Apple Teacher is a free professional learning program designed to support and celebrate educators using Apple products for teaching and learning. As an Educator you can build skills on iPad and Mac that directly apply to activities with your students, earn recognition for the new things you learn, and be rewarded for the great work you do every day.
When you sign up for Apple Teacher, you’ll start a self‑paced journey through the Apple Teacher Learning Center and Multi-Touch starter guides for iPad and Mac.
The program is open to all educators and is a great way for schools and districts to offer free professional learning that their staff can work through together. Whether you’re new to Apple products or have been using them for years, whether you have a single device or one for every student — Apple Teacher has the tools you need to use iPad and Mac to connect with all learners.
To register for Apple Teacher, all you need is an Apple ID and an iPad or Mac. The program provides you with resources to help you learn how to use the technologies better in your classes, and rewards you with badges that recognise what you’ve learned.
You can earn Apple Teacher badges for the use of iPad and Mac in education, and there’s a special stream of learning for Swift Playgrounds for those on iPad looking at how to teach coding with Apple’s Swift programming language.
