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?

I would love to know more about what is out there and what teachers are using. I know that it might be too expensive right now to use AR, but I hope that there is something that can help the students get on board with using technology to learn. Are there an Adobe tools that can help with this process?

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?

Any thoughts on the 2016 Macbook Pro being stripped down?

I am ready to buy a new macbook pro and went to configure it while browsing on line. I realized there is no option of 32gb of ram. That seems really short sided and almost like a planned obsolescence. I am a huge fan of Macs but this lack of upgrade options and a lack of ports and options has me looking at PC's like Lenovo P50 and Dell XPS 15. Curious what other Creative professionals and Graphics Instructors think/feel about this.

As a Digital Campus leader for my high school, I have given many PD workshops about Adobe products. However, I think the teachers are frustrated with the limitations of software avalable to them. I've demonstrated Adobe Spark, and they all seem to love the versitility of that application. I feel I may be missing something. What other Adobe applications do you like to share with teachers that will engage their students and require little to no effort on the teachers part? My teachers seem so overwhelmed... Read More

Just a quick note to let you know that we've updated Adobe Spark Video with support for, yep, video. This has been the #1 requested Spark Video enhancement, and we're excited to see what students (and their teachers) do with this new functionality. Here is the announcement. As always, feedback is welcome and appreciated. --- Ben Forta
