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.

I am curious to know how others are teaching Adobe CC (specifically Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign) without relying on the books to teach the students? Also, what project based assignments/tests are others using?
I recently read a great book on the impact of games by Jane McGonigal called Reality is Broken Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change The World. I'd highly recommend this book especially because as educators, we are teaching a generation of college students who are very familiar with the world of games. I'd also recommend watching her TED talks for those who are interested! I'm wondering if anyone has any other recommendations for reading about games and psychology, game design or game-based learning? I'd also love to hear what your thoughts are on game-based learning, and how you would like to incorporate games as a learning tool in the classroom (if you already have, how you're using games to enhance learning!). Looking forward to hearing form others :)

Project-based learning (PBL) is a great way to deepen student learning. Graduate student Andrew Shensky partnered with a local middle school teacher to create a PBL experience for students exploring science and nutrition. This Adobe Spark Page summarizes the project and highlights this innovative approach to learning.
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.
What has been your experience with project-based learning as a student? As an educator? How can project-based learning approaches make it easier for educators to integrate the arts into STEM classrooms? How have you seen project-based learning work in STEM and STEAM classrooms? What are some of your favorite sources for ideas for project-based learning curricula and inspiration? This discussion topic is linked to the Adobe Education Exchange Professional Development workshop, Integrating the Arts into STEM 201: Creating Rigorous and Relevant STEAM Projects.

This project was designed as a collaboration between Los Gatos High School English teacher Tiffany Hamm and Los Gatos-Saratoga Union High Schools District Technology Integration Specialist Nicole Dalesio. As part of an interdisciplinary Social Justice course, Tiffany and Nicole challenged students to create these striking images to highlight inspirational and historically-significant quotations. Each student created his or her own poster using Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Spark Post. Then, Tiffany and Nicole printed the posters and displayed them around the school campus. The goal was to both assess student learning about content-area themes, and to raise awareness on campus about the importance of social justice. For more information on this project, visit the Adobe Education Exchange.

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!
