After the success of Apple’s Everyone Can Code program, with over 5,000 schools, technical and community colleges worldwide using it, Apple has released their Everyone Can Create program that was made to bring out the creativity in kids and teenagers during the school day.
There are four major project guides that teachers and students have access to in Apple Books: Drawing, Music, Videos and Photos. This was developed with the help from educators and creative professionals for students to express themselves during class and also help the teachers bring the same amount of creativity to their lessons and lectures.
Everyone Can Create provides technology tools insights to the teachers that are fun and meaningful, and the skills students will be able to learn from the program, will be teaching them more than basic knowledge and skills to apply to school, but also real life situations that they can carry on with them, as they continue their education or their work. These programs help the teachers create a more interactive environment while keeping students excited and engaged throughout the class period.
With a guide made for new teachers and over 300 ideas for lessons, projects and subjects, they can help the students with their projects in the classroom. Being able to add in more creativity for subjects like Math, English, Science, History and Language, Arts, and more - bringing their work to life.
Everyone Can Create allows students to develop ideas through drawing, making music, and the use of photos and videos to communicate to other students and even the teachers.
There are tools that can be used to not only help the students, but certain ones that can make the process smoother and easier for teachers. As the IT Administrator, your job has many duties, but one of the most important ones is to make sure the technology foundations are working great, such as the wifi and network connection, allowing the iPads to operate efficiently for both teachers and students.
They also need to be able to take the books or apps that the teacher has requested, and apply them to the iPad’s in the teachers classes. To do this, within Mosyle's Class Manager, there is a feature which allows the teacher to search for educational Apps and Books within the App Store and Book store as well, requesting which one they would like to integrate to lessons. Using Mosyle Manager MDM, the IT administrator can easily install the apps and books requested by the teachers in bulk.
Professional Development meetings are also a great way to keep teachers and staff up to date on current events in regards to education technology. Having one of these meetings to introduce or further explain the Everyone Can Create curriculum, would save time by allowing you, as the IT Administrator to answer any questions, and explain how it will help their students and the overall school or district as a whole. This will save time across the board.
This program is in English everywhere that Apple Books is available and more languages will be coming by the end of the year. For more details and information on this amazing program, visit Apple's website.
