Putting the Spark In Our Classrooms Through Creation and Design FILLING

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity filling up

Our education system has been designed to create consumer style education for our students. However, as our economy and world evolve, we must capitalize on transforming our classrooms into learning centers full of students who can create and design. In this session, we will focus on remixing our classrooms where students become creators and designers showcasing their learning in powerful ways using Adobe Spark, Google Suite, and related tools.

To better facilitate our limited time, if you are able, please sign up for an Adobe Spark account using the following directions below:
  1. Sign up for an Adobe Spark Account (if you do not already have one) at https://spark.adobe.com.  The account is free.  Right now Adobe Spark is offering a 2 month upgrade to premium for free.  I would encourage you to NOT sign up for the premium upgrade and use the free version for now.  The free version should be enough.
  2. Once you create your account, I encourage to download Adobe Spark products to your phone, tablet, or iPad.  Adobe Spark is accessed through a website on the computer / laptop.  However on a mobile device like a phone, tablet, or iPad,  you have to download three separate apps:  Spark Post, Spark Page, Spark Video.  Adobe Spark is used to create graphics, movies, and websites.  We will explore graphics and movies during our session.  When used on the phone, tablet, or iPad, you will be able to do more with the graphics and make them animated.
