Adobe Digital School Collection Contest! #EdChat

Hello everyone! I have an awesome contest I am happy to bring to all of my readers.

As you know, Adobe Digital School Collection is designed to give students access to great Adobe tools. The tools are:
With these tools, students create some amazing projects. Teachers would have great flexibility to create cool lessons that would allow students to flex their creativity muscles. Here are the details for my contest:
In the comment portion below, leave a detailed lesson you would create using ADSC. The more creative, the better! Also, please leave a way for me to contact you if you win. This could be a Twitter handle or an email address. I want to make sure that the winner gets their prize. At the end on one week (January 20), I will shrink the number of submissions to five and let my readers vote on my site for the most creative lesson. After one week (January 27) of voting, the highest number of votes wins! The winner will receive a copy of ADSC for their school. 

It's that simple! Tell your friends and see what types of great lessons people could create using Adobe software.

If you are looking for more than one way to win ADSC, check out Naomi Harm and her contest.

Good luck and get planning!


  1. Thanks to Adobe photoshop I could do this! Reinvent superheroes.

  2. Check out what I do with Adobe

  3. Trying to wrap my mind around Adobe products. Greg

  4. With ADSC, the possibilities are endless for my elementary students! Check out how we'll use the ADSC to challenge popular myths about what a family looks like.


  5. This contest is exciting. Creating original graphics (sprites) in my video game design and development course is an integral part of the process. Teams work together to create video games and I allow students to take different roles (i.e. sound engineer, graphic designer, programmer). Photoshop would greatly enhance the experience for the graphic designers and help my students to create high quality sprites for their games.

    Premier Elements would be a GREAT tool for both my students and myself. I create many video tutorials for my students (and the greater online community) to demonstrate how to use the tools to make video games. Premier would allow me to edit videos and organize them beautifully. For students, they could create videos to serve as 'cut scenes' in their games to help them create a professional looking game.

    Thanks for considering me!


  6. My class is creating and authoring a lot of original content. The ADSC would provide students another opportunity to learn a different tool in which they could continue to create and share.

    Something we have not done, but I would like to do, is to create our own CC photo archive. As part of our discussions on Digital Citizenship, we look at various CC tools that assist us in choosing images (for our work) that provide us with the proper permissions. But we don't always find what we want, and often the content isn't produced from the perspective of an elementary student. We would then use Photoshop and Premiere to create images and short clips of CC content that could then be used by other classrooms and individuals around the world.

    And we use Macs.

  7. I would have my students research animals and then become the animal by inserting their image onto the animals body. Next they would write about their life as the animal in first "animal" person. I would take their pages and bind them into a Classroom Zoo Book. This is an activity that could be expanded to include scientists, inventors, or explorers.

    Thanks for the opportunity to apply.
