Explore amazing examples of student digital media projects, and learn how to leverage these examples to inspire your students to be more creative.
This project is to encourage students to learn more about the many careers that include science, technology, engineering, art, and math. By allowing students to see many current careers and letting them hone in one a few that peaks their interest, students will not only learn about the career, but gain direction on what schooling, salary, work environment, etc. each of the careers include. Description STEAM Website by Wall High School Students Students will first use the internet to search for STEAM careers. Once they have a list, they can then use the Ferguson's database to research each of the careers. Students will select five STEAM careers. They will research an overview of each of these careers. Based upon their findings which they have posted in a Google Doc, they will select their most favorite from the five. They will then conduct more detailed research of this favorite STEAM career; again adding their findings to their Google Doc. Once they have obtained more detailed information on the career such as schooling, workplace environment, description of a day in that career, job description, hiring potential, and potential salaries, students will then be videoed while describing their chosen career. Videos will be shared via the STEAM website.
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.

Here is a series of project ideas designed to help students research and imagine different career paths in STEAM, keeping in mind that the workplace is continually evolving due to technology. They look at traditional careers and how technology has and is changing those vocations. They can look at the positives and the negatives. These can be compiled as written report but can then be presented as an infographic.Students draft interview questions, film and edit interviews with people working in STEAM. This could be done in person or over video conference.Students compile a gallery of work by contempory new media artists. They can look at how artists are 'playing' with technology, which is part of the design process.At the end of each project students could as part of their reflections consider what career the skills they used relates to. For example when students have created a website they can consider the career of a web designer and look at how that connects to their interests. Another example is when students are Rapid Prototyping with 3D printing they can consider both Industrial Design and Engineering.A quick question for students to consider in engaging with the concept of 'Art' being a part of STEAM is; 'Is Theo Jansen an artist or engineer?'. Students work would be compiled into a Muse website.
This is a group for educators who prepare students for careers in creative industries.
A self reflection on creativity, designed to improve the creative self and re-purpose how Teachers and Trainers self assess.
In this webinar series, our wonderfully talented Adobe Education Community members will inspire you, and your students, by sharing their own experiences in the creative classroom. Each presenter will open their classroom door and give you a view of their creative teaching process. You’ll learn how they develop, implement, and assess creative activities in their classroom. They'll inspire you to include creative activities in your curriculum. During each hour long session we’ll start by getting to know the presenter through an interview. We will then walk you through the planning, implementation and assessment of their creative learning activity. You’ll also learn technical tips and tricks to make using Adobe software a success in your classroom. Our presenter for this session is Renaldo Lawrence, Adobe Education Leader and Advanced Skills Teacher at the Chiswick School in London. Presenter Renaldo Lawrence teaches and develops interactive learning resources at Chiswick School in London, England. As part of this work, he collaborates with teachers from across the school using their curriculum to create interactive multimedia content. He also consults and trains across the U.S. and Europe on how to create and use digital media, web design, and eLearning applications in the classroom. Renaldo is an Adobe Education Leader, Lynda.com Author, Apple Distinguished Educator, Microsoft Innovative Educator and Educator Trainer, Lecturer at Westminster Universities in London and an Advanced Skills teacher. He holds a masters in education.
This project was built on top of the topic presented on the "Introduce the Creativity Process to Your Students" (https://edex.adobe.com/resource/d17598/#). This exercise takes the students through the Creative Process in one day (compressed), with a problem to solve. The key is to demonstrate how a design process feels like. Forcing the students to take a deliberate practice of the creative process, by breaking each task to be performed for a limited time. Ideally suited for classes where you can form at least 3 teams of 4 to 5 members. With a maximum of 5 teams to avoid chaos. The team will go through each step: 1. Framing the Question2. Gather Information3. Incubate4. Explore Variations5. Rank and Combine6. Refine Solution7. Receive Feedback To finish off the day, the facilitator will describe how this process is similar to other known design process.
This lesson plan and associated technical tutorials provide a suggested approach to addressing bullying in your classroom by getting students to create original works of digital art that can be shared as part of the international Bully Project Mural site. Be sure to complete the free online professional development workshop, Take a Creative Stand Against Bullying, before teaching this lesson.
