Sponsor: Adobe I use Adobe Premiere Rush to teach digital filmmaking in my classroom. I love it because videos and the editing projects move seamlessly between all of my student’s devices. Check out this and other Adobe resources including some from my friend Todd Nesloney on the Education Trailblazers Pinterest board that you can view at coolcatteacher.com/adobepins.
