A common core aligned geometry lesson curated and altered to support 21st century learning skills. Students will learn first about calculating the surface area of a polyhedra (they should have been exposed to this concept prior to this lesson but not completely necessary) and then draw and create a "net." Students will identify using key vocabulary, the necessary parts of the polyhedra and manipulate several virtual nets and shapes. Students will work in teams to create several paper versions of geometric shapes and finally after watching tutorials, make one in the Adobe product of their choice. Students will finalize their lesson and display their understanding of polyhedra in a final written essay, which should include a picture of their finished polyhedra.

Hi allI am wondering if you use any warmers/ ice-breaker exercises in your creative learning environment you want to share.Thank you.Have a great day Chris
As the year winds down, we have had many great resources shared here on the Ed Exchange, some found and others created by our members. Which ones stand out as the best resources this year? Why not comment and we can compile a shortlist of the best of the best?
I’m constantly seeking ways for my students to use their computer literacy skills that will incorporate other subjects too. Responding to literature, science math or history are definitely ways to integrate core curriculum into my lessons. I have done the following in my classroom: Ideas: Student created video of math conceptStudent created explainer on the idea of DNAStudent created video explaining ideas learned in a unit, using graphics and text to demonstrate their understanding.Claymation video on the Human Reproductive System These are only a few ways I’ve supported students creative process in their learning; however, this lesson will enable students to recreate a bookcover of their favorite book or one they are reading for literature. Students will include in their book cover redesign: Summary of AuthorStory SummaryDiscuss the theme, plot and hint to the climaxPictureWhat you enjoyed/didn’t like about the book Students will use Google Drawing, Adobe Digital Publisher or Photoshop, if available
Students will use Digital Images or Photos they take to come up with a story idea. From there they will get into groups and using brainstorming, creative thought and visualizing they will create the beginning to their own stories. Students will each use a computer or laptop and after a period of time rotate. Students will rotate and add to their neighbors story in their group. After 3 to 4 rotations, the students will place an ending onto their story and begin to find or illustrate images to add to their story, bringing it to life. Students will use Adobe products to illustrate, sketch images and to finalize their stories. Students will end by producing a Digital Story using Adobe Voice.

Is it possible to achieve "Universal Technology in Education" with the disparity of resources in institutions of learning. Most large schools in wealthy areas have a wealth of hardware, software, and resources while the small rural schools, private schools, charter schools and home school students often do not have access to even the basic technology tools and resources.

The Adobe iPad Apps class is a showcase of the different Adobe Apps that are available. Due to recent changes in the Adobe App choices (Adobe Ideas dropped from the Creative Cloud). The Class includes what apps are available in the app store - rather than a focus on one of the apps. The workshop does not aim to teach the participants how to use the apps, the objective is to showcase the apps. And for the participants to have a better expectation of what each app function is (video, audio, presentation, drawing, planning etc.) Most people are slow to adapt using the iPad in any meaningful way. Most people want to know how they can improve their workflow - not make it more difficult by using inferior versions of apps they have on their desktop. This workshop objective is to help user know when they can use iPad apps to reach different goals. Visit the Class Resource page for sample of work created with Adobe iPad Apps that you can use in your class. The class feedback form is also included.

Hi all, If anyone is using Adobe programs in Years 7, 8 or 9 with the new National Curriculum, would you mind sharing your ideas? As far as I can see, we need to have a focus on programming. I'd like to see what everyone is doing. I'm going to miss using Photoshop and the like in the Junior Secondary years. Thanks for your help!

I would like to know the strategy of educators in teaching students about taste for design, or design acumen. The way how will educators know that a particular design is better than the other. furthermore, what are the techniques educators are using in teaching design concepts and boosting creativity of the students.
I am looking for teachers who are implementing classroom projects in the elementary school classroom where students are using Adobe software applications. If your students are currently using Adobe software applications I hope that you will post a comment to this discussion. I would like to know: 1) What grade level the students; 2) What products the students are using; 3) How many workstations are loaded with the software applications; 4) How was the software purchased; school or district funding, grant written by central district personnel, grant written by the teacher, software purchased by the teacher with own money, software donated by a company 5) What type of project are the students working on; 6) What other type of information concerning this discussion would you like to share? I believe that a discussion like this may help provide teachers the information needed to help justify technology purchases.