How are you preparing your students for the creative economy? What do you define as the "creative economy"? During SXSWedu 2016, educators Erica Muhl, Mark Martin, and Villy Wang will be engaging in this question. See below for their session info. Join the discussion by sharing your own thoughts and examples in this discussion. Are Your Students Ready for the Creative Economy? Tuesday, March 8 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM CST Description: According to the Department of Labor, 65% of current students will spend their careers in jobs that have yet to be invented. To succeed in tomorrow’s workforce, we must equip students with the kind of skills that will never appear on a standardized test — creativity, adaptability, collaborative decision-making and problem-solving. In this session you will hear from experts who are approaching this type of education in a variety of ways. Then, we will challenge you to work in small groups to define other strategies for how we can ensure our students are ready for the creative economy. Speakers: Erica Muhl - Dean of the USC Roski School of Fine Arts, Executive Director of the USC Iovine & Young Academy Mark Martin - Urban Teacher Villy Wang - Founder/President & CEO of BAYCAT **Organized in collaboration with Adobe Edu, Autodesk and Prezi
Sometimes teachers who've been teaching for years seem to irgnore the creative talent that kids of about 12-14 years of age because they mix up the efforts of the younger ones with their own expectations. Since I am NOT a design teacher, but a teacher for foreign languages I've been experiencing this impression among my colleagues well enough. Not many of us have the chance to see kids outside the classroom in a completely different learning environment. I am now running a Photoshop-club and have a couple of kids I teach both in English and Photoshop. The difference is striking. The same kids who get bored when the must read a text, write grammar exercises gut fully inspired when they can put on the computer and start working with Photoshop. Our curriculum will surely be like the curriculum for any Photoshop class, I am sure. What makes it special for them is that after some technical training (photography training, non-distructive work in Photoshop, basic tools (brushes and so on), layers, masks, selections and channels), - they first got a series of photos (taken from Pixabay / Pinterest) that they could choose one of in order to edit them the way they wanted applying the techniques that were avalaible to them and familiar with, - then they had to select two or more photos, decide on their own which one would fit their final result a collage (what they were not aware of when they started) - they now have a time-limit of about only 45 minutes to select images and make on image out of many. The teachers of the "traditional" art classes told me ok, they like painting and drawing sketches, but they have no real understanding or even an eye for complicated collages. Apparently it must be different in Photoshop. The kids work seperated from each other and they know that the clock is set when they start working. The only thing that is causing trouble is the fact that the euqipment (poor mice, no artpads) is giiving them a hard time. When the bell rings and the time is over they have to stop and show their "product" to the others and make a short statement on their image. This trains their ability to develop strategies in presenting things and an astetic cometence, apart from the fact that they get more self-confident about themselves when they do it. I just want them to know and tell the other kids what this image means to them and how they proceeded to get to that point so that the others might gain more ideas next time. Yet, my problem is always having an answer available when they ask what is the best image or am I better than XY ? In that case, I prefer saying : The only thing I objectively say is : How good is the technical quality (selection - masks - order of layers, etc. ) and then I would recomment saying:"I do not prefer the artistic value of any image here, but I can say this selection is perfect, the masking is perfect here and so on and forth. But as long as you are satisfied with what you've done and created everything is fine. At the end of the term all images will be printed and in a kind of exhibition all children can have a look at them in the school hall, and you can look at the reaction of the other kids in order to decide how good or bad the effect of your images on other kids is." The wonderful thing about Photoshop here is that you can start working with it very soon, you can exeriment, and can develop creative abilities and ambition. I would never say that I teach the kids to be creative, because I am convinced that creativitiy is deeply rooted in any kid, we can just have todig it and make it available for themselves and everybody else. (A wonderful footnote here is that sooner or later the same kids asked me, when will we be woking with other Adobe apps ?- The thing is that they told me that they see photos in magazines or advertisements with dfferent eyes because they now are familiar now with the basic manipulatoin techniques and want to learn more.)
Video recording of a talk I gave about the Creative Process, developed after a year long project to create something every day.
As part of the 2016 Adobe APAC Summit I was asked to present something that we have been using at our Campus for a couple of years. It is called the Creative Checklist and it is aimed at engaging students in the creative process as well as giving them the skills to use Adobe tools in the greater classroom environment. The presentation outlines the checklist and how I implement it at classroom level. The link to the presentation is below: http://livestream.com/WilkarProductions/AdobeLeade...
Educators on the Adobe Education Exchange who’ve created a Creative Teaching Profile have leveraged their expertise within the AEE community to become thought leaders. Their participation in the community has led other members to seek out their work, follow them, collaborate with them and rate and use their resources. In turn, their leadership has earned them admittance into Adobe Education’s specialized communities, where they can network with other leading educators. Beyond the AEE community, these leading educators have leveraged their profiles to showcase their expertise and become school leaders, present at conferences and create an audience to share their points of view via social media outlets. Do you think creating a Creative Teaching Profile is worthwhile? What benefits do you think will come of it? What ideas do you have to start creating your Creative Teaching Profile? (This discussion post is part of the Adobe Education Exchange Professional Development Workshop, Up & Running on the Adobe Education Exchange.)
This is my creative process explained, and I designed this presentation as a tool for present and future creatives, in order to help them define their creative process.
I am a first-year teacher, and I am beginning my Multimedia (Video production / photography) segment. I'm very excited to be teaching this class as it is what I've been doing professionally for nearly 20 years. I am looking for some creative hands-on project ideas to do with high schoolers of varying experience levels. If you have any links, suggestions, or research opportunities, please let me know! Thanks a bunch.

The Adobe Digital Careers Teaching Resources have been redesigned and updated for Creative Cloud. The resources include four project-based curriculums that develop career and communication skills in the areas of web design and development, graphic design and print and digital media publication, animation and interaction design, and video production using Adobe Creative Cloud tools. All four curriculums are aligned to the Adobe Certified Associate exams. New with this version, the resources have been redesigned so they can more easily be used to build or supplement your own custom curriculum. In addition to curriculums and projects, the resources now feature short, task-based activities that, while used to make up the larger projects in the Adobe curriculums, can also be used to teach discreet project management, design, research and communication, and technical skills as you see fit. Are you planning on using the Adobe Digital Careers Teaching Resources for Creative Cloud or are you already using them? Join the discussion here and share your plans for using the resources with your students, your experience teaching with them, and your thoughts on how we can continue to update and improve them. Thanks for your feedback! UPDATE: We recently published the first of a two part workshop on how to use the Adobe Digital Careers curriculum. Check it out here and stay tuned for the publication of Part 2.
To help the Art Heroes Faculty and Students, a group of instructors and myself have undertaken the impossible task of narrowing down the best creative resources online for design, photography, film, animation, etc. While purposefully not comprehensive, the Creative Arsenal is my attempt at a easily navigatable index of high-quality video lectures, tutorials, periodicals, etc. that could benefit alomst any digital media instructor. So come for the Creative Arsenal . . . and stay to join Art Heroes and our mission to creative for causes! http://art-heroes.org/creative-arsenal Kevin (Ps If you have a website or resource to add, please let me know! email@example.com
Great video that Adobe published inspiring the creative spirit.
