Good news for elementary schools! Last week Macromedia announced a program which makes it easier than ever for K-6 schools to introduce Macromedia tools to teachers and staff, and in turn to make it easy for teachers to introduce these tools to students in the classroom. The Macromedia K-6 Site License includes Contribute 3 software for use throughout the entire school, plus 10 copies of Macromedia Studio MX 2004. The site license also includes teacher training and curriculum resources, such as a half-day Contribute workshop for training staff and teachers on how to create and edit web pages, plus a new Contribute classroom project that enables students to add information to a class website. Two sample projects for Macromedia Flash and Dreamweaver are also included to help introduce students to the industry-standard products in Studio MX. This combination of software and project-based curriculum projects will help get your students started using digital tools in core academic subjects, and will give teachers the resources they need to learn and integrate the projects into their teaching curriculum. This is available in the US and Canada with a suggested retail price of $1499.00, regardless of school size. Details at http://www.macromedia.com/buy/volume_license/k6/.

  1. Dave, I’d like to think so … I am sure that the UK team is working on this, but just in case they are not, I’ll forward your message.
