Inject Creativity Live 18th November 2020 with Tim Kitchen and Erin Raethke

Tonight's guests: Juliette Bentley and Lauren Sayer

Welcome, welcome to those of you who joined us live or via the recordings. Missed out? Find the latest live Chat Show at the below recording on the Adobe for Education channel on YouTube:

It was a fabulous live show, and we found ourselves running a little over this evening due to my highly enthusiastic (and long... sorry#notsorry) demonstration of Spark Post App on mobile.

We few technical difficulties that #legend Luke Cathcart from Adobe was helping us overcome by working as moderator in place of our usual #champion moderator, Jerry Wong.

Juliette Bentley

Juliette is an Adobe Education Leader and also the Adobe Master Teacher for the APAC region. She is an English and Religious Studies Teacher at Mt St Michael’s College in Brisbane.

Juliette shared with us some examples of both teachers and students using Adobe Spark to curate resources and express their thoughts about topics, including in peer-review and collaborative environments.

Juliette also shared with us an instructive template she created in Spark Video (and also shared to the Adobe Education Exchange) that literally talks students through exactly what they need to do.

Juliette works to empower her students to be more than passengers in their learning journeys - she spoke beautifully to this and my paraphrasing can't do her justice :)

Lauren also spoke to a session where students selected their favourite app, then went and worked in XD to design and test their concept, in alignment with some UDL principles:

Lauren shared an example where students incorporated accessibility into her app, where users could listen as well as view content.
