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 have run this session in many forms for a number of years. It appears to work with many fundamental concepts being understood. 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.

This Adobe Spark video introduces students to the basic elements and structure of good storytelling while providing the narrative framework to tell their own unique story about their journeys in creativity.
In this module, groups of 4-5 students will create a digital brochure as a supplement for an art exhibit. Students must include the exhibit’s theme and its importance, styles of artwork featured, and examples from the exhibit. Using InDesign, students will balance the organizational and spatial aesthetics of graphic design with visual elements from the exhibit itself in order to craft an informational and visually appealing brochure. In doing so, they will engage deeply and critically in the content of an art exhibit, increasing their understanding of the humanities, while also improving their creativity, organization, and research skills.
This resource provides an overview, syllabus, and sample student work for a college-level media production course. The primary learning outcome for the course is for students to deepen their understanding of "how media work" both rhetorically and materially by (re)presenting the same documentary narrative in five different modes, using at least five different Adobe Creative Cloud applications: (1) Print Magazine using InDesign (2) Audio Podcast using Audition (3) Film using Premiere Pro (4) Website using Muse, Spark, or XD (5) Mobile Application using XD [*6] Photography using Photoshop *Note that in this class, students didn't present photographic collections per se, but they used Photoshop a great deal to develop media for the other genres and applications.
Learn to create images whose backgrounds have been removed to produce polished multimedia presentations. Creating an image based icon with alpha transparency is easily done with the Photoshop Mix mobile app. This tutorial shows the steps for removing the background from an image of a sprouting seed. The resulting image can be added to slideshows or multimedia presentations such as an Adobe Spark Video.
Four years ago I started a discussion on the EdEx titled Employees Only - No Students Wanted. To avoid confusion I added: The idea is more metaphoric than literal. Two years ago I began thinking about the idea literally: Could we actually start a business at school? To make a long story short, after researching the market, networking with the players, discussing it with the students, and finally getting approval from the school and district, we launched Mac Lab Media on January 9, 2017. Less than a week later someone told me about Real World Scholars. Soon thereafter we were accepted into the program (during their first mid-year application window) and I replaced my Rube Goldberg-like edu-solution with Real World Scholar's tested, vetted, 100% legal Ed Corps model. Find more info here. Mac Lab Media is a commercial art foundry. I've replaced the assessment component with the Grit-Based Rubric but this paragraph from Minimum Wage sums up my intent: The ultimate goals, however, have nothing to do with grades. For the Mac Lab, our goal is to become a self-funded learning environment by the 2020/2021 school year. For the students, our goal is to provide the training and experience necessary to launch their own commercial art foundries upon graduation. ----- NOTE: All #RethinkHighSchool resources here on the EdEx rely on the concepts expressed in my (re)Imagine blog post.

Did you know that a well-designed game leverages Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal Development, Csikszentmihalyi’s Flow, Dweck’s Growth Mindset, and Duckworth’s Grit? I sure didn’t until encountering those surprising connections in month nine of my master’s program in 2011 while working through the introductory quest line at Gamestar Mechanic. Okay, so maybe my digital mentor didn’t reference those researchers directly but the concepts were certainly front and center. Armed with that knowledge, my experience playing World of Warcraft (I was required to play for 10 days) was transformative. After a few days I knew I had to introduce a gamified curriculum delivery system in my classroom. Unfortunately, in May of 2011 there were no viable options to do so (3D Game Lab was still in beta at that point) so my students and I set out to create our own system. Here's a peek at where we are today with Game On, our free WordPress plugin. Whether you opt for a commercial, analog, or even our own system, I urge you to consider how well-implemented game mechanics might enhance your students' experience in your learning environment.

I wrote (re)Imagine in response to the Super School Challenge. Our staff wasn't too excited about my ideas but a few others—including some of the folks from one of the winning schools ($10M grant) who popped by to observe and discuss—have shown interest. The (re)Imagine blog post isn't a plan for the future; it's just one more part of what we're currently doing in the Mac Lab (my classroom). Since virtually everything else I'll be posting will reference information in (re)Imagine, you might as well give it a go if you're interested in rethinking your own learning environment. And who knows, you might even find an idea or two that'll work for you and your students. :) NOTE: If (re)Imagine is in tl;dr territory—it's around a 30 minute read—I apologize but don't know how to work around the issue. According to WordPress, I've made 330 revisions since the article was first published. I actually have tried to be clear and concise but when challenging common sense one must tread with caution so as not to unnecessarily offend the reader. *sigh* Unfortunately, tact isn't one of my strengths. Nor is writing, but I do try. (Dyslexia is such a misunderstood superpower.) I'll be sharing more #RethinkHighSchool resources so you can easily find them on the EdEx. Click on the magnifying glass at the top of the page and search for for RethinkHighSchool (without the #) and you'll find the rest.
This project was designed as a collaboration between Los Gatos High School English teacher Tiffany Hamm and Los Gatos-Saratoga Union High Schools District Technology Integration Specialist Nicole Dalesio. As part of an interdisciplinary Social Justice course, Tiffany and Nicole challenged students to create these striking images to highlight inspirational and historically-significant quotations. Each student created his or her own poster using Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Spark Post. Then, Tiffany and Nicole printed the posters and displayed them around the school campus. The goal was to both assess student learning about content-area themes, and to raise awareness on campus about the importance of social justice.

This project was designed as a collaboration between me and my school drama teacher. Inspired by artist JR’s global art project, our students created these large-scale photos to speak back to community stereotypes. Students worked in groups to discuss issues of identity and representation, then developed mission statements for the project to frame the photo installation. Each student posed for a photo expressing one of the mission statements. Students used Adobe Photoshop to edit and resize their images, type their mission statements, then assemble the layout of their photos for the installation. After printing the posters, students wheat-pasted the photos onto walls throughout the school. The goal was for students to discover and celebrate who they are as a school community while speaking out against misconceptions to turn stereotypes inside out.
Students (and their teachers) love Adobe Spark and its ability to create beautiful videos, web stories, and graphics. The apps are fun, engaging, and actively encourage creative expression. Adobe Spark is incredibly easy to learn, so formal instruction and training is rarely needed. What educators do ask for, however, is guidance on how Spark can, and should, be used in the classroom. Over the past couple of years, Adobe educators have been conducting in-school and online professional development focused on creativity, digital storytelling, and the role that Adobe Spark plays in supporting the same. This kit is the culmination of these efforts. It contains everything you need to host your own productive and informative in-school PD session. The kit contains everything you need to host a successful Professional Development session on Creativity and Digital Storytelling with Adobe Spark: Instructor notesSlidesParticipant guideEducation guideEvent invitationDetails on how to get Spark branded handouts The Adobe Spark team plans to update the kit regularly, so any and all feedback is appreciated.
This resource has been developed to help prepare students for the Visual Design Using Adobe Photoshop CC ACA exam. This complete lesson plan pairs with Photoshop CC 2015 Module 1 Tutorial from ACATestPrep.com! Scenario: Your grandmother’s 80th birthday is coming up, and your family wants to create a photo collage to give her as a present. Your parents have dragged down a box of old pictures from the attic, but after scanning them, the images are dusty and discolored. They have asked you to use Photoshop to fix them up and make Grandma’s collage!
These tutorials are a set of lesson notes for a Creative Digital Media course - beginners Photoshop - that I have been running at Sidcot School. I apologise therefore that they are specific to that situation, and very Mac - centric, as it is Macbookpro's that we are working on, but Photoshop works pretty much the same on PC's as on Apple computers. Each week I have taken a different tool to look at in detail.
