An example of a video invitation created with Spark Video. Students can create invitations to school fundraising events or create a video on their 40 Hour Famine challenge for example. They can share their mission statement and track their journey, then use this video as their tool to extend their reach to a wider audience.

Art students can use Spark Page to create a digital visual diary for projects. A teacher set out a task for his senior Art students to use Spark Page to present their personal critiques, which was a 16 week body of work, based on the concept of restoration. This example showcases how the Spark Page layout enabled the student to display her thought process in a chronological order.
