On Wednesday October 21 about 30 Year 5 students from Nakara Primary School in Darwin (Northern Territory (NT), Australia) took part in a very special Adobe Day organised by the Northern Territory Department of Education.
The morning was spent at the school where the students took part in a series of activities to learn how to use Adobe Voice, Slate and Premier Clip, three of Adobe’s outstanding iPad apps.
In the afternoon, the students were bused to the very impressive NT Parliament House to be journalists. They worked in small groups to document stories relating to the Parliament House and surrounds using one of the three Adobe apps.
Some of the students were able to interview The Hon. Peter Chandler (Minister for Education, Police, Fire and Emergency Services, Transport, Infrastructure and Veterans Support).
Some students interviewed their local member of Parliament The Hon. Lauren Moss (Member for Casuarina).
It was an amazing day of learning and fun. I was very impressed with the way the student all worked together as apprentice journalist with the Adobe apps to produce some great stories.
