Digital Foundations: Introduction to Media Design with the Adobe Creative Cloud, Revised Edition
Conditions of Use:

Rating

Digital Foundations uses formal exercises of the Bauhaus to teach the Adobe Creative Suite. All students of digital design and production—whether learning in a classroom or on their own—need to understand the basic principles of design in order to implement them using current software. Far too often design is left out of books that teach software for the trade and academic markets. Consequently, the design software training exercise is often a lost opportunity for visual learning. This revised edition updates the original text for use with Adobe Creative Cloud 2017 software.Order a print copy: http://www.lulu.com/content/paperback-book/digital-foundations-introduction-to-media-design-with-the-adobe-creative-cloud-revised-edition/24461332

El portafolio digital como soporte de la práctica reflexiva en la formación docente
Rating

El presente artículo presenta los resultados de una investigación que analiza el nivel de calidad reflexiva de los profesores, en el marco de un programa innovador de formación docente que introduce la práctica reflexiva, mediada y gestionada a través de un portafolio digital. Aporta a la discusión sobre nuevos usos de un portafolio digital para mejorar los procesos de reflexión por parte del profesorado y sobre modelos alternativos de formación docente; analiza los diferentes niveles de reflexión de los participantes, e identifica los obstáculos para lograr niveles de mayor profundidad. La metodología de investigación adoptada ha sidoun estudio instrumental de caso, en el marco de un programa de formación del profesorado universitario. Los resultados obtenidos muestran que el proceso reflexivo contribuye a una percepción positiva sobre la mejora de su desempeño, la planificación de sus clases y una mejor interacción con los alumnos, y que el uso del portafolio digital ha sido bien valorado para el desarrollo del proceso reflexivo propuesto. Asimismo, se identifican carencias, sobre todo en relación con los niveles de profundidad de la reflexión docente. Por último, se presenta una propuesta de indicadores para impulsar y evaluar el desarrollo reflexivo, basada en los hallazgos del estudio.

Graphic Design and Print Production Fundamentals
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

This textbook -- written by a group of select experts with a focus on different aspects of the design process, from creation to production -- addresses the many steps of creating and then producing physical, printed, or other imaged products that people interact with on a daily basis. It covers the concept that, while most modern graphic design is created on computers using design software, the ideas and concepts don’t stay on the computer. The ideas need to be completed in the computer software, then progress to an imaging (traditionally referred to as printing) process. Keywords are highlighted throughout and summarized in a Glossary at the end of the book, and each chapter includes exercises and suggested readings.
