Adobe’s support for the ConnectED Initiative by the President

Microsoft, Apple, Sprint and Verizon have been on the lead helping the president ensure that high speed broadband is available in schools and these companies have given away millions in order to help this cause which emphasizes the role of technology in today’s educational system. After too much contribution from these big names, now Adobe is following the lead too with bringing tons of software and educational resources for the children as well as their teachers.

This means that students across 15,000 US schools will get access Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements and there will be Adobe's Education Exchange, electronic signature software and presentation tech for distance learning for the teachers and school staff. The cost of all this commitment would mean that Adobe is spending about $300 million and it is not too much if we consider what the end result of this contribution will be. After all, nothing should be placed over the education of young children. Adobe clearly states that it aims to instill in children creative skills and having media-savvy kids interested in its production tools is just the beginning.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
