Make creativity fun and easy for every student.

Fun is the key to engaging your students, and we make it easy for them to flex their creativity in Adobe Express. This all-in-one creative tool for beginners empowers your students to make anything they dream up — all in one place in a few quick steps. They’ll start with easy-to-use, education-focused templates, and from there they can decide how best to bring their ideas to life, communicate what they know, and make something they’ll be proud to share.

Give students key skills for future success.

With Adobe Express, students can build the creative and persuasive communication skills they need to be ready for next year and their future careers.  All they need is an idea, and they can show their thinking in standout creative work that they’ll feel inspired to keep improving as they push the limits of their imagination. Plus, the tool is all about teamwork, so students can get things done faster and build their collaboration chops.

Find instructional support for any lesson you imagine.

Adobe Express works with your go-to lessons and curriculums to remove any roadblocks to classroom engagement. There’s no need to come up with new materials or assignments — just have students create their reflections, reports, and presentations right in the app. And if you need a shot of inspiration or a helping hand, you’ll find free lesson plans and professional development courses on the Adobe Education Exchange so you and your students can create easier, stand out faster, and dream bigger.
