Even more great educator projects in the Adobe Educators Choice Awards

There are only a few weeks left in the Adobe The 2011 Educator's Choice Awards awards program for educators. Any educator can enter.

Submissions are excepted until October 14th so get yours in today. Don't forget to check out the projects that have been submitted and vote for your favorite ones!

Here are some more of the great projects that have been submitted. These projects are all by educators and show how creative educators can be in finding great projects for their students. These projects can also be used by other educators in their classroom.

Creature Creation - Photoshop - Pretend you were on a hike deep in the rain forest and a mysterious creature came up to you, what would this creature look like? How would they act? What features do they have? Are they tall, short, plump, skinny, etc…. Nothing about this creature is predetermined. In this lesson students will be asked to sketch out anoriginal creature and scan their images into Photoshop to apply the finishing touches.

Movie Poster Parody Project - Photoshop - A fun project for students who have little to moderate experience using Photoshop. Students search the web to find a movie poster (or DVD cover) to make a parody of.
The important part of this project as a teacher is to stress that "students must create a new document from scratch and emulate the movie to the best of their ability to make it recognizable".

The Zoo Website - Dreamweaver, Photoshop - In this project, students use Dreamweaver to create and advertise their own zoo website. Apart from the design aspect, students must use critical thinking skills in planning the location, operating hours, price, and attractions/animals that they will have in their zoo.
Students will create a custom CSS template with divs and create rollover menu buttons using Photoshop.

Intermediate knowledge of Dreamweaver and Photoshop needed.

Look around the site and check out all of the projects and vote for your favorite.
