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?

I recently launched a short, sequenced video series to support writing instruction across disciplines. I utilized Adobe Creative suite to add drawing elements to this series. You can access the series via my Study Guides, where they are sequenced and embedded with the writing instruction lessons or via You Tube: Instructor Knapp These writing instruction videos are embedded and sequenced alongside assignments and activities in my digital study guides. These study guides provide high school Language Arts and post-secondary composition and reading instructors with an all-inclusive teaching and learning "kit." Faculty Testimonial:" It’s a tremendously useful text, which you only keep improving. So, thank YOU for that! I can’t begin to say what a life-saver it was when I was kind of thrown in at the deep end teaching 2 sections of 100A my very first semester as a lecturer, back in fall 2014. Seriously. "
This project is to encourage students to learn more about the many careers that include science, technology, engineering, art, and math. By allowing students to see many current careers and letting them hone in one a few that peaks their interest, students will not only learn about the career, but gain direction on what schooling, salary, work environment, etc. each of the careers include. Description STEAM Website by Wall High School Students Students will first use the internet to search for STEAM careers. Once they have a list, they can then use the Ferguson's database to research each of the careers. Students will select five STEAM careers. They will research an overview of each of these careers. Based upon their findings which they have posted in a Google Doc, they will select their most favorite from the five. They will then conduct more detailed research of this favorite STEAM career; again adding their findings to their Google Doc. Once they have obtained more detailed information on the career such as schooling, workplace environment, description of a day in that career, job description, hiring potential, and potential salaries, students will then be videoed while describing their chosen career. Videos will be shared via the STEAM website.
