Adobe is committing over $300 million in software and professional development to the White House’s ConnectED initiative.
Adobe’s commitment consists of software for students and educators, including: creative products Adobe Photoshop Elements, and Adobe Premiere Elements which includes complimentary access to technologies from Dolby Laboratories; Adobe Presenter and Adobe Captivate for e-Learning curricula; and Adobe EchoSign electronic signature software for improving schools’ administrative processes. In addition, Adobe’s Education division and the Adobe Foundation are providing a range of teacher training resources from the company’s Education Exchange program and the Adobe Youth Voices initiative. The commitment is aligned with the Common Core State Standards Initiative, which recommends that media skills be integrated throughout core curricula.
