Spark Student Learning with Adobe Spark Video

Thursday, August 1

Session 3 – 2:00 – 3:00 pm

Location: McCartney Hall 202

Adobe Spark Video empowers students to show what they know in new and exciting ways. Students quickly create engaging videos with images, clip-art, text, voice-over, and music that show what they know in ways meaningful to them as learners. Video production has never been so easy or so much fun! Students use Adobe Spark Video as young as five while high school and college students create outstanding multimedia projects with it. This web-based tool is compatible with iPads, Chromebooks, and Windows 10 devices.
