The Adobe Digital School Collection is Awesome! #EdChat

I’m really excited to be talking about great new offer from Adobe. The Adobe Digital School Collection (ADSC) is a bundle offered by Adobe that includes Adobe Acrobat X Pro, Adobe Premiere Elements 10 and Adobe Photoshop Elements 10. I was able to get my hands on the software and I am very excited by what I saw. One of the things I have tried to do in my classroom is foster an environment of creativity and collaboration. One of the things I have seen in my classes over the years is that my kids have great ideas for projects and they want to get those ideas out, but they did not have access to the tools to do it. The ADSC would be great in a computer lab for students to engage in content creation. My students could take create pictures and/or video and use Photoshop and/or Premiere to create some amazing projects.

One of the things that might make an educator hesitant to introduce new software to student and staff, but there are many great resources for educators to pull from to make using the new software much easier to handle. The Adobe Education Exchange is a great place to see lessons other educators have created using these products. I have spent some time on the Ed Exchange and I have seen some really awesome lessons. Those lessons can serve as jumping off points for lessons new teachers to Adobe. All new software will take some time to get used to how it works. but there are great resources available to support any educator that might need the extra help. Here are some how to video highlights for each of the programs:

ADSC is only available through licenses of 50 or 100 seats. The 50 seat licenses costs $2,000 and the 100 seat licenses cost $3,500. That might seem expensive, but if you look at how much each one of these three programs would cost on their own, it is an amazing deal. I love the idea of having my students use these tools to creatively present their projects in any way they want. It will take some time for the students to get used to using the software, but kids are fast learners when they have an opportunity to be creative. I very much encourage all of you to check out ASDC and see how you might use it in your school with your students. Click here for more information on Adobe School Digital Collection.

Stay tuned for more information on the Adobe Digital School Collection.


I was sent a copy of the software for the purpose of this and future reviews.
