The Apple Teacher Programme is a free programme that you can use to develop your skills. You can gain ideas on how to utilise Apple products and apps in your teaching. You can also take part in #AppleEDUchat every week to learn, share and connect with a wider community of educators. As a member of the Apple Teacher Programme, you gain access to a range of resources:
Access to the Apple Teacher Learning Centre
Here, you will find great resources to help you use Apple products and apps with your students. You can build up your skills, as well as test your knowledge and earn badges!
- How you can use the Clips app with your students to create video based assessment and activities
- If you don’t think you can code or write computer programs, you could try Swift Playgrounds, a visual approach to coding!
Apple Teacher Recognition
You can take quizzes to earn your badges. To gain Apple Teacher status, earn all six badges for either Mac or iPad and then receive your official logo to share with colleagues.
- Learn skills like recording and editing video on your iPad or how you can use accessibility tools such as voice dictation instead of typing!
