Adobe Education Leader Impact Award

I haven’t really talked about this much; but in January, I was awarded an “Adobe Education Leader Impact Award” by Adobe Systems, Inc. and the great group of people who work on Adobe’s education team. Now that I’ve received the (quite handsome!) plaque, I want to make mention of it here in a spirit of gratitude and thanksgiving. I’m honored to be named and such and hope that I can continue to contribute to the community in a manner befitting a declaration such as this!

Reflections on the 2009 Adobe Education Leader Summer Institute

The 2009 Adobe Education Leader Summer Institute in now over and my intention is to document a few thoughts here while everything is still fresh in my mind. About 80 Adobe Education Leaders from both K-12 and Higher Education institutions from around the world gathered at Adobe HQ in San Jose, CA for 5 days of networking, presentations, training, and corporate roadmaps. I’ve only been involved in this group since November of last year, so this was the first time I had personally attended this event.

I’m an Adobe Certified Associate

While at the Adobe Education Leader Summer Institute this past week, I had the opportunity to take some certification exams along with my fellow AELs.

If you’ve been using any of the products for a good amount of time, you probably don’t even need to study for the ACA exams. They are fairly straightforward and contain a mix of multiple choice questions and product interface simulations that you must perform. A pretty slick system! Adobe
