Transcript of DESIGN through Islamic Architecture

DESIGN through Islamic Architecture
Islamic Architecture
This source is relevant to the big idea of Islamic Architecture. The video is accurate for this project because it uses vocabulary words that are involved in the elements and principles of design, such as repetition and pattern. This gives a direct link to design for the students and they experience visuals which contribute to both design and Islamic Architecture. The video also talks about the history around Islamic pattern and geometric art which will help give context to the techniques of design. By relating this skill of problem solving through design to Islamic architecture and pattern, the students will be motivated to achieve skills in creation and therefore be confident to learn.
Techniques and Tutorials

ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR
https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator.html

This resource is helpful for the students when they will be creating rough drafts of their cut and paste paper composition in adobe illustrator. Working in Adobe Illustrator allows the students to visualize compositions before they are permanent and glued down. This also allows for transparency techniques when working with shape and form. This website is a good resource because it is made by the Adobe company, and has direct links to tutorials, suggestions, FAQS, and comments from customers. It is accurate because it has knowledge from the actual makers of the product. The only downside to the website is that it could offer advice from only one point of view. Sometimes students might need advice from a more relateable source such as a student or young adult. Also see below link.

Design Principles

Podcasts

ADOBE PHOTOSHOP
This video tutorial is helpful for students when using photoshop as their tool to create rough drafts for compositions, or to use this tool to create a composition. These tutorials are helpful because they provide both visual reference and audible reference to the program. The student receives visuals while a voice explains the actions, steps, etc. This is helpful so students who learn differently can all experience the same resource and guidance.
This link to a page on vimeo is a accurate resource to use for students in high school. The content is present, as well as a high skill level of working. This is a great way to get students involved in learning the principles of design and finding relateable information that goes along with current world issues. the page offers videos on the overall design principles, as well as each individual one so students see the overall picture, and then specifics with examples.

The Swinburne University of Technology offers much information on this website. This accurate site shows the design principles visually and through written text. This is available to students who cannot understand through video means.
For Example...
This podcast channel offers many intriguing and highly academic talks and lectures on design from the Swinburne University of Technology. These podcasts give an interesting view on design from a high level that prepares high schoolers for college, and gives them insight on the environment of lectures while they are learning content at a high school level. The lectures are quite long, so sharing clips would be the best way to use these podcasts.

1. Upon completion of this learning experience, the learner will be able to understand the elements and principles of design by identifying the specific element or principle next to a visual example and receiving 15 out of 18 correct.
3. Upon completion of this learning experience, the learner will be able to analyze and evaluate three finished compositions, explaining how they represent the elements and principles of design, measured by specific reflections questions and a self- evaluation rubric.
Technology Objectives:
1. Upon completion of this learning experience, the learner will be able to understand the elements and principles of design by identifying them in images found in an online scavenger hunt, receiving 15 out of 18 correct.
2.Upon completion of this learning experience, he learner will be able to create a series of three compositions in Adobe Illustrator or Adobe Photoshop that reflect the principles and elements of design, measured by a specified rubric.
3. Upon completion of this learning experience, the learner will be able to evaluate three finished compositions by logging a continuous artist journal in the form of a blog or discussion board, measured by specific questions each day throughout the art-making process.
Video Presentations in the Classroom
Video presentations in the classroom have positive affects to teaching a technique based lesson such as design. In the area of arts education, I believe that a concept or "big idea" must be present in each lesson that teaches a technique. This is how the student will be motivated to learn the skill, and therefore, complete the project. It is also important to connect these skills with events or ideas that are happening outside of the classroom in the world, visual culture, or other societies. This is why it will be helpful to use video and computer presentations in the classroom. I have been using powerpoints for my past lesson presentations, but now that I have worked with prezi and other templates I have found this to be easy to use, and successful in putting all resources in one place. Videos, tutorials, links, and images can all be accessible in one presentation that can help the students make connections from the lesson and techniques to the current world around us.
