Making Creativity SPARKle in Teaching and Learning
February 28 @ 10:00 am – 10:45 am
Adobe Spark Video is a free tool that enables the creation of videos that are like visual stories. In this session, Matt Mooney, a History professor at Santa Barbara City College, and Amber Greene, a student of Matt’s, will discuss how Adobe Spark Video was used to cultivate creativity in Matt’s teaching and Amber’s learning. Get teaching tips and advice from Matt and learn from Amber about the impact of using creation as a form of assessment.
