Adobe to create affordable software for grade schools
on Thursday,October 21,2010 19:10
Grade school classes on graphic design can spark an interest in the industry and even encourage students to later pursue a career in the field. However, it's crucial that schools have the tools they need to properly teach students the basics of graphic design.
San Jose software maker, Adobe, announced this week that it intends to begin offering multimedia packages to schools at a discounted price of $49. Packages typically costs hundreds of dollars to professional companies.
"When teachers incorporate images, sound and video into their lessons, students get more engaged," said Bob Regan, Adobe's director of K-12 education. "The Digital School Collection helps them create a project-based learning environment so students can deepen their understanding of the subject matter."
The multimedia tool kit will contain all of the tools teachers need to teach virtually any subject, including art and graphic design. The Adobe Digital School Collection, as it has been named, will allow users to manage photos, videos and audio. Students will even be able to host podcasts and publish websites through the software, broadening their learning opportunities.
Graphic design jobs are expected to grow by 13 percent over the next eight years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
