Adobe Spark is now Adobe Creative Cloud Express. The software is available to faculty, staff, and students in K-12 schools. Adobe Spark has been available to MBHS for a few years and now we have Adobe Creative Cloud Express. The software is a creation tool for logos, flyers, documents, and more. It also includes editing tools for images, video, PDFs, and more. Great resource for projects large and small.
How to Access: Log in to ClassLink and open the Adobe Spark icon.
Hapara Focused Browsing is a great feature to guide and focus students to the correct website, quiz sites, and more.
Open Tabs is a fantastic feature for sharing URLs to learners within your class. You can also choose to focus your students to the newly opened browser tabs for a set period of time using the Focused Browsing feature.
When a Focused Browsing session is active, learners can’t open new tabs, swap to other tabs or browse to new sites or URLs.
Important NOTES from our testing:
Open Hapara from the icon in your ClassLink. Open the class you plan to focus browsing.
If students are using school Chromebooks - they should show up in your Hapara automatically.
If they are using personal devices, which we do not recommend, have them access Google.com and login with their school email. Then you should see them in Hapara.
We do not recommend using the preset timing tool because servers are not always in sync. Only launch Focus Browsing after students are in class.
Student will receive a message that a focused browing session is about to begin.
Teacher may setup the session so any tabs students had open previoys to session re-open - or they do not re-open.
MBHS faculty and staff PC desktops, Career Tech student labs, Foreign Language PC desktops, and our PC laptops, all have Windows 10. Windows 10 includes a built-in photo editor andvideo editing software. Watch the video below to learn more, including how-to steps.
Narrations and timings can enhance a web-based or self-running slide show. If you have a sound card, microphone, and speakers, and (optionally) a webcam, you can record your PowerPoint presentation and capture narrations, slide timings, and ink gestures.
After you have made the recording, it's like any other presentation that can be played for you or your audience in Slide Show—or you can save the presentation as a video file. Learn more...
