Since the start of digital art and the creation of artwork using computers, artists have faced problems in identifying their work as forms of art. While old schools of thought separated it from human-made art, which subsequently removed it from other art categories, the form also did not provide the artist with the capabilities and the pleasure they enjoyed by drawing on paper or canvas.

I’m constantly seeking ways for my students to use their computer literacy skills that will incorporate other subjects too. Responding to literature, science math or history are definitely ways to integrate core curriculum into my lessons. I have done the following in my classroom:
Student created video of math conceptStudent created explainer on the idea of DNAStudent created video explaining ideas learned in a unit, using graphics and text to demonstrate their understanding.Claymation video on the Human Reproductive System
These are only a few ways I’ve supported students creative process in their learning; however, this lesson will enable students to recreate a bookcover of their favorite book or one they are reading for literature.
Students will include in their book cover redesign:
Summary of AuthorStory SummaryDiscuss the theme, plot and hint to the climaxPictureWhat you enjoyed/didn’t like about the book

Students will use Digital Images or Photos they take to come up with a story idea. From there they will get into groups and using brainstorming, creative thought and visualizing they will create the beginning to their own stories. Students will each use a computer or laptop and after a period of time rotate. Students will rotate and add to their neighbors story in their group. After 3 to 4 rotations, the students will place an ending onto their story and begin to find or illustrate images to add to their story, bringing it to life.
Students will use Adobe products to illustrate, sketch images and to finalize their stories. Students will end by producing a Digital Story using Adobe Voice.

A common core aligned geometry lesson curated and altered to support 21st century learning skills. Students will learn first about calculating the surface area of a polyhedra (they should have been exposed to this concept prior to this lesson but not completely necessary) and then draw and create a "net." Students will identify using key vocabulary, the necessary parts of the polyhedra and manipulate several virtual nets and shapes. Students will work in teams to create several paper versions of geometric shapes and finally after watching tutorials, make one in the Adobe product of their choice. Students will finalize their lesson and display their understanding of polyhedra in a final written essay, which should include a picture of their finished polyhedra.

One of the unique features of this course is that we're building the modules around existingOpen Educational Resources. Instead of creating our own lectures videos, we're curating the best from the open web, and we'd like to invite you to help us by contributing your discoveries to our growing list. We ask that anything you add be tagged with the appropriate module/week number (see below) as well as any relevant descriptive terms.

I am such a fan of Sunni Brown and a supporter of The Doodle Revolution. In education, I have found that those that are visual learners can get lost. This workshop and bootcamp supports those that are visual learners.

Creative Cloud Classroom with Mike McHugh produced by Adobe TV.
This is a three part illustration project. In the 1st lesson we begin with a photograph and trace that photograph in Adobe Ideas on the iPad. In part two we capture a color pallette using Adobe Kuler and sync it using Creative Cloud. Then finally in the third lesson we open our Adobe Ideas project in Illustrator CC and using our color swatches finish a nice botanical illustration.
