Everyone Can Create
Everyone Can Create introduces students to new skills to express themselves, their ideas and what they’ve learned through music, video, photography and drawing. They built a collection of Everyone Can Create guides designed by educators, parents, artists, musicians and photographers on our staff.
The collection of Everyone Can Create student guides are a versatile set of learning materials designed by educators, parents, artists, musicians and photographers on staff at Apple. Each guide teaches students the key skills they need to learn with a series of activities, and all those skills build into a really fun project.
The Teacher Guide complements the four student guides and contains an introductory chapter that provides strategies for getting started and how to more deeply integrate creative expression into existing lessons.
All the ideas connect to learning objectives and also come with rubrics to evaluate the quality of work that students create in each medium.
Everyone Can Create also includes a new Teacher Guide for Early Learners, bringing projects and integration ideas across all four mediums into one book, making it easier for teachers of younger students do the activities in small groups or with an entire class.
Instructions are written for the teacher to understand how to complete the activities, and the teacher will then facilitate how those instructions are best delivered within their class setting. Everything a teacher of younger students needs is in this one book, and the activities are age and reading-level appropriate.
Everyone Can Code
At Apple, they see coding as an essential literacy—a way to help students think critically and creatively, and learn better problem-solving techniques.
So they introduced Everyone Can Code, a curriculum that teaches computational thinking and coding with Swift. The curriculum uses Swift Playgrounds, a free iPad app that makes getting started fun and interactive.
With the built-in Learn to Code lessons, you’ll use the Swift programming language — a language Apple created with everyday words so it’s easy to understand — to solve puzzles and start creating things with code. Using the Swift Playgrounds app, students can also write Swift code to make robots dance, drones fly and so much more. These hands-on coding activities with connected devices show students how coding concepts can take shape in the physical world around them.
Apple Teacher is a free online professional learning programme designed to support and celebrate the great work of teachers around the world.
This programme is a great way for leaders in schools and districts to offer professional learning that is easy, flexible, fun and inspiring — just the way professional learning should be.
Thousands of school leaders have already embraced the Apple Teacher programme because they’ve seen the tremendous impact it has on the learning experience. And teachers love going through the programme with their peers.
