Adobe has announced the latest edition of Digital School Collection (ADSC) for K-12 students and educators, available for Windows and Mac OS. The bundle - which gives students, including those with learning disabilities, a way to visually express what they've learned across curriculum - incorporates the recently announced Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 and Adobe Premiere Elements 10 software, as well as Adobe Acrobat X Pro. Together, ADSC allows students to create projects and classroom presentations that include:

*         polished photos and photo books

*         compelling movies with professional-quality effects

*         media-rich documents and ePortfolios

ADSC helps educators improve student engagement by encouraging creative expression, and teach critical media skills that prepare students for success in college and beyond, the announcement states. To equip teachers up for success, Adobe has published additional resources that can help educators deploy ADSC quickly and efficiently, including:

*         ready-to-use lesson plans, tutorials, tips and tricks and video lesson examples - all instantly available on the free Adobe Education Exchange

*        one- and two-day instructor-led onsite workshops through Knowledge Network Solutions, which give teachers hands-on experience using the software

*        online training through Total Training

Adobe also announced a new pricing model- Digital School Collection is now exclusively available as a 50- or 100-pack K-12 Site License through flexible Cumulative Licensing Program or Transactional Licensing Program plans, ensuring schools and districts can maximize their software budget through wide, cross-platform distributions. These site licenses also come with supporting resources for teaching 21st century skills and engaging students in cross-curricular learning through digital storytelling.
