How do you make student work much more interesting, both for them and for you? We'll look at this in the context of simple video projects, including time to practice with Adobe Spark Video, which is perhaps the most user-friendly of all online video editing tools. If you've wanted your students to take their work to another level and think video might be the right tool to make it happen, then this session is for you! This session is geared toward classroom teachers. Participants will learn how to create simple videos for teaching and for a variety of student projects, as well as learn about opportunities to have students participate in free service and academic video contests.

Are your school building and grounds concerns overlooked due to more pressing needs?
- Has your school introduced new teaching and learning initiatives without adapting space?
- Are you dealing with declining enrollment compounded by budget shortfalls?
- Is your school safe and secure?
In order to be effective, the educational programs and needs of today’s schools require an increased level of specific building attributes and space adaptations. Renovations and upgrades should be planned improvements, not disruptive emergencies. And dollars spent on building improvements should advance the school’s educational goals and vision, and sustain them in the future. Join us to learn how you can use a step-by-step approach to jump-starting your school building improvements while ensuring that the financial support will be available to carry out the desired improvements.
