The Adobe Storytelling Academy is a hands-on, integrated approach to storytelling that will provide participants the opportunity to take a deeper dive into the Adobe products that will unleash their creativity. This two-day academy will model different ways to engage students in storytelling and enable educators to leverage their knowledge of Adobe products to empower students to tell their stories. Participants will grouped according to interests. Day one will be spent deciding on a theme and gathering and creating original media. On day two, participants will divide according to the strands listed below to create a digital product using a variety of Adobe products. The end of day two will involve a showcase of all work created during the Storytelling Academy.
Spark (mobile) Strand
The goal of the Spark strand is to enable participants to create using Adobe Mobile tools. This will be facilitated through the introduction of three different Adobe Spark (mobile) tools; Spark Post, Spark Page, and Spark Video. After introductory tutorials on the different tools, participants will use the media gathered in day one to create works to support their group’s theme.
The goal of the Design strand is to enable different types of media projects with their students according to interests. Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, or Illustrator will be introduced and participants will then have the opportunity to create a digital artifact that incorporates their group’s theme. Sessions will be tailored to the participants’ interests, but might include photo correction, logo creation, infographics, and electronic publications.
The goal of the Video strand is to enable participants to create using Adobe Premiere Pro CC. After introductory tutorials on the video editing process, participants will use the media gathered in day one to create a video project to support their group’s theme.
