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

Others prefer to reserve class sessions for class critiques only, while students work on assignments outside of class. What are your thought... Read More

Hello, I am looking to speak with someone who is an educator for InDesign. The company I work for is going to be switching to InDesign for Proposals soon, and we have our proposal department (5) people who will need to be trained. We looked at online and also local community classes, but we don't feel this will be the most beneficial for them as they won't be doing too much "creating". They would be using a template and edited where needed.

I'm a high school art teacher and I want to get students interested in animation. I'm teaching an intro to art class and would like to do a unit on animation with Character Animator and Photoshop. I'm looking for a worksheet with all of the puppet attributes listed so students can hand draw then scan into Photoshop and further manipulate before finishing up in Character Animator. Has anyone seen or used anything like this? I'm planning to make something but would love to see what others might already have.

Hi Everyone! Next school year (2017-2018) my high school will begin offering digital photography. We already have students signed up for 3 sections of the class and I have been tasked with teaching one of them in the spring of 2018. I actually don't know a thing about photography (I think since I teach Photoshop they felt I was a good fit for the over flow class!), but fortunately the other two women teaching the class know more than I do. We'll be using a couple professional development days this summe... Read More

Hi Everyone! I teach students in grades 9 - 12 at a suburban high school outside of Boston. I'm in my 5th year teaching and my colleagues and I have been noticing what seems to be an emerging trend with our teen students. Many are under such intense stress while they try to achieve "perfect scores" because college competition is so high that their creativity is stifled. They are afraid to take risks and make mistakes because they see it as hurting their average and ruining their chance for an... Read More

Hello instructors, I teach at Langara College in Vancouver, British Columbia Canada. I teach Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop. I usually teach on a Mac and I use the Accessibility feature for zooming in and out to show the tools and menus on a projector. I will begin teaching on a Windows machine and I am wondering if anyone knows of a third party software for doing this. I know Windows has a magnifying tool but it doesn't work like the Mac version. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
