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
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?
A poster I developed for my graphics design classes, summarizing what I felt were the essential elements of typography I wanted easily reference-able. If you feel there is anything I've missed that's essential, please let me know about it for consideration for inclusion in version 2. It may not be obvious from the thumbnail here, so I want to mention specifically that this is licensed CC-BY-SA, so feel free to use this in your courses, modify it, share it with others, and so on, subject only to the requirements to attribute me and share it in the same fashion (see the link if you're not sure what this means).

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'm at the end of the school year, marking the last assignments and looking through course evaluations. I read a comment from a student saying they were expecting more typography… and I wonder what they mean and how I could be clearer. I guess it is a bit like Karate Kid where the kid comes to the master to learn to fight and is given chores, the chores prepares his body to defend agains onslaught, strengthens his muscles and prepares him… but he does not reflect over that it is the tedious chores that is his training. We see it as the audience and the "wax on, wax off" becomes and iconic phrase for our students. I must make a mental note to share this parallel with students the next time I teach InDesign. So this class that has no typography, what did we do? We watched seminars from Cooper Type and similar playlists. Some in class, others I asked them to see on their own. They were given an assignment to find a typographer and make a magazine cover and spread with that typographer as the subject. We also wrestled with long documents, cleaning text, creating templates and discussing legibility and white space. Constantly telling them to print their work to evaluate it. Repeatedly asking them to make a minor modification and evaluate how it could some times make a drastic impact on the whole. We also went through the smart functionality of master pages and running headers/footers, tables of contents, footnotes, cross-references, endnotes, layouting forms and much more. I hope one day they may understand, and hopefully reflect on the typography they learned. How do you teach your students what typography is?

Hi all, If anyone is using Adobe programs in Years 7, 8 or 9 with the new National Curriculum, would you mind sharing your ideas? As far as I can see, we need to have a focus on programming. I'd like to see what everyone is doing. I'm going to miss using Photoshop and the like in the Junior Secondary years. Thanks for your help!

Hi Folks! I didn't create this. I got it at an SREB conference I went to, but I find it really useful. I'm attaching the template that I adapted, as well as the original editable file. I hope you all find it useful.
I can't remember but I think I got the University of Washington link from Judy Durkee. I get a lot of stuff from her. She is an AMAZING resource. Thanks Judy!. I also use the article from the Harvard Law Review on Shephard Fairey and the Hope Poster case. They all know the work and the discussion over whether it's a copyright violation or not can be really interesting. It's not as tough a read as you might think and I break up the kids into partners, assign them a section, do a partner read and then report back. IT's easier to scaffold that way. There is an NYT article online that then describes the outcome of the trial.
I'd like to start creating a simple mobile ap that be accessed by both Android and iPhone. Is there a single tool to get me started or do I need the entire education suite? Thanks for your responses in advance
Does anyone teach students the secret ratio or amazing Fibonacci Sequence? How do you approach it?
Literally thousands of public domain media files that you can use in whatever you like. The Public Domain Project The Pond5 site is a little buggy and awkward but totally worth it for these amazing resources.
Design blog DesignMantic has released a new infographic that focuses on the importance of visuals - various aspects of visual communication that designers should take note of, such as iconography, contrast, and hierarchy. Here are some more infographics for: Visual Communication:http://www.designmantic.com/blog/infographics/ten-commandments-of-visual-communication/ Color/ Colour:http://www.designmantic.com/blog/infographics/the-10-commandments-of-color-theory/ Typography:http://www.designmantic.com/blog/infographics/ten-commandments-of-typography/ Logo design:http://www.designmantic.com/blog/infographics/ten-commandments-of-logo-design/ Have fun :-)
Once upon a time, about 20 years ago, Adobe used to have these amazing seminars almost every month promoting or introducing a new software, tip, or how it works with other companies in every city. As a young student, I looked for the opportunity to attend and possible snag some cool door prizes (probably my proudest win was an Adobe t-shirt!)...nowadays, these rarely comes to town anymore? Everything is now online.Or is it just my imagination....
What products or product functions has Adobe discontinued that you would like to see them bring back? For example as a print designer I had to switch to another company's product when they removed JDF functions from Acrobat. Why would they do this when most print providers are using PDF-X? Adobe says not enough Acrobat users were using that feature. PDFs have grown into a hugely diverse tool used to do everything from forms to prefighting. Perhaps it has grown too large...do we need a production platform dedicated to these PDF needs from Adobe?

I am looking for followers. I have found going through a list of followers or by following it easier to find good resources. Thanks!
I would like to gauge the interest level and understanding the best practices in creating print designs and motions graphics with reference to topics in healthcare. Typically creative designers with experience in healthcare are much sought by advertising agencies, either as a full employment or freelancing. I would be able to add meaningful content with relevance to the experience and specific topics. Feel free to ask your queries. By the way, I have learnt by asking from my peers.
