I’m not the best with technology, I have a hard time using technology but I really enjoyed using Adobe Spark! Adobe Spark is a free online/mobile design graphic app. You can create posts, pages and videos. After watching a tutorial video for Adobe Spark, I began creating a page!
To start off with, you add a title and a subtitle. Then you can add a background to spruce up the page a bit. Note that there are many options for pictures: Uploading photos from a computer, looking through creative common photos and photos you have in a Dropbox or Google Photos.
From there, you can start creating your own page! You can add photos, videos, text, a photo grid and a glideshow (pictures that fade in and fade out one after the other).
That’s basically all there is to it for pages! Pages can go on as long as you want. I successfully completed my first page on Adobe Spark. I did it on polynomial definitions and examples. I think it turned out well. I didn’t have a very difficult time creating the page and I would definitely use it again.
This is the preview of creating a video using Adobe Spark. You can pick the theme you want and go from there. You can add videos, text, music and voice recordings! I haven’t tried creating a video but there is a short how to use this video when you are about to begin and it really did not seem difficult to use.
– Free and no downloading.
– Able to upload photos and look through creative common photos to use.
-Has spell check.
-Tutorial videos if you need them.
-Easy way to create videos and pages of information
-As far as I know, you couldn’t have multiple text/picture bubbles in the glideshow.
-I don’t think there is a way to make the font bigger/smaller or have the text as a different color other than black.
Overall, I really enjoyed using Adobe Spark and I think it was a nice way to present the definitions for the polynomial unit. The picture below is part of the page I created. This is an organized way to present the information and it is visually appealing.
One Final Thought: This is a great resource for not only teachers but students as well. Students could use Adobe Spark for projects for a variety of classes!
