Howdy everyone! I wanted to see if anyone would be willing to share your experiences with teaching Web Tech and Video Game Design. I have been assigned to teach these two classes next year and I could use all the help I can get (best practices, resources, lesson plans, fun things. I want to teach them to be fun, enjoyable and most importantly try to get the students some sort of certifications by the end of the year. Thank you in advance for you any help you can give me. Thanks again!

Hey there! Here I am with a maybe not too easy question - the answer though might be easy when it is as I assume.Due to the fact that I'm teaching in a quite strict area of Germany concerning data protection and privacy issues it is NOT allowed to 'force' students to register on whatever platform. In my case it is supposed to be ADOBE Spark Video because I'd like them to create short videos and presentations on several topics.At present I have several iPads with a collective Adobe account. BUT if there will... Read More

Hello. I am a graphic design instructor and I am needing some advice. I am in need of ordering new computers for my class. I am still using Adobe Creative Suite 6 also. Computers:Do you highly suggest getting MACs? Do you feel my students would benefit most from working on a MAC platform? I am working on a MAC with Windows operating system (yes.....I know the irony here, believe me). I want them to be able to work on a MAC but I also only get a 50/50 grant help so half has to come out of my budget and act... Read More

I will be teaching a new graphic arts class at the high school level. We will be learning illustrator and Photoshop. I hope to develop small projects tailored toward printing t shirts and hats. I will be using the adobe illustrator and Photoshop classroom in a book but I also would like to teach students about the overall graphic art and design elements. What would be a good graphic arts textbook to supplement the classroom in a book series? Thanks

Hello! I teach After Effects, among other things, in the Visual Communications program at Madison Area Technical College. In an effort to keep my class up-to-date, what are some "real world" projects I should include? Currently, they get used to movement and keyframes by animating verbs, followed up with a logo, kinetic typography quote, banner ad, basic keying, and some lower thirds. The final project is to create a title sequence for a movie, TV show or video game. Planning on adding some cha... Read More

Hello everyone, I’m currently a web design/development student, I still have 1 more year until I graduate, however I would like to start gaining some work experience. Being that I’m on my 30’s and that most of my life I’ve worked doing administrative/clerical work, what would be the best advice anyone can give on how to find a job in web design/development with no experience? Does obtaining Adobe certifications help? Many thanks!

I use CS6 in my classroom and would like to upgrade to CC, however the cost is holding me back. The price quote I  was given was  $20 per student per month. That is more money than my school will pay. Why is CC so much more expensive than a classroom license of the past? Did anyone get a better price than $20 per student per month?
