Designers of fashion, home furnishings and artisanal crafts can and do create cottage industries, which are critical to economic development in emerging markets. However, they are limited by internet access that is costly, unreliable and too narrow in bandwidth to accommodate much more than text. That makes online business incubators less effective than they should be. Which creative technologies, Adobe and otherwise, might get around these limitations?

What seems to be the biggest barrier your students are facing at present and how have you helped them overcome this? For example, we were able to get the licenses for the Adobe suite to our students to use at home but some of their computers are not suitable to run the suites. We have had to look at alternative ways of working for them.

As a graphic design teacher, I hold a CTE credential. It is important to include work based learning into our curriculum. I was wondering how other graphic design educators connect with industry leaders. Teaching has always been my only profession so I never started in the graphic design industry. Any suggestions would be welcome.

Happy New Year: I am in search of advice on what equipment is used in your Adobe classes. I currently teach the Adobe Visual and Video design classes. I only have Dell computers running the software, but I feel just teaching the student the software is an injustice to them. I will be starting the video design class and would especially like to know how many of you have a studio area/room to make videos, if so what lighting, cameras, etc. do you use? Thank you for any advice or comment you can provide.

I've had the great opportunity to introduce a class that has solely been devoted to animation. We've been working at it for three years and while I feel there are some great projects I'm doing, I know I can be doing more to teach students relevant content. I'm wondering...what are your best practices for teaching a CTE animation course? I've tried starting to work with Character Animator and Animate, but at this point I feel like the students are becoming more of the experts than I am.

We are looking for student software assistance and recognition, but it looks like the only current option is the AATC path. Is there another way to come alongside Adobe in our training efforts? Thank you!

I am fairly new to teaching middle school, recently moved up from elementary school to teach Business Education. I am having issues in particular with my 8th grade students with plagiarism. Mostly in my Adobe Illustrator class. They like doing tutorials which is fine while they are learning the tools and the techniques at the beginning of the year. However at this part of the year I feel like they should have enough working knowledge with the tools and techniques to start designing pieces on their own. The... Read More
