Ignite the creativity in every student.
At the heart of everything Apple does is a single vision—to create amazing products that enrich people’s lives. It shapes not only what they make, but how it’s made and what they care about. Apple technology is designed to give students new ways to experience and demonstrate their learning—no matter what type of learners they are.
Why Apple and Education
Apple is a free professional learning programme designed to support and celebrate educators who use Apple products for teaching and
learning. The programme helps educators build skills on iPad and Mac that directly apply to activities with their students and earn recognition for
the new things they learn. It’s easy, flexible, fun and inspiring — just the way professional learning should be.
The programme is open to all educators and is a great way for schools and education authorities to offer free professional learning that their staff
can work through together. When educators sign up for Apple Teacher, they start a self‑paced journey through the Apple Teacher Learning Center
— a personalised online learning experience that can be accessed from anywhere! Perfect for educators who are new to Apple products or even
those who have been using them for years — whether they have a single device or one for every student — Apple Teacher has the tools teachers
need to use iPad and Mac to connect with all learners.
Augmented Reality on iPad
Get students creating with augmented reality on iPad
Augmented reality (AR) on iPad can transform how students learn about and connect with the world around them. Turn your classroom into the cosmos. Make a history lesson as vivid as the present by restoring ancient artifacts. Or even peer inside everyday objects to understand how they’re put together. iPad is built to move and packed with advanced technologies like accelerometers, powerful cameras, and an operating system designed with AR specifically in mind. All together, iPad creates an experience that’s simply not possible on other platforms.
Privacy and Security
Apple products are designed with an integrated approach to privacy and security
Apple builds privacy and security into all their products from the ground up, including apps and services for education. When schools set up accounts, devices, and content for their students in Apple School Manager, they can be sure that Apple will never sell student information, and will never share it with third parties to use for marketing or advertising. They never build profiles of students based on their online behavior, and they don’t collect or use student information other than to provide relevant educational services.
Apple products are designed with features to empower students of all abilities
Apple believes every student has the right to a quality education—an education that’s creative, collaborative, engaging, and relevant. And technology can enable and allow all students, with every type of learning style, to explore and open new doors to possibilities.
Apple’s approach to accessibility is different from many other companies. Accessibility is part of the hardware, software, and operating system design process so it’s an integral element of the user experience. The breadth and depth of accessibility features have been built to address a wide array of special needs and help students who experience challenges with vision, hearing, motor skills, and learning and literacy.
Management and Deployment
Powerful tools from Apple support IT managers with their deployments and teachers with their classroom workflows so students can learn in a secure and personalized environment. Apple has designed powerful tools for schools to use for deployment, to help teachers with classroom workflows and to enable a personalized learning experience for every student.
