Spark Post

Spark Post enables you to create stunning graphics in seconds. Start by remixing a design from the Inspiration Wall, or start from scratch to create a truly unique masterpiece. Either way, add an image, provide text, and then beautiful typography will be applied on-the-fly. Transform your creation by applying design filters with a single tap. Each tap gives you completely new layouts, color palettes, typography styles, and photo filters - no design experience required. When you’re done, save your creation, print it, or share it with teachers, classmates, family and friends.

Announcements, Learning Aids, Quotes, and more...

Adorn your classroom walls with student ideas, questions, quotes, and more. Spark Post is primarily intended for creating images and lots of teachers are finding that it's a quick and fun tool for combining images and text to create beautiful printed signage.

Flashcards and Assignments

Create your own custom flashcards for maths, science, reading.... health, you pick, then print them out and give them to your students, OR have them create their own. Studies show the more involved a student is in their learning the more they retain the information and can apply the knowledge and skills learned later.

Students can create a Post with a fun fact about themselves as a guessing game for classmates related to the topic or the most current lesson.

Have student create a project that's more involved by having them provide pictures and text about the subject or topic you're currently covering in class.

Spark Video

With Adobe Spark Video, you and your students can create videos in just a few minutes using themes and music. Presenting a report, explaining a concept in class, or telling a personal story has never been easier. Starting with a blank slate, or using gentle prompts as a guide, teachers and students use Spark Video to talk through their story one line at a time. Easily combine images, video clips and icons into a shareable movie that is both fun and beautiful. Select a design theme and supporting music. Add text, music and your own voice to personalize the video then just tap play and view it on any device or browser. When you're finished, share with friends, family, and the world.

Lesson Plans, Unit Overview, Visual/Audio Examples

You can use Spark Video to record lesson plans, provide unit overviews or examples that need more than written direction. What's great is that the final version is a sharable URL so no more worrying about the file size, and it's set up so it can be viewed on a desktop, tablet OR phone; reaching your students where they already are.
