Millions of teachers around the world choose iPad as the best tool to help personalise learning and inspire creativity. Now with the free Schoolwork app, available today, teachers can easily create assignments, collaborate one-on-one with students, tap into the power of apps for learning and view and understand student progress. Schoolwork, along with Apple’s Classroom app, provides teachers around the world with powerful tools to enhance the learning experience and help both educators and students get more out of the technology they use in the classroom everyday. 

Teachers can use Schoolwork to guide students directly to assignments within leading learning apps, Apple said.

The tech giant's new Schoolwork app empowers teachers to take full advantage of the power and creativity of iPad to create new learning experiences for their students. According to the tech giant, Schoolwork makes it easy to create and send announcements and assignments with almost any type of content, from web links to PDFs and documents, and even specific activities in apps. Likewise, students can also use Schoolwork to stay organised and keep track of the work they need to complete and when they need to hand it in, the company noted.

The iPhone maker claims, Schoolwork works alongside the Classroom app, turns iPad and now Mac into a versatile teaching assistant, putting teachers in charge of the technology used in the classroom. Classroom on iPad helps teachers keep students focused on a specific app or website and lets them view student screens during class, share documents with students, assign shared iPads and even reset a student’s password, Apple noted in its blog.
