Adobe @ Montmorency


Montmorency Secondary College in Melbourne’s north-east, was the venue for an Adobe Day and professional learning session run by Brian Chau and myself on Tuesday 24th April.

Brian spent the afternoon with the Year 11 Computing class teaching them some of the ins and outs of Adobe Dreamweaver.

Adobe Dreamweaver CC is a design and development application to build website and mobile applications. It codes in HTML, CSS and JavaScript.


While Brian was working with the Year 11s, I spent the afternoon with the Year 10 Photography class and ran a workshop on Adobe Photoshop.


It was interesting to note that most of school computers that the students were using had installed the 10 year old CS4 version of Photoshop even though the most recent versions have been available to all Victorian Government Secondary Schools since last year thanks to an enterprise agreement with Adobe.

Some of the students did have an updated version installed on their personal laptop so the word is getting out about the free access to Victorian Government secondary students.

After school, both Brian and I worked with a number of the Montmorency teachers and some visiting teachers from around Melbourne. We did a group activity with the Adobe Spark tools then Brian ran a Photoshop workshop and I ran a session on video editing with Premiere Clip & Premiere Pro.
