Ben Forta at Pymble Ladies College


Tim Kitchen, Kim Maksimovic, Anthony England & Ben Forta. Anthony is holding Ben’s new book about how to use Adobe Spark in the classroom.

Adobe’s Senior Director of Education Initiatives, Ben Forta began his 2019 Aussie visit with a visit to Pymble Ladies College in Sydney on Tuesday November 20.

Ben lives in Michigan, USA but spends most of his time visiting teachers and students all over the globe with a focus on improving the Adobe experience for education. Ben has been part of the Adobe Spark product team in recent years and he loves sharing the value of the Spark tools.


Pymble Ladies College is a large independent girls school with over 2000 students from K to 12. They have an extensive ICT program and were very keen to show Ben the way they integrate a wide range of Adobe’s creativity & productivity applications throughout the curriculum.
