The first Spark component:
Post lets you make an image using ingredients like photos, graphics and text. Here are some examples...
This is a graphic I made for our Instagram account.
This is another simple graphic we can use for Instagram or Twitter
This is a little collage, made quickly with one of many templates.
Here's a quick variation on the previous image.
And here's another variation, using a filter on the image. All are quick and easy to use.
Remember this? I made it using some free photos that Spark gives you access to.
Those are just a few examples of what journalism teachers and students might want to use Post for. It's simple, stylish and has a short, gentle learning curve. It has templates for all sorts of social media formats.
If you start into Spark using Post, it'll ease you into the whole Spark application.
And now FOR Page...
For starters, this page was made with Page. It's great for making things like this: you don't need a website since Adobe hosts it and just you link to it.
It's great for online journalism too. Here's a sample I whipped up from a story that my students did on the March 14 March For Our Lives event.
Here's a great story done in Spark Page by Caeli Chesin.
This page is another way to use it: photo-centric package that is flexible and let's you do a variety of things.
Last, this is a little Page I made to talk to students about "not seeing the forest for the trees." The main reason I'm including it because all the images I used were free ones I found in Spark through a quick search. There are tons of great photos available.
And THen there's: Spark Video
The best way to explain Spark Video is...a Spark Video! Have a look!
