Exchange Ideas With a Growing Community

The Adobe Education Exchange is a central location for educators to meet, share, discuss, and collaborate on topics of interest to the Adobe education community. K12 and Higher Education faculty and staff can share and receive recognition for their teaching and learning resources and search for specific resources by subject, grade level, software product, and resource type. Educators can share best practices, discuss and collaborate around topics of interest, and gain inspiration for using Adobe software in the classroom in innovative ways.

There are numerous benefits associated with becoming a member of the Adobe Education Exchange.  Share lesson plans, class projects, technical tutorials, background materials, and other resources and get feedback and recognition from the community on your content. Discover new methods for teaching and learning, best practices for using Adobe software in the classroom, and guidance on a range of education topics. Find the best resources for preparing for new courses and projects or learning the skills you need to teach using Adobe software. Connect and collaborate with innovative educators in your field. Network with other educators that share your interests and start a dialogue on the topics you’re thinking about and exploring.

There are many exciting projects that have been uploaded recently to the community.  See how collaboration between high school and elementary resulted in the creation of imagery for video and an accompanying digital/print books to retell their story of the ancient Greek myth of Pandora's BoxFantasy Newscast gets students to create their own audio newscast to learn about live reporting, editing, and adding sound effects to bring their newscasts to life while learning creative writing, recording and producing skills.  You can also check out the Titration of Acids& Bases – Molecular Theory game.  This game provides and excellent example of how you can use Flash to create an interactive visualization of an abstract concept.  Science teachers can use this game to help their students learn what a titration actually looks like at the molecular level.  Students shoot titrant molecules at the sample molecules to see how molecular changes affect the titration curve.

These are just a few examples of activities that can be found at the Adobe Education Exchange.  Become a member for free today to access resources, discuss Adobe software applications for learning, upload your projects to the community.
