I am using the Adobe Visual Design: Foundations of Design and Print Production curriculum and lesson plans for my classroom. I am a first time teacher and am working through the activities and projects with my class. Many of my students are first year design students and I'm wondering if anyone else is using this curriculum and if you could share examples of some of the projects - Collages and Photography, Logos, Business Cards, etc. It may be helpful for the students to see what they are working towar...

When we do a course I think that it would be useful if we could have an official link to LinkedIn. When you finish a course with Lynda.com there is a certificate and page that enables it to be linked to from LinkedIn, could we not have the same for the Adobe courses? What do people think?

I am teaching PS, ILL, and ID. My students are using Classroom in a Book and our district wants the students to take a test for each chapter. However, I am not seeing any testing materials (except for 3-4 review questions and answers) at the end of a chapter. Has anyone had to make up tests on PS, ILL or ID for their classrooms? Any help on this would be appreciated.

Critique My Rubric

Here's a rubric that we used for a Photoshop Self Portrait project. Some of the terminology may look odd because it's in context of the project assignment. The 4 point scale is a standard in our art department (it basically works like GPA, 4=A, 3=B, etc.) I would love for some folks out there to critique. I've used it for many years. It's designed to really try to cover everything that might come up.... but it's been a long time since I've gotten new eyes on it. I've also attached an example from the... Read More

We use rubrics when evaluating artwork made in our high school classes. We generally assess creativity, craftsmanship, technical requirements, communication, visual composition. We have very well spelled out definitions for each of these rubric areas. What do you think should be included on a rubric assessing artwork? What definitions would you expect to see for each of these rubric areas?

Adobe Captivate 7 Common Core Mathematics Collaboration

I would like to find other instructors or course designers working with Captivate 7 that would like to collaborate on the creation of a freely shared collection of math resources aligned to Common Core. I am finding way to many math text providers that say calmly that their material is Common Core and the are not aligned. The high stakes nature of Common Core for teachers and school districts means that the buck will stop with them instead of publishers. It would be nice if instructors could have a collecti...

Guiding questions help students think about their own learning and promote positive and constructive feedback, strongly influencing students' opinions of their own creativity (Beghetto, 2006).  For example: What path did you take to come up with this idea? What alternatives did you consider earlier on? What are some of the guiding questions you use with students? This discussion post is part of the Adobe Education Exchange Professional Development...

Adobe Education Leader, Judy Derkin, guided me recently to Adobe Form Central.  She uses it to collect student photography work, quizzes, and written work.  This product initially looks like it is made for business and office work; however, this is a true Gem for the educator.  I recently set up my own account and I can now collect a wide range of digital files, create surveys, tests, and writing prompts quickly and efficiently.  If your school is using tablets or laptops, get yourself a...

Using Adobe Acrobat for Assessment?

Do teachers in your school make use of Adobe Acrobat in assessing student work? I've found very few knew they even had Adobe Acrobat Pro on their computers, or confuse it with Adobe Reader. There are some pretty great features wrapped into Acrobat Pro...like the ability to embed or stream video, create electronic forms, comment on video, collect feedback, etc. Just wondering how others get the word out...or why they aren't getting the word out? Seems like a no-brainer...

Soft skills assessment

Recently I got to sit with a company that does animation and digital effects for the film industry. What was interesting was that the company stresses so many "soft" skills over the ability to use software products. Topics such as planning, collaboration, story boarding, responding to critiques, and completing projects on time and to standards can be difficult to assess, but are critical to future success. So, how do you assess these skills?
