Hello everyone! I've been leading workshops on integrating technology where I would usually present the SAMR and TPACK model in a traditional (nearly death by PowerPoint) way with a little hands on activities at the end. My question is, how can I also do this workshop in a creative way where participants learn SAMR and TPACK creatively? Many thanks in advance!

I am teaching a service-learning course and deal with experiential learning. Most of my work deals with facilitating interactions between the community and students. One aspect of this is preparing digital content. The material must be able to simulate the experience of going to a community and elicit reflections as well as feasible project proposals that focus on an intervention for specific community needs. Has anyone used any Adobe product to this effect? Previous suggestions to me included the use of... Read More

Hello everyone! I am a pre-service secondary English teacher preparing for my first year in the classroom. I have been exploring the many tools that Adobe has to offer educators, and I am curious as to how Adobe Spark performs in the classroom. I have seen some instances of it being used for presentations instead of more common tools, such as PowerPoint or Prezi. I’m interested in hearing your opinions and experiences on using Adobe Spark in your own classrooms. Have your students enjoyed using Adobe... Read More

Character Animator puppet

I have built a puppet from scratch using Photoshop. I then imported it into Character Animator. I previously have been able to adapt and modify puppets from Start templates. I followed the folder creation and naming conventions as best I could, but I am not sure exactly where everything should go. (I referred to the Blank Face and Chloe puppets as models.) However, I get hung up on behaviors. Specifically, my arms get disconnected from the shoulders when I drag the hands. Any guidance on how best to use fi... Read More

I am working on creating my own original puppet in Character Animator. I am enrolled in the Adobe EdEx course. I have watched a number of video tutorials and read Help pages. I have been successful in adapting existing templates. However, here is my problem with the puppet built from scratch using Photoshop: I can't figure out how to pin the shoulder to the arm. When I drag the hand, the arm goes wildly flinging about. How do I fix it? Is there a best practice for what you put in the Head, Body and Backg... Read More

Being relatively new to the Adobe Education Exchange I have discovered that the Adobe Spark page seems limited in its abilities. Knowing that we need to share the content developed within these courses I wish there were more visually rich ways to present the work. Further, I wish there were alternatives to the layout and/or options for different pages rather than one running site. I am curious to know if anyone out there has any suggestions or alternative approaches to using this platform that might make... Read More

What is more important, knowledge or accreditation?

As educators, especially at elementary or primary level, you can be expected to teach new subjects that you know little or nothing about. Most teachers do what they can to learn about the topic in order to teach what they know. There are opportunities to upskill and develop yourself further, so what is the best thing to do: Find the information that you need and know it, or get some sort of accreditation? In both cases, you know the information and it could be debated as to who knows more. The web makes... Read More

I am interested in how people balance their professional and personal lives on social media, as no doubt these will overlap. I appreciate that our ethical commitments mean that we are true to our values across our personal-professional life spectrum, but social media can pose some complications. Any thoughts?

I'm curious what everyone's experiences are with using a flipped classroom model when teaching design. If it's working for you, what are the apps/resources that help your workflow? If it doesn't work for you, why not? And if you don't want to try it, what's the barrier or complication? I've flipped my classroom at various points throughout the last 5 years, and have started again this week with a new system. Thanks for sharing your practices with me as I continue to move forward!

Which #Hashtags do you use when you are talking about the Adobe Education Exchange? is it #AdobeEdex or simply #EDEX? I would really like to know what way you tag your tweets and posts as well on Adobe Spark pages and behance and Portfolio sites. This will help newbies ( and not so newbies) wanting to publicise their achievements within the community to a wider global audience. Place your fav #Hashtags in the replies.

I already have an AE animation, but now I want to have the camera "zoom in" on the upper right quadrant of my screen during the duration of my 4 second animation. Is there a better way to approach this effect, other than, making all my layers 3D, and pulling all the Z axes in closer to the camera as time progresses?

I am using a Ricoh Theta 360 camera. When viewing the playback footage in Premier or After effects I get a black band/ gap where the ends of the frame are wrapped. What is the setting I need to change to get this to become seamless?

Hello! Having spent the last year or so learning how to build accessibility (screen reader functionality) into interactive media using Adobe Captivate, I'm now wondering if there is anyone else out there who has been doing similar work/research? I've learned a lot so far, but I'm just hoping there are others on AEE who can bounce ideas around. Poojas how-to videos have been helpful, but I'm looking to do more advanced gamification specifically for education purposes. I would love to see examples of what... Read More
