Challenge 1: Adobe Spark

July is the perfect time to get acquainted with Adobe Spark. With the recent changes they have made to their Education policy, now even students under the age of 13 are able to share their learning in powerful ways. The Spark Education page is a great place to start, and you for sure want to check out the PD Kit┬áif you’re in charge of training other people.


If your curiosity about this tool isn’t already IGNITED, check out this quick overview of how to get started with Adobe Spark.



Now it’s time to PLAY!

Set aside some time for yourself this week to PLAY with Adobe Spark. Try a Post, Page or Video – or all three! As you’re playing to learn these new tools consider how you might use them in your instruction to engage learners or to share your message with your school community. How might you model ethical and safe use? How might you introduce these tools to students to use


Don’t forget to SHARE what you’ve made and/or your insights into the process. You might share with a friend, post to a larger audience with the #KyGoPlay hashtag or even make an explainer video that you can use with students this school year. Don’t keep your thoughts and your discoveries to yourself!
