Adobe Digital Careers Activities

Create your own custom curriculum with flexible activities

The Adobe Digital Careers activities align to the key design, research and communication, project management and technical skills that are required for students to be successful in their future digital career. Activities contain an instructor guide (with learning objectives, step-by-step teaching instructions, assessment rubric, and details on alignment to the Adobe Certified Associate exams), student technical guides or worksheets and demo assets. Each activity will take between 1-3 hours to teach, depending on the activity and the level of your students.

Activities can be adapted, used on their own, or combined in a sequence to create projects and curriculums. The Adobe Digital Careers curriculums (Visual Design, Digital Design, Digital Video, and Interactive Design) are examples of sequences of these activities put together to form a series of projects. You can create similar pathways of this content to customize it for your use case. However you use this content please let us know how it works for you.
