Found out today that I have been accepted as an Adobe Education Leader.  This is very exciting for me because I work with many of the Adobe products and will now have an opportunity work with many of the other Adobe Education Leaders and product developers.  Adobe Education Leaders are dedicated to enhancing creativity and collaboration and improving the teaching and learning experience. They share their expertise through workshops and conferences and help develop standards-based curriculum that are used worldwide.  As Adobe updates it products and develops new ones, Education Leaders provide valuable input through beta programs and focus groups. They are among the first to use new technologies in the classroom and establish learning objectives around them.  I will have the opportunity to network with outstanding educators to inspire each other, share ideas, and collaborate. Leaders are classroom teachers, district administrators, technology coordinators, or education consultants.

The Details

Today Mrs. Petty and I met with the high school students only.  We discussed the details of the assignment and the high school students chose which person they would like to research.  Details were presented both about the primary and secondary resources that they would be using.  Field trips and oral history interviews were discussed.  Students were also told about the mobile app that was created for this project.
