The Adobe Education Technologies blog presents a fantastic new resource for faculty teaching digital video. The new Video Production Resource Center is a robust collection of sample projects, curriculum, professional development resources, tips & tricks, and more. You can also access video production resources for students with a wealth of free tutorials and inspiration from work created by their peers.
With Adobe Flash Player integration within the new Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro and Adobe Reader 9, PDF files can become far more than static documents and forms. PDF portfolios (which are special types of PDF files) can be created to deliver a wide range of engaging multimedia content to include music, photos, movies, Flash (SWF and FLV) content, 3D content, and much more. The interface used to experience the PDF portfolio content is a Flash-based navigator with different layouts. Steve Adler (Adobe Acrobat Specialist for Education) has a fantastic blog article explaining how to create PDF portfolios and their possible uses in K-12 and Higher Education environments. Below I have provided five PDF portfolio examples which you can download and view offline using the free Adobe Reader 9 or a trial version of Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro. Examples include:
Once you have viewed these PDF portfolios, try creating one yourself using Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro. You can use Steve Adler’s blog article as a guide or watch a recorded webinar. Also, there are new PDF portfolio navigator layouts you can download and start using for your projects.
Happy New Year to everyone!
The purpose of this Adobe technologies in education article is to bring to your attention federal (United States) funding resources for
educational technology software and curriculum-related integration for K-12 schools and districts. With schools and districts facing severe budget cuts, these government programs may be an alternative way to secure funding for Adobe technology to provide faculty professional development and prepare students with a 21st century skillset.
Visit the Adobe funding resources for education page to learn more about the various government funding programs and which Adobe solutions are eligible
for one or more of these funding sources.
