Shooting and Editing DSLR Video
Educators are faced with the transition from tape based video cameras to tapeless. Flip video type cameras are great for the history teacher but CTE teachers need to give their students experience working with industry standard tools. Digital SLR or DSLR cameras are the current camera of choice for most independent video producers. In this workshop I would like to give educators a hands-on experience using the cameras, lenses, accessories and then working with the files using Adobe Premiere Pro.
Design “Changing the World”
Most people would agree that media has the power to influence culture. So how can students and educators take advantage of this power to make positive change to the culture of our schools? Here are a couple projects our
school is currently working on.
Painting with Photoshop
Wacom drawing tablets are essential for taking advantage of the new Mixer Brush and Bristle Tips in Adobe Photoshop. These new tools allow students an unprecedented ability to create natural and realistic painting effects on a computer. The new Mixer Brush lets you define multiple colors on a single tip to paint with subtle color blends, or you can use a dry brush to blend a photo’s colors to create a beautiful painting. New Bristle Tips enable you to easily paint with lifelike, naturally textured brush strokes using defined bristle properties like shape, length, and stiffness, and you can experiment away by adding Bristle Tips to a variety of Photoshop brush tools.
Digital Storytelling in the Classroom with Adobe Photoshop Elements
Teach your students how to create exciting and engaging digital stories! This 30-hour, hands-on course will explore how to use Adobe Photoshop Elements as a storytelling medium. We will start by learning basic digital photography techniques, focusing on quick and easy ways to incorporate this lifelong skill into the classroom. Then you will learn how to create slideshows that include music and narration using Adobe Photoshop Elements Organizer. Participants will take at least one field trip to take photos and utilize class time to experiment and create classroom projects. Finally, we will spend time exploring ways to use the powerful photo editor in Adobe Photoshop Elements as a communication tool.
Stop Motion Animation with Adobe Premiere Elements
In this 30-hour course, you will learn to create stop-motion animation films using Adobe Premiere Elements. We will explore a variety of mediums including clay, legos, paper, pipe cleaners and white boards to create our animations. We will add music, dialog and sound FX using a variety of audio recording devices, stock libraries and Adobe Soundbooth. Digital video cameras, web cams, and digital still cameras will be used, so feel free to bring your own. We will learn digital video terminology, explore the Premiere Elements interface, and use tools to create transitions, titles, and perform basic editing functions. This class will also cover creating a DVD and exporting video to the web.
During the workshop, participants will work in teams to make curriculum-based projects that will become great examples to use with your students before they create their stop motion films. Participants will be provided with web-based tutorials they can use in their classroom or for staff development. This course is supported by a generous grant from the Adobe Foundation Fund and Community Foundation Silicon Valley.
Adobe Web Institute | 6 Hour Dreamweaver Workshop | Two Week Institute
This self-paced class has something for everyone. It will cover all you need to know to start publishing on the web, including the basics for Adobe Dreamweaver, Flash, Fireworks, and Photoshop/Photoshop Elements. This class will utilize a series of self-paced online lessons, combined with one-on-one teacher interaction and group discussion. All participants will leave with a basic new web site and a CD of the online lessons to use with their students or as a refresher for themselves. Students should bring their own graphics or photographs to edit in class.
Adobe Photoshop Workshop for CTE Teachers

This little video cameras and the FlipShare software have made video so simple anyone can integrate it into their curriculum. This site has a handful of video tutorials that will walk you through how to use the software and a couple handouts to help you with ways to work it into your classroom.
Digital Photographic Novels with Adobe Photoshop
A friend recently sent me a link to an online comic book called http://www.nightzero.com/. I was so inspired by the idea I talked with my Digital Imaging students and they liked the idea of making their own digital comic books. Now we are using this technique in our digital signage system to educate our peers about important topics like recycling. Your students will love creating graphic novels with their digital cameras and a little Photoshop magic. This project is a great way to incorporate reading, writing and team work into your graphic design curriculum.
Adobe Youth Voices - Integrated Writing and Multimedia Project
This tutorial was developed for the participants of the 2007 summer Adobe Youth Voices program. These basic tutorials will give you the skills necessary to start using these two fun and easy programs. It is based off the poem "Where I'm From" by George Ella Lyon, poet and writer: http://www.georgeellalyon.com/where.html

The sample materials are too large to post online. Please contact me if you need the sample files mailed to you on DVD.
Adobe Flash in the Classroom
I have created Flash based tutorials for all the projects we will cover. This method of teaching/learning might be new to you but I think you may find it extremely powerful once you get into it. By putting all my lessons into this web site you have control of your learning. You can go as fast or slow as your learning style requires. You can stop the lesson at any time and practice the techniques or ask me for more clarification. Once you have watched a tutorial, make sure to take the time to practice what you just learned to ensure that you understand the concept.
Here is a pretty good site that has a zipped file that demonstrates the principles of animation very well. http://www.comet-cartoons.com/3ddocs/charanim/
