Apple has launched its second US-wide cohort of Apple Learning Coach, a free professional learning program to help educators coach teachers on how to get the most out of Apple products.
The program, available to instructional coaches, digital learning specialists, and other coaching educators across the US, is now accepting applications through November 16, 2022. Through a mix of self-paced lessons and virtual workshop sessions with Apple Professional Learning Specialists, participants come away from the experience with a coaching portfolio, a cohort of peers, and the opportunity to apply for continuing education credits from Lamar University, according to Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Education and Enterprise Marketing.
The largest cohort to date was certified in July, and there are now more than 1,600 Apple Learning Coaches across 49 states, plus Washington, D.C.
Along with the new Apple Learning Coach cohort, Apple continues to add other resources for teachers.
The Apple Education Community is now live and growing with valuable content from educators around the world. The Community is a professional learning hub designed for educators who use Apple technology, and includes the Learning Center with self-paced professional learning and the Forum, a collaborative space where educators can connect and share with one another.
Within the Apple Education Community, Apple released Everyone Can Create Projects, a new online series of simple, timesaving tutorials and downloadable resources to inspire new ideas and bring creativity to any subject. Everyone Can Create is designed to empower educators to build their creative teaching skills and deliver engaging learning experiences on iPad.
