This two-hour workshop has been created to build upon skills that may already exist as part of the educator’s tool box or have been learned in the beginner’s workshop on the use of technology to support teaching and learning. Participants will see how tools such as Adobe Spark with its three platforms, post, page and video, provides a powerful foundation to leverage other learning tools such as Edpuzzle, Flipgrid and Tour Builder, and this will form the basis of the workshop. Participants will also be introduced to an online global writing community Write the World, which opens opportunities for student writers to engage in authentic writing activities, hearing directly from authors, editors, bloggers, publishers and other young writers from around the world. This workshop requires attendees to bring a laptop or tablet.
