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.

At my institution I use a wide variety of digital tools to enhance learning practices and experiences. More the creative my team can be, the more impact we can have with our learners. Use use the following:
Video production and editing - Premiere Pro and Media Encoder
Visual Design for resources - InDesign, Illustrator, Spark, Acrobat, and Lightroom
Audio materials - Audition
Organisation - Bridge and Prelude
Typography - TypeKit
Let me know what you’re using, how and why?

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 am a Statistics instructor. I teach basic stats. In our course, we only work with one sample and we teach only z -test and t-test.
I would like to see if any of you are teaching basic stats and willing to share their ideas of teaching practices to help students understand better. I am always struggling to keep my students engaged and motivated.
Any help is appreciated.

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.

century digital literacies and skills in Australian educational programs poses
an important consideration for curriculum policymakers. How are STEAM (Science,
Technology, Engineering, Arts & Mathematics) integrated approaches being embedded in Australian school curriculums today?

Hi! I work for a vocational school that is beginning to offer professional online Adobe training. 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?

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.

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.

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
