HEI PROJECT DAY 2 - Creating Public Service Announcements with Adobe Spark

Example of PSA with Good Integration of Facts & Visuals Plus Call to Action

Student PSA on Water Conservation / Call to Reduce Water Consumption


Student PSA on Preventing Forest Fires

  • Poor choice of pictures & music
  • No narration. The word balloons just don't cut it.
  • Doesn't work thematically. Fires aren't a big problem in the winter & using Santa and cartoon critters minimized the seriousness of the topic.


Student PSA on Smoking

  • This is what happens when you don't have a plan/script. While these students collected powerful visuals, they did not connect them logically or even explain why most were used. Little evidence, no organization...not an effective message.
