Apple and education have been going hand-in-hand for a while and a few months ago, at the education-focused event, Apple introduced the Schoolwork app and now Apple has released it as a free download.

With the free Schoolwork app, teachers can create assignments, collaborate one-on-one with students, tap into the apps for learning and view and understand student progress. Schoolwork, along with Apple’s Classroom app, provides teachers with tools to enhance the learning experience and help both educators and students get more out of the technology they already use in the classroom every day.

 

The Schoolwork app enables teachers to take advantage of the iPad to create new learning experiences for their students. The app makes it possible 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.

Teachers can use Schoolwork to assign a specific activity right within an app to guide their students directly to a challenge or lesson. Popular education apps including Explain Everything, Tynker, GeoGebra and Kahoot! work directly with Schoolwork to bring educational content and tools to teachers using iPad.

 

Schoolwork and the apps supporting it give teachers insight into how their students are performing, helping them tailor their teaching to the needs and potential of each student. Teachers have a snapshot of class performance and can check on an individual student’s progress across activities — progress within apps or projects they’ve created. Privacy and security features are built in so schools get to create, own and control the accounts used by their students and decide when student progress information is shared.

Schoolwork works alongside the Classroom app, which turns iPad — and now Mac — into a teaching assistant, putting teachers in charge of the technology used in the classroom. Classroom on iPad helps teachers keep students focused on a specific app or website and lets them view student screens during class, share documents with students, assign shared iPads and even reset a student’s password.
