Best Practices: 3 Tips for Using Spark in the History classroom
About the Webinar
We agree that we must give students opportunities to flex their creative muscles in the classroom, yet we must also meet the needs of our curriculum. It’s one thing to know your way around an Adobe product; it’s quite another to translate that knowledge into a content-specific project. In the Best Practices webinars, you’ll come together with fellow teachers of your content area to explore a project using Adobe tools for the content-specific classroom. Whether it’s exploring Adobe Photoshop for a science project or using Adobe Spark for the social studies classroom, work alongside an Adobe Education Leader (AEL) to ask questions, share your work with fellow educators and test-drive a project before embarking upon it with your students.
