This event is designed for teachers and/or those in education ONLY.
The workshop will be focused around use of Swift Playgrounds...
Swift Playgrounds is a free iPad app from Apple that makes learning and experimenting with code interactive and fun. Students can solve puzzles to master the basics using Swift — a powerful programming language created by Apple and used by the pros to build many of today’s most popular apps. The app comes with a complete set of Apple-designed lessons called Learn to Code. Using real Swift code, students solve puzzles and meet characters they can control with just a tap. By exploring and solving rich puzzle worlds, students develop coding skills that become the foundation of their programming knowledge. Additional challenges and connected device playgrounds are also included that let students apply what they’ve learned to new contexts.
Technology has a language. It’s called code. And Apple believe coding is an essential skill. Learning to code teaches you how to solve problems and work together in creative ways. And it helps you build apps that bring your ideas to life. Apple think everyone should have the opportunity to create something that can change the world; they have designed a new programme with the tools and resources that let anyone learn, write and teach it.
