Back To School With Adobe Spark

It's Back-To-School time, and teachers all over are prepping for another year in the classroom. Back in prehistoric times, when I was in school, that meant sharpening lots of pencils, trying to get last year's chalk mark remnants off the board, obtaining a stack of clean projector transparencies and duplicator carbon sheets ... ouch! Teachers these days do much the same, although we've (thankfully) traded much of that ancient technology for shiny laptops, Chromebooks, iPads, and desktop computers.

Over the past few years, I've had the good fortune and privilege of meeting thousands of passionate educators the world over, and many have shared the innovative ways that they are using our FREE Adobe Spark in their classrooms. Just as I've done the past two years, I've compiled some of my favorite teacher-shared Spark classroom ideas into this post.

Adobe Spark Safe Search

Adobe Spark is immensely popular among younger users, even very young users. To make Spark safer for our youngest fans we recently significantly revamped safe-search of both photos and icons. That said, no safe-search filter is truly foolproof, and so we've implemented a blacklist mechanism so that we can quickly block offensive images if they do somehow get through the filter. If you run into problematic images, please email us with the exact search term and a copy of the image.

Back To School With Adobe Spark

It's Back-To-School time, and teachers all over are prepping for another year spent in the company of fresh eager (yeah, I know, but I'm trying to sound upbeat) faces. Back in prehistoric times, when I was in school, that meant sharpening lots of pencils, trying to get last year's chalk mark remnants off the board, obtaining a stack of clean projector transparencies and duplicator carbon sheets ... ouch! Teachers these days do much the same, although we've (thankfully) traded much of that ancient technology for shiny Chromebooks, iPads, and desktop computers.

Over the past two school years, I've had the good fortune and privilege of meeting lots of passionate teachers the world over, and many have shared the innovative ways that they are using our FREE Adobe Spark in their classrooms. Last year I shared some of these ideas here on this blog, and that post proved so popular that I am posting an update and including additional suggestions that teachers have since shared with me.
