In late March Patently Apple posted a report titled "Apple Delivered a Passionate Keynote to Educators Today while introducing a new iPad with Apple Pencil & Specialty Software." At Apple's special education event, Apple's Susan Prescott (shown in our cover graphic) pointed out Apple's new Schoolwork app for teachers. Prescott noted that "We think it's an honor to be able to support teachers with the new generation of apps and services that have been designed just for them. From using Pages to digitally markup student's homework to managing student assignments and viewing progress in the new Schoolwork app."
Today, Apple made the free Schoolwork app available to teachers to make it easier for them to easily create assignments, collaborate one-on-one with students, tap into the power of apps for learning and view and understand student progress. Schoolwork, along with Apple's Classroom app, provides teachers around the world with powerful tools to enhance the learning experience and help both educators and students get more out of the technology they use in the classroom everyday.
The all-new Schoolwork app empowers teachers to take full advantage of the power and creativity of iPad to create new learning experiences for their students. Schoolwork makes it easy to create and send announcements and assignments with almost any type of content, from web links to PDFs and documents, and even specific activities in apps.
Students can use Schoolwork to stay organized and keep track of the work they need to complete and when they need to hand it in. For more on this, read the full press release here.
