K–12 Education Solution Brief
Research shows that improving teacher knowledge and enhancing teaching skills are
essential components of raising student performance. Mindful of the evidence, today’s K–12
administrators realize the power of using digital technology to provide engaging learning
experiences for their teachers and staff. Administrators also realize how essential it is that
their teachers possess a broader array of media skills and the ability to integrate technology
across the curriculum.
These realizations, however, are accompanied by great challenges, including limited budgets,
less available time, and large geographic school districts. The traditional professional
development model—where teachers gather in one geographic location shortly before the
start of a new school year—no longer is viable.
Adobe, which understands the challenges K–12 schools and districts must overcome to
provide the best training possible, strives to provide the most effective and innovative Online
Professional Development infrastructure solutions—at prices districts of all sizes can afford.
Adobe solutions help K–12 administrators, teachers, and staff develop online content,
courses, and virtual learning environments; assess, track, and report progress; deploy
district-wide teacher training; and more.
