The Department of Education (DepEd) has offered annual Adobe Creative Cloud (CC) licenses to all public schools across the country to help instructors and students improve their digital literacy abilities.
The Information and Communications Technology Service (ICTS) of the Office of the Undersecretary for Administration (OUA) has teamed with Adobe to buy roughly 108,000 licenses and the Creative Nation Academy to share knowledge and expertise on the use of these tools. According to the Department of Education, the creative licenses were activated quickly after distribution.
“Because we are now in the creative development period, the Department of Education must grant these licenses to our public schools.” Because of the simplicity and adaptability of existing mobile devices, anyone may be a content creator,” said Alain Del B. Pascua, Undersecretary for Administration.
Undersecretary Pascua also stated that the Department is preparing students to be internationally minded and encourages them to adopt industry-standard software to improve their career prospects.
Meanwhile, the Department of Education’s Digital Rise Program has hosted a series of seminars on various productivity tools and design software. The initiative intends to provide adequate tools and software to all DepEd schools in order to foster technological improvements. It also intends to boost instructors’ creativity in the areas of digital and multimedia arts.
The Adobe Creative Cloud is a unified set of Adobe desktop software and mobile apps. This can be accessed via an Adobe Federated ID linked to the school’s email address, which was made available on January 15, 2022.
The Digital Rise Program, according to the Department of Education, is part of the Administration Strand’s Public Schools of the Future (PSOF) Framework, which is led by Undersecretary Alain Del B. Pascua and Assistant Secretary Salvador Malana III, and is overseen by Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones.
