Students animated the melody of a jazz song using imagery inspired by Paul Klee from hand drawn and painted surfaces, making shapes in Photoshop and animating in After Effects. The final animation was given to our school's jazz band, under the direction of Patrick Bowen, without any audio and then interpreted by the students into a new song. The piece was projected during one of their performances and they played their composition live.

Greetings! I'm finally getting our school to switch from our perpetual, 500-seat site license of CS6 Master Collection to CC. Our budget admin is weighing the pros and cons of continuing to provide access to all Adobe products for all students, staff and faculty, due to the increase in cost. Our Ed Tech director is trying to negotiate with Adobe Education about this, but communication has been spotty. We are a 1-to-1 laptop school with a Mac Lab for digital arts classes in electronic music production, video, photo, animation and publication arts. Without access to CC on their PCs, students in those classes are limited to working only during class time and after school. Additionally, other students do use Adobe products provided on their PCs for other classes. I'm wondering how your school does it. What's possible? Is it necessary for kids to use Photoshop, or is there a free product that students can use instead? (Yes, that's a question I was asked. How would you respond???) Thanks!
I am a high school media teacher that teaches an introductory class in digital media to 9th graders. I feel that the maturity and skill level of my students requires that I provide a lot of control over the procedures and steps to the point that they do not have to take on a lot of responsibility and leadership for the projects they work on. But, soft skills and leadership are supposed to be incorporated into my class. The classes they take after mine incorporate much more independent work. I'm looking for suggestions or references that can help me begin building these skills in my class.
I'm in my 14th year instructing high school students in Film. Editing, Lighting, Special Effects, Graphic Design, Sound Design and Photography using CS6 Suite
Hello All! I was hoping to seek ideas, opinions and strategies with regards to innovative ways to showcase student work (digital media productions). What has worked for you in the past? How did you engage the target audience? What was the audience response? What were the WOW factors that made it work? Best regards, Andrew
This task is designed to assist students in analysing what goes into film, TV, game and webseries titles. It then moves on to brainstorming and then designing titles for their own project. Works really well with these resources (as well as my previously posted storyboard template): Art of the Title How They Did It

I teach a Commercial Photography course to high school juniors and seniors. While I'm really good at giving informal feedback when I'm walking around the classroom and looking over students' shoulders, I'm always looking for ways to give more in depth feedback on digital files without printing out a sheet of paper and writing on it. I've tried all sorts of stuff including making Notes in Photoshop, editing the metadata of photos, turning photos into PDFs and commenting on the side. So far, I have yet to find a method that has felt satisfactory. This year, I'm planning on having students upload their assignments to Canvas (our LMS) and giving grades/writing short pieces of feedback there, but I wanted to check in and see if anyone else that teaches a digital media course has found or created a feedback method that they swear by.
What do you use the Adobe Education Exchange site for the most? What would you consider to be it's best features? What do you think it's missing? How often do you interact with your account? Is it worth being apart of?
Can "creativity" be graded? If so, how do you grade a students "creativity" in an assignment? If not, why? Let's Talk!
Hi All, I'm a new to Adobe Exchange and this is my very first post! I work at an IB school in Australia and I'm looking at trying to implement a new Media Arts course. The goal of it is to teach Adobe products so that they are ready for their year 11 and 12 subject called Film and Television. My current plan goes as follows: Year 9 – Semester 1- Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator – Logo and Poster for a business. Year 9 – Semester 2 – Adobe After Effects – Make a YouTube Instructional Video Year 10 – Semester 1 – Adobe Premiere Pro/ Story – Make a fake Newscast (biased) Year 10 – Semester 2 – All the software we have covered – Final Project Rather than reinvent the wheel. I'm looking for someone to collaborate with. If anyone has any resources/suggestions on how to work on this or is currently I would like to work together. cheers, Hendo
I wanted to reach out to the braintrust to see what tools you would use to create quick, math-related, video tutorials that include some animation and effects. It would also be good to think through what the best workflow to create learning materials that are accessible, reusable, and updateable. I am looking forward to thinking through this with you all.
This tutorial demonstrates the essentials of creating an animation using Adobe Illustrator and Adobe After Effects. The graphics are created in Illustrator and imported to After Effects to add animation and visual effects. The demonstration recreates the Apollo 11 moon landing, with the lunar lander arriving on the moon's surface. This tutorial could be adapted for a history lesson, with students re-creating other historic events, or perhaps used in a Drama or English lesson to create scenes from plays or novels. The final animation is saved in a format suitable for uploading to a video sharing site or a Virtual Learning Environment.

In this video we will cover how to extract the green properties from a video. This is a project demonstrating how I create resources for students at Chiswick School.
Hello All! The following resource is something I created and presented during the Adobe Education Leadership Summit 2016 held at the Adobe office in Sydney, Australia. This resource includes a link to my slides and also a link to the video recording of the live presentation. I have recently been quite intrigued by the concept of User Experience Design (UXD) and its possible application in education. As a result, I began conducting some initial research and came across the term Learning/Learner Experience Design (LXD). LX design is the process of designing engaging and meaningful experiences that help to facilitate many types of learning in a human centered way. With the designer's mindset, I have now reimagined my way of thinking about teaching/facilitating and I've been experimenting with different approaches to truly engage and bring value to my users, the student's. These thoughts, ideas and my experiments are explored in my presentation. Feel free to connect with me @misterAOY on Twitter or Instagram or if you'd like to see and learn more!
What type of educational materials/supports do you often feel like you need or lack in the classroom when it comes to educating students with special needs? Video, Visuals, etc...?
Take your videos to the next level with engaging motion graphics and cinematic visual effects. With After Effects, you and your students will discover bold new ways to put ideas into motion.
This lesson plan is designed to take students through the entire process of creating an animated short movie; from script through to final project students will learn the creative process, animation principles, and further develop skills in the Adobe software programs that are required to complete the project. A multi-week project, students will complete milestones that lead to the final movie completion: develop a scriptcompile/create assets and sound effectscreate a voice overcomplete a storyboarddevelop an animaticcomplete the final animation The lesson plan contains several links to introduce many of the above milestones. There are also multiple additional free resources to introduce topics and learning available on YouTube, Vimeo, Lynda.com, etc. A sample final project has been included.
Recording of my Adobe webinar on using the restriction method The restriction method is a really valuable technique for encouraging creative thinking, problem solving and boundary-less play. Placing restrictions on tasks or processes can open up entirely new approaches to skills, techniques or ideas. It's seems counter-intuitive but it is a great way to help kick-start creative thinking. How many different ways could you animate the same image? I set myself this challenge in 2015 and I am still finding heaps of new ways of doing it (and developing new skills) https://www.behance.net/gallery/29859911/CMYK-Self-Portraits https://www.behance.net/gallery/25274205/GIF-Self-Portraits

I've been asked by a fellow awesome educator (Dan Armstrong) to make a in-depth tutorial for the Caped Movietrailer competition in Idaho. This is a huge competition where high school students from that USA state can make their very own original movie trailer in order to win great prizes for themselves and their school. In order to set them up I've made a 45 minute tutorial with several chapters about Premiere Pro and After Effects. It contains topics from ingesting footage in Premiere Pro until the final export in the Media Encoder. The tutorial has been made for the competition, but could be a valuable resource for other students as wel.
