Creation over Consumption

Remember, this month is all about what can students can create on their iPads to show mastery and understanding. iPads are not just consumption devices, they are the ultimate creation devices students can use to bring curricula to life.
Adobe Spark Video helps students create compelling animated videos in minutes. They can easily add and trim video clips to make their videos stand out. With the ability to pick from over 25,000 beautiful iconic images or adding their own photos to highlight what they have to say, students can take creation to a whole new level. They can even select the soundtrack that works best for their assignment. Then Spark automatically adds striking cinematic motion to their stories — no design experience needed.
Meet the New Adobe Spark Video! Featuring Video Clip Support!
