  • Spark Digital Creativity With the Hottest New Tool

    Posted by Elizabeth Hancock on 4/17/2018

    Adobe recently launched a free education version of their Spark product. This tool is for visual story telling through videos, posts, and pages. Students can log in using their Google accounts. We are most excited about the possibility of using Spark to edit student created video projects. The posts tool can be used like Canva to create graphics. There is much to learn about this promising tool. If you try it, please let us know what you think.

All of the participants left with activities planned to implement with their students in the near future.
