The district has purchased a license for all LCISD students to have access to Adobe Spark. This program will let you create posts (graphics), web pages, and videos. Students can access Adobe Spark through ClassLink.
The Spark Video option is great for creating quality presentations while putting most of the focus on the content and less on the bells and whistles. Students do not have access to a lot of control as far as backgrounds, font, and animation are concerned. This allows more time for research and content as not as much time is needed in the program.
A cheat sheet has been created for you to use with your students that gives them an overview of Spark Video. It guides them through creating the project, choosing your theme, adding content, and finishing/sharing your project. You can download the cheat sheet here: Adobe Spark Video Cheat Sheet
There is also a YouTube Playlist that contains four overview videos of Spark Video and coincide with the cheat sheet. It is another great resource for students to have access to as they are being introduced to, and working in, the program. You can find the playlist here: Adobe Spark Video Tutorial Playlist on YouTube
Please feel free to use and share these resources as you see fit. If you are planning on trying this out with your students, a great idea is to download the cheat sheet from this post and then upload it to Canvas. You can also place a link to the tutorial playlist from YouTube or embed the videos directly into the Canvas page. Then your students will always have those resources available.
To make things easier, a page has been uploaded into the Canvas Commons. You can search for pwagner Adobe Spark Video Resources in the Commons. After selecting the page, you should be able to add to your course.
