At the much-awaited “Field Trip education event,” Apple has made its intention crystal clear that it’s going to focus on education more than ever before. The tech giant has announced an enormously helpful app called Schoolwork. There are many ways “Apple Schoolwork for iPad” will revolutionize the way teachers teach students.
The tool will let teachers assign digital handouts to students and also keep a track of their progress. For instance, teachers can write notes, send PDFs and also links to the web. They can also assign students activities that are related with other apps. More after the break:
Apple Schoolwork App for iPad
One of the main features of the app is the ability to provide complete privacy to students’ data. Only teachers can view the data and track students’ progress with the desired discretion.
Considering how significant privacy is, Apple’s tool has the edge over other similar tools provided by its rivals. And this is what puts this app a step ahead of others.
Apple has introduced a new toolset named ClassKit that will allow apps to work with Schoolwork. Developers will use the tool to create links to various parts of their app so that they can be assigned via the Schoolwork. Head over to this post to know more about Apple ClassKit.
To Launch in June-2018
Schoolwork is all set to launch in June. It has given a bit of time to teachers to find out how they can make the best use of the app before the starting of the next school year!
200GB Free iCloud Storage
To let young learners use iPad with the desired freedom, the company has offered 200GB free iCloud storage. To me, it’s going to prove a masterstroke as students will no longer be restricted to store their data.
The students whose Apple IDs are managed by a school will have access to 200GB of storage space for storing assignments, resources, and other documents in the cloud.
The new storage space is fully integrated with ClassKit and the Classwork app, which stores assignments in the cloud so students and teachers can access them from across the devices. Regular students and standard users of Apple devices will be restricted to only 5GB of free storage space.
More Focus on Education
The existing iOS “Classroom” app is also going to be available on Mac, starting with a beta this June. It has announced “Apple Teacher” professional learning program, which will help teachers build skills, chart their progress and also launch new lesson plans.
