Applying Design Thinking in Education to Fight Extremism

Posted on Dec 1, 2015 by Rafiq Elmansy Last Activity on Dec 1, 2015

Death tolls rise as security solutions fail to stop radical ideologies from migrating through new media and social networks. In the design and innovation domain, our role is to solve problems through investigating the causes of the final effect, and to work together to develop proper strategies that avoid the problem in the future. The question is, can we, as designers, contribute to preventing extreme ideas and the voice of hate spreading among our children?

Adobe Voice - Logo Design Process

Posted on Nov 30, 2015 by Maureen Clark Last Activity on Dec 1, 2015

Students used Adobe Voice to explain the design process and development of their logo idea for the 80th year celebration of Marketing Education.  However, this sample is based on graphic design, any subject could use these Adobe Voice examples in their classroom. When looking for resources on how I could incorporate Adobe Voice into my lessons, I had a hard time find examples that really applied to my classroom.   So this lesson is not on how to design a logo, but more on how I applied using Adobe Voice to the project.  My students narrowed down the 16+ sketches for the logo to three ideas that they wanted to explore further. The students developed those 3 ideas to 3 final products that we emailed to the client. The client went through all the logos and picked one logo from each student that would be presented to the client "live" in the classroom at a later date.   However, I still want to hear about the other 2 ideas that they had developed. This is where Adobe Voice played... Read More

Adobe iPad Apps - Increase your creativity with Adobe iPad Apps

Posted on Sep 15, 2015 by Gary Crossey Last Activity on Sep 19, 2015

The Adobe iPad Apps class is a showcase of the different Adobe Apps that are available. Due to recent changes in the Adobe App choices (Adobe Ideas dropped from the Creative Cloud). The Class includes what apps are available in the app store - rather than a focus on one of the apps.  The workshop does not aim to teach the participants how to use the apps, the objective is to showcase the apps. And for the participants to have a better expectation of what each app function is (video, audio, presentation, drawing, planning etc.) Most people are slow to adapt using the iPad in any meaningful way. Most people want to know how they can improve their workflow - not make it more difficult by using inferior versions of apps they have on their desktop. This workshop objective is to help user know when they can use iPad apps to reach different goals.  Visit the Class Resource page for sample of work created with Adobe iPad Apps that you can use in your class.  The class feedback for...

Posted on Aug 28, 2015 by Wendy Sandstrom Last Activity on Sep 14, 2015

This is a professional development plan created for the Adobe Train the Trainer course. It gives participants an overview of the CC and how the apps work together. It is a two session offering, with the first session detailed by this plan and the second would be developed based on the first offering and revisions afterwards. Each session is planned for an hour but could be adjusted to fit other time frames. Each participant creates an action plan during the course. This plan will give them a relevant reason to be in the session (if they did not already have one identified) and also provides written documentation for reference after the session concludes.

Table Tent Template

Posted on Aug 4, 2015 by Tyler Dockery Last Activity on Aug 4, 2015

When presenting to a group, it is often difficult to remember names and make connections with participants. Sometimes, it is helpful for users to remember their motivation for coming, and how they feel at the end may be different from how they felt at the beginning. Sometimes, they need to ask you a question and forget your contact info, and sometimes they want additional help but don't want to ask in front of their co-workers. I have created this table tent template for presenters. It has a large area for names, contact information etc. Folded in half lengthwise, it creates a great presenting helper keeping peoples name and department at your fingertips. These .INDD and .AI files can be customized to you and your presentation, and only uses text and shapes for easy editing. Please enjoy! Tyler Dockery
