Adobe is investing in the future, announcing the Adobe Digital School Collection for K-12 students and educators this week. The software bundle includes the recently announced Adobe® Photoshop® Elements 9 and Adobe Premiere® Elements 9 software, as well as Adobe Acrobat® X. It does not stop there - Adobe Contribute® CS5 and Adobe Soundbooth® CS5 software are also included in the collection.
This new cross-platform solution is essentially a multimedia toolkit which provides students and teachers the ability to create multimedia projects with photos, videos and audio; publish websites, blogs and podcasts; and create ePortfolios – that's right, all those 21st century digital literacy skills needed for academic and professional success.
“When teachers incorporate images, sound and video into their lessons, students get more engaged. The Digital School Collection helps them create a project-based learning environment so students can deepen their understanding of the subject matter,” said Bob Regan, director of worldwide K-12, Adobe. “Plus, students can create their own multimedia projects and easily encapsulate them in an ePortfolio to showcase their work to prospective colleges or employers.”
The solution is available for the first time for both Windows® and Macintosh.
