It seems like every time I go on Spark it takes forever to load or it won't load at all. I've tried different browsers, different times of day, different internet connections with no luck. I'm trying to work on creating presentations for my classroom but if the site isn't consistent then that will be a problem.

My school recently purchased creative cloud for my classroom and I want to use it to start teaching an introductory lesson of Graphic Design that will be six weeks long. Does anyone have advice on which program I should start with first? I was thinking about starting with Photoshop and then continuing to Illustrator, and then ending with inDesign. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. - Thank you

Grade illustrator assignments on an iPad Pro?

I'm wondering if anyone here can help me with this issue. My dean offered to get me an iPad Pro instead of a laptop. The purpose of the laptop request was so that I can do grading away from school. I mainly am grading Adobe Illustrator files (occasionally photoshop) and need to see all the layers. I essentially "deconstruct" their drawings when they hand them in to me. Is there an app for iPad that would allow me to grade illustrator files? Any information would be appreciated. Thank you!

Do any of you try to get your students on the road to get adobe accolades like badges, certifications? How many use Lightroom in the classroom? I was told by my school that Lightroom is not included in the creative suite. Is that true?

Many individuals and institutions have a lot of images, a valuable resources for publishing, promoting and educations objectives. Many times I face the same problem working in such situations: nobody knows the good pictures are. If there is one... In both cases the problem starts when there is no a responsable person in charge of the pictures and there is no protocols for keeping and managing pictures. In my book making work (publishing?) I have to manage an bank of +200.000 images (pictures in raw and jp... Read More

CTE teachers, What curriculum are you using with your Adobe programs now that Adobe is updating every year? I've been using Classroom in a Book, but I'm not sure how best to keep up with the updates. Pretty much any curriculum goes out of date almost as soon as it comes in! I'm interested to see how Pearson keeps up since the tests are supposed to be live in-app next year. I'm hoping we'll find out more at Certified this year, but it's challenging figuring out how to proceed!

I'm hoping to hear some creative ways that teachers/professors use Adobe products to enhance projects or assessment for their students. Not examples of using Photoshop or InDesign to make posters or things, but how you've incorporated Adobe products into your students curriculum driven projects, presentations, or reflections.
