Creating Stories with Adobe Spark - Part 2

In part 1 of Creating Stories with Adobe Spark, the focus was on how you can use Adobe Spark Video as a tool for storytelling. Storytelling via medium of video is a great way to share an impactful narrative. If video is not your preferred method for storytelling, Adobe offers another tool in the Spark suite. Now you can tell your story via a web page and share with others across the internet. Welcome to Adobe Spark Page!

What is Adobe Spark Page?

Create a single all-inclusive web page with Adobe Spark Page. Bring images and words together to create attention grabbing web stories like this:

As you can see in the examples, there are various layouts to choose from to make your own web story. Use your own photos or choose from thousands of free online images. Choose a theme with predetermined fonts and designs. You and your students can be creating web pages in a short amount of time! By the way, I’m using Adobe Spark Page for this blog.

Accounts

If you read my last blog, you might want to skip this part since it’s a repeat for new readers. Many students in K-12 and in higher ed are using Adobe Spark Page to create content. However, because Adobe Spark apps are rated age 12+. Adobe recommends that teachers or parents install and setup apps, including creating an account. For classrooms with students under age 12, you can create a class Adobe account and all students can login using that same account. There will be some obvious best practices so that students are not editing each others. For example, each project name could start with their name like this, Johnny Doe Lion Story.

To begin, click on the yellow “Start now for free” button in the web app or launch the app on device to create an account. Sign up using Facebook, Google, or your any email account. On both the web app and iOS app, look for the blue plus sign to begin creating.

No Coding Skills Required

If you’re asking yourself, “Do I need to have web-design experience?” “Do I need to know HTML coding?” The answer to both questions is no. Basically, what you see is what you get! Follow the prompts to create an elegant magazine style web story. Instructions are clear and concise, making it easy for your students to follow along, as well. Adobe Spark Page makes it easy to make adjustments. For this example, I’ll walk you through how I created the following: 10 Adobe Spark Page Classroom Ideas.

Customize Your Story

You have the option of adding photos, text, buttons, video, photo grids, and glideshows to your Spark Page. In addition, you can choose from a variety of themes to suit your story. Whenever you see a grayish plus sign, click /tap on it to select from the options available.
