Watch: 3 ways Apple says it can boost remote learning during lockdown
Apple has published the first two of three videos it hopes will help educators get to grips with the challenges and opportunities of remote learning, as social distancing hits.
Bringing lessons to life
“We’re all in this together and we’ll all help, the videos explain.
What’s useful about these is that they are aimed at people across a wide range of tech experience, so a teacher struggling to deliver good online education hs s good a chance of picking up useful hints as anybody else using these clips.
The series is presented by the Apple Education Leadership and Learning teams.
Each one is designed to help educators use features built inside Apple products to enable remote learning for all students.
The following two video clips are currently available.
A third (Create engaging videos with Clips) is scheduled for release later on.
Prepare Resources for Remote learning
This video will help educators learn how to get up and running for remote learning with iPad. We’ll explore ways to access school resources and find apps that support remote learning. Tips will include using iPad built-in features to scan documents and stay organized, using Markup to annotate teacher materials and student work, getting set up with Voice Memos, and more.
Create and share presentations and demos
Presenting information in compelling ways is even more important when you’re not able to be face-to-face with your students. In this video we’ll show you how to use iPad built-in features to create demos and instructional videos and share them with your colleagues and students. Using Keynote, or any presentation tool, you’ll learn how to record content and create demos on iPad for use with your students.
As a follow-up to the series, educators can also participate in virtual conferences led by Apple Professional Learning Specialists.
Visit the virtual conferences schedule to find events in your time zone. Each virtual conference will run for approximately 30 minutes and will provide an opportunity for educators to engage in dialogue with our teams about the content provided in each video.
