Is it any good?
This exceptional video story creator is easy enough for beginners, but it can make anyone look like a pro. Adobe Spark Video: Movie Maker empowers teens (and adults) to make their own videos with text and voice overlays. Users receive plenty of guidance and inspirational examples about how to craft a compelling video story, not just one that looks good (although they look great, too). Adobe Spark Video: Movie Maker is a truly awesome tool for digital storytelling.
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about what makes a presentation such as the ones created on Adobe Spark Video: Movie Maker compelling. Is it the images? The typed text that explains what the viewer is seeing? The music?
Talk about fair use of images, videos, and songs with your kid, and about giving credit where credit is due. Remind your kid to ask permission of anyone who is in a video or image that they want to include in their presentation.
