On Thursday 7th September, a group of students from Davidson High School visited the Adobe Sydney office for an Adobe day.
Adobe Days are when a group of students work with an Adobe expert to help develop their 21st century communication and creativity skills. In this case, the focus was on Video literacy with Adobe Premiere Pro.
Some of the students had previously worked with Premiere Pro but, for the majority of these students, this was their first experience with the software.
Adobe Premiere Pro is part of the Adobe Creative Cloud suite of software which is provided by the NSW Department of Education to all their teachers and students. Earlier this year, the Victorian Government followed the lead of NSW and provided the Adobe Creative Cloud to all of its secondary school teachers and students. Most other school and university systems around Australia also have access to the Adobe Creative Cloud and Adobe Days are a great way to share the value of this amazing creativity software.
During this particular Adobe Day, three of the students and their teacher Jessica Peade were asked to share their experiences with Adobe software to all the Adobe staff throughout Australia & New Zealand during a special meeting. They were also told about the Adobe in Education Active use program and how between January & August in 2017, the program has reached an impact of over 240,000 teachers and students in Australian & New Zealand.
The Adobe staff were pleasantly surprised with the impact Adobe software has been making in education and very impressed with the contribution of the Davidson High School.
Jessica Peade is an Adobe Campus Leader which is a global leadership program for educators who are passionate about working with Adobe applications to enhance creativity in their classrooms.
