New Adobe global study reveals that creative problem-solving skills are central to success in the future workforce but are not adequately supported in today’s curricula. In researching Creative Problem Solving in Schools: Essential Skills Today’s Students Need for Jobs in Tomorrow’s Age of Automation, Adobe surveyed 1600 educators and 400 policymakers from the U.K., Japan, Germany and the U.S. and learned how the people shaping education and students’ experiences view creative problem solving as a critical skill. Overwhelmingly, 86 percent of global educators believe that students who excel at creative problem-solving will have higher-earning job opportunities in the future, and 85 percent agreed that these same skills are in high demand by today’s employers for senior level and higher paying careers. Additionally, three quarters of respondents predict that professions that require creative problem-solving skills are less likely to be impacted by automation. Yet despite this clear consensus, there is a huge disconnect with what is happening in the classroom today. 90 percent of educators believe we need to find better ways to integrate it into the curricula, and more than half of educators explain that they do not have the tools, training or knowledge to nurture creative problem solving in their students. Of the policymakers surveyed, 88 percent advocate for finding a way to reform the current curricula in their region to better nurture creative problem solving in schools.

I have been approached by my administrator to consider replacing the Mac computers in my classroom with PC. The Technology department does not like maintaining the Mac lab. I would like to get some feedback regarding current industry standards. What are you using in your classroom/business? Is Mac still the goto graphics platform? Thanks for your input.
I would love to know more about what is out there and what teachers are using. I know that it might be too expensive right now to use AR, but I hope that there is something that can help the students get on board with using technology to learn. Are there an Adobe tools that can help with this process?
Educators on the Adobe Education Exchange who’ve created a Creative Teaching Profile have leveraged their expertise within the AEE community to become thought leaders. Their participation in the community has led other members to seek out their work, follow them, collaborate with them and rate and use their resources. In turn, their leadership has earned them admittance into Adobe Education’s specialized communities, where they can network with other leading educators. Beyond the AEE community, these leading educators have leveraged their profiles to showcase their expertise and become school leaders, present at conferences and create an audience to share their points of view via social media outlets. Do you think creating a Creative Teaching Profile is worthwhile? What benefits do you think will come of it? What ideas do you have to start creating your Creative Teaching Profile? (This discussion post is part of the Adobe Education Exchange Professional Development Workshop, Up & Running on the Adobe Education Exchange.)
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!

This is just a fun question. Does anyone else share their Adobe Education Exchange status or badges on social network? I know it's silly and teachers use the same sort of award system to motivate children but I am a sucker for Leveling Up! Happy Sharing! Dan
