Do Adobe-related projects/products help students engage in learning material or only in learning the Adobe functions?? I love technology when it is used as a tool, not so much as the purpose!
This training plan will try to answer the question "How Photoshop increases student engagement in the classroom?". It will give focus on the importance of having appropriate visual media to complement instruction in the classroom. The training will also give importance of the role of image editing software like Photoshop to modify and easily create visual media to effectively deliver classroom instruction. Graphic design elements and principles will included to crate strong, effective visual media to promote student engagement. After the end of 180 minutes session, the participants will be able to: 1. identify the different parts of Photoshop workspace 2. identify the basic elements and principles of graphic design 3. use Photoshop basic tools 4. use basic layer techniques 5. effectively use Photoshop to create strong and engaging poster images 6. appreciate the importance of image editing tools, like Photoshop, in education through creating a poster or visual aid 7. apply creativity in creating a classroom poster on Standing Against Bullying.
This 3 hour training is designed to help educators create a connection to learners using Adobe Captivate. Educators become familiar with the basic functionality of this product as they design a tool that makes them more accessible in online environments.
Have you noticed the difference between students’ engagement using inquiry- or project-based learning? Share stories and examples of the difference it has made in your classroom. This discussion post is part of the Adobe Education Exchange Professional Development workshop, Creativity in Today’s Classrooms: Designing Creativity in the Upper Grades Curriculum.
Hello Educators! I am sure everyone has sat in a boring meeting or professional learning session in the past where the presenters would just talk and read off the slides they have up on the screen for hours on end.. I was hoping to seek exciting strategies and ideas to engage staff during professional learning sessions. What successful strategies have you used in the past to engage with staff? How did you measure their engagement?
The "flipped classroom" is a very popular trend in education at the moment. More and more teachers are using online video/multimedia content as a prerequisite for lessons, allowing class time to be opened up for more constructivist engagement. This type of approach seems particularly well suited to technology/design disciplines which require both hard skills (hardware, software etc.) and soft skills (critical awareness, collaboration, teamwork etc.). I am currently researching this area and was just wondering if anyone is actually currently using this approach in their tech/design classroom, as I am?

Gamificaion is an interesting concept which may increase learner engagement and retention. This course is intended to allow educators to consider the elements required for ramification of a course by exploring the elements of a successful program, duoLingo. The resource provided is a PPT with screen captures from duoLingo. An instructor could introduce Ps, Ai, or other Adobe programs and allow participants to crate their own ramification elements after discussing the PPT. If desired, instructors can create their own video using the PPT to supplement their instruction.

This is a presentation that I will be delivering to staff at my school as part of a 'Twilight Session' Series for professional development. The aim of this session it to inform and inspire educators to begin thinking of ways to design learning environments. In education, we often spend a lot of time planning and changing what we teach (the content and curriculum). We also invest money in how we teach (smart board's, laptops and devices) while neglecting where we teach (the classroom environment). At a time where students are becoming more difficult to engage in the classroom, more restless, more social and easily distracted, we need to think about the place in which they spend the majority of their day – the classroom environment. Using art, design and technology we can create innovative and engaging learning environments that are aesthetically designed, to trigger positive emotional attachments to spaces. This will allow for understanding, recall and recognition, engagement, problem solving, and communication.? As each generation changes, we need to ensure that we are designing learning experiences that support engage, ignite and inspire each generation of students.
Hello All! The following resource is something I put together during the Adobe Education Leadership Summit 2016 held at the Adobe office in Sydney, Australia. It serves as a quick guide and overview into the possibilities of Sketchnoting in supporting learning and teaching. I have been teaching and encouraging all my students to utilise visual thinking when making notes and there has been an overwhelmingly positive response to this mode of learning with significantly increased levels of student engagement, understanding and creative thinking. Sketchnoting is a visual notetaking system which focuses on encapsulating big ideas in a visual form, utilising a combination of typography, signs, symbols and shapes to help facilitate learning and teaching. Here is a link to the resource which explains the process of sketchnoting including a range of student examples as well! Created using Adobe Spark - Sketchnoting - An Introduction to Visual Notetaking Thanks! Feel free to connect with me @misterAOY on Twitter or Instagram or if you'd like to see and learn more!
Do you have a favorite animated or interactive presentation that really helps student learn? What media would you like to be able to create with Animate for your teaching? This discussion post is part of the Adobe Education Exchange Professional Development workshop Up and Running with Adobe Animate CC.
After years of being relegated to “nice to have” status, the arts are now recognized as both a vital component of a complete education and a strategic tool for targeting a wide range of school challenges and opportunities. How are you using creativity and the arts as a catalyst for change in your classroom and/or your school? What do you see as the key opportunities? What challenges have you faced and how have you overcome them? If you're going to SXSWedu 2016, join a group of talented educators and advocates for art education to hear examples of how the arts are having an impact on school-wide issues like attendance and parent engagement, as well as the issues students face like building self-confidence and addressing conflict. Speakers: Robert Hoang - Art Instructor, Hayward Unified School District; Sherri Kushner - Media Arts Teacher/Adobe Education Leader, Chute Middle School; Malissa Shriver - Executive Director, Turnaround Arts: California. Date and time: Monday, March 7, 2016; 1:30 PM – 3:30 PM CST

No matter the focus of our individual curricula, it seems to me that the most important lesson must revolve around student engagement. After all, if students are uninterested or unmotivated, what's the point? Yes, we can say that those students have chosen to fail but isn't it our job -- be it fair or not -- to reach as many students as possible?
