    Creative Problem Solving in Schools Presentation by Adobe Education Jan 22, 2018 Products Adobe Experience Cloud Adobe Creative Cloud Adobe Document Cloud 4.7k 4

    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. To learn more about the study, view the infographic and visit the research study microsite to learn how other educators are teaching these critical skills.

    Templates for creating fake Instagram posts and profiles Digital Asset by Megan Townes Oct 21, 2013 Products Photoshop Photoshop Elements 303k 73

    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!

    Creating a Key Stage 3 Science based self assessment app with Adobe XD. Digital Asset by Greg Hodgson Feb 9, 2018 Products Adobe XD 108 1

    This resource is all about creating a simple app prototype for assessing Key Stage 3 Science. I have opted to focus on photosynthesis but you could use this for any part of the science curriculum. This could also be a fun cross curricula project building digital skills and reinforcing core learning. Either way Adobe XD is easy and fun. What is Photosynthesis? Photosynthesis is the process used by plants and algae to create chemical energy from sunlight. “Almost all life on Earth depends upon this process. Photosynthesis is also important in maintaining the levels of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.” (BBC Bitesize) More about photosynthesis here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/education/guides/zpwmxnb/revision User experience design is the process of enhancing user satisfaction by improving the usability, accessibility, and pleasure experienced during the interaction between the user and the product. In this case we’ll create an assessment app prototype. The first thing we need to consider is what the app will do. We want our students to be able to self assess their level of understanding of photosynthesis (or whatever you decide your theme might be). So let’s start with three key questions that a KS3 science student should know the answer to: What three things do plants need for photosynthesis? (Answer: Carbon Dioxide, Water and Light (A source of energy))What two things do plants make by photosynthesis? (Answer: Glucose and Oxygen)Photosynthesis takes place inside plant cells in small objects called XXXX? (Answer: Chloroplasts) I have created a template that you can edit to suit your needs or to let your students edit. The Adobe XD template can be found here: https://adobe.ly/2GfX4J0 First watch this 2 minute introduction to Adobe XD and interactivity: https://vimeo.com/256430779 Then watch this tutorial about how you might edit the XD template to use for your own Science (or any other subject) assessment tool: https://vimeo.com/256434537 Adobe XD is part of Adobe Creative Cloud, you can find out more here: https://www.adobe.com/uk/products/xd.html Watch this video tutorial to learn more about Adobe XD: https://vimeo.com/219689638 To find out more about Adobe for Schools in the UK, visit the Adobe for Teachers website

    Mobile app prototype Project by Adobe Education Oct 16, 2017 Products Adobe XD 1.3k 0

    Adobe XD is a vector-based tool for designing and prototyping user experiences for web and mobile apps. Designers can use XD to create static designs and turn them into interactive prototypes that simulates the flow of an app. XD also allows designers to share these interactive prototypes with team members, stakeholders, or clients - who can make comments directly on the prototypes. Designers then review these comments to iterate designs, update the prototypes, and resolve the comments. In this project, students will wireframe, design and iterate a mini-portfolio app prototype. They will turn their app into an interactive prototype, share for feedback, test the app, and finalize the design.

    Prototyping and user testing with Adobe XD Lesson Plan by Adobe Education Oct 16, 2017 Products Adobe XD 1.7k 1

    Adobe XD allows designers to create prototypes by adding interactive animations to static designs that simulates the flow of an app. XD also allows you to use a variety of options to share your interactive prototypes with team members, stakeholders, or clients. They can make comments directly on your prototypes so you can easily iterate your design, update the prototype, and resolve their comments. Finally, you can also record the interaction and share a video file with stakeholders. In this activity, students will take an app they designed in XD Design Mode and turn it into an interactive prototype, share for feedback, as well as, test the app and record the interactions.

