Creative Cloud and Handwriting

Elementary teachers can use Adobe Creative cloud and Adobe Illustrator to help students practice and hone those handwriting skills. PLUS, students can create cool vectors that can be used in various presentations, digital journals, blogs, or any major project. This will also help teachers meet the state Technology Applications TEKS in Texas.

Check it out here! Only one more day for the educators discount.

Teachers can use Creative Cloud with the Ideas app for iPad to help students strengthen their handwriting skills. Students can use the pen tool to practice their print or cursive skills, save it to the cloud, and augment it in Adobe Illustrator. Students now have a vector of their writing that can be modified to be used in various presentations. Crests, symbols, and other graphics can be added to their writing that can be used across a variety of software programs; web-based as well as computer-based programs such as digital journals or online blogs.
