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.

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 Pretty much any curriculum goes out of date almost as soon as it comes in!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.

Do others feel the need to give the students a printed piece of paper for a project? I fell as if I only send students digital instructions, they don't get the big picture.
