I am very grateful to have the opportunity to work with such gracious and adaptable Edutech professionals, who adapted quickly and easily to the technical issues we experienced. In the recording, you'll note how Tim and I use Steven's unexpected break in transmission to promote the Adobe Edu Summit for APAC in September. Steven's presentation about equity and practices in the international education sector was really getting interesting as his internet dropped out - hopefully we will have the opportunity to see it in full... perhaps at the APAC Edu Summit?
Craig's presentation on what he and his students do with Adobe Xd was, as always, both interesting and inspiring. I took many, many screenshots to showcase his work during his presentation, but to immerse yourself in the full scope of creativity he employs with his students, you should check out our recording (linked above).
We'll be on a short break, and will be back on the 14th July 2021.

In tonight's episode of Inject Creativity Live, Tim, Jerry and I were joined by Adobe Education Leader Emeritus Chris Betcher from Sydney, and Education Thought Leader Paul McClean from New Zealand.
Our guest speakers were, as always, informative and inspirational. I especially enjoyed Chris' presentation as it focused on one of my loves - storytelling through videomaking, with a focus on the cinematic approach and how you can tell better stories by employing the principles of cinematography.
Paul presented a 5 minute gem on his approach to setting up Digital Mastery in schools.
Tonight I learned that no matter how much time I spend thinking about creating videos and software demonstrations, it is so incredibly valuable to think purposefully and fully about how elements can enhance or hinder the story you are trying to tell - even if the content is quite dry.
Paul's presentation focus was, as always, dedicated to his passion in building real-world learning and talent development opportunities for students, and to move away from the standardised testing approach towards learning and student development in education. He is working quite closely with a school at the moment, and also shared with us a success story of one student from a previous school he worked with. See Paul's presentation from timestamp 50:08 above.
A couple of great shares during the fireside chat from some of our attendees as well - I have linked these spontaneous creative examples here (right).

My day job includes designing, developing, writing, copy editing, creating and delivering training resources for staff and students (including video capture/editing and voice over/other post-production work for multi-modal resources). In my spare time, I like to take pretty pictures.
