The multinational American software business Adobe has teamed up with the Indian Ministry of Education to offer schools curriculum, training, and certification based on Adobe Express. Using Adobe Express, the digital literacy initiative seeks to redefine artistic expression in classrooms.
By 2027, the effort is anticipated to have an influence on 500,000 teachers and 20 million pupils throughout India. Prior to the G20 Leaders’ Summit in India, the alliance was declared.
According to Dharmendra Pradhan, Union Minister of Education, Skill Development, and Entrepreneurship, “this partnership is going to create a new standard and benchmark for students in the time of digitisation, new ideas, new innovation, and creativity.”
“I commend the entire education ecosystem for having a cooperative Memorandum of Understanding with a significant multinational and global company, who with its knowledge and capacity will go beyond,” the speaker said.
Abode thinks that this will encourage students to work together more, communicate better, and be more creative in the classroom. Abode Express, an AI-first, all-in-one content creation software utilised by the next generation of marketers, data scientists, and business leaders, can assist students in achieving academic success before gaining an advantage when they enter the job.
As part of this collaboration, Adobe will offer free Adobe Express Premium access to K–12 schools across the nation as well as instructor professional development. Students and educators will be empowered by the curriculum, training, and certification based on Adobe Express tools and capabilities with lessons on creativity, generative AI, design, animation, video, and other cutting-edge technologies.
While 20 million students in K–12 schools throughout India will use Express, the AI–first, all–in–one, quick and easy content creation app with generative AI capabilities, to create content like posters, animated videos, web pages, PDFs, and more, 500,000 educators in schools and higher education institutions will receive upskilling in Express in order to use it to create digital learning content for classrooms and foster the creative skills of students. After completing the training, according to Adobe, educators will be certified as Adobe Creative Educators.
“Creative and digital literacy are essential for bringing ideas to life. At Adobe, we want to ensure that everyone can use our technologies. Millions of students across India have benefited from Adobe’s creativity and digital skill-building programmes over the years, and we are thrilled to expand our impact with the introduction of this new programme, according to Prativa Mohapatra, VP & MD of Adobe India.
We’re thrilled to equip India’s classrooms with the newest technology to revolutionise how students and teachers can utilise creativity to transform ideas into amazing content. Groundbreaking generative AI is at the foundation of Express.
In order to provide 75,000 faculty members working in 10,000 higher education institutions with access to Express, Adobe teamed up with the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) in 2022.
