Index - EdTech In the Classroom
Education Technology in the classroom is very popular. Although EdTech was already on its way into our lives, COVID-19 and the need for remote learning made EdTech a growing market. This is the reason that we have seen such a growth of online course providers, such as Udemy, Skillshare and Articulate.

Even big companies, such as Apple, Google, Adobe and Microsoft are incorporating their products into the education market. Along with education pricing for schools, they also have areas on their websites dedicated to education. For example, these big companies have created learning or teacher centers, which have resources for teachers who wish to bring technology to their students. They have also designed apps specifically for teachers in the classroom. With these apps, such as the Apple Classroom app, teachers can manage their students and their student's apps. It's an easy way to give assignments, review progress and grade final work.

As I am a long time Apple Mac user, most of my articles below feature the Mac, iPad and their educational apps. My subject is Digital Art and Design, so I concentrate on classroom content that relies more on graphics than text. That's why I have a large section about Apple's curriculum and the Apple Teacher Program and Learning Center, as it uses visuals to enhance learning. For example, the Swift Playgrounds app uses 3D characters that resemble game characters. The students control these characters with code. It's a fun and easy way to teach the concepts of coding.

Below you will also find links to articles about Scratch, which is a block-based visual programming language created by MIT.
