The Adobe Education Leadership Forum 2010 is the place to be inspired and to get ideas on adopting and implementing changes that will impact the way teaching and learning happens in your country and education institution. To be well-positioned for a workforce where technology literacy, creativity, communication and collaboration skills are critical, students need to start mastering digital media tools from a young age.
