Looking for ideas on how Art & Photography teachers have their students present their work digitally as a portfolio. I'm looking for something easy to present in class and share with each other. Spark is my first thought. I am considering Portfolio, however, these students are 15 and I don't really want them getting bogged down into the social side of it.

This YouTube video will give you a taste of Game On, a WordPress plugin that enables teachers to deliver content utilizing game mechanics. Since I need to make more videos, I thought it might be helpful to address questions others might have. Any questions?

The learning of filming or videography has to be fun to have students genuinely engaged. Secondly, the process has to ignite the powerful innate spark of curiosity students have while coming of age in a socially conscious, responsible and healthy way. Thirdly, an educational filming endeavor should strive to be broadcasted live, meaning the filming process in real-time is intentionally designed to emotionally, technically, and academically challenge students; in other words, students learn by making mistake...

Hi, This is my first year publishing Open Educational Resources using Creative Commons licenses. One thing I've learned is that placing them on any site that requires a login (even if I must login, but users do not) restricts their level of openness. For example, I moved my Image, Video and Audio resources to OER Commons, but every time I add a new resource it is taken offline until someone at OER Commons approves the update (which might take days): https://www.oercommons.org/authoring/26504-image-v......

With all the technology updates and the use of technological language what do we mean when we say VR? are we talking about immersive environments that we can interact with or an experiential approach where we can experience a sense of a location or scene for 360 video and lead is into immersive video. When you talk about VR what comes to mind? How many realities are there?

I was watching a video on what is new in Indesign March 2018 update. I was really interested in how to create single page PDF files from a multiple page document. It was pretty simple until I went to try it with one of my documents. The option to create single pages was not where it showed in the video. I have updated my CC apps to the latest versions. What is suggested?

Is anyone using XD to create online, mobile friendly courses? It seems to have the capacity to create great, visually appealing, easy to use education, but would need to create a SCORM wrapper for it if we wanted to upload it or track it in our LMS.

I would like to know how others are best spreading the word about using a range of Adobe products in the classroom? So many staff have no idea about the capabilities across a range of subject areas and just think it is something only to be used by Design/Tech teachers.

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 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.
