When you teach coding, you’re also teaching logic, creativity and problem solving – skills all students need for the future. The Everyone Can Code curriculum from Apple introduces students to the world of coding through interactive puzzles, playful characters and activities can be completed both inside and outside the classroom. With the fun Swift Playgrounds app, alongside helpful guides, students can dive into immersive coding puzzles that strengthen their critical-thinking skills. And from the start, they’ll learn to code in Swift – the same programming language used by professionals to build powerful apps.
Swift Playgrounds is an incredible iPad app, that guides students through their first coding experience, and supports them through progression and development.
The Swift Playgrounds app forms the core of the Everyone Can Code curriculum for Primary and Secondary schools. Whether you’re looking to introduce coding, or provide routes to progression, Swift Playgrounds can support you and your students in taking the next step.
In addition to the built-in library of lessons, Swift Playgrounds includes a collection of extra challenges — with new ones added over time. You’re not just building fun creations, you’re building your skills too.
You can also watch your code spring to life by programming real robots and drones. Third-party developers of popular robots and devices offer subscriptions filled with engaging playgrounds that let you configure and control popular educational toys like LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3. And that’s just the beginning.
Swift Playgrounds empowers students to get started with Swift, allowing them to progress to app development with Swift in the Xcode development environment.
Apple have created a range of Develop in Swift guides, that are flexible enough to help you support students brand new to coding and those with advanced skills. The lessons provide practical experience in developing apps with Swift in Xcode, the integrated development environment that professional developers use to build real apps.
