Adobe Spark [and how it was used in the dystopia unit]

Adobe Spark: 3 tools in 1

Benefits of Adobe Spark:

  • 3 tool in 1
  • Alternative to Google draw/slideshows
  • Templates for students
  • Simple to adapt to

A Few Drawbacks:

  • Long load time
  • Templates can be limiting
  • Privacy Statement: Adobe collects email addresses without the standard education guarantees of privacy, so just be sure students do not include personal information in their published works!

Dystopia Unit:

A dystopia is a futuristic world where things have gone terribly wrong; dystopias criticize certain aspects of our current society.

Dystopia Unit: Student Steps

  1. Choose a dystopian novel -- Adobe Spark Poster
