As we increasingly adopt technology in everyday life, the skills that employers are looking for are constantly changing. The employers of the future will be looking beyond just digital literacy skills, they will want their employees to be competent at complex problem solving, critical thinking and creativity – creative soft skills. These skills can be often hard to incorporate into the curriculum, but with the use of innovative applications and a creative approach, educators can start to instill these skill sets in their students – preparing them for their futures.
To understand Adobe’s vision within education and its successes, we had the pleasure of interviewing John Arboleda, Head of Primary & Secondary Education at Adobe across EMEA. John has worked within the education sector in both Europe and the United States for over 20 years. In 2019, John joined Adobe to expand their contribution as a trusted industry partner – supporting schools, policy makers, educators and students as they introduce and integrate digital and creative literacy into the curriculum, teaching and learning experience.
Adobe Spark for web and mobile makes it easy to create social graphics, web pages and short videos.
With Spark, available as a stand-alone subscription or as part of an Adobe Creative Cloud plan, you get full access to premium templates, Adobe fonts and more. You can even add your brand to make anything you create uniquely yours.
Watch this video to find out how Cave Spring Middle School, a public school in Virgina, USA has adopted Adobe Spark and invested in their students’ development of key skills, like creative problem solving.
With the Creative Cloud suite, teachers and students can benefit from 20+ desktop and mobile apps including Photoshop, InDesign and Premiere Rush, thousands of fonts for your projects, the ability to create and customise your own portfolio website, 100 GB of cloud storage for files and more.
There are a number of Creative Cloud plans available, depending on the size of your educational institution, its requirements and budget. You can compare Adobe’s Creative Cloud plans here.
Bring Adobe Creative Cloud to your school with affordable, easy-to-manage licensing options available through the Adobe Value Incentive Plan (VIP). You’ll enhance teaching and learning while helping students develop essential digital skills for college and career success. Benefits include:
Give your students, teachers and staff access to the latest industry-leading creative software so they can design, share, and publish compelling content across all media and devices.
A low-cost, flat-fee, single-licence purchase with one annual or multi-year contract for devices owned or leased by the school and users attending or working for the school.
Schools can use shared device licences to allow anyone to access Creative Cloud apps on a given device in the lab or classroom. Shared device licences also allow those with their own paid subscriptions to log into entitled machines and access their profiles and saved work. With named-user licences, schools can give a student or teacher access to Creative Cloud on any device they use, including personal devices at home.
Designed for an individual school or district, licensing options include a web-based Admin Console that makes it easy to centrally manage and deploy licences.
Listen to our podcast where we’re joined by John Arboleda (Head of Primary & Secondary Schools at Adobe), Tacy Trowbridge (Head of Global Education Programs at Adobe) and Kristy Hill (Education Learning Consultant at Phoenix) to discuss the ways in which Adobe’s offering can help incorporate creative soft skills into the curriculum and prepare students for their futures.
Adobe have introduced the Creative Cloud Student License Pack which introduces a new way to foster digital literacy and teach students some of the essential skills they need to succeed in the modern economy. The Student License Pack gives students access to the full power of Adobe Creative Cloud wherever they are, on any device and at a significant discount.
Adobe’s Creative cloud includes unlimited use of 20+ desktop and mobile apps and services, including Photoshop, Premier Pro, InDesign and so much more! They can also use Creative Cloud services such as Adobe Portfolio and Behance to showcase their work to potential employers.
With the new Creative Cloud Student License pack, students can use all the Creative Cloud apps and services on their personal computers, smartphones and tablets, rather than being restricted to a classroom computer. They can also access their files and projects across devices – giving them more flexibility to work wherever and whenever they want.
Assigning and managing licences is easy – your institution’s IT admins can quickly assign licences to individual students, add or delete users, assign products and add administrators in the Admin Console. They can also reassign the same licences to students as they come and go, as many times as they want.
Getting physical signatures from colleagues, students and parents can be challenging and time consuming – potentially delaying projects and costing your school, college or university money along the way.
Adobe Sign makes it easy for anyone in your institution to send documents for e-signatures – a legal way to get consent or approval on electronic documents or forms. Adobe e-signatures are legally binding and enforceable in almost every industrialised country in the world.
With just a few clicks, your institution can send documents internally or externally. You can then track each document’s status and with Adobe Sign, signed documents are returned 21x faster.
