Apple this morning announced its “Everyone Can Create” educational module, a free curriculum available to teachers looking to build artistic endeavors into their classes.
According to the Cupertino company’s press release, the curriculum functions alongside the existing “Everyone Can Code” initiative, and is a program designed to help educators “integrate drawing, music, filmmaking or photography into their existing lesson plans for any subject.”
“The new curriculum joins Apple’s successful “Everyone Can Code” initiative as one-of-a-kind programs for teachers that keep students excited and engaged,” reads the press release.
Basically, the module will aid teachers in embedding art and design lessons, such as drawing and composition, into other courses about subjects such as history or sciences.
“Developed in collaboration with educators and creative professionals, Everyone Can Create includes teacher and student guides, lessons, ideas and examples to help teachers bring creativity and new communication skills into their existing subjects like English, math, science and history,” continues the press release. “For example, students can use the built-in camera in iPad to learn about fractals or they can use Apple Pencil and apps like Tayasui Sketches to learn about symmetry.”
A preview of the “Everyone Can Create” plan is already available, and will launch for classrooms in the fall. Later this spring, Apple Stores will begin teaching “Everyone Can Create” as part of their regular Today at Apple sessions for educators.
