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.
