Adobe ADSC Continued with Monday Morning Impact Contest

Many of you are aware that I am running an Adobe ADSC (Adobe Digital School Collection) contest on my blog and this is one of many chances to get on this innovating event. This blog post will introduce you to the collection suite and the value added of how it can entice your students with being curators of their own digital designs. For contest rules see below for a chance to win an ADSC suite for your classroom. *Just add your blog reflection following this post to automatically be entered into the contest!

The ADSC is comprised of Adobe Photoshop Elements, a tool to edit and enhance your photos. Adobe Premier, a tool to edit and enhance your videos. Adobe Acrobat X, a tool to create PDF communications, eportfolios, collaborate more easily, and streamline reviews.  All of these tools make up a great suite of digital resources to empower your students and you as an educator to create high quality digital products. The tool we will focus on today is Adobe Photoshop Elements and the rich teacher resources to utilize with netbooks in your classroom and quick essential assessment tips.

Let's take a deeper look into Adobe Photoshop Elements through an overview video segment, and all it has to offer. If you are interested in taking it to the next level, tap into the Adobe TV series to advance your skills sets.


Blog Reflection Questions- choose to reflect on- or choose all three. How could you introduce Adobe Photoshop Elements into your classroom practice to make the greatest impact? How can it support visual literacy of all content areas in your classroom? What do you find most rewarding and most challenging with utilizing Adobe Photoshop Elements?

Twitter is My Life Line- What Happens When It Goes Down?

Happy New Year Everyone!

I hope the coming year brings you much joy, relaxation, and fundamental enjoyment around the most important events in your life in the coming new year.  One major event I am looking forward to is our oldest son's wedding in the Caribbean in late Spring. I am so proud of him and his beautiful finance Krissy, they are truly meant to be together- and are so very happy. I am also pleased to say that I am very happy in my life- with my family, work and active lifestyle- and can't wait for the new year to bring much inspired new learning to my everyday adventures. 
Much of my inspired educational learning comes from my PLN of Twitter. Today as I launched my browser then Tweetdeck to welcome the morning with familiar Twitter friends- I was faced with the big blue whale- as this is the symbol that Twitter is over capacity. I thought- no worries- refreshed my browser- and relaunched Tweetdeck once again- but it happened again.  I think I cried a little inside at …

Smartboard Training at the University Level

This week I will be offering Smartboard trainings to our local universities. I have put together a link list of "adult learner" content sites that professors and instructional trainers can easily use with their college students to enrich their curriculum offerings. This is just a "starter list" and I will continue to add to this list as resources are found and shared from others from around the world. Thanks to my social network of Twitter friends for the development of the Smartboard resources as a true global team!

2017 Beginning of the New Year: A Learning Discovery Escapade

The holiday break was very well needed and appreciated, and allowed for me to personally and professionally take a break from my education strategist job and relax with some amazing educational research articles to read- as they have been sitting on the back burner for a few months. Some topics of interest that have caught my interest and full attention is the most recent case studies on our student learning population of Generation Z. Yes, these are the kiddos born from 1995 -2010, and these are the young adults now entering the majestic years of college for the first time or are deeply engaged in a full-time job as their new career.

Did you now that these Gen Z students are completely different than Gen Y? Yet many of our k12 educators, and university professors are still teaching to the knowledge base of Gen Y, and have not caught up to the new learning needs and student interest of this dynamic population. Everything they are learning is through a multi-sensory and multi touch inte…
