When AFL footballer Bachar Houli was asked yesterday how he felt after helping his team Richmond win the 2019 Premiership, he responded by stating how humbled and grateful he was to be part of a successful team. That is exactly how I feel about being involved with the Adobe in Education Leadership community in advance of this week’s APAC Adobe Education Summit.
Summit – live to air
Adobe Education Leaders and Adobe Campus Leaders from across Australia and New Zealand are gathering at the Adobe Sydney Office for two days of inspiration and challenge this week. Both morning sessions on the Tuesday and Wednesday Oct 1 & 2 (starting at 8.30AM AEST) will be broadcast live via Vimeo Livestream for all educators to tune into for free via – http://bit.ly/APAC-live19
Adobe Education Exchange
The Adobe in Education Leadership community involves the pinnacle users of the Adobe Education Exchange which welcomed its 700,000th member earlier this year. Continuing the AFL theme, that is 7 times more people than were at the MCG yesterday for the 2019 Grand Final between Richmond and Greater Western Sydney.
If you are not already a member, please join this free portal of resources, tutorials, courses and discussions for educators who are interested in using Adobe tools to enhance creativity and productivity in their classrooms. As you use the Exchange, you earn points and once you have gained 300 points you qualify to potentially become an Adobe Campus Leader (ACL).
Adobe Campus Leaders
You don’t have to be an expert in any particular Adobe application to be an ACL. You do need to be a passionate educator, willing to regularly share your interest in digital literacy and creativity with your colleagues and students in K12 &/or Higher Education. ACLs are in regular contact with Adobe, they are asked to help run and support education events and in return for their contribution, they get free access to the Adobe Creative Cloud applications. ACLs who prove to have an influence wider than their own school or facility can potentially be nominated to be an Adobe Education Leader (AEL).
Adobe Education Leaders
AELs are at the highest level of Adobe’s Education Leadership Community. Not only do they get the same benefits as an ACL, they also have NDA status with Adobe allowing them access to beta applications and information about future Adobe applications and services before they are public.
Please tune-in online this Tuesday morning Oct 1 at 8.30 AM (AEST) via http://bit.ly/APAC-live19 to see what this international education community is all about as they strive to empower the next generation to be lifelong digital creatives.
