Technology has a language. It’s called code. And at Apple, we believe coding is an essential skill that everyone should have the opportunity to learn. Learning to code teaches you how to solve problems and work together in creative ways. And it helps you build apps that bring your ideas to life. We think everyone should have the opportunity to create something that can change the world. We’ve designed a new program that lets anyone learn, write and teach it.
Join us in this session and we’ll help you learn how to bring coding into your classroom with Swift™ Playgrounds and iPad. We’ll give you all the resources you need, and some hands-on experience with Swift Playgrounds.
In this workshop you will:
Who should attend: Teachers, teacher leaders, building level specialists, consultants
