On Monday 30th October 2017, Parkdale Secondary College in Melbourne hosted an Adobe Day as well as a professional learning opportunity for their staff and visiting Victorian educators.
All Victorian government secondary schools now have access to the Adobe Creative Cloud software via the eduSTAR network without needing to opt-in and pay individually (click here for more information). The aim of this event was to celebrate this access and provide students and teachers with practical examples of how Adobe applications can make a positive difference to learning and teaching.
Brian Chau (Adobe Solution Consultant) and I each had a group of talented students to work with during the day to enhance their communication and digital creativity skills with a range of Adobe products.
Brian focused on Photoshop & Adobe Illustrator and I introduced the Spark tools and Premiere Pro to a group of media students.
In the afternoon, a group of Parkdale teachers, as well as other visiting teachers from the region, joined together for a special Adobe professional learning event at the school. Adobe campus leader Michelle Dennis joined Brian and myself to lead a set of workshops and help inspire the teachers to enhance creativity with a wide range of Adobe tools.
Special thank you to David Russell (Principal), Vito Boglietti (eLearning Leader) and Liz Fairley for helping to make this day a success.
