Creativity at the Top End

As the dry season begins in the top end of Australia, a new lease on digital creativity has been happening in a number of Northern Territory (NT) schools. I had the opportunity to working with a number of NT teachers, students and Education Administrators this week organised by Adobe Campus Leader Mark Christie Director eLearning Systems, Department of Education NT.


A focus for this trip was the NT Catholic sector who have a number of schools who are keen to make the most of their Adobe software to enhance creativity in the teaching and learning process. It was lovely to visit O’Loughlin Catholic College and work with a number of Year 7 students to enhance their Photoshop skills. Some visiting teachers from surrounding Catholic Schools also joined the session to take back to their schools the key message that developing digital media schools can provide students with lots of opportunities to advance their future communication and creativity skills.

Special thank you to John Morton, Education Officer – ICT for Learning, Catholic Education Office, Diocese of Darwin for helping to organise this eve

I also had the pleasure to re-visit Parap Primary School and work with their Year 4 & Year 2 students during the afternoon and a number of the teaching staff after school.