    ​Story Scaffolding for a "My Creative Journey" Spark Video Presentation by james kinney Aug 31, 2017 Products Adobe Spark 2.0k 4

    This Adobe Spark video introduces students to the basic elements and structure of good storytelling while providing the narrative framework to tell their own unique story about their journeys in creativity. In a sense, I used Spark in a self-referential fashion in order to tell a story about how to structure and tell a story. Teachers can use this same technique to create their own unique narrative scaffolding for any story on a limitless range of subject matter. Imagine using it to guide the student in deconstructing a novel or talking about key points in a scientific process or the solving of a mathematical problem in a novel, creative way.

    2.2k 4

    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.

    #RethinkHighSchool: Start a Business Project by Mike Skocko Jul 19, 2017 Products Adobe Creative Cloud 199 4

    Four years ago I started a discussion on the EdEx titled Employees Only - No Students Wanted. To avoid confusion I added: The idea is more metaphoric than literal. Two years ago I began thinking about the idea literally: Could we actually start a business at school? To make a long story short, after researching the market, networking with the players, discussing it with the students, and finally getting approval from the school and district, we launched Mac Lab Media on January 9, 2017. Less than a week later someone told me about Real World Scholars. Soon thereafter we were accepted into the program (during their first mid-year application window) and I replaced my Rube Goldberg-like edu-solution with Real World Scholar's tested, vetted, 100% legal Ed Corps model. Find more info here. Mac Lab Media is a commercial art foundry. I've replaced the assessment component with the Grit-Based Rubric but this paragraph from Minimum Wage sums up my intent: The ultimate goals, however, have nothing to do with grades. For the Mac Lab, our goal is to become a self-funded learning environment by the 2020/2021 school year. For the students, our goal is to provide the training and experience necessary to launch their own commercial art foundries upon graduation. ----- NOTE: All #RethinkHighSchool resources here on the EdEx rely on the concepts expressed in my (re)Imagine blog post.

    #RethinkHighSchool: Gamifying the Classroom Project by Mike Skocko Jul 18, 2017 Products Adobe Creative Cloud 187 0

    Did you know that a well-designed game leverages Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal Development, Csikszentmihalyi’s Flow, Dweck’s Growth Mindset, and Duckworth’s Grit? I sure didn’t until encountering those surprising connections in month nine of my master’s program in 2011 while working through the introductory quest line at Gamestar Mechanic. Okay, so maybe my digital mentor didn’t reference those researchers directly but the concepts were certainly front and center. Armed with that knowledge, my experience playing World of Warcraft (I was required to play for 10 days) was transformative. After a few days I knew I had to introduce a gamified curriculum delivery system in my classroom. Unfortunately, in May of 2011 there were no viable options to do so (3D Game Lab was still in beta at that point) so my students and I set out to create our own system. Here's a peek at where we are today with Game On, our free WordPress plugin. Whether you opt for a commercial, analog, or even our own system, I urge you to consider how well-implemented game mechanics might enhance your students' experience in your learning environment.

    #RethinkHighSchool: The Series Project by Mike Skocko Jul 18, 2017 Products Adobe Creative Cloud 416 0

    I wrote (re)Imagine in response to the Super School Challenge. Our staff wasn't too excited about my ideas but a few others—including some of the folks from one of the winning schools ($10M grant) who popped by to observe and discuss—have shown interest. The (re)Imagine blog post isn't a plan for the future; it's just one more part of what we're currently doing in the Mac Lab (my classroom). Since virtually everything else I'll be posting will reference information in (re)Imagine, you might as well give it a go if you're interested in rethinking your own learning environment. And who knows, you might even find an idea or two that'll work for you and your students. :) NOTE: If (re)Imagine is in tl;dr territory—it's around a 30 minute read—I apologize but don't know how to work around the issue. According to WordPress, I've made 330 revisions since the article was first published. I actually have tried to be clear and concise but when challenging common sense one must tread with caution so as not to unnecessarily offend the reader. *sigh* Unfortunately, tact isn't one of my strengths. Nor is writing, but I do try. (Dyslexia is such a misunderstood superpower.) I'll be sharing more #RethinkHighSchool resources so you can easily find them on the EdEx. Click on the magnifying glass at the top of the page and search for for RethinkHighSchool (without the #) and you'll find the rest.
