July is Be Involved Month at Adobe, a time for us to celebrate our core value of getting involved. What is heart-warming is to see that not only Adobe as a company, but every employee of the generation is increasingly realizing the importance of giving back to the society.
CSR projects enhance the meeting experience by increasing attendee satisfaction levels, creating strong bonds among colleagues and employees and enforcing the power of a meeting at the destination.
Project Smile is a ray of hope which aim to create a day that would shine a spotlight on nurturing children and young minds by giving them a platform for growth. Through a broad range of engagement activities, games and visual volunteerism, we at Adobe seek to create value for society and bring joy to every child’s live. The event believes in creating stronger foundations for a brighter tomorrow.
Through Project Smile, Adobe gave a platform to the budding minds at Sai Siksha Sansthan, Noida to titillate their creative potential.
The children were inspired to make best use of the colors and paint the canvas red with their beautiful colors choices. Through this initiative, each employee made a sincere attempt to inspire and applaud the talent inherent in these children. The big idea was to give wings to the young minds’ imaginations.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, how many powerful stories can a wall tell? Painting school’s wall here made us believe how important is infrastructure for the education for each child. Every color added to the wall is addition to help the kids grow with visual belongingness.
The wall painted was now a canvas for them to do the story telling and add abundance of imagination and stay connected. The atmosphere in which each kid felt personally engaged and experienced with time.
CSR Programs – The Feel-Good Activity That Pays Off
Each year Be-Involved Event volunteers’ time to make a difference in the communities where they work and live. From providing meals to restoring critical habitats to cleaning up , Adobe volunteers are committed to making their communities a better place.
Games and Activities helped to keep the children engaged. These activities help them hone their skill levels and made them feel recognized.
The kids enjoyed thoroughly during game activities such as Dumb-Charades, Dance-Music Sessions and not to forget the Party Bounce, which was an instant hit with everyone.
Who doesn’t like to play classroom games? Not only are games fun, interactive and social, but they’re also great tools for learning. On the other hand, classroom games add flair to student involvement to more yet necessary tasks like teaching or even competing. Adding an element of competition motivates and energizes students.
The learning style of every student plays a key role with things like “watching/listening.” I am sure, you would affirm that definitely a visual teaching makes you a better learned.
Here’s a example of how learning can benefit from this cognitive demand. A play was organized by the students of the school, with the help and involvement of Adobe employees, to highlight and identify social issues with solutions. After which, a conversation was initiated to build the interest of the kids and help them judge the right and the wrong. Every kid realized that social issues that they often see can have a solution. Every kid pledge for the cause and I think, this nailed the entire purpose of the event.
The school were thrilled, as evidenced by the glowing letter of thanks from the headmaster and various pupils. But it was the impact on the staff that was most revealing.
The rule of thumb is simple – At all times, all students must interact with new learning. The work of education is difficult, but we must try to keep students cognitively engaged. It begins with gaining and keeping their attention and interest. Once we have that attention and interest, what we do with it will make the difference with reaching our instructional goals. Real learning is indeed, not a spectator sport.
