Making videos is a great way engage students in planning, researching, writing, and revising their work. A video can be a final product that students are proud to share and their classmates are happy to watch. Adobe Spark offers an excellent tool for students to use to make videos.
I’ve been using Adobe Spark since the day it launched two and a half years ago. Like any good web-based service it has steadily updated with new options and features over those two and a half years. Perhaps the biggest update to Adobe Spark came in April of this year when Adobe introduced an education-specific version of Adobe Spark.
Some of the outstanding features of Adobe Spark include an integrated image search, a simple voiceover capability, and the option to insert and edit existing videos for inclusion in a bigger project. Last week I made an updated version of my Adobe Spark video tutorial to replace the popular one that published a couple of years ago. My new Adobe Spark video tutorial is embedded below. You can also watch it on my YouTube channel.
