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.

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.

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.

Adobe Spark Guide For Educators And Classrooms

Students the world over (and their teachers) love Adobe Spark, and we love them using it. We built Adobe Spark with students in mind, and even chose "Spark" as the name because it's a small thing that can ignite something much larger. With Adobe Spark, students can bring their ideas to life and watch them grow. To help teachers and students use Adobe Spark, we created the Adobe Spark Guide for Educators and Classrooms which you are welcome to download, read, and share.
