Standard Practical Exercise Reflection Sheet

Posted on Jan 27, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on Jan 27, 2015

I use this for every practical exercise I have my students undertake (whether it is animation, photographic, film, planning, whatever).  I have students collate all of these together as a sort of a practical journal - the end result is a go to cheat sheet for all the skills we have covered. It is a brief selection of questions (with prompts) and is broad enough to suit any practical task. It is designed to be done by hand in the last 5 or 10 minutes of a practical session.

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.
