Another fantastic session, where Tim, Jerry Wong and I were joined by Max Schleser from Swinburne University in Melbourne, Australia.
Max is an experienced lecturer, researcher and author, who joined us to discuss using mobile devices to create video on the go. He expanded on this even more during the Deeper Dive event, completing two separate demonstrations for participants, one in end-to-end video creation in Premiere Rush on mobile, the next demonstrating some of the sophisticated ways he can manipulate 360 degree footage in Premiere Pro.
During this session I created an Adobe Spark Page to summarise what was covered tonight - this includes some useful links, screenshots from Max's presentation and more information about Max, his projects, his Behance profile and his published books.
This fabulous session with Tim Kitchen and Jerry Wong from Adobe included the talented Kev Lavery from TAFE Queensland. During our Inject Creativity session, we discussed his background in teaching and his current work with TAFE Queensland, as well as his work amongst the greater Adobe Educators Community.
Once in the Deeper Dive session in BlueJeans, Kev shared with us his approach to creativity through using the Restriction Method - placing deliberate limitations as a strategy to enhance, trigger and channel learning and creativity. Rather than stifling creativity, it provides a leaping off point for inventiveness.
Below you will find my Adobe Spark Page summary of tonight, including some links that Kev shared with us to help spark some creativity!
Another fantastic session was had with Tim Kitchen and Jerry Wong during the Adobe Inject Creativity Live Chat Show and Deeper Dive via BlueJeans.
The Spark Challenge tonight was ambitious - to create a Spark Video based on:
We did have one submission from the dilligent Sally Warrilow, who did a great job of working these elements in! Link to her work is here.
During tonight's sessions, we were joined by Dr Karen Sutherland from the University of the Sunshine Coast. Her area of expertise is social media, and she shared with us some of the stories of how she helps her students get relevant, timely, real world experience while developing their personal awareness of how social media can be used... as well as the impactful way it can influence their job prospects with potential employers! She included the links to some infographics about how employers view the social media presence of prospective employees, and how that influences their decisions about hiring.
Karen also shared with us some images from her calendar, taken at her local beach with her phone - they were truly stunning.
I delivered a little more of my Adobe Spark Video presentation tonight as well - I had about 7-10 minutes to cover and discuss the ways that Adobe Spark projects can be embedded, not just in eLearning platforms, but also how the projects that we create during the Spark Challenges set for Inject Creativity Live can be used as a part of our professional portfolios and blogs. I also discussed a tool I use, Squirrels Reflector, and how that can be utilised to create captures of the dynamic use of apps and browser activity on a mobile device (iPhone or iPad).
These resources are available below - if we have time in another session, I may cover the graduation of Spark Video projects into Adobe Premiere Rush, with a focus on sound 'polishing' to get a better final product.
In this week's edition of Inject Creativity Live, Tim, Jerry and I were joined by Craig Daalmeijer-Power and Paul McClean.
Our 30 minute Inject Creativity Live Chat Show was first, where we discussed an interesting (and 'retired') proposal to give students cash incentives for improved performance, and the pitfalls of such an approach in practice. We also discussed some of Paul and Craig's ideas for motivating their students. See the recording of the chat show below, as well as the embedded copy of my Adobe Spark Page from our Deeper Dive session in BlueJeans!
Next week we are joined by Karen Sutherland, who is a Lecturer at the School of Creative Industries at the University of the Sunshine Coast. She will join us during the Chat Show, and during the Deeper Dive she will demonstrate the creation of an Instagram story using Spark.
Join us via a range of social media platforms; the link to Tim's Spark Page for Inject Creativity Live is here.
Hope to see you there!

In this week's edition of Inject Creativity Live, Tim and I were joined once again by Jerry Wong as our moderator, and Michelle Dennis from Strathcona Girls Grammar in Melbourne (@michelledennis on Twitter).
We all had a fabulous chat about her school, and she went into some detail about her work in the #whatisschool movement, and her invitation to join Craig Kemp from across the Tasman in this space. For more information, check out his website and blog here:
We also discussed the unexpected digital professional development engagement that came out of the necessities of COVID-19.
Tim also has a personal and career connection with Strathcona - he taught there for over a decade, and the multimedia production space at the school was his proposal and brainchild.
During the Deeper Dive, Michelle presented the full version of the presentation from the Chat Show.
Tim introduced the new Adobe Education Leaders for 2020-2021 - which includes ME! Have to say, I am pretty chuffed!
If you are interested in having a sneak peek at the full range of resources I created, the links are below. I fully plan on adding this as a lesson on the Adobe Education Exchange, but feel that it may benefit from a little polishing beforehand:
This week, I plan on dropping some teasers for one of the practical projects I have been working on - check out my socials for those. The full project description and multimedia suite will follow on this site, and a polished finished product for this from a creative, numeracy and practical perspective will be added to the Adobe Education Exchange.
Thanks to anyone who has taken the time to read this. I hope July is a safe and happy month for you - see you around!
My day job includes designing, developing, writing, copy editing, creating and delivering training resources for staff and students (including video capture/editing and voice over/other post-production work for multi-modal resources). In my spare time, I like to take pretty pictures.
