Free Online Lessons from Adobe in the Flipgrid Discovery Library
Adobe for Education and Flipgrid have joined forces to support educators and students with free online lessons featuring Adobe Spark and Creative Cloud lesson ideas. We are excited to announce the new Adobe for Education Partner Page in the Flipgrid Discovery Library. Teachers can visit the flipgrid.com website to access ready-to-use discussion prompts and activities for creativity to get students of all ages creating and sharing.
Flipgrid Discovery Library
Flipgrid, a free edtech tool for empowering student voice through video, just launched their new partner pages in the Discovery Library. The Discovery Library offers thousands of free and accessible online lessons crossing content areas and age levels. The new Adobe for Education lessons bring activities focused on creativity and creative problem-solving to the library.

Adobe for Education Content Collections
Adobe for Education Collections in the Flipgrid Discovery Library curate content ready for teachers to add to daily classroom activities for creativity and digital skills. Perfect for face-to-face or online learning, the lessons are organized into content Collections with topics such as Seeking Perspectives, Constructing Ideas, and Creative Expression. New lessons and Collections are being added each month.
Current Adobe for Edu Collections include free, online lessons from Adobe EdEx that are authored by expert educators from PreK-12 and higher education. Spotlight topics include Adobe lessons from the Khan + Create lessons and the Better Lesson teaching resources from EdEx.
Each of the lessons provides student prompts, information on grade levels and subject areas, and student samples. Teacher integration notes are also provided with links to the full lesson plans on EdEx and more information on Adobe tools.
Watch for more events and resources coming up with this new Adobe for Education and Flipgrid partnership. Be sure to hear community evangelists from both teams–Tanya Avrith from Adobe and Ann Kozma from Flipgrid– join to celebrate the new Adobe for Edu Partner Page. In their recent Instagram Live conversation, they walked through the lessons sharing highlights and not-to-miss features.
