Getting Started with Adobe
Getting started with Adobe Spark in Primary Schools
Adobe Spark for Education supports creativity through digital storytelling which encourages students to engage with the materials they’re presented with in more dynamic and interactive ways, using higher order thinking skills. Digital stories also help encourage student creativity within in their assignments by giving them the freedom to explore and use their imagination. It lets them explore wider range of ways to express themselves and find ways to bring their thoughts, ideas, and words to life.
Adobe Spark for Education makes it fast and easy for students and teachers to turn ideas into beautiful graphics, web stories, and video presentations with free apps accessible from anywhere and on any device with a web browser.
Getting started with Adobe Creative Cloud in Secondary Schools
Tomorrow is about what your students create, invent, design and build. It is about ideas and creativity: storytelling, expression and passion. Creativity is digital and has a home in every subject and every discipline. Digital expression is the new literacy. Adobe Creative Cloud delivers the world's best creative apps — including Rush, Photoshop, Illustrator and Premiere Pro — so your students can master the digital skills they need to succeed in the classroom and in their careers. Browse through the full app catalogue or start with Adobe Premiere Rush CC and Adobe Photoshop CC.
Adobe Premiere Rush CC allows teachers and students to produce amazing, professionally looking videos and projects leveraging video and images. Rush allows editing video files, adding titles and transitions, do colour correction, add and edit audio files and share the video.
Using video in the classroom is applicable across curriculum. It creates engaging and exciting experiences for students as they explore a new way to record, communicate and share ideas.
Adobe Photoshop CC is designed for anyone to design anything. From posters to beautiful websites, unforgettable artwork to enhanced photographs, Photoshop allows teachers and students to make any idea real. With intuitive tools and easy-to-use templates, even beginners can make something amazing and those with desire to reimagine reality have the capability of the world’s best imaging and graphic design software.
Images are a fantastic medium for teaching and sharing information. Visual learning materials are fun and engaging to create, and help students retain new knowledge far more effectively than purely text-based resources. By learning to create digital imagery you’ll be developing a new set of skills which you can then pass on to your students - giving them the power to create visual stories and projects using this highly versatile digital medium.
