What is Adobe Spark?
Adobe Spark is a suite of free tools that enables teachers and students to easily create and share visual stories in one of three formats: Posts (social graphics), Videos, and Pages (simple web pages).
To access Adobe Spark:
- Go to spark.adobe.com in your web browser on a computer or Chromebook. You can also download apps for each of the Spark tools onto an iOS device.
- Students and teachers can log in to Adobe Spark using their granitesd Google accounts rather than create another username and password to be remembered. Simple click on the Google button on the sign in page.
- Once you are logged in, you can view some examples of Sparks by clicking on “Inspiration” in the bottom right corner, access projects you have already created, or start a new project.
