Apple Revamp Its 'Everyone Can Code' Curriculum Promoting It To More Schools

Apple announced that it has comprehensively redesigned its "Everyone Can Code" curriculum to promote it to more elementary and middle school students around the world. To celebrate Computer Science Education Week, thousands of free coding courses will be added to the Apple Stores in December.


The new curriculum includes extra teacher resources, brand-new student guides, and is designed to make coding easier to get started by providing activities that are more relevant to students' daily lives. It also includes a new Swift Playgrounds guide called Everyone Can Code Puzzles, which comes with a teacher companion that includes solutions, assessment strategies, accessibility resources, and more.

In another branch, Apple blended its "Everyone Can Crea" project guide into the new curriculum. Teachers can integrate painting, music, film production and photography into their classrooms in Apple's technical way.

Free interactive sessions are designed to inspire young coders to use robots for block-based coding, while more experienced coders use Swift Playgrounds to learn coding concepts or code AR projects.

According to Apple, millions of students in more than 5,000 schools around the world practice the "Everyone Can Code" curriculum.

Some Apple retail stores will also offer special sessions for coders of all ages, including preschoolers. They will be able to learn pre-programming activities through the help lab's "Helpsters" (one of the Apple TV+ original programs).

Apple will support the "Hour of Code" campaign this year through the "Programming One-Time Promoter Guide." The guide will help educators and parents host meetings using Swift Playgrounds and educational apps from the App Store.
