My creative vision is based on setting up teaching environments that foster a high level of engagement. This springboard will allow for students to first learn specific new skills, then to collaborate on how these new skills could be used in different ways, and finally to apply the first two parts of this to create a product that demonstrates new thoughts and new directions. Rubrics for such work will be anchored in the following criteria: originality, flexibility, collaboration and newly... Read More

In this art inspired assignment, students used the lists of marine species from the NE United States. In a conjunction with NOAA we developed a mixed media assignment for students to "tell their story" after they had done online research. This was a terrific assignment and one that brought all students into creating their visions.

Adobe's move to subscription based software is a game changer in terms of how I manage software and upgrades in my High School. Previously my district could purchase site licensing that would cover both our high schools. We are still using CS5 but got new iMac's over the summer and that software is less stable. I have to continually run scripts on individual machines to keep the software running. If I can be provided with an comprehensive informational page on licensing it would be helpful. I need...

Good morning Adobe Family,
I am having doozie of a time trying to develop a PD plan. I have a group of students that I would love to use InDesign as a catalysis to help promote literacy in the classroom. I have a group of students that are below reading level and I would like to improve their reading. My plan is to use InDesign as a way to as a way to enrich further reading literacy opportunities. Im actually stuck at this point.

We—the students and I—have finally received the green light from the superintendent to formally roll out Linked Learning 2.0 in our district next year and he wants it scaled. Several teachers and admins have already asked to sit down and explore that possibility.

The State of Vermont is developing a portfolio assessment for Design and Visual communications. This means that we will have panels that review and assess both still work as well as time-based (aka: animation, web design, video) projects. We are looking for an online site that would allow us to do that. Any ideas? We bantered around Behance and Slide show, but that is not conducive to (in particular) interactive and animated works.

Wondering what the feelings out there are, regarding drawing tablets. I have my own Wacom Intuos 5 and love it. What is a great tablet for a HS classroom? I have 12 chairs, would likely get 12 tablets, so economics are important....but would still rather have a piece of equipment that will last over something super cheap today.
Any advice is welcome!
Thanks so much,

I have started to create a series of video tutorials based on the subject area my students are studying. Their area of study is Interactive Media, which includes a great number of creative prospects.
What experience have you in the creation of these type of video's, and have you been able to assess progress after introducing such tutorials?

The topic of discussion in any art class is to bring out the creativity in individuals, students, teachers or professionals by us. Perhaps a better starting place would be to understand our own creativity levels. Any experiences, best practices and thoughts on how we go about it. An oft repeated statement is that creativity diminishes as we age. Whether true or not, how to sustain our creativity levels, measuring methods and ensure that we infuse greater or better techniques to bring out creativity in other... Read More

I would like to gauge the interest level and understanding the best practices in creating print designs and motions graphics with reference to topics in healthcare. Typically creative designers with experience in healthcare are much sought by advertising agencies, either as a full employment or freelancing.
I would be able to add meaningful content with relevance to the experience and specific topics. Feel free to ask your queries. By the way, I have learnt by asking from my peers.

In the Adobe Education Train the Trainer course we found a lot of talks about Creativity and the role of creativity in education.
I find very interesting and useful informations about these subjects, but not so much about measuring the creativity. I am a scientist by education and I am interested to know more about this subject from educators like you.
I list here two resources that I found useful on this subject:

Just curious, when introducing a new software to beginners, is it better to introduce the software interface and methodically get to know tools and panels with small activities, OR, is it better to get the students excited with one project that concentrate on one ore more tool/skill?
Is it better to use books for learning skills, OR, demonstrations?

I have a student who really wants to develop mobile apps and wants to learn how to code. As a Design & Visual Communications teacher, I'm pretty comfortable with html and css and that is about it. I know that the best language for coding apps is Objective C, but that is pretty deep water for a kid learning to swim. He's a bright kid, but he's never programmed before I don't think he's ready to start at that level. What is the best building blocks for him? Should it be basic? Action script? Ba... Read More

Does anyone out there have strategies or prior lessons/plans/exercises/activities designed to educate and involve low-performing students in using the Adobe Creative Suite? We're at CS6 for AI/ID/PS, but I've been informed that my CTE rosters will be leveled to include some of these students.
This will be my first time working with high school students at this level, so while I have textbook education on this situation I'm woefully underprepared for when the kids' rubber meets my curriculum's road.

Thank you in advance for any advice from people who might have had wedding albums printed or similar cherished family albums.
