Creativity – It’s Our Future

Creativity – It’s Our Future

By Trevor Bailey, Director of WW Education   

“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.” – Albert Einstein

Einstein understood the importance of the imagination and his words remind us of where human creativity has taken us – and will continue to take us. Creativity is essential to innovation. And innovation gives us the new technologies and products that will drive the global economy forward.

How important is creativity to our future? A recent study conducted by Adobe in the U.S., “Creativity and Education: Why It Matters,” showed that 90 percent of US professionals believe that unlocking creativity is essential to economic growth and that it is valuable to society. The study also highlighted a growing awareness, especially among professionals, that creativity and creative thinking deserve a bigger role in education. In fact, 88 percent of U.S. professionals surveyed believe that creativity should be built into standard curricula. Today, companies are realizing the importance of the creative process in the workplace. They are looking for employees who can do more than specific tasks—they want employees who can also think differently and be innovative. To be successful, students need an education that emphasizes communication, collaboration and creativity.

With the challenges the world is facing today in our global economy, in our environment, and in social issues, the need for creative ideas has never been greater. That is why we are aligning our work to help students and educators realize the power of creativity and self-expression by providing digital tools, vibrant communities, resources, curricula, certifications and platforms that showcase student success. To better prepare our students for the challenges of today, we must graduate thinkers of tomorrow. Here at Adobe we believe creativity is no longer an elective; it’s the future.

New: Connect Videos

The Connect team has recently completed two new Adobe Connect videos: 1) an introductory video and 2) a new customer video showcasing SYNQ Studios. Here’s more info on both:

 New Adobe Connect Introductory Video: in this fast-moving five minute video, we provide a quick introduction to Adobe Connect.  Key Adobe Connect capabilities are shown throughout – including: highly interactive meeting environments, rich content sharing, exceptional mobile functionality, high definition video, persistent meeting rooms, interactive recordings, integration capabilities, security capabilities, and so on. The video also highlights market validation including PCMagazine’s “Editors’ Choice” Award as well as Forrester’s mention that Adobe provides the “best user experience.” Also included are mini-testimonials from several customers, including a senior executive from Xerox stating that Adobe Connect is “a game changer.”  

Customers and partners can find the videos on YouTube and AdobeTV (note that AdobeTV puts a 15 second ad in front of the video, so we would suggest using YouTube in the near term). We will also be going live with the video on our Adobe Connect homepage within the next week or so – that’ll be the ideal place to view the videos and catch all the latest Connect information. 

New Customer Video – SYNQ Studios: SYNQ Studios is a major motion picture visual effects and animation company located in Miami that has worked on a variety of top films for Hollywood. They used Adobe Connect at live event in Cairo this past spring as a way of delivering a rich, interactive webinar experience to remote attendees – thus significantly increasing their overall reach and providing attendees with an amazing experience. This video is available on the Adobe Connect website (first video on the left) and Adobe TV (runs after 15 second ad); we’ll be placing it on YouTube as well.
