we are so lucky to have Suzanne here to share with us today!!

01:23 - @bcdtech Maureen
I've used it a bit myself, but am looking for ways to use in class- with kids who are under 13. Wondering what's the easiest way to set this up- so that I can see/control accounts, etc.

01:50 - Peggy George

07:01 - Peggy George
thanks Paula! We have included a bunch of links from Monica Burns in our Livebinder today!

07:21 - Suzanne Laisney
I wanted to know when someone can answer if the capability on an iPad to create on spark video is the same or is it more powerful on the browser and laptops?

07:33 - Peggy George
when the video comes up be sure to click on play

07:57 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Great Peggy. I've learned a lot about using Adobe Spark from Monica's posts.

08:06 - Ben 1
oh I'm using an iPad

08:27 - Peggy George

09:12 - Peggy George
this is the youtube link:

09:41 - debschi
Wow! way more robust than last time I used!

10:57 - Peggy George
the video is also in the Livebinder so you can view it later if you had problems seeing it.

11:06 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I've included Adobe Spark as one of the choices on my presentation board -

11:32 - Peggy George
awesome Paula!! Thanks for that link!

11:55 - KimTAZ
I am using it right now to gather all the green screen videos (done in DoInk) students created yesterday while "exploring" with the app and tech. Love how easy it is to use!

11:57 - Peggy George (Adobe Spark Edu Guide)

12:00 - Ben 1

12:13 - Peggy George
Welcome jdW!

12:39 - KimTAZ
Can numerous students log in at the same time?

12:48 - KimTAZ
When using the classroom account?

13:42 - Suzanne Laisney
Is there any way to bypass the login for teachers on iPads when using classroom account? It takes so much time and my password doesn't save

13:50 - @bcdtech Maureen
Would love to see a teacher dashboard

13:55 - Peggy George
that is great to know about the under 13 students

14:06 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Here is an Adobe Video made by one of my students last year that we uploaded to Seesaw -

14:14 - KimTAZ
@bcdtech - yes! A dashboard would be great for management.

14:17 - Doug Henry in San Leandro, CA
@KimTAZ: it works ok for my classes - students save work with their name in the filename.

14:20 - Peggy George
great question Suzanne L! Lorie will ask Suzanne during Q/A

14:29 - KimTAZ
Doug - thx!

14:49 - Suzanne Laisney
Thank you

15:07 - Patti Ruffing
I want to echo Kim's question regarding how many can be logged in at the same time if the students have to be in the teacher's account.

16:30 - Suzanne Laisney
Many can. I use it in this way Patti R

16:45 - Ann Louise 1
I see the three options on my iPad screen

16:54 - Peggy George
we had a fantastic presentation a couple weeks ago by Jennifer Casa-Todd about moving students from digital citizenship to digital leadership! Love that concept!

17:22 - Peggy George (Adobe Spark Post app for creating graphics for iPhone and iPad)

17:22 - Doug Henry in San Leandro, CA
@Patti: I've had 12 or more students working at once - it depends on your bandwidth since it's a browser app

17:22 - debschi
Definitely going to go to archives for that bone

@Doug thanks, I am thinking about a class with iPads, wondering how it works when students all click + to create a new project, will that get mixed up, would it be better to stagger the new project creation

19:53 - Peggy George
All of these fantastic resources are in the Livebinder so you can check them all out later!

20:30 - Ann Louise 1
THank you for Livebinder, Peggy.

20:35 - Doug Henry in San Leandro, CA
@Patti: good question - we run desktop Win 10 - no mobiles...

20:48 - debschi
My favorite scaffold for finding images which best convey meaning

20:55 - Peggy George
those kids are so cute!!

21:26 - Ann Louise 1
So full of love and positive energy.

21:41 - Patti Ruffing
I have just started working at an all iPad school, coming from chromebook/ipad/windows10 so I am in an adjustment period

21:57 - Ann Louise 1
And I have just moved into a Chromebook school.

22:14 - debschi
@Patti Totally empathize!

22:18 - Peggy George (Adobe Spark Inspiration Gallery for Education)

so many amazing ways to use it!!!

25:55 - Peggy George
I love how you can use multiple tools to connect in Spark!

26:09 - debschi
Think it's going to stay free? Is their thought that this is a precurser to Adobe Suite

26:25 - Ben 1
can you put links there?

26:26 - Peggy George
great question debschi

26:27 - stidmama
This looks like a great way to get kids engaged.

Here is a link to a Spark that promoted an elementary library.

