Learning that leads to a-ha moments.

When Apple technology is deeply integrated into learning, students can find new ways to work together, to communicate and create, and to develop personalized paths for understanding and applying their knowledge to the world around them.

Apple Professional Learning resources are designed to support and enhance your instructional practice. And by learning how to make the most of iPad, Mac and a wide variety of apps and materials, you can design and deliver lessons that create more a-ha moments for every student.

Teaching that gets to innovation.

We’ve developed learning materials and content to support teachers at every point in their journey with technology. Get started with the Apple Teacher program, where you can learn the fundamentals of iPad and Mac, and how to integrate built-in apps to daily activities. To support new literacies and provide more ways to develop students’ critical-thinking and problem-solving skills, you can bring coding into your curriculum with Swift Playgrounds. And as you continue to explore deeper learning opportunities, our Apple Professional Learning Specialists will work with you side-by-side to innovate your learning and teaching practices.

Apple foundations.

Apple Teacher is a free, online program that will help build the foundational skills you need to unlock the magic of iPad and Mac. Apple Teacher offers self-paced learning resources with step-by-step instructions to help you build skills using Apple products effectively for learning. Then test your new knowledge with interactive quizzes to earn the official Apple Teacher logo.

Everyday integration.

Apple Teacher also provides creativity and productivity workflows and content to spark new ideas for integrating Apple products and apps into the work you and your students do every day.

And, you can go further by discovering how to integrate coding into lessons across almost any subject. With the teaching and learning materials from the Everyone Can Code curriculum, everyone has the power to learn, write, and teach code. These resources will help you introduce a new literacy, map the curriculum to standards, and deliver lessons with ease.
