    Templates for creating fake Instagram posts and profiles Digital Asset by Megan Townes Oct 21, 2013 Products Photoshop Photoshop Elements 232k 56

    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!

    Curating a Digital Archive Using Muse, Audition, and Acrobat (by Rachel Isom) Project by Todd Taylor Aug 14, 2017 Products Acrobat Audition Muse 11 0

    Students will employ Adobe Acrobat, Audition, and Muse in this module to help create and curate a digital edition based on rare materials pertaining to their university’s history. They will propose a project that investigates journalistic coverage of a campus event or traces similar events or ephemera contributions to better understand campus history. Students will annotate part of these materials based on supplementary research, and they’ll present their findings in written and oral forms. Students will be immersed in history and digital humanities practices, honing their abilities to research, synthesize, and present information. While this unit is based on particular materials found in UNC’s Wilson Library, it can be adapted to suit any campus’s materials or rare book collections.

    Cultural Anthropology Podcast Using Audition (by Anneke Schwob) Project by Todd Taylor Aug 14, 2017 Products Audition 14 0

    In this module, groups of 4-5 students will use Adobe Audition to create podcasts detailing the various facets of a cultural institution (farmer’s market, gaming club, museum, etc.) that interests them. During their podcast, students will engage in a combination of non-fiction, journalism, and anthropological ethnography to report on their observations and conclusions about their chosen institution. The podcast should include observations, quoted audio from interview subjects as well as paraphrase, and, if appropriate, music and diegetic sound to help provide narrative shape and transitions. In creating these podcasts, students will strengthen their ability to participate in discourses within various social science and communications fields.

Students must include the exhibit’s theme and its importance, styles of artwork featured, and examples from the exhibit. Using InDesign, students will balance the organizational and spatial aesthetics of graphic design with visual elements from the exhibit itself in order to craft an informational and visually appealing brochure. In doing so, they will engage deeply and critically in the content of an art exhibit, increasing their understanding of the humanities, while also improving their creativity, organization, and research skills.

    Telling the Same Story in Five Modes: A Comparative Media Production Course Project by Todd Taylor Aug 11, 2017 Products Audition Muse Adobe Creative Cloud
    +6
    196 1

    This resource provides an overview, syllabus, and sample student work for a college-level media production course. The primary learning outcome for the course is for students to deepen their understanding of "how media work" both rhetorically and materially by (re)presenting the same documentary narrative in five different modes, using at least five different Adobe Creative Cloud applications: (1) Print Magazine using InDesign (2) Audio Podcast using Audition (3) Film using Premiere Pro (4) Website using Muse, Spark, or XD (5) Mobile Application using XD [*6] Photography using Photoshop *Note that in this class, students didn't present photographic collections per se, but they used Photoshop a great deal to develop media for the other genres and applications.

    #RethinkHighSchool: Start a Business Project by Mike Skocko Jul 19, 2017 Products Adobe Creative Cloud 199 4

    Four years ago I started a discussion on the EdEx titled Employees Only - No Students Wanted. To avoid confusion I added: The idea is more metaphoric than literal. Two years ago I began thinking about the idea literally: Could we actually start a business at school? To make a long story short, after researching the market, networking with the players, discussing it with the students, and finally getting approval from the school and district, we launched Mac Lab Media on January 9, 2017. Less than a week later someone told me about Real World Scholars. Soon thereafter we were accepted into the program (during their first mid-year application window) and I replaced my Rube Goldberg-like edu-solution with Real World Scholar's tested, vetted, 100% legal Ed Corps model. Find more info here. Mac Lab Media is a commercial art foundry. I've replaced the assessment component with the Grit-Based Rubric but this paragraph from Minimum Wage sums up my intent: The ultimate goals, however, have nothing to do with grades. For the Mac Lab, our goal is to become a self-funded learning environment by the 2020/2021 school year. For the students, our goal is to provide the training and experience necessary to launch their own commercial art foundries upon graduation. ----- NOTE: All #RethinkHighSchool resources here on the EdEx rely on the concepts expressed in my (re)Imagine blog post.

    #RethinkHighSchool: Gamifying the Classroom Project by Mike Skocko Jul 18, 2017 Products Adobe Creative Cloud 187 0

    Did you know that a well-designed game leverages Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal Development, Csikszentmihalyi’s Flow, Dweck’s Growth Mindset, and Duckworth’s Grit? I sure didn’t until encountering those surprising connections in month nine of my master’s program in 2011 while working through the introductory quest line at Gamestar Mechanic. Okay, so maybe my digital mentor didn’t reference those researchers directly but the concepts were certainly front and center. Armed with that knowledge, my experience playing World of Warcraft (I was required to play for 10 days) was transformative. After a few days I knew I had to introduce a gamified curriculum delivery system in my classroom. Unfortunately, in May of 2011 there were no viable options to do so (3D Game Lab was still in beta at that point) so my students and I set out to create our own system. Here's a peek at where we are today with Game On, our free WordPress plugin. Whether you opt for a commercial, analog, or even our own system, I urge you to consider how well-implemented game mechanics might enhance your students' experience in your learning environment.

    #RethinkHighSchool: The Series Project by Mike Skocko Jul 18, 2017 Products Adobe Creative Cloud 416 0

    I wrote (re)Imagine in response to the Super School Challenge. Our staff wasn't too excited about my ideas but a few others—including some of the folks from one of the winning schools ($10M grant) who popped by to observe and discuss—have shown interest. The (re)Imagine blog post isn't a plan for the future; it's just one more part of what we're currently doing in the Mac Lab (my classroom). Since virtually everything else I'll be posting will reference information in (re)Imagine, you might as well give it a go if you're interested in rethinking your own learning environment. And who knows, you might even find an idea or two that'll work for you and your students. :) NOTE: If (re)Imagine is in tl;dr territory—it's around a 30 minute read—I apologize but don't know how to work around the issue. According to WordPress, I've made 330 revisions since the article was first published. I actually have tried to be clear and concise but when challenging common sense one must tread with caution so as not to unnecessarily offend the reader. *sigh* Unfortunately, tact isn't one of my strengths. Nor is writing, but I do try. (Dyslexia is such a misunderstood superpower.) I'll be sharing more #RethinkHighSchool resources so you can easily find them on the EdEx. Click on the magnifying glass at the top of the page and search for for RethinkHighSchool (without the #) and you'll find the rest.