28:11 - debschi

I love the idea of having students do their research with Adobe Spark!

29:21 - Sharon Gullett
Great idea debschi. Love Smore but hate it is no longer free

29:46 - Peggy George
ooohhh you have a video on ISTE student standards! :-)

29:53 - stidmama
Right now there are so many tech things happening in our school I am not sure I have the time or energy to add Spark, but thinking it might be a great thing to use mid-year when I can get the iPad cart. Would be a good independent work tool for times I am working with groups.

30:08 - Peggy George
Spark Video Planning Pages from Monica Burns:

30:19 - KimTAZ
Spark on Chromebooks...our district won't make this available since the apps are not part of the Google Play. They are in the Adroid store. I really want to be able to use this and would like any advice you might have to offer. (Forgot about this when setting goals and creating lessons for next month! Argh!)

30:23 - Peggy George (Suzanne’ video tutorials)

31:46 - Peggy George (5 Spark Activities for English Language Learners)

31:53 - debschi
Is there a way to easily publish Sparks to open web..thinking video and Suzanne's om ISTE standards!

32:03 - Lorie Moffat
Spark is working in Suzanne's browser.

32:37 - Peggy George (Spark 101 Educator Resources)

33:10 - Peggy George
you can embed Spark videos on your website

34:03 - Patti Ruffing
Is there a way to format the text or is it just determined by the theme you choose?

34:17 - debschi
Can you record video within application?

34:29 - Suzanne Laisney
Can animated gifs be added?

34:35 - Ben 1
can you include animated gifs?

34:47 - Stacey Sallee 6
I know what you're going to do!

35:14 - Suzanne Laisney
@Ben and I are on same wavelength! Lol

36:04 - Peggy George
thanks for adding your questions to the chat!! Lorie will ask Suzanne when she finishes her presentation

36:20 - Sharon Gullett
Are all Sparks public or can you make them private?

36:27 - Peggy George
Can you only download the video if you are the creator?

36:46 - Peggy George
loved seeing that demo!!!!

36:57 - debschi
@Sharon I think they're automatically private, no?

37:08 - @plnaugle (Paula)
So Adobe Spark videos can be downloaded and then you could upload them to your YouTube channel?

37:13 - Ben 1
hmmm I see a lot of potential for app smashing along with spark video

37:19 - Peggy George

37:54 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I created a class account on Adobe Spark for my 4th graders.

38:04 - Peggy George
that's the link on the slide right now :-) Lots of great resources!

38:32 - Ben 1
can the class account be integrated with google classroom?

38:38 - Ann Louise 1
Very glad to be back into Saturday noon connection CLASSROOMwith 2.0 LIVE. Looking forward to regular attendance

39:06 - Peggy George
fantastic Ann Louise! So glad you can join us!!

39:58 - debschi
So not searchable

39:59 - Patti Ruffing
So am I correct in thinking that if I had a class of 13 year olds they would create their own accounts but I would have no approval rights on what they post? No teacher controls built in for individual student accounts?

40:19 - Peggy George
these are great questions!!!

40:21 - KimTAZ
Am I able to create a classroom account using the same password that I used for my original account?

40:56 - KimTAZ
Educator account - is there a particular spot we go to in order to create a classroom account?

42:03 - Peggy George
but if you post the video on youtube or another site there are many collaboration options

42:40 - Patti Ruffing
so a classroom account is just a personal account created by the teacher

43:08 - Ann Louise 1
Must go to choir, thank you.

43:17 - debschi
Did we answer abt recording video within application?

43:31 - Peggy George
lots of great information in the Adobe Spark Guide for educators!

43:39 - Peggy George
that guide is also in the Livebinder!

43:54 - Patti Ruffing
my question regarding approval for what 13 year olds post?

44:03 - Patti Ruffing
no approval by teacher?

44:38 - Patti Ruffing
but you also then can't stop them before they post

44:45 - Anthippi Harou
Thank you! Great webinar! Looking forward to creating a classroom account!

45:07 - Peggy George
so is it better to have even those over 13 is to use the classroom account?

45:41 - Suzanne Laisney
Good solution Peggy

45:50 - KimTAZ
I would have students use their Google logins so I can monitor

46:11 - Peggy George
any further questions for Suzanne?

46:24 - KimTAZ
Yet another great show!

46:39 - Sharon Gullett
Was inspired with Donors Choose last week; again inspired this week with Adobe Spark. Thanks for all you do to keep teachers learning and motivated.
