Adobe Edu in Brisbane

Following my keynote with all the staff of Brigidine College in Brisbane (Queensland) at the start of this year, I returned this week for a special Adobe Education workshop/presentation with about 30 teachers from around the Brisbane area. Then returned again the following day for a video workshop with a group of students.


About 20 schools were represented at the professional learning event by teachers keen to know more about how Adobe is making a difference in enhancing creativity and 21st century communication skills in classrooms all over the world.

As you can see from the image below, we had an ambitious plan …


Most of the plan was achieved and all my resources for this event can be found on the Adobe Education Exchange via:

Similar events are planned throughout Australia this year. Find out more via the following links …

To thank Brigidine College for hosting this week’s PL session, I ran a video focused Adobe Day for a group of Year 9s the following day. It was a pleasure to show them a range of video production techniques and teach them the basics of Adobe Premiere Pro.

The students started by creating a title background for their video story using Adobe Post.

Then we moved to the school’s green screen studio to do some filming


The rest of the day was spent getting familiar with Adobe Premiere Pro and using it to construct each of the video stories.


I was very impressed with what the students were able to achieve in such a short time.

Special thank you to Brigidine College Assistant Principal Paul Bennett for helping to organise these two days of Adobe creativity.
