Where do you get your resources?

Make sure you have access to the Creative Cloud
  • Many teachers don't know they have access!
  • Ask your local IT/ICT to check if it is available through work
Adobe Education Exchange
  • Over 400 resources are available on the Exchange for Spark alone
  • Spark suite is a great time saver for developing resources
  • Make use of the examples and imagery
  • Spark Page is a great portfolio, Video is great for creating stories, Post can create signs and posters (and is a wonderful place to start).

Lauren is also inspired by the fact that students can carry their work from Primary through to their secondary and tertiary education.
