remind students of the steps or stages are are required in the completion of every project we do in my art classes.  I add it to the beginning of every new project introduction.  I post it on the bulletin board in my classroom so that I can direct a student's attention to it if I see that they are off task, or trying to skip any of the essential steps which they are always graded on.  All brainstorming and rough draft sketches are put into their sketchbooks, including any clips from printed materials such as magazines, internet, etc. that will be used as visual resources.  I also have them review the flowchart prior to turning in any assignment and ask them to go back through their work and make sure they have not left anything undone, or to check to see if there is any areas in the final...

Moon Phase Puzzle

Posted on Jun 9, 2014 by Eliot Attridge Last Activity on Aug 10, 2014

This is a Moon Phase Puzzle created with Adobe Captivate 8. Once the file is opened and the user presented with the Earth surrounded by the moon in a number of different positions. At the bottom of the screen are 7 moon phases (the New Moon, being invisible, is not shown).  Students drag and drop the correct phase onto the set location. If a mistake is made, the whole puzzle can be reset using the reset button. If the moon phases are submitted and they are all correct, then a congratulations screen is shown. Otherwise the puzzle is reset and the student is asked to try again until they get it right.

Blood Vessel Anatomy

Posted on Jun 5, 2014 by Eliot Attridge Last Activity on Jul 26, 2014

This is a short (around 4 min) video about blood vessels. It goes into more detail than may be required (e.g. arterioles and venules) but it would help extend the most able. This gets them used to the names of the different layers and also the idea that arteries and veins can have different sizes. It appears to have been created using Adobe Presenter (correct me if I am wrong), which means that the slides come with a video of the presenter- which, due to his actions, does actually enhance the images. Seeing a video like this makes me more interested in Presenter as a product (although, as a Mac user I will just have to stick to using Captivate).

Calorimetry (Captivate)

Posted on Jun 3, 2014 by Tammy Moore Last Activity on Jun 4, 2014

This is one of several Captivate created lessons in my General Chemistry course for high school students. You can find the whole course of shared resources at http://www.virtualhomeschoolgroup.com/mod/resource/view.php?inpopup=true&id=51522. I am gradually converting the lessons that I originally created in Voice Thread over to Captivate. To find the Captivate ones that are already available scan for "SWF and HTML5" in the play group. To get the Captivate files to make your own customizations, look for the "Teacher" group and the link "edit". I plan to have the whole course full of Captivate interactions including labs through this summer, so check back often at the link above.
