I have been approached by my administrator to consider replacing the Mac computers in my classroom with PC. The Technology department does not like maintaining the Mac lab. 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.

I am a Master Teacher at an innovative high school in Texas and am in the process of working with the school district to change our Digital Media pathway to a UI/UX Design pathway.

Hello, I am a high school graphic communications and Print instructor. My district will be getting new computers for my classroom this summer. They want to move away from Mac and purchase Microsoft Surface. Currently I am working with IMacs and IPads. I do not mind using the the Surface Pro and Surface Studios. 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?

I am looking for software that will allow me to create flipbooks that can be embedded into Weebly. My middle school students will be writing beginning reader books for our elementary students. This is a part of a lesson on design, layout and audience. It is also part of my "pay it forward" lesson where we talk about using technology to do good for others. I have tried several free and low cost products, but frankly they are not very good. I either am either forced to store them on the compani... Read More

Has anyone had any experience with using the licensing for the Adobe Suite for installing in a lab only? We are looking at the $24.99 pricing for each licensing for the district. Did any other computer/business teachers have trouble implementing this within their district?

Hi Folks! I teach high school digital media and I have a student who is preparing for his final portfolio presentation. He wants to create an Avatar on Character Animator to present his portfolio so that my student can sit concealed from the audience and project onto the white board remotely using an Apple TV. Is there anyway he can project a live Avatar-type character over a Spark, Behance or Adobe Pf digital portfolio? How about an animated PDF? Any ideas for how we can do this?
