    Flipping the Elementary/Middle School Technology Classroom Discussion by Bertha Kirschten Feb 14, 2016 Products Audition Photoshop Adobe Spark
    +4
    15k 27

    I am interested in flipping some of my elementary/middle school technology content. I teach business and computers in grades 1-12. I am considering flipping some of my content - in particular tutorials that teach students about the various tools and techniques in many Adobe applications. In our district, I know that all students have internet access at home, so it is plausible that the flipped learning model would work for certain types of instruction. There are so many high quality tutorials for learning that it would be a better investment of time to use these for students to watch and learn at home and then practice skills at school. Implementing the flipped classroom model would give students more hands on time learning and practicing the skills with guided help from me when needed. My questions to those of you who teach at the elementary level -- At what grade level have you used the flipped model? What types of materials do you use when flipping the elementary level -- video tutorials, handouts, etc?How do you ensure that students view materials at home?What advice/hints/tips do you a have for a flipping newbie?What Adobe products do you teach at the elementary level? At what grade do you start teaching Adobe products? Thanks for you input. I look forward to the discussion.

    Justifying Annual Cost of CC / Benefits to School Discussion by Karen Hellyer Feb 10, 2016 Products Acrobat Adobe Premiere Pro Photoshop

    16k 44

    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!

    Teaching good work ethic and leadership skills in the classroom. Discussion by Brent Jaffe Nov 7, 2015 Products Adobe Premiere Pro Dreamweaver Photoshop

    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.

    For those teachers who hand out the assignment before teaching the skills. I was wondering what your views were on Project Based Learning where students learn on the go and your teaching is synchronised with the assignment requirements. Does it work or have you tried more effective approaches.

    Multiple Me Project Project by Jason Lachance May 19, 2018 Products Photoshop Lightroom Bridge
    +1
    14 1

    The multiple me project was created for the first year graphic design students. Its a great project for using multiple adobe applications and works for any of these courses Photography foundation, Photoshop foundation and InDesign Foundation. The student plan and execute a photoshoot of themselves or a model photographing themselves multiple times in one scene. The students need to pay attention to depth of field, focus and shoot in manual mode. The camera can not be moved once the first image of the background is shot. Then using a timer or a friend they take multiple shots of themselves in the scene in various poses and positions. The students tend to work this project much more when they use themselves as the model. I use this photo of me dressed as the Village People playing poker to get the students inspired (all though none of them know who the village people are anymore so I might need to remake it soon). Using Adobe Bridge or Lightroom they filter through and choose five images plus the image of the background. They need to pay attention to placement of the model/themselves in the various shots as to not overlap them. I start the project having the students sketch out 3 or 4 ideas on paper. We discuss their ideas in class and they choose a runner. Once they have their 6 shots they open them up in photoshop as layers either from Bridge or Lightroom. Using selection tools and Layer masks they paint in the multiple shots of themselves in the image. You can search how its done on Youtube. The students are then asked to create a booklet in InDesign with entrance reflections, sketches of ideas, sketch of runner idea, final PS image and exit reflection. I will include some examples of the booklets, final images and rubric. Super fun project for all ages.

    Job Tickets and Spec Sheets Discussion by Jennifer DiBiasio Aug 22, 2017 Products Photoshop Illustrator InDesign 302 1

    Hello! I am a Graphic Communications instructor at a vocational high school and I teach sophomores, juniors, and seniors. I am starting this year off by doing a review of prepress with the juniors. I like to give the students various job tickets and spec sheets to view and gather information from. We have a standard format we use for live work coming into the school so the students are accustomed to where information is located on our job tickets. I wanted to switch it up this year and give them outside job tickets to view to make them have to work a little harder. I was wondering if there were any working design and/or production professionals who would be able to share with me a job ticket or spec sheet they have had from a customer order. I understand with some companies there are particular privacy guidelines, so of course I wouldn't want someone to break those rules. We focus on design, production, printing presses, finishing and bindery, screenprinting just to name a few, so anything in that arena would be very helpful to us. Any help is very much appreciated. Thank you!

Using InDesign, students will balance the organizational and spatial aesthetics of graphic design with visual elements from the exhibit itself in order to craft an informational and visually appealing brochure. In doing so, they will engage deeply and critically in the content of an art exhibit, increasing their understanding of the humanities, while also improving their creativity, organization, and research skills.

    This resource provides an overview, syllabus, and sample student work for a college-level media production course. The primary learning outcome for the course is for students to deepen their understanding of "how media work" both rhetorically and materially by (re)presenting the same documentary narrative in five different modes, using at least five different Adobe Creative Cloud applications: (1) Print Magazine using InDesign (2) Audio Podcast using Audition (3) Film using Premiere Pro (4) Website using Muse, Spark, or XD (5) Mobile Application using XD [*6] Photography using Photoshop *Note that in this class, students didn't present photographic collections per se, but they used Photoshop a great deal to develop media for the other genres and applications.
