Want to use social media in the classroom but it's blocked? Never fear, use these templates to create Instagram profiles or photo uploads from famous people from history, fictional characters or today's celebrities, politicians and sports stars. These Instagram templates will allow you and your students to create a fake Instagram post and/or an Instagram profile. Editable components include the image(s), username, profile picture, post text, first comment, and number of photo uploads, followers and following. You will need to have the Roboto font installed on your computer if you would like the font to best reflect the font used by Instagram. I recommend downloading and loading this set of Instagram actions into Photoshop so you can apply Instagram-like filters to the photographs that you use in assembling a profile or photo. Credit to motheer-212. Check out this 'How to' on loading actions. Students will need to know how to insert images, move image layers, and edit text. What a great way to introduce them to these basic Photoshop concepts. Have fun!

I will be teaching Digital Design, Digital Photography, Web Design, etc next school year. 2017-2018. I've found tons of great information here to help me get started. I'm also looking for a decent conference to attend that would be beneficial. I found the Adobe Max conference in Las Vegas this October, but that's all I've been able to find so far. Has anyone been to this conference, and is it worthwhile for someone new? Any other suggestions would be welcome. Thanks!

Hello all! Attached is a resource I use with my Year 7 and 8 ICT classes, also suitable for higher levels. The tutorial allows students to develop a range of Photoshop skills through remaking an existing Hollywood movie poster. I find that my students are particularly engaged with projects like this as they are familiar with the topic in this case "Guardians of the Galaxy". This tutorial is broken down into three key production phases including: background, images and text. It address skills like: deep etching, using the text tool, gradients, masking, free transform, groups, layering and blending modes. I also usually run a unit on design analysis before proceeding to practical tutorials. Students are also encouraged to create their own remakes or original posters after completing this tutorial. I have attached some student examples for your referral. This Photoshop tutorial is at an intermediate level and requires some basic knowledge of Photoshop and is suited for both Adobe CS6 and CC. The images used here are only for educational purposes and have been edited to the point where it no longer resembles the original image. Image assets are attached as a zipped file. I have developed a series of these tutorials over the year. I will be creating video tutorials for these projects as well in the near future. Would love to see you implement these into your own classes and would love to hear feedback on how it goes. Happy to create more if people find it useful! Enjoy! Andrew Lai
I am a life long learner. I will study till I grow old. With that said, I have two children under 4 who use iPad and learn computer motions quick. Should I let them run with it or limit their abilities?. As a computer programmer and database developer, I see a world where learning computer from birth is a possibility... i have read studies and conducted limited research on technology and kids as a learning tool ,,, where do you stand?,, what have you contributed to this area? Please endulge my curiosity as I try to give the next generations a tool to change the world for the better..

Hi there I am in the process of developing a project that revolves around Science and Art. 2015 is the year of light which will be the theme. I am after ideas for artworks to create, programs to use, other ideas for this project. For example, photography tasks, Photoshop, Lightroom. Thank you in advance. Any crazy and random ideas will also be welcome! Jess :)
This idea come up visiting a behance portfolio of Akatre Studio, Paris, France - https://www.behance.net/gallery/23194649/Zero-To-Five-by-Akatre?isa0=1# it would be a great project for photoshop classes, even illustrator: what do you have in your head? the people could take pictures of real objects over/in front their heads or make photoshop collages. if working on illustrator, they could draw objects, vectorize their own photos and create portraits.
Hi allI am wondering if you use any warmers/ ice-breaker exercises in your creative learning environment you want to share.Thank you.Have a great day Chris
It is important to talk to my students and teach my students about how to become visually literate in this world of digital photography and manipulation. It starts with teaching them about what is ethical or not ethical. It is also about teaching them about what is fiction or fact when portraying digital images. I discuss visually literacy and ethics by showing my students resources, such as the resources suggested on the Adobe Education Exchange. I then let them practice digital manipulation for themselves. The steps that I use are usually: introduce by showing, lecture, practice real projects, and review and reflect.
This short tutorial and activity will run you through the Dodge, Burn and Blur Tools which replicate dark room techniques. You will then use these skills for a game of digital hide & seek. Digital hide & seek involves using your Photoshop skills to hide images inside another image without them looking out of place.
This project introduces and develops basic skills in using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. Students are required to design and create bug game graphics and an app icon. This booklet contains interactive links, step by step instructions and examples throughout. It could be a project based learning style project as it contains writing tasks, literacy, numeracy and many other skills suitable for other subjects / key learning areas. History, Geography, Science etc can by incorporated to extend on the project. This project could also be extended to actually design the game using Adobe Flash.
As the year winds down, we have had many great resources shared here on the Ed Exchange, some found and others created by our members. Which ones stand out as the best resources this year? Why not comment and we can compile a shortlist of the best of the best?
I love to teach people to use new tools and to explore new ideas, and to learn new things. When not teaching I like to create art sculpting and painting.
This is a print and digital resource for a unit on the exploring the work of M.C. Escher, a tessellation design challenge, and an exploration of cultural symbols. This unit was designed with these goals in mind: Have students learn about the graphic design work of M.C Escher. Encourage students to look beyond the facts and pictures or even the stories of an artwork and seek to understand it's cultural, symbolic, and social meaning across cultures. to have students select one of a number of approaches to create a repeat pattern design in the form of a tessellation. This package contains instructions, student samples, downloadable and editable worksheets, reference links and a rubric.
Nine revealing pieces compiled in a poster grid where the student/designer visually reveals what they want another to know about them. A great project for an entire grading period. Each piece can be for a grade and then one for the whole. Students can present their projects to whole class which allows for them to get to know each other better. Requires research into things like professions or heritage. Uses photography and photo manipulation. Great end of school project when skills are developed and attention spans are short - focusing on themselves is priceless!
This task allows you to put yourself (or another person) in the same image a number of times. The concept was used by Australian photographer Michael Cook to create his series "Majority Rules". It's a lot of fun and is limited only by your imagination. I use it with my Year 9 students and the results are usually amazing.
A rubric we use across Art, Photography & Design classes. Includes Group elements on the back side so they can be optional. Includes product, process and craft.
