Being an Adobe Education Leader


If you are an enthusiastic educator who has previously leveraged your abilities and expertise to promote the integration of Adobe solutions in educational institutions or schools, Adobe is interested to recruit you as an Adobe Education Leader!

Adobe Education Leaders (AEL) are educators who have used their unique abilities and expertise to promote excellence in education through the integration of Adobe solutions in the classroom, school, or district. The Adobe Education Leaders program highlights the successes and contributions of innovative educators involved in primary and secondary education utilizing Adobe tools and applications.

Adobe Education Leaders are dedicated to enhancing creativity, communication, and collaboration and improving the teaching and learning experience. They share their expertise through technology-based projects and at workshops, seminars, and conferences. These leaders develop standards-based curriculums and educational resources that are used worldwide.

When new products are developed or existing products are revised, the Education Leaders are among the first to support learning objectives through effective use of the technology. As leaders in their field, they are dedicated to creating a dynamic learning environment for students and teachers.

Through the Adobe Education Leaders program, a network of outstanding educators inspires each other, share ideas, and collaborates with peers in the education community. Leaders can be classroom teachers, district administrators, technology coordinators, in-service specialists, college faculty working in the field of education, or education consultants.

Once an Adobe Education Leader is accepted into the program, he or she will be an AEL for 2 years and renewal is subjected to active participation and contribution.
