Digital creativity in the Hunter Valley


Twenty-Five Catholic school teachers, from all over the Hunter Valley region in rural NSW gathered together on a very warm Friday 17th February at All Saints College, St Peter’s Campus in Maitland for an all-day professional learning experience based on getting more familiar with a range of Adobe’s creative productivity tools.

We started the day with an overview of what Adobe is as a company and how its software is being used in education and industry around the world to enhance creativity & digital experiences. Then we explored some of the free mobile apps with the teachers teaming up to produce a short video using Adobe Premiere Clip.

Other products we work-shopped including the three Adobe Spark tools (Spark Post, Spark Video & Spark Page) and Adobe Photoshop with a focus on 3D banners, content aware fill, clone stamp & the liquefy filter.

Most of the afternoon sessions were dedicated to more serious video production & video editing skills with Adobe Premiere Pro.

We used a green screen to film one of the teachers then shared that footage with other footage & audio to make a short video story about hover-boarding.


All the resources that were shared throughout this day can be found on the Adobe Education Exchange via –
