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?

After participants completed the Up and Running with Adobe Muse CC workshop and created their first project, they were asked to reflect and list ways they could use Muse in their classroom. How might you incorporate website creation with Muse into a student learning experience? This discussion post is part of the Adobe Education Exchange Professional Development Workshop Up and Running with Adobe Muse CC.

I am interested in how other primary/elementary schools have used Adobe Slate in their lessons.  I currently used it to represent a story but what other ways have you used the tool.  I would like to share the tools more effectively with my staff and to do so I need to have a broader suggestion base for them! Any help greatly appreciated! Cheers Jane
