As teachers, it can be difficult to adapt to using technology in the classroom. With resources from BT and Apple, you’ll have all the training and support you need to feel confident using tech to enhance your lessons. Gain the inspiration you need to inspire your pupils and improve teaching and learning with one of our training offerings, delivered by a BT Apple Expert or an Apple Professional Learning Specialist.

Everyone Can Create

Apple designed the Everyone Can Create programme to help inject creativity to learning practices in more meaningful ways. It includes a collection of free project guides that introduce students to skills they can use to express themselves freely through a creative suite of video, drawing, music and photography on iPad. Through our network of Apple Professional Learning Specialists, BT can help you get up to speed with using the Everyone Can Create resources alongisde the curriculum.

Video

Video is becoming the norm in children's lives, so why not incorporate it into the curriculum? Using iPad cameras, Clips and iMovie, students can act out their first movie scene, film it, add effects, music and more. They can learn about camera angles, lighting and other techniques whilst creating documentaries and short films.

Drawing

Drawing encourages students to look at things more closely. Examining detail helps learners consider how things work and are built. Drawing lets students express themselves in ways they may not be able to with words, freeing their imagination and mind. Students can practice handwriting, shading, shapes, portraits and more with Apple pencil and drawing on iPad.

Music

Music can be an escape for some pupils. Building a song or melody isn't easy, that's why with iPad you can build blocks of verses, chorus and bridges from songs you already know. Using apps like GarageBand, students will learn how to build beats, arrange tracks and record their own vocals. Students can layer a soundtrack onto a short film they've just made or produce their own pop songs. Whatever they do, you'll be impressed.

Photography

Using the camera and photos app, pupils can explore beyond their usual reach with projects on nature, weather and more. They can experiment with light and shadow, explore composition and learn various photography techniques to capture scenes, portraits and collages. So why not send your class to the school field to see what they can find?

Apple applications for the classroom

Apple Classroom

With Classroom, you can easily launch the same app on every student's iPad at the same time, or launch a different app for each group of students. Classroom helps teachers focus on teaching, so students can focus on learning. You can lock students’ screens, mute all iPads and guide students to the right page or document from the front of the class. Create personalised groups depending on the level they’re working at and tailor each lesson's task to each group’s ability. AirDrop files to your screens so the whole class can see and provide peer to peer feedback. Anything is possible when using Classroom in the classroom.

Apple Schoolwork

Schoolwork is an iPad app created to help teachers both save time and maximise each student’s potential. With Schoolwork, it’s easy to share class materials, collaborate, get students involved in a specific app and view their individual progress. We know that the best way for students to learn is to do.  Schoolwork makes this easy. You can easily distribute work and collate feedback, as well as work in real time with students and organise homework. As a teacher, you can keep track of each individual student’s progress and tailor your assignments and homework to suit their needs. Use Handouts in Schoolwork to send web links, PDFs, documents and photos. You can use Handouts for communicating announcements or newsletters which pupils can see throughout their day on their iPad.
