Hey Adobe educators, it has become increasingly apparent to me that whilst software training is obviously essential the importance of being organised and structured in your projects is often overlooked. I Always try to impress on staff and students the benefits of organising your projects correctly (for your own workflow and for collaborating with others) and was wondering if anyone out there has produced any specific training or resources addressing this issue? ** UPDATE ** In support of this topic I ha...

I teach a Commercial Photography course to high school juniors and seniors. While I'm really good at giving informal feedback when I'm walking around the classroom and looking over students' shoulders, I'm always looking for ways to give more in depth feedback on digital files without printing out a sheet of paper and writing on it. I've tried all sorts of stuff including making Notes in Photoshop, editing the metadata of photos, turning photos into PDFs and commenting on the side. So far, I have yet to fin... Read More

I am a high school Graphic Arts Instructor. We have purchased creative cloud for the classroom and I was looking for feedback on setting up creative cloud on each computer. Last year was our first year to use the program and I ran into some difficulty. Students were initially inputting setup info with false email accounts. It would then lock out anyone using that computer until I could apply a fix. I had to run a clean up tool to erase the setup info and start again. Pain in ___. My Mac lab has internet a... Read More

I love the idea of students making a storyboard, but it seems like a daunting task to incorporate in my lessons. Does anyone have experience using a storyboard project? How long did it take and what kind of reaction did you get from your students?

Would anyone point me to some examples... Read More

I'm using Photoshop Mix and Photoshop Sketch with several classes in school, is it possibile to organise their work in the cloud so each class has a folder? At the moment the ipads are all logged into one Adobe account, the problem is the children become easily distracted when the app launches and they see everyone elses work. In the mobile creations section in the cloud I can only find archive or copy, I cant find any option to create subfolders, is there a way? Any advice welcome on efficient meth... Read More

Hi, I am about to change schools and would appreciate advice on best practice to install Photoshop across a large student body. At my old school we had a Macbook program and were able to use a Casper Self Service app to help students download and install software licenced to the school. My new school is a Bring Your Own Device arrangement with students able to bring either a windows or mac, and no self-service app in use. Has anyone been in this situation and been able to provide a seamless procedure fo... Read More
