Spread Kindness, Not Covid - Celebrating Valentine’s Day During a Pandemic

February 5, 2021

As we move towards Valentine's Day on February 14th, many schools across the province will be considering how to honour the traditions of this day, while doing so in a safe way. The idea of handing out physical cards and baked treats is something that will be difficult amidst a global pandemic.

Although it would be easy to simply call it off and explain why this day isn't possible, teacher Matt Colpitts from the Learning From Home School (LFHS)/L'École Apprendre-chez-soi has come up with a creative solution to a real-world problem.

By using Adobe Spark, a powerful digital platform, he has found a way to ensure that students and their families can express feelings of gratitude and appreciation. "We have already seen so many things cancelled since the pandemic, and I wanted to ensure families had the opportunity to celebrate an often important and positive day. Now more than ever, students want to share, celebrate, and have something to look forward to within their school communities and beyond," said Matt, who teaches Digital Media at LFHS.

With Adobe Spark, students have the freedom of expression to choose how to share and in a way that empowers their voice. With the ability to create original graphics, animations, videos and webpages, students can create a full multimedia experience restricted only by their imagination.

Once their creations are complete, they can use a link to share with anyone, and in any way across the world. Through a text message, email, or platform like Microsoft Teams, their Valentine's Day message will land safely, and during a time we know is so incredibly important to stay connected.
