For more than four decades, Apple has worked alongside educators to help enable students to create, problem-solve, and express themselves in new ways. We designed Apple Learning Coach to support educators using technology in the classroom. Apple Learning Coach is already making a real impact with educators and their students, helping to build a strong foundation for lifelong creativity and learning.

In addition, the Apple Education Community, built for educators employing Apple technology, and offering Learning Center and a collaborative Forum for educators to connect with each other, is also now available. Everyone Can Create Projects is a new, online series of tutorials and downloadable resources, within the Apple Education Community, developed to help educators enhance their teaching skills.

Educators can find various features within the Everyone Can Create Projects including Design with Shapes in Keynote, Animate with Stop Motion in Photos and Keynote, Create Editing Effects with iMovie, and Write Your First Song with GarageBand, which is also now offering Katy Perry and SEVENTEEN Remix Sessions on iPhone and iPad.
