Education technology charity London Grid for Learning (LGfL) has formed a partnership with software company Adobe to give schools free access to Adobe Creative Cloud.
LGfL said it will provide children in over 3,000 schools thoughout the UK with access to digital tools used for graphic design, video editing, web development and photography, which come with a set of mobile applications and optional cloud services.
In addition, they will receive dedicated support and free access to Adobe Spark for Education, an integrated suite of storytelling applications that enable students to create mobile and web content.
The charity said the move is part of a common long term objective of equipping teachers with the tools to encourage creativity in the classroom and support the development of problem-solving skills.
It is making the resource available as part of its Let’s Get Digital subscription, which also includes access to its high speed broadband network.
Impact on learning
John Jackson, chief executive officer of LGfL, said: “I’m very excited by our new strategic partnership with Adobe which not only saves schools money but will accelerate the amazing Creative Cloud platform into UK education. I can’t wait to see the impact on learning outcomes as I believe that we are placing a fantastic creative resource into the hands of the most creative nation in the world – and making it cost effective to do so!”
LGfL is a community of schools and local authorities that provides various digital services to its members.
