Greetings Everyone- Tis' the season to celebrate and enjoy the holidays in the months of December and January. The holidays can bring much holiday cheer for many and some unsuspected surprises as well. I would like to add to that list of unsuspected but pleasant holiday surprises with sharing some unique and new learning opportunities for all of you that will take place over the next 6-8 weeks.
I have been asked to be part of the Adobe Influencer community with many unique educators this past year. Adobe Influencers include innovative thinkers and designers consisting of administrators, educators and teacher leaders. I must say this is a privilege and honor to learn from a team of forward thinking individuals from around the nation. As part of being an Adobe Influencer, we do have the opportunity to test drive some creative Adobe design tools and share our critical feedback of how we would us these resources to enrich the classroom experience and assist our presentation and marketing strategies. Because of this, I am one of several over the next few months that will be running a holiday educator classroom transformation design contest, and- YES- will be giving away an Adobe Digital School Collection suite to one lucky reader with an associated blog reflection on my blog.
The contest rules are as follows:
1. Take a moment to read my updated blog post each week on Monday's - noted as "Adobe Monday Morning Impact Series" found at http://www.naomiharm.org and investigate and dabble in the provided Adobe educational links.
2. Reflect on your learning takeaways through a replied blog post to my Monday morning postings. Your name will be automatically entered each week for each response in our grand finale drawing on January 15th. The winning blogger will be posted on my blog and tweeted out.
3. Respond to other blog readers through my blog to extend their learning, ask thought provoking questions, pose learning scenarios, and provided guided insight to how you would use the ADSC suite in your classroom or workplace environment. That's it, no strings attached- to share your collective intelligence with others and possibly winning an Adobe multimedia collection to impact your teaching and learning environment with students and/or adult learners.
Take a test drive this week through the following embedded Adobe TV video clips to see first hand how this suite of software can transform your classroom engagement and your student's digital production outcomes. Here is all the associated Adobe blog with more detail about the suite, and a wealth of teacher lessons and resources to inspire your new designs and digital projects with your students. ENJOY!!!
Happy blogging and reflecting and I look forward to your thought provoking conversations and reflections around classroom design transformation, eportfolio development, digital storytelling, and possibly flip teaching production video segments, which all can be developed and implemented with the ADSC suite.
