Claudio Zavala: Hearing from Your Learners with Adobe's Creativity Tools

Claudio and I talk about hearing from our students with tools that empower them to create. Specifically, Adobe's tools Spark Video, Premiere Rush, Premiere Pro, Spark Post, Spark Page, Photoshop, Illustrator, Fresco, and Audition. Also, audience questions about sites to use for surprise inclement weather folders for elementary schoolers and a Google Sheets conundrum.
