For those of you who have organized or participated in some, how has the experience been? I know there are a couple of ways I want my students to experience film festivals. One is through possibly participating in one locally; the other way is by organizing an on-campus one. Most of my students are animators, although we do have video production classes on campus. I'm wondering...for those of you who have organized them, what has been your process in doing that? What kinds of categories do you include, ho... Read More

There's a few file format in Photoshop. Out of the 25 file types found in Photoshop's "Save As" dialog box, there's really only a handful of them that most of us will ever use. Discuss and eloborate with your team members about all the formats.

I've been trying to find tools that will allow my students (creatives, not coders) to create AR/VR content for playback on web/Rift/Vive/Go/Quest/cardboard+smartphone/anything really. I had hoped to use Tour Creator and Poly to have students create Google Expeditions but our school system does not allow students to have Google accounts and blocks the sites in question. I then thought I would have the students use Adobe Captivate 2019 which appears to have support for VR/360 images/360 video (I'm not sure... Read More

Walking along the harbour (Sydney) I noticed the wharves had a safety fence lining the entire edge to the water in a way where you could not get close enough to see in the water. It made me consider what is the impact of our current risk aversion culture having on student creativity?

An art teacher recently mentioned the work of Thom Pastrano as an inspiration for graphic design classes. I had not seen his work prior to her mention, which leads me to ask.... who are the overlooked or emerging artists you teach that other teachers should definitely look into?

I have been teaching graphic design and video production for a long time. This year I am teaching photography for the first time. I don't have any storage for photography camera and gear, so I need some suggestions. Video cameras are larger and in large bags, so I just have heavy duty shelving for the video gear. Photography cameras are smaller and if we are shooting during class a lot I don't need the cameras to always be in bags. I am looking for a solution to store cameras sans bags (or bags next to them... Read More

I am looking for a picture book InDesign children's picture book template for my 8th graders. They will be doing an assignment where they create a computer information picture book for younger students. This is an introductory assignment for InDesign and I don't want the students main focus to be on how to set up a book in InDesign. Instead, how to work with a template and learn about computers. I am not skilled enough to create one myself and have not found any online that have a cover page & Inside... Read More

I have 30 years advertising experience and have mentored and trained hundreds of employees but never taught a class. I will now be joining University of New Mexico where I just moved to teach Graphic Design and Intro to Web Design. Any pointers on how to speak to young folks who are paying to learn vs being paid to learn ( in the filed training is PAID to learn VS college is PAYING to learn) I'm a bit nervous about the approach but not sure I need to be :)

I am new to this community, and I am intrigued by Adobe Premier Rush. There is a free course coming up titled "60-Second Documentary" that would be great for my teaching subject- Social Studies. My question is: Have you ever incorporated Adobe Premier Rush into your lesson (SS in particular), and have you ever assigned students to create their own video(s) using Adobe Premier Rush? If students have created a video, how was their response to this particular technology resource? Was it difficult to... Read More

We have been working with Adobe Creative Cloud Student licenses this past school year. It's changed the way we have taught our classes and really created a student-centered learning experience where the students can learn in any environment, not just in the computer lab. One issue we've come across as our school year ended was what happens to student work in Creative Cloud - especially Portfolio upon graduation? We really want to use Portfolio for our students Digital Portfolios - but ended up using Adob... Read More

Do you think that we can learn to draw to someone who does not know how to draw, using Photoshop and Illustrator software. It is clear that for a person who has a gift and who can draw, we can teach him how to improve with Photoshop and Illustrator.

So, I've been a journalism educator for more than 15 years, and in the past few years I've gotten much more involved in eLearning, teaching courses online and working with other faculty to do the same. The most I get into the eLearning world, the more I see parallels between journalism and education. Or more generally, both are about bringing prosocial change, providing individuals the information and resources they need to live better lives. And both bring those changes through creating content and build... Read More

Hi all, My school district is looking to add a STEAM program to replace large group study halls. They have asked me to teach a class on Adobe products and create a "course description" for what that would look like. I am wondering if anyone can direct me to an existing page that already outlines some of the connections between Adobe and STEAM curriculum. thanks
