Burbank Elementary Flexes its Creativity

ConnectED-blog

The next-generation of creative talent took the spotlight today at Burbank Elementary School in Hayward, Calif., as members of the U.S. federal, state, and local government and Adobe came for a visit.

Burbank Elementary school recently began including Photoshop and Adobe Premiere Elements instruction in its art classes to boost students’ digital skills thanks to a public-private partnership among Adobe, the White House’s ConnectED initiative, and the Turnaround Arts program.

During the visit, students interacted with Representative Eric Swalwell, Assemblymember Bill Quirk, Mayor Barbara Halliday, and several members of the Hayward Unified School Board. Adobe’s Tacy Trowbridge, group manager in Education Programs, spoke on the importance of preparing students to be creators, thinkers, and adapters to ensure their future success.
