Back in March, Apple announced their free “Everyone Can Create” curriculum for students and educators in beta, but now it has officially launched for everyone, now available in Canada and beyond. The announcement was made alongside the new 9.7-inch iPad with Apple Pencil support.
The purpose of Everyone Can Create is to teach students how to “develop and communicate ideas through drawing, music, video and photos on iPad.”
“We believe Apple technology can help unleash every child’s creative genius,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, in a press release. “Working closely with teachers, we have built the Everyone Can Create curriculum to help bring creative expression and the arts into the classroom, and to help students stay engaged through creativity and ultimately be more successful.”
Apple says since launching their preview of Everyone Can Create in the spring, over 350 schools worldwide have started using the new curriculum.
Anthony Stirpe, teacher of English and Language Arts at New Rochelle High School in New York, said “The best thing about Everyone Can Create is that any teacher can piggyback on experts and insert creativity into their existing lessons.”
Everyone Can Create lessons are available for free in Apple Books, with dedicated project guides on Drawing, Video, Photo, Photography, and Music, to go with a new Teacher Guide filled with 300 lesson ideas across all subjects.
