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.

SCORM based Assessments for Years 11, 12 and 13 Economics for Moodle

Posted on Jul 30, 2014 by Tom Neumann Last Activity on Jul 30, 2014

All assessments are intended to be used as a form of reflective learning as well as preparing students for online assessment in general. There are no traditional multiple choice questions in these assessments. Each question is worth one mark unless stated otherwise. Students cannot move to previous questions during the assessment but are free to do so during the review process. Students must give an answer for a question to move forward. When students finish the assessment they can press the review button which will allow them to see their answer for each question as well as the accepted correct answer. They can then press the explain button which shows them an explanation of the concept(s) tested. Available on www.riccarton.school.nz/assessment.html

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.

Data Visualisation

Posted on Jun 30, 2014 by Julie Golledge Last Activity on Jun 30, 2014

Students in Home Economics classes need to understand where foods are produced within Australia.  So that they can have an appreciation of how food travels to get to their plate.   Students could use different coloured dots for different food groups to highlight on an Australian state or the whole country where are food is grown. The dots could also be shown in different sizes to show the amount produced. Idea from Matt Hankinson - Adobe Education Exchange Site for the Vector Map which can be modified. http://www.vectortemplates.com/vector-countries-australia.php This site shows where is Australia products are made by Australian Companies. http://www.locateaustralian.com.au/

A 60-minute lesson in which students use a pre-built Brackets template to create a simple information-based App. This lesson does not require any in-depth knowledge of coding; the students simply alter button names and add their information to paragraphs and unordered lists. The purpose of the lesson is so that students can learn about alternative ways of presenting information and in the process integrate some current ICT into their work.

Introducing InDesign

Posted on Jun 27, 2014 by Mark Finlayson Last Activity on Aug 24, 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... 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 Aug 28, 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...
