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.

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

Greetings all, We are feeling some tension between laptop vs. teaching lab Mac management and I'm wondering how your school "does it"? Currently, we provide students their own PC laptop for the duration of their high school career. The site licensed Adobe CC software is installed on their machines. Additionally, I teach in a Mac Lab with 27" iMacs, and have multiple user accounts configured so students in different classes have their own user account on the Mac. Our tech office hasn't figured out how to allow for automatic Adobe CC updates, and we don't use Adobe cloud. Is this the best practice going forward, or can you think of a better way to do this? What works for you? Thanks for sharing your experience!Karen

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.

Hello All, I am Ishita Jain, an architect, currently teaching at a university. I am proposing a Speculative Architecture Studio, where the students are required to build narratives of their contexts and we would like for them to learn After Effects as a tools. While I am scouting around Ahmedabad, Gujarat for professionals who can come down and teach, the search isn't yielding some great results so far. Can anyone suggest an online platform where some collaborations can be made?
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.
