We're baaacccckkkkkk.... two weeks earlier than we thought!
This week was our opportunity to test out the new format for Inject Creativity Live in 2021, with a longer livestream and non-recorded 'fireside' chat. With so many things going on in the world of creative tech and Adobe, it was bound to happen that we would run a little overtime, with part 2 of my Adobe Spark Post (with video frames in iOS) needing to be rescheduled to a later date.
Tim, Jerry and I were joined by Clara Galan who gave a great update on what is coming up in the world of the Adobe Creative Educator program for Level 1 and 2, as well as collaborative projects and challenges that are available via the social networks used to connect educators and creatives from across the globe.
I then completed Part 1 of a live demo and Spark Challenge suggestion, showing off the new screen layout of Adobe Spark web and what can be achieved with a theme in mind... my suggestion was 'Expectation vs. Reality'. I had a couple of prior examples, then I:
This demo I am going to do in a livestream on Thursday 11th February at 6pm AEST/7pm AEDT. It'll be the first in a Create/Share/Learn livestream series I have planned for my YouTube channel, where I spend a bit of time exploring what is possible with different tech, featuring programs like Adobe Spark and Premiere Rush, to other apps and services I enjoy and use to build resources for work and play.
I'll be putting up a new post with the link to the recording then, and will pop a reminder in my socials prior to going live. Hopefully I'll see you there! :)
And about my demo... I was flattered and blown away by the Adobe Spark shares that people submitted at our fireside chat with my suggested theme 'Expectation vs. Reality'. A lot of them had stories to go with them too, from tales of collaborative PD pages, to positive spins on re-purposing laser cutters to make maths fun, to celebrations of the return of our show!
A big thank you to everyone who had a go... including those who decided not to share their link on the night. If you did create something but didn't feel up to sharing it on the night, that is cool - there is always next time, and our group of ed and tech professionals are a wonderful and supportive bunch :)
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.
