New Adobe global study reveals that creative problem-solving skills are central to success in the future workforce but are not adequately supported in today’s curricula. In researching Creative Problem Solving in Schools: Essential Skills Today’s Students Need for Jobs in Tomorrow’s Age of Automation, Adobe surveyed 1600 educators and 400 policymakers from the U.K., Japan, Germany and the U.S. and learned how the people shaping education and students’ experiences view creative problem solving as a critical skill. Overwhelmingly, 86 percent of global educators believe that students who excel at creative problem-solving will have higher-earning job opportunities in the future, and 85 percent agreed that these same skills are in high demand by today’s employers for senior level and higher paying careers. Additionally, three quarters of respondents predict that professions that require creative problem-solving skills are less likely to be impacted by automation. Yet despite this clear consensus, there is a huge disconnect with what is happening in the classroom today. 90 percent of educators believe we need to find better ways to integrate it into the curricula, and more than half of educators explain that they do not have the tools, training or knowledge to nurture creative problem solving in their students. Of the policymakers surveyed, 88 percent advocate for finding a way to reform the current curricula in their region to better nurture creative problem solving in schools. To learn more about the study, view the infographic and visit the research study microsite to learn how other educators are teaching these critical skills.

This is an Adobe Spark tutorial based on a session I run within various courses here at the University. DOWNLOAD LESSON PLAN LINK TO ADOBE SPARK TUTORIAL The session should last about 45 mins.

I am really pleased with this latest Adobe Spark manifestation which students can follow along with on phones and pads and have access to within our virtual learning environments. Enjoy! Comments welcomed! Ian.

Teachers have very little time free outside of their allotted preparation time. Therefore planning and creating learning resources needs to be simple and speedy. Adobe Spark Video ( https://spark.adobe.com/sp/) is the perfect tool for making quick reusable videos that explain key concepts. Don't forget, make it once and you can use these resources again and again. How do I make a 30 second video? 1. Decide on the key concept you want the students to learn, keep it simple. 2. Make an outline of the key points to help your audience understand what the video is for. In my example I use Spark Post to do this) This also acts as a make do script. 3. Open Spark Video 4. Record the key points, one per slide. Keep these super short. 5. Go back and add images, icons, text or video to reinforce the key points. 6. Add a little background audio to enhance the experience and help the narrative flow a little. 7. Publish and share the video with your loving students! Can you show me how? Here's my video demonstrating how to make a 30 second video: https://vimeo.com/264988788 And what does the final video look like? It looks like this: https://vimeo.com/264866141
In this resource I aim to show you how to create a simple interactive video using free apps. How do I make video? First I created my video with Adobe Spark Video (Free). In my example I use a Key Stage 2 Maths example of introducing negative numbers. Adobe Spark Video is about the easiest video tool on the market in my opinion. Watch my example, but note there is no interaction at this point. Click here: https://youtu.be/1aEpaKjuJQM If you like the look of what Adobe Spark Video does here's a short video to help get started: https://vimeo.com/255069980 Why bother with interactivity? We know video is a massively powerful tool to aid learning on it's own but by adding interaction to the video we can allow students to test their understanding during and immediately at the end of their viewing experience. This allows them to rewatch and if necessary relearn the content to ensure they understand. How do we add Interactivity to video? H5P is a Norwegian company that offer many excellent interactive tools but the interactive video is extremely powerful as it allows us to add interactions, ask students questions about the learning content and much more. You can sign up for free and learn more here: https://h5p.org/ I made this short video to demonstrate the basic process of adding some simple questions to my video.
