The Apple Education Learning Series is now available to support schools and educators with remote learning resources. This series is presented by the Apple Education Leadership and Learning teams. Each video is designed to help educators use the built-in features of their Apple products to enable remote learning for all students.
As a follow-up to the series, educators can also participate in virtual conferences led by our Apple Professional Learning Specialists. Each virtual conference will run for approximately 30 minutes and will provide an opportunity for educators to engage in dialogue with our team about the content provided in each video. Virtual conferences are available in English only.

Presenting information in compelling ways is even more important when you’re not able to be face-to-face with your students.

It’s easy to turn traditional worksheets into fun and creative learning assignments. In this session you’ll learn how to take a built-in template in Pages for Mac and quickly customize it with placeholders for text, photos, and even a personalized video from you to guide your students. You’ll see how to share this new assignment as a template which lets students easily customize it with their own content.
Connect and Collaborate Remotely
