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

I am looking for teaching and assessment tools to present Dreamweaver CC 2015 to juniors and seniors in high school. I know that Adobe does have Learning Adobe Dreamweaver CC. At one point I was told they would update this to Dreamweaver CC 2015. I am looking for the latest resources in teaching and assessing Dreamweaver CC 2015. If there are updates that would be helpful to teach juniors and seniors and if there are other resourses please feel free to pass them on. Thanks! Peace Shawn

Hello All, I am Ishita Jain, an architect, currently teaching at a university. I am proposing a Speculative Architecture Studio, where the students are required to build narratives of their contexts and we would like for them to learn After Effects as a tools. While I am scouting around Ahmedabad, Gujarat for professionals who can come down and teach, the search isn't yielding some great results so far. Can anyone suggest an online platform where some collaborations can be made?

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.

I am a middle school teacher currently teaching a course in digital photography to 7th grades. I have been looking for ideas on new projects that I can offer my students. My course is 9 weeks long and I have to teach them Photoshop, the basics of exposure and composition in photography and building websites in Weebly. Here are a list of the current projects that I do, but I am wondering if there are some other projects that anyone could recommend. 1. Shoot the ordinary-this is about composition. Studen...

I am currently incorporating Adobe CC into my rhet/comp curriculum for first-year and third-year students. The tools available in the suite allow students greater versatility and professional design quality in their multimedia projects, and I believe that visual and aural literacies (as well as written and spoken literacies) are vital in preparing students for careers in a digital world. However, there are a number of challenges in teaching Adobe CC apps in a class not exclusively devoted to design. One pro... Read More

At the recent Adobe MAX I happened to sit at a lunch table with a couple of educators who commented that they wished they were more tools and resources available to them when they were teaching Photoshop and Illustrator. We had an interesting discussion that made me think that I could/should be doing more in creating content/tools/resources for other educators. What are your thoughts on this? What do you currently use as resources to help you learn, and/or to use in your classroom? Would it be useful to h... Read More

My school added an advanced graphic design course to my load this year (high school), which I'm happy about, but then realized my students had merely matriculated and weren't necessarily my more talented or creatively skilled students from the year prior. They have foundational knowledge of Photoshop and Illustrator, and I do plan to spend time with layout in Indesign, but for the most part, I'm at a loss of how/what to teach! With their foundational knowledge of the programs, I had expected to be able to... Read More

Premiere Crashing QLD State School

I was wondering if any other public state schools are having issues with Premiere CC (2015 version I think) crashing on school desktops? I can't remember the exact error message I would need to get if when at school. However when it comes up it says to check for solutions and nothing happens. Then we need to restart the computer to get the program working again. Even this sometimes doesn't work you need to restart it several times. If anyone has experienced this I am wondering how you fixed it?
