I'll admit, lately I've been reading a lot of prepper/survival material online in various places. It's interesting stuff and so my first post will be about this. It's something that's always interested me. And I'd like to hear other people's views on this. There's a lot of discussion on the internet around "preparation" and being ready for some unforeseen disaster scenario. It is quite a popular subject with some communities claiming thousands if not hundreds of thousands of followers. The c... Read More

So, I need some input from teachers and lecturers around the world on a touchy subject here in South Africa...licensing. I come from a school that would be classified in the middle economic bracket. Our schools do not get licences like Adobe from our education department, we have to pay for them ourselves. We have purchased our licences as a package from a local business that serves as a mediator for Adobe. Our learners have grown so much in their Adobe products over the last 4 years but now I'm challeng... Read More

It is important to talk to my students and teach my students about how to become visually literate in this world of digital photography and manipulation. It starts with teaching them about what is ethical or not ethical. It is also about teaching them about what is fiction or fact when portraying digital images.  I discuss visually literacy and ethics by showing my students resources, such as the resources suggested on the Adobe Education Exchange. I then let them practice digital manipulation for the... Read More

Is it just me or are other members seeing what looks to be a whole lot of innappropriate content being loaded into the Trending Resources area at the moment? I'm seeing advertising pages completely unrelated to education in any way. They seem to have been created by individuals who have signed up on Sept 1st.

I am a little concerned that on the Animation course submission the first submission is displayed at the top of the page, resulting in week by week the latest submission being placed at the bottom of the page. I am sure this has resulted in some of us not receiving any or limited feedback for our submissions, surely the best option is to place the default setting on the newest submission listed at the top of the page ensure everyone has their chance of feedback. If we do not do something, it will result... Read More

I have just posted a multimedia lesson unit that involves spoken word. I would love to know if there are others who would like to work with me to develop other units like this one. You can find it here or if you search under spoken word.  One of my students won the animation category of the Aspire Awards last year doing this lesson. So give it a try and let me know if you plan to try it and you need help. Kathy

Camera Lenses Cleaning Tips

Digital camera contacts usually have to be cleaned out the same as other areas from the digital camera. Many people do not possess the correct understanding how to maintain the actual contacts thoroughly clean not to mention how you can thoroughly clean all of them. Contacts that are held thoroughly clean do not need to get cleaned out frequently. Like a issue associated with truth, the digital camera zoom lens must always end up being held thoroughly clean all the time simply because the requirement to hav... Read More

Never had this problem before subscription services but I can't find help anywhere. The only resolution that I have come up with is the old solve everything fix, "reimage!" I had a Creative Cloud subscription installed on a laptop. I removed the software "properly" by deactivating "properly" and then uninstalling "properly" before non-renewal. Several months later I had a problem. I had to restore to an earlier restore point. Now the "Creative Cloud" softwa... Read More

I know teachers want to do the right things. After over 30 years in the classroom I understand their context very well.  I include DC into my professional learning opportunities wherever I can and I have a hard time when I get a comment or response regarding copyright like this.... " I would do this if I had time.  After all its for education purposes I'm not making any money on it."  "Its easy to say that you don't have classes with 38 students for 6 blocks."   Re...

I have been learning about Echo Sign and I would like to hear about what others have done with it. Are you using it in your school to assist in the paperless idea? What are some barriers that you see in the implementation of electronics signatures.
