Forest Lake State High School, near Brisbane, was the venue for the first of two consecutive professional learning sessions run by Adobe in Education to help teachers enhance their practice with the use of Adobe’s digital creativity and productivity tools.
Twenty four teachers registered for this event from nine different schools/universities.
Brisbane based Adobe Campus Leader Juliette Bentley ran a delightful workshop session titled Sparking creativity with Adobe Spark. Juliette is a well known teacher of english and she runs a series of creative writing classes for QLD students. She has been using the Spark tools in a creative way to get the best out of students writing and story telling. She has been asked to present her Spark workshops in Townsville and in Singapore later this year.
My former colleague and friend Richard Turner-Jones, ran a workshop on how to make the most of Adobe InDesign and Acrobat to create interactive assessment document. Richard is always a great support when I run events like this in Brisbane.
The work shop I ran for this event was on video editing with Adobe Premiere Pro. Even though it is a professional tool, it is not hard to learn the basics of Premiere Pro and it was great to see the teachers get excited about enhancing video production at their schools.
