    "Of course, Schoolwork will let you point students to an app. That's great, but that's not enough. What's really cool is making it easy for you to assign students a specific activity in an app"
  • Scott Stein 3/27/2018 3:39:09 PM
    Can jump right into app specific activities, link into it via Schoolwork app.
  • Shara Tibken 3/27/2018 3:39:14 PM
    "Now as assigning an activity in an app is as easy as assigning a worksheet." And just as easy to check on their progress
  • Shara Tibken 3/27/2018 3:39:28 PM
    "You can see how an individual student is doing"

    Can see a detailed view of all students' work
  • Scott Stein 3/27/2018 3:39:45 PM
    These app links are pretty interesting. Makes it easier to curate a set of apps to use as part of a curriculum.

    "We think it will allow teachers to be able to tailor to the needs and potential of their students"

  • Shara Tibken 3/27/2018 3:40:22 PM
    "While teachers see each students' progress information, we don't and neither can anybody else."
  • Shara Tibken 3/27/2018 3:40:37 PM
    "Privacy is integral to everything we do at Apple ... It's something we are very passionate about."
  • Scott Stein 3/27/2018 3:40:41 PM
    Promised privacy: Apple can’t see student information.

    So, that’s Apple’s big answer to Chrome and its software ecosystem

    "You can show progress by earning badges, you can be inspired by what's happening in your classroom or seeing what other teachers are doing."
  • James Martin 3/27/2018 3:42:10 PM
  • Shara Tibken 3/27/2018 3:42:12 PM
    "As an example, teachers love our starter guides, which help them get hands-on with new content ..."

  • James Martin 3/27/2018 3:42:41 PM
  • Scott Stein 3/27/2018 3:42:46 PM
    Apple involving Clips as part of teacher learning program. Clips seems to be the Official Video Tool for Apple.

  • James Martin 3/27/2018 3:43:23 PM
  • Shara Tibken 3/27/2018 3:43:29 PM
    Wow, we've seen more women today on stage than men
  • James Martin 3/27/2018 3:43:44 PM

    "Professional learning plays such an important role. ... Apple Teacher has been such a gift to the Dunham School Community."

  • Shara Tibken 3/27/2018 3:45:45 PM
    While we've seen more women on stage than any other Apple event, it would be great to see this many at an iPhone announcement, not just an education event with tons of female teachers (though a shout-out to all the teachers out there, including my mom!)
  • Shara Tibken 3/27/2018 3:45:52 PM
