​I use Adobe software experiences with Design Thinking for project-based learning in high school. Combining these experiences fosters creativity. Students will better utilize software because they are eager to make their creative ideas a reality.

One course I teach at The University of New South Wales (UNSW), Faculty of Built Environment, is Cinematic Space. ​ Students learn about space and place through watching films and making their own. The major project is a short film of up to 7 minutes long themed around space, place and time. The films are always great to watch and make me feel inspired.

Tools used include - Photoshop, Premiere, After Effects

Dear Forum Members,

I have been teaching and working in Adobe Illustrator (me about 20 years) in the classroom 8 years.

In the past 2 years, my high school has initiated ACA: Adobe Certification in Illustrator.

Does anyone else do certifications? Do you have any good strategies / methods beyond G-Metrix Practice Exams?

Thank you in advance, sincerely,

Amelie Babkie​

​I plan to use the visual character analysis with my 8th grade advanced students on their self-selected, non-fiction novel in Jan/Feb.

​Would enjoy creating a TEDx talk in Southern California based on this learning platform and the talent that is utilizing it in their classroom. Let me know if you're interested in building some iteration of this out and looking forward to the possibilities.

With all my learning so far, I am actively seeking an avenue to incoporate a design club that draws students from ​diverse disciplines to learn Adobe Creative design tools.

We are learning Adobe Illustrator Basics in Digital Art 1. Students who are absent need worksheets or some type of home work to stay on pace. Students don't have the programs at home. I'm looking for worksheets or some ideas to give to students who are out. Any suggestions?​

I have had the opportunity to work with ADOBE software for a long time and the possibilities of empowering creative thinking in the classroom are endless, until recently I actively participate in AEX, which has allowed me to improve in many aspects in pedagogy

I have learned that there are many ways Adobe can help me teach math. Technology is something that is easy and hard for me at the same time. So I understand when it’s said that some students need hands on experience, that in itself is learning that will be retained.​

Adobe has showed me a lot of tools that I will be able to use in the math classroom.​

This course has given me insight to tools that I wasn't comfortable with​. Adobe has allowed me to explore and be creative with a variety of presentations from post to video. Now there's a sense of relaxation as I look forward to sharing my knowledge and skills with my students.

​Being comfortable with technology is a must and it takes time. As you mentioned, Adobe has allowed me to explore my creative side. Can’t wait to do it with my students.

In this course, I have learnt a lot about the creative teaching using multiple tools of Adobe. I had already learnt about Spark in Visual essays course. This course, however has given me more tools to lay with while trying the creative approach in educating the students. What I have liked about education is that they have provided various links to the tools that I can always use to learn various Adobe programs. In this digital age, students are visual learners and they will definitely enjoy various tools of Adobe to be creative and find that education is not simply a duty to learn, but it can be enjoyable experience to gain knowledge and retain it for life-long time.​

Teachers can have students create graphs in order to solve math problems or summarize historical events in poetic verse. Introducing the arts into the classroom can breathe new life into banal subjects.

Hello, I hope all is well as for myself I appreciate the opportunity to share my thoughts. I have been using the Adobe Spark to produce but not on the level of encouraging students to use in the classroom. I did have the idea if I wanted a platform to help the children begin the process for the digital integration it would be Adobe Spark. I have experimented with my son and homeschooling which I notice marginal improvements in research as well expressing his thoughts digitally. I always suggest creating a draft of brainstorms at least 20 minutes with the pencil and paper. Tackling a consequential thinking method would ensure part of the trial and error process explored. I think and feel this is the stepping stone for my students entering the digital transition in the classroom. Thank you and please stay blessed.
