This is an assignment that I haven't done for a couple of years, so you may need to adapt the instructions on making a custom shape in PS to the latest version of CC. This is a fun project. Yo teach my students about the Golden Proportion, I first show them the first 15 minutes of the incredibly outdated but still fun cartoon: "Donald Duck in Mathemagic Land." Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4E8CUmYmUM We talk about the golden proportion and where it can be found, I show them the above video. I then have them create their own golden spiral in Adobe Illustrator (which nobody ever gets perfect, but encourage them to do their best.) Then they copy it and paste it into Photoshop, make 8 versions of a custom shape with it (one version for each possible variation, all of them constrained) and have them apply it to various famous works of art. (Great Wave of Kanagawa is a good one. So is Van Gogh's Starry Night) Then I have them find other images to apply them to and some of their own work. We then have a discussion about what they've discovered. It's great for photography especially, since so much emphasis for beginners is the rule of thirds.
Visual storytelling is creating imotions through your voice. A Story is a Journey. "it is the journey, and not the destination that makes our story more meaningful." Objective.This lesson plan helps educators to engage learners in to peek into their own experiences to find a topic that they are concerned with and work through series of story telling concepts that are practiced by master story tellers , and finally able to describe and define story purpose, visual to empathize the audience to call for an action. Method1 day workshop - class room learning and field photographyActivities 1. Story telling concepts - Find your story2. Design Visual concept3. Create it ! Improve it!4. Share It and Obtain feedback
This learning module encourages students to translate what they've learned during the semester into publications intended for a popular, lay audience. They do so by learning the history and cultural significance of zines (powerful, subversive publications that were used to question social mores, cultivate communities for LGBTQ folks, People of Color, and other marginalized groups, and share knowledge in low-cost, accessible ways) and using the research methods they've learned during the class to produce a zine of their own. While students are individually researching their final topic projects, they spend the first two weeks of this unit learning about zine history, ethics, and design. The next two weeks are dedicated to workshops devoted to teaching the basics of Adobe InDesign CC. The primary goal and outcome of the project is to deepen their understanding of their final research project by producing an analytical work that resonates both inside and outside the classroom. Though this final project was originally executed in a class that focused on themes of migration and globalization, this capstone project and related modules may be tailored to any class with interdisciplinary themes. Given the rich history of zines, this project would work especially well for courses in gender studies, ethnic studies, feminist studies, or service- and activist-oriented classes. The end products of this unit are an 8-page zine produced in InDesign, along with a traditional response paper (optional). The primary learning outcomes for this assignment are: Learn how to speak about cultural objects (film, advertisements, paintings, short stories, buildings, places, programs) and analyze devices pertinent to each genre Produce a short "close reading" of a cultural object as it relates to our class topic of migration and globalization Explore alternative methods of publishing work through a pamphlet or a short zine Learn how to format instructional presentations on InDesign.
Adobe Lightroom CC is an all-in-one photo service that makes it easy to add, view, edit, and share photos from any device - at home, school, and beyond. When any photos are added or edited in Lightroom, all connected devices are automatically updated. In this activity, students will learn how to add images to the Lightroom library, the basics of how to edit, organize, and share, and how to use Lightroom CC images in Photoshop.
New Adobe global study reveals that creative problem-solving skills are central to success in the future workforce but are not adequately supported in today’s curricula. In researching Creative Problem Solving in Schools: Essential Skills Today’s Students Need for Jobs in Tomorrow’s Age of Automation, Adobe surveyed 1600 educators and 400 policymakers from the U.K., Japan, Germany and the U.S. and learned how the people shaping education and students’ experiences view creative problem solving as a critical skill. Overwhelmingly, 86 percent of global educators believe that students who excel at creative problem-solving will have higher-earning job opportunities in the future, and 85 percent agreed that these same skills are in high demand by today’s employers for senior level and higher paying careers. Additionally, three quarters of respondents predict that professions that require creative problem-solving skills are less likely to be impacted by automation. Yet despite this clear consensus, there is a huge disconnect with what is happening in the classroom today. 90 percent of educators believe we need to find better ways to integrate it into the curricula, and more than half of educators explain that they do not have the tools, training or knowledge to nurture creative problem solving in their students. Of the policymakers surveyed, 88 percent advocate for finding a way to reform the current curricula in their region to better nurture creative problem solving in schools. To learn more about the study, view the infographic and visit the research study microsite to learn how other educators are teaching these critical skills.

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 Adobe Spark handout fouces on working with immersive technologies. Specifically focusing on 360 video, using equipment such as the Ricoh Theta & Kodak. This then follows through to the post-production workflows in Adobe Premiere Pro. This resource also guides students through the difference between VR,360 Video and AR. There are many ways in which the 4th medium is being used and this can only grow! Hopefully for the better of Mankind in developing empathy, wellbeing alongside being storytelling mediums. So there is context, practicae and practical. I hope you enjoy it! Plus your students can view this on any mobile device and maybe create their own spark pages! Immersive Worlds: Working with 360 Video. Spark Page link Designed for undergraduate students in Digital Media & Media Production originally, it could be used for higher secondary.
(See Lesson Plan in the files for more Detail) In this project, students will create a mood board filled with visual pieces of personal inspiration. This "mood board" acts as their style guide for the work that they attempt to create while in class. While I use this for my Digital Photography class, it could easily be adapted for a Graphic Design or Web Design course. I have a unit on creativity/inspiration that I do at the beginning of the year with my students. In this unit, we discuss potential pitfalls to creating and how we can avoid them. Additionally, we talk about how inspiration can come from many sources. That is where this project comes in to play. They use Photoshop to put together various images on a canvas that have a cohesive look/feel/tone. Afterwards, they have a reference point that they can use for inspiration throughout the year. I encourage my photography students to incorporate artwork from different areas (i.e. sculpture, painting, etc...) in their mood board, too. After doing this project, I will often have my students make mood boards as a part of other, larger projects (like ad campaigns). Encourage your students to attribute each image used and explain to them the concept of Fair Use for education beforehand.
This lesson explores the historical/alternative method for adding color to a photograph. In this lesson students will create a photograph with stunning composition in black & white and add color to the photograph by hand to create a hand-colored photograph.

This project was originally written for an advanced-level digital photography class, but could easily be adjusted for a graphic design class or lower level class. Brief Description: (please see attached PDF for lesson plan) This project helps to develop students compositing skills while simultaneously learning about art history. Students choose a famous painting and then work to replace various elements of the painting (people, items, etc...) with their own photographs, paying special attention to the pose, lighting, edit and more. See files for more information!
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.
