Ap­ple re­cently held an ed­u­ca­tion fo­cused event at Lane Tech Col­lege Prep high school, Chicago, at which the firm in­tro­duced a new iPad, and made some ed­u­ca­tion fo­cused soft­ware an­nounce­ments.

Tim Cook took to the stage to dis­cuss Ap­ple’s fo­cus on ed­u­ca­tion, say­ing: “At Ap­ple we care deeply about ed­u­ca­tion be­cause we love kids and we love teach­ers”.

He said ed­u­ca­tion has been a big part of who Ap­ple is for 40 years. “We had a unique in­sight into how tech­nol­ogy could in­spire kids to un­leash their cre­ative ge­nius. And we be­lieved that tech­nol­ogy could help teach­ers de­liver a unique and per­son­al­ized learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence to all kids. We’ve never stopped be­lieve this, and we’ve never stopped work­ing on it.”

Cook added: “We know our prod­ucts can help bring out the cre­ative ge­nius in ev­ery kid”.

In fact, ”Macs and iPads are used through­out schools by stu­dents for ev­ery­thing from music to lan­guage arts and even ad­vanced robotics”.

He dis­cussed some of the ed­u­ca­tion projects Ap­ple has been in­volved with. Such as a 10-year study called ‘Ap­ple Class­rooms of To­mor­row’ of which he said: “en­gage­ment in­creased ex­po­nen­tially for stu­dents and teach­ers who had ac­cess to our prod­ucts.”

There are also classes for stu­dents and teach­ers at the Ap­ple re­tail stores, in­clud­ing the Ev­ery­one Can Code ini­tia­tive with Swift Play­grounds that makes it easy to teach cod­ing.

“To­day we’re go­ing to take those ex­pe­ri­ences even fur­ther and to start it off we’re go­ing to talk about iPad”, said Cook as Ap­ple’s vice pres­i­dent of world­wide iPod, iPhone, and iOS prod­uct mar­ket­ing, Greg Joswiak ar­rived on stage.
