Digital Creativity with Auckland Teachers


About forty teachers from ten different schools/universities registered for a special after school Adobe professional learning event in Auckland on Wednesday 13th June hosted at Avondale College.


Special thank you to Jane Chen from Adobe, local Auckland Teacher Donna Golightly and Paul McClean from Avondale for offering a range of workshop options for the teachers.

The feedback from this event featured the following comments …

  • My mind has exploded!
  • Excellent session!!
  • This has been an awesome session that I wish that I had more time learning about Adobe. Photoshop was just so amazing!! Kids would definitely love to learn more about it especially with animation!
  • A highlight was understanding basic tools in Photoshop to create cool effects
  • Dr Tim Kitchen was a great presenter! Straight forward, engaging and enthusiastic.
  • Fantastic work! please do more workshops in Auckland!
  • I enjoyed just immersing myself in the Adobe products – as I have always felt a little alienated from them.
  • A highlight was the welcome & Tim was a very engaging presenter. Realizing there’s a lot more Adobe software I need to get my head around than I thought!


During my Photoshop workshop, the Principal of Avondale College Brent Lewis popped in to greet everyone.


Thank you to Paul McClean (Director of Innovation- Avondale College) and Brent Lewis (Principal – Avondale College) for their support and encouragement with this event. We are looking forward to many more similar events in the future.
