Back to school with Adobe

Adobe puts its digital power into distance education for teachers and students.

As discussions grow in schools across the country, it’s one thing to prevent students from having access to more digital learning resources than ever before. Adobe is looking for ways to meet this need.

Many educators are experimenting for the first time with digital teaching and learning, as well as digital and creative projects, said, leader of the Adobe Global Education program. There is a huge increase in demand, especially for teachers who teach literature, languages, social sciences, and students.

Adobe Education Exchange supports 850,000 educators worldwide to teach all subjects and grades. They use professional development exchange tools to learn how to bring creativity and digital media to their students. Adobe’s main strategy is to provide quality faculties, regardless of geographic location, which is very important during this COVID period.

Last month, Adobe launched a new educational community, the Adobe Creative Educator program. This program provides even more tools and resources for professional development and community support for educators in elementary and higher education in all subjects, subject areas, and departments.

For other educators, it was an opportunity to deepen creative tools, as the issues that can help address these tools are most highlighted through distance education, there is also an increasing focus on digital tools that support self-expression and social and emotional learning, which are important today.

Learn the tools

When schools began closing in late February and early March, Adobe began responding quickly to the needs of educators and students around the world, switching to online teaching models overnight. Adobe Education Exchange launched a distance learning center in March with online resources, blogs, courses, and personal training.

The Distance Learning Center is an important platform for digital learning resources, including:

  • Conferences and webinars live and on-demand events with an emphasis on effective distance learning strategies;
  • courses, articles, and blogs that serve as valuable resources for distance teachers;
  • Paperless training center with lectures, homework, and paperless spreadsheets;
  • Wealth resources for educators to help them practice self-care and community support;
  • educational content on social justice to encourage diversity and inclusion in learning; IT IS
  • Adobe Digital Literacy Center, with Adobe Live.

A popular digital tool, Adobe Live, Working Hours is where students receive real-time assessments of their portfolios and courses, as well as career advice.

Adobe’s creative tools cater to a unique need for simple, engaging, and creative tools that enable students, educators, and parents to express, communicate, and share their opinions and experiences, Strong storytellers are needed more than ever in education.

Adobe access for all ages

The Adobe Education Exchange also drew a clear line between universal digital learning resources and age-specific digital academic resources and activities.

Adobe digital tools for students range from kindergarten to college:

  • Khan + Create Activity, a creative activity center for students of all ages that combines learning resources from Khan, Pixar, and Adobe;
  • Higher education projects consisting of activities, classes, and projects for professors and students at the university;
  • K-12 distance education projects, such as the creative challenge Save the Ocean and the literature and writing project to take a stand;
  • Primary school study area that advises parents on how to teach young children at home, as well as activities and courses for teachers;
  • An activity center for teens and college students that offers everything from Teen Vogue and Adobe Class 2020 Digital Yearbook to Adobe and Lady Gaga Creative Challenge.

There is an Adobe application for this

Educators use the Adobe Distance Learning hub to teach and many Adobe tools and programs to help with the process, protocol, and performance evaluation issues. Adobe Spark is a web application that provides narrative formatting instructions, while the Premiere Rush program enables teachers to edit videos on their phones. Teachers also use traditional Adobe, Illustrator, and Photoshop applications to create compelling presentations for their students.

We are also seeing an increase in the use of our productivity tools, such as Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Scan, as teachers and students move from paper to documents.

Social networks and YouTube as learning tools

In addition to the abundance of programs for teachers and students, social media and YouTube are also platforms that play an important role in providing content and learning opportunities for the Adobe Education Exchange.

Adobe for Education has its own YouTube channel and is also present on Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter. Adobe for Education also has its own brand blog.

The launch of the channel on YouTube was accelerated to meet the growing demand for educators during the first outbreak of COVID. The channel provides instructional videos, tutorials, lectures, and webinars from specialized educators and opinion formers, as well as educational content that can be shared directly with students.

Video is more important than ever. Teachers find and distribute instructional videos, create their own instructional videos to replace personalized instruction, and allow students to create their own videos as part of project-based independent learning.

Keep the community busy

To facilitate community engagement among Adobe Education Exchange users, they publish a bi-weekly newsletter with updates on free courses, workshops, and learning resources to ensure users get the most out of their experience.

The newsletter also addresses common issues of distance education, including lesson plans with Adobe programs, personalized courses, student projects with Adobe programs, and surveys to continually improve the user experience and usability.

We work closely with our product teams and industry experts to update learning content as products and the industry change, We have our own process of compiling and uploading content to the Adobe Education Exchange, based on the needs of students, educators, and institutions. Adobe’s digital and creative tools are still a great way to share your story with everyone. tell.
