Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well. Recently I started designing learning materials with a focus on storytelling. Most of these materials are created in MS Word or PowerPoint and converted into PDFs. I am seeking insight on if anyone has experienced accessibility issues using Adobe Acrobat Pro, particularly as it pertains to alt images. Many thanks for sharing your experiences or advice. ~ Charlotte

There are numerous digital tools available today which offer opportunities for teachers to collaborate with the other teachers. Do you think that digital tools make us more or less productive at work?

I am curious how other educators tackle use (or inspiration) of others work in their students projects. How do your students provide evidence of their work being original?

Hi Everyone, this is really a help query. I note that you can have Adobe Creative Cloud on two computers, but only use one at a time, understandably. On accessing my plans I am showing as having 3 computers connected (but only have 2). I have removed my work laptop as it is not as good as my personal laptop and I do most my lesson planning at home. That leaves 2 laptops, but this really is the same laptop with different dates: Asus on WINDOWS_64Asus on Windows I am tempted to deactivate the older da... Read More

As a Designer, I Refuse to Call People ‘Users’ Interesting Article that i would like to share and ask what you think about user and user friendly. I did not think about it and this way is one that gives an other sight on how to design for others. From the article by Adam Lefton Saying “user” strips a person of their circumstances… it eliminates context and reduces people to a single act.... Without the U-words, I can start the hard work of redefining how I think about des... Read More

In today's environment of rapid information at our finger tips, google images & media, social media sharing, memes, gifs and so forth, it can be a challenge for students to realize the importance of responsible use. I am also a firm believer that Digital Citizenship and Responsibility must be taught in context rather than as a separate subject in order to connect and have a lasting impact with students. How are educators integrating responsible use of digital content into "real world" creat... Read More

How do I let my students under 13 use Spark? Your documentation says to use a teacher account but is there a class account that can be made?

I'm excited to use Spark, only to find that my students in grade 45 cannot access or create their own account because they are younger than 13. Your documentation says that we can use a teacher account but do you suggest we share our teacher account? That would not be possible in our school board because we use google and it would be impossible to let my students use my account. Is there not a way to make a class account? We can change the age but those who tried before we knew the age of 13 are now locked... Read More

I want to start off by saying I love using Adobe Software! But my small arts high school paid $8,500 for a 250 seat perpetual site license for Adobe CS5.5, we used it for three years, and 45 students earned their Adobe Associate Certification, and as a result most are studying digital art in college, or working in the fields of graphic design and photography. Now, Adobe wants $11,800 every year for 60 seats, so over three years, it'll costs more than our iMac computer lab! I don't know what to do! Adobe m... Read More
