Taking video to the next level


On Thursday November 7, I had the pleasure to run an advanced video workshop for a group of teachers from Methodist Ladies College, Camberwell Girls Grammar and Kingswood College in Melbourne. This all-day event titled Taking Video Production to the Next Level was hosted at the Independent Schools Victoria office in South Melbourne.

After touching on the Spark tools as a simple way to create video solutions we quickly jumped to Character Animator, Premiere Rush and then spend most of the day working with Adobe Premiere Pro.

On a personal note, it was lovely to connect with the Kinswood College which is where I started by teaching career back in 1991. It was also great to catch up with Kim Perkins from Camberwell Girls Grammar who was my manager when I first worked at Strathcona in the early 2000’s.

Creativity in Melbourne’s West


On Thursday 31st October, I had the opportunity to spend a couple of hours with a group of eLearning specialist¬† and deputy principals from a number of Catholic primary schools in Melbourne’s west. This was organised as by the Catholic Western Region eLearning Network of Victoria.


The focus of this session was the use of the three Adobe Spark apps for browser and for iPad. Most of the teachers were new to the Spark apps so we had an opportunity  to introduce each app and share how they could be used within a range of teaching and learning experiences.

Feedback comments from this event¬† included …

  • Loved learning about how easy ADOBE products are to use. Can’t wait to share learning with staff and get students using.
  • It’s fantastic to see what is possible with with Adobe products and how easy it is to use them with students.
  • Looking at what you can do with the apps was eye opening.
