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

By now you've probably noticed more people using Adobe apps in everyday places such as in schools and at the office. Those people have an understanding of the functions of a laptop, Mac or a tablet, but what if they didn't? I'm interested in creating a resource using indesign on how to use some of the components of a computer e.g. A mouse/keyboard and it got me thinking about going back to basics.  How do use Adobe products to teach our students how to use the simple functions of a co...

I have been using the online lessons from Common Sense Media for grade 6, 7, 8 with the topics cyberbullying, copyright, scams and digital citizenship amongst other activities. My students were really engaged at the start of each lesson but as they were progressing there was a lot of repetition in the structure of the activities in Common Sense Media. Has anyone experienced the same issue? I think they should provide with more creative activities linking them with media projects such as photoshop, illu... Read More

I'll admit, lately I've been reading a lot of prepper/survival material online in various places. It's interesting stuff and so my first post will be about this. It's something that's always interested me. And I'd like to hear other people's views on this. There's a lot of discussion on the internet around "preparation" and being ready for some unforeseen disaster scenario. It is quite a popular subject with some communities claiming thousands if not hundreds of thousands of followers. The c... Read More

So, I need some input from teachers and lecturers around the world on a touchy subject here in South Africa...licensing. I come from a school that would be classified in the middle economic bracket. Our schools do not get licences like Adobe from our education department, we have to pay for them ourselves. We have purchased our licences as a package from a local business that serves as a mediator for Adobe. Our learners have grown so much in their Adobe products over the last 4 years but now I'm challeng... Read More

It is important to talk to my students and teach my students about how to become visually literate in this world of digital photography and manipulation. It starts with teaching them about what is ethical or not ethical. It is also about teaching them about what is fiction or fact when portraying digital images.  I discuss visually literacy and ethics by showing my students resources, such as the resources suggested on the Adobe Education Exchange. I then let them practice digital manipulation for the... Read More

Is it just me or are other members seeing what looks to be a whole lot of innappropriate content being loaded into the Trending Resources area at the moment? I'm seeing advertising pages completely unrelated to education in any way. They seem to have been created by individuals who have signed up on Sept 1st.

I am a little concerned that on the Animation course submission the first submission is displayed at the top of the page, resulting in week by week the latest submission being placed at the bottom of the page. I am sure this has resulted in some of us not receiving any or limited feedback for our submissions, surely the best option is to place the default setting on the newest submission listed at the top of the page ensure everyone has their chance of feedback. If we do not do something, it will result... Read More

I have just posted a multimedia lesson unit that involves spoken word. I would love to know if there are others who would like to work with me to develop other units like this one. You can find it here or if you search under spoken word.  One of my students won the animation category of the Aspire Awards last year doing this lesson. So give it a try and let me know if you plan to try it and you need help. Kathy
