Apple’s cheaper iPad improves the classroom experience

It’s called the Everyone Can Create initiative

Published

on

Students today can scarcely remember a time when the iPad was just a toy, not a tool in the classroom. Especially with Apple’s newly announced initiatives, it looks like the iPad’s days as a gimmick device are finally over.

Announcing a cheaper iPad and a creative suite of apps, Apple is keeping their tablet optimized for the classroom.

Formally known as Everyone Can Create, the new curriculum integrates creative subjects like illustration and music into the classroom. It also joins the Everyone Can Code initiative, a similar plan that teaches students how to write code.

The Everyone Can Create curriculum is built specifically for Apple’s new iPad. The new beast carries a large Retina display, an A10 Fusion chip, Pencil compatibility, and a cheaper US$ 468 price tag. It also comes with the standard suite of creation apps — Pages, Numbers, Keynote, GarageBand, Clips, and iMovie.

More importantly, the initiative uses teaching guides and resources to combines the iPad’s creative power with the lessons of the classroom. For example, it teaches users how to sketch fractals and equations with the Pencil and the camera.

It will also come with a new app (available on the cheaper iPad variant) called Schoolwork. Schoolwork simplifies the entire classroom ecosystem into an easy-to-use app. Teachers can create worksheets and assign them to students with just a swish and a click. They can also monitor a student’s progress using the app. Finally, Schoolwork already integrates with a number of educational apps like Nearpod and Tynker.

The new iPads are also compatible with the Classroom app, an assistant program that allows teachers to manage their students’ iPads during class time. With it, teachers can pull up slides, textbooks, and worksheets while having class.

As if that wasn’t enough, compatible devices will receive 200GB of free iCloud storage for their projects and files. Also, Apple has updated the Pencil for use on the iWork suite of apps (Pages, Numbers, and Keynote).

Apple will start teaching the Everyone Can Create curriculum during their regular Today at Apple sessions in 501 stores across 21 countries in spring.

Logitech Crayon and Rugged Combo 2 suit the new iPad for classrooms

An iPad stylus cheaper than the Apple Pencil and a tough case

Published

Along with the new, cheaper iPad is a couple of official accessories from Logitech. Both accessories are designed for school, which is also mainly what the new iPad is for.

First up is the Logitech Crayon — the first third-party stylus for the iPad that has roughly the same features as the Apple Pencil. This means that the Crayon (what a nice name to call a stylus made for students) will work just as well as the Pencil. It has a rugged design which should be able to withstand heavy usage by kids in classrooms. It also has an 8-hour battery life that is practically a full day of use and charges via Lightning port.

Another great feat of the Crayon is its price: just US$ 50. You essentially get the same features of the Pencil (except for pressure sensitivity) for half the price.

On the other hand, the Logitech Rugged Combo 2 is a case designed to keep the iPad protected from bumps, scratches, and drops up to 4 feet high. It basically makes your tablet tough at the cost of thickness and weight. It has a built-in kickstand that can position the tablet at various angles and a holder for a stylus.

The case comes with a detachable keyboard with pry-resistant keys and attaches via a proprietary connection to the case. It features shortcut buttons for volume, brightness, media playback, camera, dictation, Spotlight, Home, and Power. It’s also spill-resistant and silent to type on.

The Rugged Combo 2 is priced at US$ 100.

Both Logitech accessories will be available for purchase by schools in the US this summer. Unfortunately, these accessories are specifically designed to sell to the education market and will not be available in retail stores — for now.
