Adobe Voice - Logo Design Process

Posted on Nov 30, 2015 by Maureen Clark Last Activity on Dec 1, 2015

Students used Adobe Voice to explain the design process and development of their logo idea for the 80th year celebration of Marketing Education.  However, this sample is based on graphic design, any subject could use these Adobe Voice examples in their classroom. When looking for resources on how I could incorporate Adobe Voice into my lessons, I had a hard time find examples that really applied to my classroom.   So this lesson is not on how to design a logo, but more on how I applied using Adobe Voice to the project.  My students narrowed down the 16+ sketches for the logo to three ideas that they wanted to explore further. The students developed those 3 ideas to 3 final products that we emailed to the client. The client went through all the logos and picked one logo from each student that would be presented to the client "live" in the classroom at a later date.   However, I still want to hear about the other 2 ideas that they had developed. This is where Adobe Voice played... Read More

PowerSchool-SchoolMessenger Integration

Posted on Nov 10, 2015 by Beverly Baker Last Activity on Nov 10, 2015

Down to the wire on this one.  I had a lot of fun using After Effects for the title page the animation screen.  In fact, I hope to find time to go back and use stills with animations for the rest of project rather that camera video.  While I drew I drew on Marks skill set to do the title page, Deila skills helped me through the second sequence's animations.  I also played around with orientation animations and even clip art. A word of thanks to all the facilitators for the course, I enjoyed it ever so much!  Can't wait for games tomorrow! PowerSchool-SchoolMessenger Integration

Imagine a component, Draw it with Illustrator, Save it to a Flash Drive, Cut it with a Laser Cutter, Assemble the component, Use it!

Posted on Nov 1, 2015 by Andy Marks Last Activity on Nov 1, 2015

I am a M.E.S.A. adviser in Utah's Granite School District: MESA stands for Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement. This year's project is a prosthetic hand with "integrated computer science elements". The hand is to be controlled with an Arduino. In the past, other MESA advisers and their students have struggled with the "carpentry" aspects of designing and building things. I thought this year's project would be no different as I played with designing and building a hand that could be computer controlled.  I modeled the hand after my own, limiting it to an index finger and opposing thumb. The first hand I made took hours to build from three 1/2" layers of plywood, hand machined to accept a small stepper motor and to have enough room for a 16T, 32P, 5mm bore pinion gear driving a "gear finger" drawn in InkScape. The finger looks like my index finger, but at its base, where a knuckle resides, is a 48T, 32P gear. My first "gear finger" was cut b... Read More

Shot Construction Worksheet - Flipped Learning Lesson

Posted on Oct 21, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Nov 19, 2015

This is a revised version of this post. This short activity provides students with an opportunity to practice storyboarding a range of shots portraying familiar situations. There is a predominant focus on subtlety and it also provides opportunities for sharing and reflection to better deconstruct the work they are doing. This lesson is designed for Media and Photography classes but would work well in an English class that is working on a film as text assessment. Realising that I often spend a good portion of beginning of the lesson going through examples and shot types I thought I would try a flipped learning approach - the lesson begins with a Video Essay to be watched by the students before the lesson so that they can get straight into the activity and use the class time to their advantage. I have attached a link to the YouTube video and also the shot construction worksheet.  Just in case the YouTube link doesn't work, this is it: Read More

Lord of the Rings Edit

Posted on Oct 19, 2015 by Brian O'Dell Last Activity on Oct 20, 2015

I received this project a few years ago.  Its the script, soundtrack and RAW video clips from the first Lord of the Rings movie. The project included script comprehension, clip edits and cutaway designations, sound/audio design and timing of reaction shots according to the actual movie.  The best part of this is the students have to determine the correct clips, sound files from the clips and clip designations and they can add reactions and cutaways the actual movie does not have.  This is a great production edit project! PS: The video starts at Aragorn saying "If by my life or death....The audio quality will need edited!!!! Let the fun begin! PLEASE HAVE YOUR STUDENTS CROP THE TIME CODE OFF THE PROJECT! I have created a drop box to download the zip file of items.  If you do not have a drop box log in, go to and create an account, Its Free.
