Teachers throughout the country face the challenge of addressing competing priorities. While elementary school teachers have to teach all subject areas, high school kids have to pass high-stakes exit exams to graduate. Technical teachers have to address state frameworks, and all of us recognize the value of Adobe Certification.

With a focus on creativity, Brian and Nicole will share some fun lessons and and project ideas that address them all simultaneously. By combining art and technology into the core curriculum with Adobe tools, we will also give ideas to tailor and modify these projects for various levels and subject areas.
