The InDesign and Photoshop assignments I design and implement for my year 9 students are done in groups. I am finding it difficult to assess individual students' knowledge since in every group there are leaders and followers. Although group work maximizes their learning is there a best way to assess the students' knowledge? Do students learn better if they work independently?

I understand that one of the ways to motivate younger students is to bring technology into the classroom. As a teacher of photography and image editing I would like to be able to sensitize fellow professors from other areas to work as a team and use Photography, Photoshop or Lightroom as tools that students use to create content for other areas and subjects, such as Area of Humanities, History, Geography, Philosophy, Sociology or Biology, Mathematics, etc. Not having in-depth knowledge in these areas are mi...

1. I am wondering how my middle school students can share their finished Adobe Animate projects in one place. I would like for students to be able to post and view work, but it also would be nice if they could rate or comment on each other's work. My tech coordinator recommended padlet, and it works well for animated .gifs with no sound but if the project has sound and we export it as a .mov, padlet says the file is too large. Padlet also will not support .swf files. 2. We are using Google Sites for thei... Read More

After 26 years, I will be retiring from a high school Graphic Arts teaching position at the end of the current school year. I would like to continue to offer my expertise to teachers creating materials for classroom use. Currently, my school district provides me with access to the Adobe Creative Suite. However, when I retire, I must personally pay for a subscription. Since my plan is to provide free services to teachers, how can I afford to personally subscribe to Adobe Creative Suite if I might only us... Read More

I teach three sections of an introductory class (two brick-and-mortar, one online) dealing with communication using graphics. I've had a bit of training on how to help students learn, develop, and practice skills that are most sought by employers: Soft Skills or aka Employability or Life Skills. I do this with a team project or two all sections, but the online class is difficult to do as many of the students seemed disconnected. My job is to connect them with discussion forums, group emails, online webinar... Read More

I have students in my ICT classes that would like to talk with other high schoolers around the world. I am wondering if there are other teachers who might have classes interested in having a virtual pen pal. The students can connect via Google hangouts. We all need to follow safe protocols, ie, permissions from administration and parents, but I know it can be done. Please connect with me if you are interested. Reaching out via Adobe Education Exchange seemed like a great place to start this venture beca... Read More

Greetings,  A few weeks back I decided to create a tool for creative professionals and learners alike, and in doing so, I came up with the term/hashtag #howdoyoucreate?  I think this is an interesting subject and question because I think that it is important for an individual to define their creative process. We as creatives can be all over the place, and having a defined process could mean an improved workflow, a path to development, and a renewed way to approach your projects.  So... Read More

Hello, I purchased and have been using Photoshop Elements 11 in for Mac in 2013 and have been using it ever since. The app is missing from my computer and I was trying to download it. But each time I try to download PSE 11, I get PSE 14, which obviously doesn't recognize Serial Number. Could anyone help me download PSE 11? I'd much appreciate it. Mustafa

If you are planning to install a free trial of any of the adobe tools be aware that it can disrupt any functional adobe software on your computer. I tried it once on a Windows machine. I currently have the Adobe Master suit Css5. The new software installation can change your license and computer registry. You will find yourself re-installing the software that you currently have.Does anybody knows if its possible to upgrade to the latest version using the same license?
