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.

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.

Advanced Typography / Neighborhood

Posted on Aug 11, 2014 by Andrew Kutchera Last Activity on Aug 28, 2014

The following assignment is done over three class periods. Students are encouraged to really think about the place that they are studying, rather than just creating a slick branding typographic treatment. Students have had great results because they explore how a variety of letterforms can come together in one or two words. ————————————— Choose a local neighborhood with which you are familiar. Develop a list of eight characteristics you want to convey. Edit this list down to four or five complimentary terms. You will design the name of the neighborhood to reflect your entire list of  concepts. Note that this is not specifically a logotype project, although these skills will be useful in designing identities. Your project could include – but is not limited to – modifying letterforms, combining diverse typefaces, altering the baselines/kerning, handwriting, and photography. In the sec... Read More

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.
