New Delhi: Adobe has established a collaboration with the Indian Ministry of Education to promote the use of Adobe Express as a tool for encouraging student creativity in the classroom. Adobe Express is a streamlined, intuitive, and AI-powered tool for creating original content quickly and easily.
On Tuesday, at the G-20 Leaders’ Summit in India, the collaboration was revealed by Shri Dharmendra Pradhan, Indian Minister of Education, Skill Development, and Entrepreneurship.
By 2027, the new creativity and digital literacy project in India is expected to impact 20 million students and 500,000 instructors throughout the country via Adobe Express-based curriculum, training, and certification.
Free access to Adobe Express Premium will be made available to all K-12 schools in the nation, and the project will also fund teacher training and education. Creative and generative artificial intelligence, design, animation, video, and other upcoming technologies will all be covered in new courses, workshops, and certifications based on Adobe Express tools and capabilities.
After attending the course, teachers will be awarded the Adobe Creative Educators credential. The program’s goal is to provide teachers with the knowledge and tools necessary to foster an environment where children are encouraged to think critically, communicate effectively, and work together to solve problems.
Adobe’s Mala Sharma, VP and GM, of Global Education and Adobe Express, explains that the company’s recent relationship with the Indian Ministry of Education is an essential milestone in Adobe’s ongoing dedication to education and to giving students in India the tools they need to make a difference in the world.
“In the time of digitisation, new ideas, new innovation and creativity, this partnership is going to create a new standard and benchmark for students,” said Dharmendra Pradhan.
Earlier, Adobe and the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) teamed together in 2022 to provide Express to 75,000 teachers in 10,000 universities.
