Apps that help you put the power of technology to work. In and out of class.

We’ve developed tools to help you guide how your students use devices and apps in the classroom, and give you valuable insight into each student’s progress as they work with them. So you can focus on what’s most important: teaching.


A home base for you and your students.

The best way to learn is by doing and making. The Schoolwork app helps you and your students more effectively use the creative power of iPad. You can easily distribute and collect assignments, keep an eye on student's progress in educational apps, collaborate one on one with students from anywhere, in real time and quickly survey student learning through the new Exit Tickets. It’s easy for students to learn, too. Assignments automatically appear on their iPad, organised by due date and class. And Schoolwork helps you keep track of how everyone in class is doing — so you can tailor your teaching to the needs of each of your students.

Easily send out anything from announcements to assignments with Schoolwork.

Assignments are easy to create and send as an email, and flexible enough to contain almost anything: web links, PDFs, documents and even links to activities in apps. You can use them for announcements, reminders or assignments. And your students can view assignments across all their classes to keep track of everything they need to complete.

Quickly survey student learning with exit tickets.

Exit tickets are short, formative assessments that are easy to create and send to students during or after class. Teachers can quickly gauge student comprehension, reactions and engagement with a lesson, enabling teachers to tailor the material to each student’s needs.

Tap into the power of educational apps.

Some of the most useful educational materials are found within apps. But students, especially younger ones, often have a hard time finding those materials. Schoolwork makes it as easy as possible to direct students to the right place in the right app. First, you can browse popular apps like Tynker, GeoGebra 3D Calculator and Kahoot! To find content that fits your curriculum. Then you can select a specific app activity to share with students on an assignment. When students get the assignment with the activity you’ve chosen, they can go right to the activity with a single tap. It’s all made possible by the developer framework called ClassKit. Many of the top educational apps are using ClassKit, with even more on the way.

Know how every student is doing at a glance.

Schoolwork and the apps built to support it provide insight that’s never been possible before. When your school enables the student progress feature, you’ll get a snapshot of each student’s overall class performance, be able to check on students’ app activities and see how far they’ve gotten on assignments. It allows you to tailor your teaching to each of your students — whether they need an extra challenge or extra help. And because Apple cares deeply about privacy, this information is just between you and your students. We don’t look at it or use the information. Ever.

Work in real time together, even when you’re not together.

When you use Pages, Numbers or Keynote in Schoolwork, it takes just a few taps to collaborate with your students on their assignments and add written or verbal feedback directly to their documents — at any time, from anywhere. You can even use Apple Pencil on iPad to mark up Pages documents as easily as you do on paper.

Once IT gets you set up, you’re all set.

Get started right in Schoolwork by creating Managed Apple IDs, which will be approved by IT through Apple School Manager. They’ll take care of keeping your class lists up to date as students move in and out of your class. If enabled by your IT department in Apple School Manager, you can also create and manage your own classes.

Keep your class fun and engaged. And focused.

The Classroom app turns your iPad and Mac into a powerful teaching assistant. It puts you in the driver’s seat of every iPad and Mac for instruction in the classroom and remotely, so you can guide students through lessons and keep them focused on the task at hand. Classroom also makes it easy to share information — send and receive files with the entire class and individual students using AirDrop, or show student work on the big screen.

Make sure everyone is on task. And on the right screen.

View any student’s screen on your iPad or Mac. Classroom allows you to see every student’s screen at the same time and navigate individual students or the entire class to a web page, book or app. You can also lock students into a single iPad app or mute audio on student devices, so students stay focused.

Make every minute count. Design smart lesson plans with built‑in timers.

Create agendas in Classroom to follow your daily schedule. Assign one or more actions in an agenda task and the amount of time you want to spend on it. The built-in timer will notify you when it’s time to move students onto the next task. You can also view and edit agendas in real time while using Classroom to help keep your class running smoothly.

Support learning at any distance. Connect remotely with your students.

Whether you’re in the classroom together with your students, learning from home or a combination of both, Classroom will work at any distance. For your students, connecting to Classroom is as easy as answering a phone call. When connected, navigate your students to specific apps, view their screens and see a summary of their engagement at the end of class.

Even if students share an iPad, they can make it their own.

Shared iPad is a feature for schools that share devices and still want to provide personalised experiences. Before class begins, you can assign any iPad to any student in your classroom. Students know which devices to use because their pictures are on the Lock screens. And they can access their personal content with a password or an easy-to-remember four-digit PIN. After students log in, their homework, apps and assignments appear exactly as they left them.

Privacy is built into everything we make.

Teachers see all of the wonderful things created by their students. We don’t. All Apple products are built with an integrated approach to privacy and security — providing schools with devices, apps and services that keep student work and personal information secure. And with Managed Apple IDs, the school controls student information and can choose to enable or disable apps, and services such as iMessage, FaceTime or student progress reporting with the Schoolwork app.

Apple maintains certifications in compliance with the ISO standards over key in-scope systems supporting Apple’s Education offerings. We also meet the requirements of the EU GDPR framework. In addition, Apple has signed the Student Privacy Pledge, further underscoring our commitment to protecting the information of students, parents and teachers shared in our schools.
