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?

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…

SchoolNet South Africa Conference Reflections

Well....I am back, back after being gone for a week of travel and presenting in Bloemfontein, South Africa to present at the national SchoolNet SA Conference. I was thrilled to be asked back for the third time by good friends Gerald Roos and Janet Thomson from School Net.

It is always an adventurous journey to travel to South Africa, as there is no direct flight of how to get there- but the longest part of the journey is the flight from Atlanta, Georgio to Johannesburg, South Africa of 17 hours. The total air travel and airport exchanges take about 24-30 hours one way.  So.... yes I am one tired girl today, but I have a few days to catch up on my sleep and acclimate back to the 7 hour time change.

Upon my arrival to the Bloemfontein, South Africa I was greeted by the most lovely Janet Thomson, Executive Director of SchoolNet, who assisted me with my transportation to the hotel we would be staying at, and to also preview the venue of the conference location. This year's conference wa…

Reenergize and Refocus This Summer- Change Your Mindset!

It has been a whirlwind of a month already and it is only June 3rd. It has been an amazing week working with my Intel family in Phoenix, AZ. The experience to design, create and contribute to the greater good of the future of education has filled my edtech bucket. I am so very thankful and grateful to Vanessa Jones, Theresa Maves, Anne Batey, the entire Big Monocol team and Lars Lindstrom's video crew as a collaborative team we worked on an incredible upcoming video segment to support a game-infused learning series of online coursework. Cannot share any more at this time- but this content will be a game-changer of how we deliver ongoing professional development in the education world. 
Working with inspired educators and incredible talented videographers has truly grounded me again this week, knowing that there are individuals in the edtech industry that constantly give 200%, never complain and contribute to a finalized product that will impact so many in so many countries worldwi…
