Hi Everyone, This site is truly amazing. I have gained a lot of knowledge and resources for my class. However, I've been hitting a roadblock as to the content for my particular grade level. I am teaching Middle School graphic design, with a mix of 7th and 8th graders. I am finding it a little difficult to teach Adobe Illustrator, because they tend to get confused by all of the tools and different effects that it has to offer. Also, I am not sure what I need to be teaching, since the school is pretty much g... Read More

Hello! I am a 13-year veteran teacher, but for the first time I am teaching Graphic Design courses. I am curious if anyone would be willing to share their Adobe InDesign lessons or project ideas? I'm teaching at the high school level and the majority of my students are 11th and 12th graders. Any relevant content would be appreciated!

Hello! I am a Graphic Communications instructor at a vocational high school and I teach sophomores, juniors, and seniors. I am starting this year off by doing a review of prepress with the juniors. I like to give the students various job tickets and spec sheets to view and gather information from. We have a standard format we use for live work coming into the school so the students are accustomed to where information is located on our job tickets. I wanted to switch it up this year and give them outside j... Read More

Hello All, I'm a first year design teacher and I'm wondering where I can easily download (or better yet, have students download) free images to use and manipulate in a high school class? I'd love a nice stock library to choose from, but at this time I have no budget. Thanks in advance for any information. //a73

I taught Digital Arts years ago, but so much has changed. I am just getting back into teaching and will be teaching a semester long course to mostly freshman. I will be teaching mainly Photoshop. Any ideas on what to teach in that short a time? I'm not sure how to effectively teach this in only one semester. I'm hoping to build the program into year long courses where I can teach Illustrator as well, but for now it is just PS. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

If you think a different set of 4 should be taught, please suggest the 4. Second, what do you think of the idea that each year, each student c... Read More

Hi Greg/Kev/Sjaani, I'm trying to figure out how to download some of the raw files from two of the exercises we did in class (Shot Reverse Shot and Momentum). I'd love to use them in my own classes and have students work from the files that you provided for us. But I can't figure out how to download the files. I have them in my Creative Cloud Assets folder but ideally I'd love to be able to get all the raw files. Is this possible? Please advise! Thanks so much, Jack

Ken Robinson states that there needs to be a fundamental shift in the way we approach education.

I fully agree with Ken, however such a shift will take time. The culture that has been created since the industrial revolution is very strong. Breaking down such a culture requires more than making people aware. Adobe is doing the right thing by providing the tools to help creativity blossom. I just hope that Adobe will start making these tools affordable to everyone.

I am sure we've all seen this before... A kid holding a gaming device or smartphone in his hands and sitting still looking to it all day long and his parents yelling at him to stop doing that but he never does so willingly! Many parents think it's best to limit the time kids use technology and this make kids crave it more, in my opinion, and don't see this as a viable solution for the problem. I was hoping to find a way or hear someone's experience on how to solve this issue, and make sure our kids stay... Read More

Educators who teach studio art / digital media courses have class critiques to provide feedback to students. Class critiques are critical to students’ creative growth and is a tradition in studio courses. There are educators who believe that students should have class critiques during half of class sessions. Some prefer class critiques every other class session. Others prefer to reserve class sessions for class critiques only, while students work on assignments outside of class. What are your thought... Read More
