Can I flip alone?

I was just wondering if anyone has any experience being the driving force behind flipped learning in their school. I would like implement a flipped learning approach in my classes to allow me more practical time in class (I'm a Media teacher) but I worry about being the only person implementing flipped learning. Given the different types of demands it places on students and how they use their time at home, is it something you can do by yourself? I think it is a great approach and I totally see it working...

I have to give my students the Dreamweaver certification test in April. There are a ton of different resources. Can anyone suggest a study guide that is appropriate for high school students? I have Dreamweaver CC. I found the one below but the first lesson is for CS6 even though it says CC. It will not work in CC.  http://edex.adobe.com/syllabus/561c8d0-/ Thank you!!

Hello, everyone! I have just been hired (literally) by my wonderful new school. It's my first year teaching and I'm charged with creating an introductory digital media class. I'll have two sections this semester and two next. I have already created my course description and am working on the curriculum. As it's my first year teaching, and we start school Monday, I'm trying to quickly put together at least a skeleton of a course which I can fill out throughout the year.  The first semester, I'd like t...

I enjoyed an art education. During those years I only got a basic understanding of Adobe applications, the focus was always more on the creative aspect. Once I had finished school and started working as a graphic designer I soon found out that a great amount of technical knowledge about the printing process and how to output documents that can be successfully printed is required as wel. Should art schools invest more time in software training or is this something that should be reserved for another field o... Read More

Adobe Stock- ideas for using

I'm interested in seeing how people envisage using Adobe Stock. I realise that there is a cost for using the images- either one of price or a subscription, but the images can be used without paying if you have a watermark on it. This means that someone could create a piece of work using Adobe Stock artwork and then pay to remove the watermark when needed. It strikes me that this would be an interesting potential tool in the classroom. How would you envisage using it in your classes?

It has been obvious over the past year or so that there is a disadvantage having apps that are only available on iOS. This is in part due to the small size of the development teams involved (you can't risk everything developing on all platforms). There is now a beta program for testing Adobe Apps on Android devices. You can join here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/115649485021140879434 I'm an Apple user myself, but strongly believe that Adobe apps should appear on all platforms, so if you... Read More
