Idea for a Project That Will Open My Student's Horizons

Hi Folks!

I teach digital media in a tiny tech school in waaay north Vermont. I have students who have never been on an interstate, much less out of the State. I'm looking for ways to broaden their horizons and learn to work with student's from other places and cultures. I'm a bit stumped for an idea though. Anybody got any ideas out there and the band width to use Skype (or maybe Adobe Connect)?

  • Photoshop

    Editing and compositing for photos, web and mobile app designs, 3D artwork, videos, and more.

  • Animate

    Design interactive vector animations for multiple platforms.

  • Illustrator

    Create beautiful vector art and illustrations.

  • InDesign

    Craft elegant layouts at your desk or on the go.

​Hi Marcia -

Mircosoft has a robust set of offerings to leverage Skype to broaden horizons, including a catalog of guest speakers and virtual field trips. You can learn more about it here: Skype in the Classroom.

​Hi Marcia.

​Reach the World may a resource you could use. Perhaps you could then have what they are learning about geography and culture and turn that into digital media projects...

Hi Marcia,

I wonder if you could find another school in a different country that would be willing to do a cultural exchange? I'm sure you could find another educator here. Have students come up with a series of questions that would be the same for both groups? You could use Adobe Connect or Skype. Have students create a travel poster, commercial, or project that could promote the other country using products from Adobe Creative Cloud? I hope this makes sense?

Good Luck,

Mary Beth
