Creating With Adobe Spark

Anastasia Hanneken

Adobe Spark is one of my favorite technology tools. They make it easy to look like a rock star! Adobe Spark allows you to create:

  • Graphics
  • Websites
  • Slideshow style videos

If you are an educator the program is Free – Yes! I said free! to use. Simply sign up with your school email.

A good friend of mine, Elissa Malespina, recently posted on social media an Adobe Spark video she created for her new school district where she introduced herself. I thought this was such a fabulous idea, and since I just started in my new school, I decided to use Elissa’s idea as inspiration.

You can view my video slideshow below:

So How Does Adobe Spark Work?

  2. Create your account. If you have a Google account already you can sync your Adobe Spark account to your Google account.
  3. You can choose a ready made template or make from scratch
  4. Remember there are three choices (Graphic, Website, or Video)
  5. Add in your text, photos, and videos
  6. Share to social media or create a link to easily share with anyone.

To Make a Graphic

  5. Choose your graphic(s)

To Create an Adobe Page (Website)

To Create Your Video

This is honestly one of the easiest presentation designing programs I have ever used. Since the program is free, it is a wonderful tool to use with students, but can also help make your presentations shine.
