Tonight's Inject Creativity Live Chat-Show and Deeper Dive event was another fun, thought provoking evening, filled with great conversation about how education and personal fulfilment are not mutually exclusive, and how new tools can give students the opportunity to express themselves in a wide variety of ways. Tim, Jerry and I were joined by Kesh Chinia from Queensland and Peter Hutton from Victoria. If you missed the live Chat Show, the recording is embedded below.
The conversation and demonstrations were so great that we ran a bit overtime tonight, which was well worth it (plus I had my dinner early ;) !). If you are interested in anything that was covered tonight, my Adobe Spark Summary page from this evening is below:
Tonight's Deeper Dive with Peter resonated with me powerfully, particularly with some of the comments placed in the chat around attitudes towards different kinds of learning, the prioritisation of a specific kind of numeracy, and the detrimental results it can have on a student and their learning experiences.
Kesh's presentation was delightful in showing that his 'assessment' with his students not only enabled them to engage with his area of expertise, but also allowed the flexibility for students to create tools relating to their own interests (or study for 'other' subjects) while creating solutions for their needs and focus with the wonderful technical tool of Adobe XD. Students could expand their skills and understanding in Graphic and app design while simultaneously create content that was meaningful to them, and I really appreciate that application. It inspired me.
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.
