Apple announces Everyone Can Create initiative for education

Apple has announced a new curriculum for Apple Books. Joining the successful Everyone Can Code initiative, Everyone Can Create teaches students to develop and communicate ideas through drawing, music, video, and photos on iPad. 

Offering free project guides to teachers, Everyone Can Create was developed in collaboration with educators and creative professionals to help kids express themselves. Among the titles available at launch are:

Each guide offers a series of projects that build skills progressively, thereby helping students gain foundational to advanced vocabulary and techniques in each medium. The supplemental teacher guide helps bring the projects to life with 300 lesson ideas across media, projects, and, subjects.

Apple explains, for example, a math teacher can guide students to use the iPad camera and burst mode to capture the arc of a basketball being tossed through a hoop and measure its parabola.

Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, explains:

We believe Apple technology can help unleash every child’s creative genius. Working closely with teachers, we have built the Everyone Can Create curriculum to help bring creative expression and the arts into the classroom, and to help students stay engaged through creativity and ultimately be more successful.
First introduced in 2016, Apple’s Everyone Can Code initiative help students learn coding to create opportunities and prepare them for the workforce. More than 5,000 schools, community colleges, and technical colleges are now using Everyone Can Code curriculum worldwide.
Everyone Can Create sounds like another worthwhile program, don’t you think?
