In the internet age…teachers don’t need to create content they need to use implement it.
I like when I open an educational door expecting one thing and find something else…completely unexpected, but wonderful. When I registered for this course through Adobe Education Exchange, I assumed it would be focused on Adobe’s iconic image editor, Photoshop. When it became clear the focus was Lightroom—particularly the new web-based Lightroom CC—I’ll admit to being a bit disappointed. I’d worked with Lightroom before. The desktop version is a standard of professional photographers and is a powerful platform for organizing photos, batch editing, and making quick adjustments. Lightroom CC takes that functionality to the Web and mobile devices.
Photography is a true love. With the tools and amazing smartphone cameras of today, we are truly in a golden age of photography. Seems like photo-literacy is a skill that should be built into our curriculum from an increasingly young age. We are educating a generation of media consumers like never before. They should be literate in the media that dominates their world.
Since ancient times, finding a way to keep and share knowledge has been a goal of mankind. From the wet clay cuneiform of the Sumerians, to sheets of papyrus of the Egyptians, to the parchment scrolls of the Hebrews, to moveable type of Gutenberg’s printing press…these methods gave mankind the ability to share ideas with people of their day, and with generations to come. They weren’t, however, tools for the masses. Only the intellectual elite and wealthy had the opportunity to participate in this extended conversation.
The technology explosion of the past 20+ years has opened the sharing of ideas and production of professional quality printing to anyone with a Web-connected device. We teach our students to read and write. In this era, they should also know how to take their ideas and put them into an interesting and compelling format.
This course from Adobe Education Exchange gave me the opportunity to explore some more advanced features of Adobe InDesign. I’ve known this software since it was called PageMaker. It is a truly powerful and flexible tool for creating media not only for print, but also for the Web. I was particularly surprised by the ability to create PDF documents with animation and interactivity. Check out my learning journal from the class to see more.
Pretty devious of the Google Innovator folks to have applications for LAX18 come due just as the school year is winding down with all the craziness that goes with the end of the year.
I’m hoping the third time will be the charm for me. I like my idea for my Innovation Project…not sure it comes out in the 90 second video. Basically, I’d like to provide resources and a gathering place for teachers and students to develop and polish their skills with images and video. Check out my application video below (as well as my two previous attempts).
Just completed the Graphics and Illustration course from Adobe Education Exchange. This was my second class with Adobe EdEx and once again it was a great experience.
Illustrator is a application that I had never felt comfortable with. Since I started my Adobe journey with Photoshop, it was always difficult to think vector rather than raster. I can now say that the pen tool and I are on speaking terms…friends even!
Check out the learning journal to see the various projects. Squeezing projects in amidst the craziness of teaching wasn’t always easy, but we do the best we can in the time we have.
