Adobe Dimension CC opens up the world the world of 3D design to all kinds of digital artists and designers by making it easy to create photorealistic 3D images. In this activity, students are introduced to the Dimension application, learn about 2D and 3D images, learn how to work with materials, lighting, and 3D models, and learn how to render and export projects.
User experience (UX) design is commonly defined as the process to design experiences and interactions with a digital or physical product that is useful, easy, and enjoyable. User interface design (UI) is commonly defined as the process of designing the visual look of the product and the functionality of the interaction. In this activity, students will be introduced to user experience (UX) and user interface (UI) design, the role of designers, and the design process. To reinforce UX and UI design principles, students will assess and provide analysis on the design of an existing product.
Students animated the melody of a jazz song using imagery inspired by Paul Klee from hand drawn and painted surfaces, making shapes in Photoshop and animating in After Effects. The final animation was given to our school's jazz band, under the direction of Patrick Bowen, without any audio and then interpreted by the students into a new song. The piece was projected during one of their performances and they played their composition live.
I ran this program during Spring semester 2016 with success. I will continue this year with a new batch of 3rd and 4th grade students. The children really got into it and were quite competitive. Students earn badges for each of 6 levels.There are 23 steps in all, each designed to be completed in a 55-minute session, making the program 22-23 weeks long. To see the program in progress, go to: http://digicorps.businesscatalyst.com/index.html Please feel free to download and revise anything so that it fits your program. I have included the Illustrator file for the badges so that you can customize them for your program.

This is an Adobe Spark tutorial based on a session I run within various courses here at the University. DOWNLOAD LESSON PLAN LINK TO ADOBE SPARK TUTORIAL The session should last about 45 mins. I have run this session in many forms for a number of years. It appears to work with many fundamental concepts being understood. I am really pleased with this latest Adobe Spark manifestation which students can follow along with on phones and pads and have access to within our virtual learning environments. Enjoy! Comments welcomed! Ian.
This task is designed to assist students in analysing what goes into film, TV, game and webseries titles. It then moves on to brainstorming and then designing titles for their own project. Works really well with these resources (as well as my previously posted storyboard template): Art of the Title How They Did It
"Take A Stand" Project pd editing images example Objective: You are to go through the typical design process to create a poster about a documentary on an event from the Civil Rights movement in the United States. Introduction For this project you will be role playing – you are pretending you are a designer for a graphics design firm. Your firm just got a contract to design a poster for a public television program entitled, "Take a Stand". You have been assigned to make this poster. The program is a documentary on the Civil Rights movement in the United States. The documentary goes through the events and effects of the Civil Rights movement from the 1950's through the 1960's. It is being produced by Public Broadcasting System (PBS) and will be shown on channel 58. The documentary is planned to be aired (shown) next year starting on January 15th -- the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
A common core aligned geometry lesson curated and altered to support 21st century learning skills. Students will learn first about calculating the surface area of a polyhedra (they should have been exposed to this concept prior to this lesson but not completely necessary) and then draw and create a "net." Students will identify using key vocabulary, the necessary parts of the polyhedra and manipulate several virtual nets and shapes. Students will work in teams to create several paper versions of geometric shapes and finally after watching tutorials, make one in the Adobe product of their choice. Students will finalize their lesson and display their understanding of polyhedra in a final written essay, which should include a picture of their finished polyhedra.
Want to use social media in the classroom but it's blocked? Never fear, use these templates to create Instagram profiles or photo uploads from famous people from history, fictional characters or today's celebrities, politicians and sports stars. These Instagram templates will allow you and your students to create a fake Instagram post and/or an Instagram profile. Editable components include the image(s), username, profile picture, post text, first comment, and number of photo uploads, followers and following. You will need to have the Roboto font installed on your computer if you would like the font to best reflect the font used by Instagram. I recommend downloading and loading this set of Instagram actions into Photoshop so you can apply Instagram-like filters to the photographs that you use in assembling a profile or photo. Credit to motheer-212. Check out this 'How to' on loading actions. Students will need to know how to insert images, move image layers, and edit text. What a great way to introduce them to these basic Photoshop concepts. Have fun!
The multiple me project was created for the first year graphic design students. Its a great project for using multiple adobe applications and works for any of these courses Photography foundation, Photoshop foundation and InDesign Foundation. The student plan and execute a photoshoot of themselves or a model photographing themselves multiple times in one scene. The students need to pay attention to depth of field, focus and shoot in manual mode. The camera can not be moved once the first image of the background is shot. Then using a timer or a friend they take multiple shots of themselves in the scene in various poses and positions. The students tend to work this project much more when they use themselves as the model. I use this photo of me dressed as the Village People playing poker to get the students inspired (all though none of them know who the village people are anymore so I might need to remake it soon). Using Adobe Bridge or Lightroom they filter through and choose five images plus the image of the background. They need to pay attention to placement of the model/themselves in the various shots as to not overlap them. I start the project having the students sketch out 3 or 4 ideas on paper. We discuss their ideas in class and they choose a runner. Once they have their 6 shots they open them up in photoshop as layers either from Bridge or Lightroom. Using selection tools and Layer masks they paint in the multiple shots of themselves in the image. You can search how its done on Youtube. The students are then asked to create a booklet in InDesign with entrance reflections, sketches of ideas, sketch of runner idea, final PS image and exit reflection. I will include some examples of the booklets, final images and rubric. Super fun project for all ages.

