How can creativity and innovation enhance your Common Core strategy? Join Ron Beghetto of the University of Connecticut for a discussion of strategies you can use tomorrow in your school.

Consequently, many teachers may find themselves at a crossroads — feeling they must choose between nurturing student creativity or conforming to common standards.

Promoting ABC2 Writing Strategy

Posted on Jan 27, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Jan 27, 2015

Our school's english and social science teachers have developed a writing strategy they call ABC2 (the 2 is superscript—it reads: ABC squared). While all staff are supposed to be utilizing the strategy as we engage in "writing across content areas" (a district-wide model), adoption has been spotty. In an effort to make my own students masters of the strategy and promote ABC2 school-wide, we're redesigning the PDF (provided below), making posters, designing t-shirts, creating animations, videos, and kinetic typography. The four videos accompanying this resource primarily deal with typography in Illustrator.  After a brief hiatus for finals and launching the new semester, the resource of the day is back. Teachers, like students, need a challenge. Mine, for the remainder of the school year, is to create new quests for my students each day. I've no idea if I'll be able to achieve this goal but my students, for the most part, have had fun on this journey.  These tutorials aren't inte... Read More

My Flipped Classroom Experiment

Posted on Jan 3, 2015 by Mark Janke Last Activity on Jan 23, 2015

As part of the 2014 Adobe Generation Professional: Video course, I was asked to share a resource I made using Premiere about my flipped classroom.  This little video doesn't focus on Adobe products but utilizes them as I do a lesson for my students.   As an added bonus, it is a flipped report on flipped learning from early in 2014.  I've now done this for 2 years and the results haven't wavered.  Only one student has failed and that's because the student left all tests blank, turned in no homework, and was often truant.Class statistics: a. Students ages 15-19 b. Videos were each about 3-5 min (one concept each).  A whole lesson is about 10-15 min of instruction.  I made no changes to what I would traditionally share live in class. c.  Were there any students who did not bother to watch? A few at first. However, in our Moodle classes, I made quizzes to complete after watching (short 2-3 min) and I occasionally do examples from their homework. This is the same issue I wo... Read More

Creating Interactive Rubrics with Acrobat Pro

Posted on Dec 26, 2014 by Candie Witherspoon Last Activity on Jan 6, 2015

This is a Professional Development Training Plan that I created as my final assignment in the Adobe Train the Trainer Course. Included with this Training Plan for Using Acrobat Pro and FormsCentral for Creating Interactive Rubrics is a copy of a Workshop Sign-up form, A KWL like pre-assessment survey form, and an Exit Survey or Feedback form. I love the templates provided through Adobe FormsCentral. They are great! Make your assessment process less painless by learning how to convert old Rubrics into interactive ones by simply scanning and tweaking, or start with a new file and create it directly in Acrobat Pro. I have also attached several AdobeTV videos on using Acrobat to be viewed as extra content information. This is just the tip of the iceberg.

Creating Video For Use In Teaching & Learning - Premiere Pro

Posted on Dec 15, 2014 by Rob Knight Last Activity on Dec 16, 2014

A structured 8+ hour professional development plan designed to help educators across all subject areas consider how the creation of video material can support teaching & learning especially using flipped methodologies. We look at the use of Premiere Pro from the capture stage all the way through editing and creating an output video file which educators can use in their teaching & learning via their institutional VLE or a media sharing web site such as YouTube / Vimeo. The course incorporates 'flipped' principles for the direct instruction portion so as to allow educators to maximise the valuable face to face time for guided / independent practice as well as allowing us as course leaders to harness the experience of higher level users and foster an environment of peer support and social learning. The session has been used successfully to support the delivery of media suite facilities in a UK higher education establishment within subject areas of Business, law and Social Science although it is equ...

Help Portrait Worldwide

Posted on Dec 8, 2014 by Clint Balsar Last Activity on Dec 8, 2014

This is taken direct from the website; "Help-Portrait is a global movement of photographers, hairstylists and makeup artists using their time, tools and expertise to give back to those in need." I participated in this for the first time this year and I would highly recommend that every educator finds their local group that will be participating in this next year (Dec. 5th, 2015) and volunteer to work it with a few of your students that are interested in photography. It was a great day of "giving, not taking portraits" and proved to be incredibly rewarding. It was a founded by celebrity photographer Jeremy Cowart and Kyle Chowning in 2008. It is a great opportunity to share the successful career that Jeremy has, as well. My students did a little research into his work before attending the event.

Advertising and Critical Thinking

Posted on Dec 7, 2014 by Craig Richardson Last Activity on Jan 23, 2015

Advertising and Critical Thinking Skills Advertisement is a powerful manipulative force as well as a powerful creative force. Learning how to identify the different strategies used by advertisers and how they are used is an important life skill and involves critical thinking skills.   One project involves having students first evaluate advertisements from different media and brainstorm on the different strategies they believe are being utilized and how effective they believe them to be and whether they are used alone or in tandem.   Second, students will learn about different advertising strategies by watching video and reading articles before creating a summary chart.   Third, students will use various media to create their own advertisements using digital manipulation including still photos and video as well as audio effects.   Fourth, we will explore our views on the ethics of digital manipulation and the inaccurate messages they convey in both advertising and other medi...
