Adobe, the American multinational computer software company, has partnered with India’s Ministry of Education to provide schools with Adobe Express-based curriculum, training and certification.

The digital literacy initiative aims to revolutionise creative expression in classrooms using Adobe Express.

The initiative is expected to impact 20 million students and 500,000 educators across India by 2027. The partnership was announced ahead of the G20 Leaders’ Summit in India.

“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, Union Minister of Education, Skill Development and Entrepreneurship.

Abode believes this will help foster new collaboration, communication and creative skills within the classroom. As Abode Express is an AI-first, all-in-one content creation app, that is being used for next generation of creators, marketers, data scientists and business leaders, it can help students to first succeed in school, and then enter the workforce with competitive advantages.

Under this partnership, Adobe will provide K-12 schools across the country with free access to Adobe Express Premium, and professional development of educators.

The curriculum, training and certification based on Adobe Express tools and capabilities will be rolled out to empower students and educators with topics covering creativity, generative AI, design, animation, video and other emerging technologies.

“Digital and creative literacy are foundational skills in bringing ideas to life. At Adobe, it is our mission to make our technology accessible to everyone. Over the years, Adobe’s creativity and digital skilling programs have touched the lives of millions of students across India, and we are excited to further our impact with the launch of this new program,” said Prativa Mohapatra, VP & MD, Adobe India.

In 2022, Adobe joined hands with All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) to empower 75,000 faculty in 10,000 higher education institutes with access to Express.