Teachers have very little time free outside of their allotted preparation time. Therefore planning and creating learning resources needs to be simple and speedy. Adobe Spark Video ( https://spark.adobe.com/sp/) is the perfect tool for making quick reusable videos that explain key concepts. Don't forget, make it once and you can use these resources again and again. How do I make a 30 second video? 1. Decide on the key concept you want the students to learn, keep it simple. 2. Make an outline of the key points to help your audience understand what the video is for. In my example I use Spark Post to do this) This also acts as a make do script. 3. Open Spark Video 4. Record the key points, one per slide. Keep these super short. 5. Go back and add images, icons, text or video to reinforce the key points. 6. Add a little background audio to enhance the experience and help the narrative flow a little. 7. Publish and share the video with your loving students! Can you show me how? Here's my video demonstrating how to make a 30 second video: https://vimeo.com/264988788 And what does the final video look like? It looks like this: https://vimeo.com/264866141 To find out more about Adobe for Schools in the UK, visit the Adobe for Teachers website.
In this resource I aim to show you how to create a simple interactive video using free apps. How do I make video? First I created my video with Adobe Spark Video (Free). In my example I use a Key Stage 2 Maths example of introducing negative numbers. Adobe Spark Video is about the easiest video tool on the market in my opinion. Watch my example, but note there is no interaction at this point. Click here: https://youtu.be/1aEpaKjuJQM If you like the look of what Adobe Spark Video does here's a short video to help get started: https://vimeo.com/255069980 Why bother with interactivity? We know video is a massively powerful tool to aid learning on it's own but by adding interaction to the video we can allow students to test their understanding during and immediately at the end of their viewing experience. This allows them to rewatch and if necessary relearn the content to ensure they understand. How do we add Interactivity to video? H5P is a Norwegian company that offer many excellent interactive tools but the interactive video is extremely powerful as it allows us to add interactions, ask students questions about the learning content and much more. You can sign up for free and learn more here: https://h5p.org/ I made this short video to demonstrate the basic process of adding some simple questions to my video.

A poly art introductory tutorial for Year 10 Digital Media.
This resource shows an example of a student using Adobe Spark Video to create a school visit journal. The journal not only records the events of the day but can be used back in the classroom for developing writing and as a resource for speaking and listening activities. We think the concept of the journal could also be explored for GCSE subjects with students creating really useful content for revision exercises. Adobe Spark Video is a free app on IOSand on the browser, so if you have internet you can always access Adobe Spark. Our example video can be found here: https://spark.adobe.com/video/sc3IT3jZuhYNP Or watch the video on Vimeo here: https://vimeo.com/255063563 A short tutorial demonstrating how to get started with Adobe Spark Video can be found here: https://vimeo.com/255069980 To find out more about Adobe for Schools in the UK, visit the Adobe for Teachers website
This resource is all about creating a simple app prototype for assessing Key Stage 3 Science. I have opted to focus on photosynthesis but you could use this for any part of the science curriculum. This could also be a fun cross curricula project building digital skills and reinforcing core learning. Either way Adobe XD is easy and fun. What is Photosynthesis? Photosynthesis is the process used by plants and algae to create chemical energy from sunlight. “Almost all life on Earth depends upon this process. Photosynthesis is also important in maintaining the levels of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.” (BBC Bitesize) More about photosynthesis here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/education/guides/zpwmxnb/revision User experience design is the process of enhancing user satisfaction by improving the usability, accessibility, and pleasure experienced during the interaction between the user and the product. In this case we’ll create an assessment app prototype. The first thing we need to consider is what the app will do. We want our students to be able to self assess their level of understanding of photosynthesis (or whatever you decide your theme might be). So let’s start with three key questions that a KS3 science student should know the answer to: What three things do plants need for photosynthesis? (Answer: Carbon Dioxide, Water and Light (A source of energy))What two things do plants make by photosynthesis? (Answer: Glucose and Oxygen)Photosynthesis takes place inside plant cells in small objects called XXXX? (Answer: Chloroplasts) I have created a template that you can edit to suit your needs or to let your students edit. The Adobe XD template can be found here: https://adobe.ly/2GfX4J0 First watch this 2 minute introduction to Adobe XD and interactivity: https://vimeo.com/256430779 Then watch this tutorial about how you might edit the XD template to use for your own Science (or any other subject) assessment tool: https://vimeo.com/256434537 Adobe XD is part of Adobe Creative Cloud, you can find out more here: https://www.adobe.com/uk/products/xd.html Watch this video tutorial to learn more about Adobe XD: https://vimeo.com/219689638 To find out more about Adobe for Schools in the UK, visit the Adobe for Teachers website
This is a short camera, shot, writing exercise to allow students to plan and edit before they shoot, and to have students learn to be concise in dialogue, action, movement of camera and actors, also in choosing shot composition, combining shots, look thoroughly at locations, costuming, and props, all in service to tell the story in a single short scene.
This is the curriculum map, standards-aligned, activities, assessments, etc.
Students are always looking for book suggestions so why not start a collection of book trailers for students to peruse when looking for their next book to read? Using the video-enhancing features of Adobe Premiere Clip — such as music, lighting, and transitions — students create engaging and dramatic book trailers that relate the “feel” of the book and entice readers.

Students use Adobe Spark to create a visual biography of a historic figure. Students tell the person’s story, leveraging the layout, design, and interactivity of Spark Page, Post, and Video to emphasize important events or aspects of their life. The goal is for students to use a digital media tool to communicate their ideas and help viewers visualize and understand their subject.
