Communicating in A Big Way - Digital Design Using Wide Format Printing
Conditions of Use:

Communication is key in our daily lives. We need to have access to what is on our calendar – the school calendar. And yes, it’s great to have it electronically, but when there is a large group of people checking dates for an event it’s nice to have a large format for at-a-glance information. In this lesson, students will learn to create a large format 18” x 24” calendar file that could be printed and posted in a classroom to use for reference to upcoming events for the month. In our small community it has also become a public relations tool for our school and several are posted in businesses throughout our school district. Using the picture file format of the design, the calendar is also shared electronically each month for smaller print format in the community newsletter and online access.

Foley Art:  The Art of Making Sounds
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

Students will learn how to produce their own sounds to add to their video projects. This technique is called Foley Art. There are several excellent videos that can be shown during class or assigned as a flipped assignment. Either way, these videos should draw great discussion during class on how to capture homemade produced sounds. Some of the videos I use come from YouTube and are titled "The Magic of Making Sound," "This Artist Creates Sounds for Movies," "How the Sound Effects in 'A Quiet Place' Were Made," "Foley Artists: How Movie Sound effects are Made," and "The Hunger Games & Frozen Foley Artists Turn the Sound of Junk into Miracles--Art of Sound Ep. 3." Simply do a search for Foley Art. After the discussion, students will then select a movie trailer, convert the trailer into a file format that works with their video editing software. Once the file is uploaded into their software, students will remove/detach the audio and begin brainstorming appropriate sound effects and how these can be made for the video. Students should compile a list of at least 10 sound effects. After all students have their lists, divided the students into groups. I find that it is necessary to have more than one person in order to effectively produce the sounds. Once students are in their groups, combine their lists, and come up with 10 sounds they think they can personally produce. Students will need to brainstorm props that can be used to produce their sounds. Once the sounds have been created, each student will then add, trim, and edit the sounds and add to the movie trailer.

After the last day of editing, the students will come back together with their group and show their video to the class. Students should explain how sounds were created.

Introduction to Physical Computing (Grade 7)
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share

Developed by the NYCDOE CS education team, the Introduction to Physical Computing course is a 54-hour long introductory computer science course that guides students to explore fundamental CS concepts through tinkering with the micro:bit, a simple programmable computer device. Each unit of the course guides students through the learning process with three practices: analyzing computer applications around them based on a given issue; prototyping a project that reflects the result of the analysis plus their interest; and communicating about their projects, including the functionality of a project, a project development process, influence from other projects and their contribution to a project when working in a group. The curriculum and support sessions assist educators in discovering the most effective way of facilitating this course for their own classroom, while helping them to become comfortable with the main tool, the micro:bit.
