Everyone can code.
Swift Playgrounds is the revolutionary new app, designed to teach students essential coding skills they need to use throughout their life in a fun and interactive way.
For beginners and the experienced
Swift Playgrounds can be used for complete beginners and students with more experience. Start out by solving puzzles to master the basics, using real code to guide characters through a 3D world. Once the basics are covered, Swift Playgrounds can be extended into the physical world. With pre-built integrations from companies like Sphero and Parrot, you can even use Swift Playgrounds to code robots and drones.
Enjoy fantastic pre-built resources
To make life easier for teachers, Apple created a Teacher Companion Guide. This guide supports the app’s use in the curriculum, providing you with lesson plans, activities, reflection questions, journal prompts and more.
Learn a new kind of language
Swift is a powerful open language, allowing everyone to build amazing apps. The coding taught by Swift Playgrounds is the same as that used by proffessionals to build real apps every day, meaning the skills learnt in Swift Playgrounds can be used in later, real life careers.
We’re Happy To Help.
If you need a hand getting started with Swift Playgrounds, or are just after some advice, our Apple Education Trainers can help. We offer a range of workshops, tailored specifically to your needs and level.
Apple Deployment Programmes
Easily put devices in the hands of students.
The latest updates and enhancements to Apple’s deployment programmes are making it easier than ever for you to set up and manage iPad in the classroom. Simplify and streamline deployment in both one-to-one and shared environments, so your school can get up and running quicker than ever before.
Apple School Manager
Apple School Manager allows you to enrol devices, create managed Apple IDs for students and staff and buy apps all in one place. Apple IDs are owned by your institution, so you can reset passwords and define roles and student information is kept secure and confidential. ASM works seamlessly with your MDM, so you can automate setup and enrolment, then assign devices according to class groups you have defined.
Classroom is a powerful new iPad app, helping teachers to guide learning, share work and manage student devices. Classroom works in both one-to-one and shared environments. Use Classroom to launch apps, websites and books to the entire class or specific students, using Remote Control. View screens, reset passswords and assign students to a specific iPad. Keep students focussed by locking iPads into apps, books or the lock screen.
Shared iPad provides students with a personalised learning experience, giving teachers and IT leaders a simplified management workflow. Shared iPad is a great solution for sharing iPads when a one-to-one student-to-iPad ratio is not possible. Students simply log into an iPad and find their homework, apps and assignments exactly where they left them, meaning no time is wasted between classes.
We’re Here To Support You.
Here at Albion, we have all the knowledge and know how to help make your deployment even easier. Use our support services for help with set up, configuration and infrastructure. Get in touch to see how we can help >
