Sparking creativity at Monash


On Tuesday 14th May, I worked with a group of final year pre-service teachers at the Monash University Faculty of Education to help them enhance their digital story telling skills with the help of Adobe Spark.

Prior to my visit, students collected photos and videos from a field trip to a farm specialising in composting and Aboriginal Garden native foods. My brief was to help them turn their image and footage into a in interesting digital story.

Adobe Spark Video was the tool of choice for this exercise because it is so accessible and easy to work with either via an iPhone, iPad or on an Internet browser via

In less than 1 hour, the students has produced some very creative short stories and felt confident working with Adobe Spark in the future.

As final year Pre-Service Teachers, it was my pleasure to introduce them to software that they can use with their future students when they get into Victorian classrooms in 2020 as first year out teachers.
