I was recently looking for a device that I could assign different shortcuts and tools to in order to make my workflow faster. For photoshop I have been using Adobe Nav on my iPad but then I can across the Elgato Stream Deck. It lets you assign shortcuts and functions to different buttons and have different layers and a variety of options. Just thought I would share the link to the device and a youtube video from a guy that uses it with the Adobe Suite. https://www.elgato.com/en/gaming/stream-deck https:/... Read More

For the past several years I have been using Muse in my introductory graphic design classes to introduce the students to basic design concepts for the web, such as designing with flexible borders and user experience. In two class days students are able to create a functioning web site, improve it, and have it critiqued. This is a very good use of their time, and some have taken it farther after the course. Now with Muse on the chopping block, I am looking for alternatives. So far I have only been able to fi... Read More

I would like to get some feedback regarding current industry standards. What are you using in your classroom/business? Is Mac still the goto graphics platform? Thanks for your input.

Hello, I am a high school graphic communications and Print instructor. My district will be getting new computers for my classroom this summer.

So before I push for what my students need, what is the industry and higher education leaning towards? Is it still very Mac influenced or is a new trend starting? I would like my students working o... Read More

Fellow AELs! What do you show to your students to inspire them? One of my favorite examples of After Effects is a music video for Ramona Falls by Luke Slater: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ga0ohgZFVqc I also really enjoy the work of Jarret Heather, who did a fun kinetic type video to a song about shop vacs (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4sOfO8Ei1g), which lead to him doing the excellent/educational Word Crimes video for Weird Al: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Gv0H-vPoDc Also, a website I freq...

I am hoping to spark interest and discussion both in Technology Trends but also in Teaching & Learning about getting old exercises (pencil and paper, folding, judging forms and space, etc.) into digital worlds. Not every student has a tablet, but every student has a phone and a finger. The tools are there, but I am looking to develop a few specific lessons. Is anyone doing anything along these lines?
