Today Adobe is announcing a public beta of the all new Lightroom 4, available as a free download from its website until the full version goes on sale in "early 2012." This release includes major changes to existing photo management, editing, and sharing features, while adding in tons of new features as well. The release is also the first to drop support for Windows XP, though it still works with Windows Vista, Windows 7, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, and Mac OS X Lion. Interestingly, however, it doesn't work in Lion's native full-screen mode

Free atomic learning on creating eportfolios with Adobe Acrobat X from Atomic Learning.
One of the things I have as my "big three" this year is the concept of a paperless portfolio using adobe acrobat pro. I'm a member of Adobe ed exchange and am using it to find all kinds of great resources. This page has links to best practices for eportfolios, digital assessment, as well as streamlining admin tasks. Useful resources. The cool thing is you can annotate with video, audio, an text and pdfs move very well onto ipads and devices like that.
