How do you inject creativity into your classroom? I can’t believe a whole year has passed since the release of 40 Ways to Inject Creativity into Your Classroom with Adobe Spark. Ben Forta and I published this collection of lesson ideas and activities last fall and are celebrating the one-year book birthday already!
In the past year we’ve also switched publishers. We’re excited to partner with Elevate Books to share these 40 ways with you. To help celebrate the birthday of our book and our new partnership with Elevate Books, I am hosting a special book birthday celebration.
Adobe Spark Book
Here’s how it works… When you show proof of purchase for the book you’ll instantly get access to six bonus graphic organizers and an audio version of the introduction to the book. You also can jump into the introduction right away, playing it like a podcast. Then on November 6th, I’ll send you a special, brand-new webinar recording.
I know it’s a busy time of year and sometimes hard to carve out time on the calendar for a webinar. So I’m recording this one ahead of time. I’ll add captions and include a transcript, too. This recording will go over some new features in Spark. It will also take you through a bonus project idea you won’t find in the book. It’s a great opportunity to see Adobe Spark in action!
