Brett invited everyone to start coming up with language that is evoked by the imagery on this site. The goal was to provide students space to start creating descriptive sentences by giving them a starting point in Adobe Spark Video.

Our language has nuanced layers that students need an opportunity to explore.

Spark is being used as a scaffold to give students space to explore their descriptions and language without getting distracted or limited by an open-ended narrative structure.


Dom Traynor

Adobe Education Evangelist for Europe

Dom joined Tim to discuss the Climate Change Challenge, which has built from the Writing for Change Challenge to take on a set of new writing challenges based on the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Scotland from 1-12 November.

You can choose from any challenge on the Spark Page (linked above).

After you select the button, you will go through to the challenge description and a template for you to use.

From there, you can use what has been created in the template to make your own Spark Page to share and get the word out!

And now...

Michelle Dennis

Head of Digital at Haileybury

Michelle spoke to the concerning gender disparity in technology, and the underrepresentation of women in the technology sector.

Representation is important in the tech industry, as underrepresentation results in voices not being included or heard in the development of future technologies that we interact with. It leads to inequity.

Michelle shared some interesting states from an industry.gov.au survey.

The way that individuals think about technology changes the way learners interact with their learning experience.

You don't have to think of yourself as 'good at tech' to use it to solve a problem.

Michelle also discussed how women (and other current minorities in tech sectors like gaming) are met with more aggression than males in stream comments.
