The Adobe Foundation and Discovery Education today announced a partnership to provide curriculum and resources to help educators weave digital media making into their teaching practice and actively engage students in gaining critical technology skills. Launched at Discovery Education’s International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) conference kick-off event, the new Adobe Youth Voices Essentials curriculum will be shared with educators by leveraging Discovery Education’s Discovery Educator Network (DEN), a global community of educators who are passionate about teaching with digital media, sharing resources, collaborating and networking.
Adobe Youth Voices (AYV) is the Adobe Foundation’s global philanthropic initiative aimed at providing young people with critical technology skills to better communicate their ideas, demonstrate their potential and take action in their communities.
The updated Adobe Youth Voices Essentials curriculum provides educators with access to a collection of resources, professional development experiences, classroom materials and a community of peer educators who have media-making experiences via the AYV program. Essentials’ curriculum, activities, video tutorials and webinars cover a variety of multi-media platforms, including digital photography, print, Web design, video and animation, plus guidance on how to exhibit student media projects.
“Discovery Education is pleased to partner with the Adobe Foundation to share this unique and innovative program with our network of educators nationwide,” said Mary Rollins, vice president, Discovery Education. “We believe that through this powerful curriculum, allowing students to impact and affect change in society through transforming media, we can give educators the confidence to help students explore their curiosity and learn important skills that transcend traditional learning experiences.”“Discovery Education is a leader in family and educational media and we share their commitment to empower educators to use digital media and technology to inspire their students through breakthrough learning experiences,” said Michelle Yates, director of corporate social responsibility, Adobe and executive director of the Adobe Foundation. “Launching the new version of Adobe Youth Voices Essentials at ISTE among an audience of educational professionals and having Discovery Education leaders be the first to preview it is an honor.”
