My school is transitioning to mastery based grading. My district still requires letter grades at the end of the course. I'm working on a badging system for my graphic design classes next year. Anyone out there use a badging system in their classes? One of my main concerns is converting the badges to a final letter grade. Help!

In the past, Graphic Design programs in our county have made Lynda.com available to students to supplement classroom instruction. Since LinkedIn has purchased Lynda, this it is no longer available for students under 18. Are there any other similar products out there that are "student friendly"?

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

It's time I learn about video file formats. When you export videos in Premiere, there's like a zillion options for formats. I have been told by many people to ALWAYS use H.264. Why? What is H.264 anyways and why is it the best? What are all the other file types? I haven't had a student question me yet about H.264, but I know someone will someday and I need to know the answer.

Premiere Pro vs Final Cut Pro ...

As a past user of Final Cut Pro, I have moved over to Premiere Pro after the changes Apple made to FCP. I'm now looking for advice whether to continue with Premiere and invest my efforts and resources. What editing software is considered 'industry'? I know 'Deadpool' was edited using Premier Pro. Do you think this is a trend? Is PP the new FCP? I don't want this to be an Apple vs PC discussion ... more wanted to know if FCP is still relevant. And/or is Premiere taking it's spot?

I have spent years using YouTube as an educational resource, in fact it was my ability to use YouTube as a learning source that landed me my first Digital Media teaching job. The teacher I was replacing seemed to like my comment when I told him that if I didn't know the software I could learn it in a few weeks using YouTube and I could teach my students to do the same. Since then, I have used YouTube as a direct learning/teaching source. My plan is to some day give back to the community and begin creatin... Read More

I've been extremely involved with setting up PBL Charter/Private School learning platforms over the past 15+ years and find that it is a difficult task to implement change in the classroom. My main concern is how leadership and faculty work together to start the process of introducing PBL into traditional learning environments. Please share out any insights you might have and I am looking forward to learning from your professional experiences as innovative educators.

At my institution, IT has control over everything. We can’t use any program or application in the classroom that isn’t approved by the IT director. Spark Page for journals is something I want to do, but with most things, they say no. Isn’t this an issue of academic freedom? I wonder if just implementing learning journals would get me in trouble with IT. I teach college and it feels s little like they are babysitting us. Any suggestions? I’d love to share more if you have specific q... Read More

Our school will be implementing a new maker space in the fall of 2018. What I would like to know is what people recommend having in their space, the essentials (hardware, software, consumables, etc...). My intent is to incorporate Adobe Creative Cloud apps into our process and to record and document everything we create in the space. If anyone has suggestions or links to their maker space, I'd love to learn more about how you go about implementing it in your institution.
