From education to employment

Wales is first country in the world to adopt Adobe Spark for Education nationally

@AdobeSpark for Education is now officially available bilingually through @HwbNews 

We’re delighted to announce that we’ve made Adobe Spark for Education available in both Welsh and English to Hwb users

We are thrilled to officially launch Adobe Spark for Education through Hwb. Wales is the first country in the world to deploy Adobe Spark on a national scale.

We’ve worked in close partnership with Adobe to make Spark free for teachers and learners in Wales, accessed using Hwb login details and supported by community, curriculum-ready resources and training, making it easy to embed creative and digital learning practices into lesson plans across all subjects.

Hwb users can use Adobe Spark for Education to easily turn ideas into beautiful graphics, web stories, and video presentations, through Spark ‘Post’, ‘Page’ and ‘Video’, developing the digital literacy skills of learners, helping to set them up for future success.

Adobe Spark was made available earlier in the year to help support teachers and learners during the period of school closures due to lockdown. The Hwb and Adobe team offered online training sessions which were attended live by over 1000 practitioners across Wales, and, to date, have been viewed over 4000 times on demand. 

Teachers across Wales can also join the Adobe Community Cymru team which has evolved into a self-sustaining support network of over 1000 educators. The Team is full of answers to questions and inspiration for using Spark in the classroom.

In addition, we supported a group of teachers in Wales to complete the Adobe Creative Educator Level 1 and Level 2 training – becoming the first teachers in the world to earn the badges. The teachers have created lesson plans and resources which we are making available bilingually on the Hwb platform and on the new Adobe EdEx page for Wales – 

The Adobe Edex page features carefully curated content relevant to the needs of teachers in Wales. The Adobe team have translated Adobe Spark for web into Welsh and we are continuing to work with Adobe to provide further bilingual resources.

We are marking the official launch of Adobe Spark through Hwb with an action-packed day of activity:

The 45-minute webinar is suitable for you if:

  • you are brand new to using Adobe Spark ‘Post’, ‘Page’ or ‘Video’
  • you want to see the latest features of the Spark tools
