With the current scenario, technology has come to be a prerequisite to each event or practice in school, hence being arrayed with the technical knowledge is imperative. A training session was facilitated by Adobe partner 1M1B whereupon the teachers were exposed to the enriching and exquisite tool – ADOBE EXPRESS . The application elicited the agenda of honing creativity skills to make classroom teaching more engaging Teachers of all disciplines could gain from a platform like this in which one can create webpages, presentations, videos, etc. with the ease of simple clicks. The demonstration given by the resource person included a hands on trial by each teacher which was later shared for reference and feedback. The times are changing by the blink of an eye and so it becomes important for the teachers to know how lessons can be presented through novel ways. This application lets one remix the already existing files and create interesting and unique designs that appeal to the learners. Towards the end of the workshop, teachers were asked to complete the Adobe online certification to get a certificate.
