Creativity in High School

 You're Invited.

Creative skills help students become better problem solvers, communicators, and collaborators. They explore more and experiment more. They tell richer stories and find their own unique voices. And they carry all these skills through everything they’ll do in school and beyond. No matter what the world of tomorrow brings, secondary students benefit from learning to express themselves creatively while developing their capacity for innovation.

Whether students are using Adobe or Apple apps, exploring creativity in drawing, photography, video, music, and augmented reality has never been more flexible and engaging.

 What you'll experience

  • Explore what’s new on Mac and iPad for secondary learners in the creative arts and communications technology.
  • Discover how iPad, Apple Pencil, and Adobe's mobile apps work seamlessly to enable new forms of creativity that will transform your workflow.
  • Learn how you can start a project on iPad and finish it on Mac. This is great for starting projects in the field or on the go.
This session is offered in two time slots. If you’d like to build skills in advance with the Apple creative apps used in these sessions, please sign up for Apple Teacher.
