In this project, students use Adobe Creative Cloud to design and create two emojis—a Disney character and an unrelated historical person. Using the emojis as avatars, they write a fictional text message dialogue conversing about a topic of mutual interest. What would Elsa and Al Gore discuss? Or Nemo and Jacques Cousteau? The goal is for students to communicate their understanding of their chosen characters in a fun, creative and visual way. Learning Objectives Use Adobe Creative Cloud to create Disney character and historical person emojisWrite a text message dialogue using the emojis as avatarsPresent the dialogue and reflect on their learning Note: this project was originally provided to use in conjunction with a Disney and Adobe emoji contest (February - March 2017), but is now optimized for use with many different audiences and settings.
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.
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.
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
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.

"Take A Stand" Project pd editing images example Objective: You are to go through the typical design process to create a poster about a documentary on an event from the Civil Rights movement in the United States. Introduction For this project you will be role playing – you are pretending you are a designer for a graphics design firm. Your firm just got a contract to design a poster for a public television program entitled, "Take a Stand". You have been assigned to make this poster. The program is a documentary on the Civil Rights movement in the United States. The documentary goes through the events and effects of the Civil Rights movement from the 1950's through the 1960's. It is being produced by Public Broadcasting System (PBS) and will be shown on channel 58. The documentary is planned to be aired (shown) next year starting on January 15th -- the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

A common core aligned geometry lesson curated and altered to support 21st century learning skills. Students will learn first about calculating the surface area of a polyhedra (they should have been exposed to this concept prior to this lesson but not completely necessary) and then draw and create a "net." Students will identify using key vocabulary, the necessary parts of the polyhedra and manipulate several virtual nets and shapes. Students will work in teams to create several paper versions of geometric shapes and finally after watching tutorials, make one in the Adobe product of their choice. Students will finalize their lesson and display their understanding of polyhedra in a final written essay, which should include a picture of their finished polyhedra.

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!

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!
I teach a Commercial Photography course to high school juniors and seniors. While I'm really good at giving informal feedback when I'm walking around the classroom and looking over students' shoulders, I'm always looking for ways to give more in depth feedback on digital files without printing out a sheet of paper and writing on it. I've tried all sorts of stuff including making Notes in Photoshop, editing the metadata of photos, turning photos into PDFs and commenting on the side. So far, I have yet to find a method that has felt satisfactory. This year, I'm planning on having students upload their assignments to Canvas (our LMS) and giving grades/writing short pieces of feedback there, but I wanted to check in and see if anyone else that teaches a digital media course has found or created a feedback method that they swear by.
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.
