Course Overview

Course Extension: We have extended the final deadline to Monday May 16 at 11pm. 

This four week Digital Storytelling course is aimed at teachers wishing to understand and use mobile apps to create compelling digital stories. Mobile tablets and devices have become part of the standard default tool set for learning and teaching. This course focuses on the core concepts of content creation for the classroom and aims to unleash the full potential of Adobe’s mobile apps whilst also giving participants the opportunity to hone their teaching skills by learning from our world class tutors.

This course is part of a series of Adobe Generation Professional courses designed to help educators become creators, not just consumers, of digital media. Throughout the series, you’ll learn new tools and techniques, explore best practices for teaching and learning, and unleash your creativity to help drive student outcomes. Drop in for one or engage in many, but we guarantee this series will help you and your students take your digital skills and creativity to the next level.

Each week we will cover different apps and explore creative opportunities within the classroom. We will explore apps such as, Adobe Slate, Adobe Voice & Adobe Post to enhance their potential as well as Adobe Sketch, Adobe Comp, Adobe Clip, Adobe Capture, Adobe Fix & Adobe MIx.

The course will build over the four weeks culminating in a final publication in the form of a final published assignment.

The course will follow the AGP pattern of a synchronous live class event held on three timezones; Sydney, London and Chicago every Wednesday at 7pm. The course will follow a stepped set of asynchronous content via the Adobe EdEx. Guest experts can be based upon teachers showing best classroom practice or participants demonstrating their findings.
