米国時間3月23日、Apple(アップル)は授業用アプリやApple Teacher Portfolioという教員向けの新たな認定など、教育関連のアップデートを発表した。教員はiPadとMacの基本的なスキルを習得する9つのレッスンを完了するとApple Teacherとして認定され、認定された教員は授業事例のポートフォリオを提出してApple Teacher Portfolioの認定を受けることができる。ポートフォリオを同僚と共有したり自分の成果を紹介するために使ったりすることもできる。

教員は、アップルが開設している教員向け自習プラットフォームのApple Teacher Learning CenterでApple Teacher Portfolioバッジの獲得を目指す。iPadやMacのアプリを使ってアートやビデオ、アニメーション、録音、ページレイアウト、ポッドキャスト、データトラッカー、音楽などを作るというように、教員はアップルのテクノロジーを授業にどう取り入れるかを学ぶ。アップルはサンプルのテンプレートを提供しており、教員はこれをカスタマイズしたり組み合わせたりして、iPadやMac、そしてKeynoteやGarageBand、iMovieなどのアップル製ソフトウェアを使うオリジナルのプロジェクトを作成できる。

アップルはスクールワークアプリ、クラスルームアプリ、Everyone Can Createカリキュラムのアップデートも発表した。Everyone Can CreateはiMovieやClips、GarageBandなどアップルのクリエイティブツールを活用できるように以前から公開されていたカリキュラムだ。

スクールワークアプリでは、課題を書き出し、その後スクールワークやその他のプラットフォームに書き戻せるようになったため、スクールワークのプロジェクトを同僚と共有できる。またサイドバーのナビゲーションが改良され、クラスや課題、生徒のアカウントにすばやくアクセスできるようになる。

クラスルームアプリのアップデートは、リモート学習に対応するものだ。2020年、米国でロックダウンが大規模に実施されている時期に対応していれば、より有用だっただろう。このアップデートで教員はリモートの生徒をクラスルームのセッションに招待し、アプリの使い方を教え、生徒の許可を得た上で生徒の画面を見て、学習状況を把握することができるようになる。クラスルームアプリはMac Catalystを使って再構築されたため、iPadとMacで動作し、アップルのM1チップを搭載したMacでも動作する。

Everyone Can Createのカリキュラムには小規模なアップデートが多数ある。スケッチのガイドにはKeynoteのモーショングラフィックスとアニメーション、写真のガイドにはKeynoteを使ったアニメーションGIFの作成が追加された。ビデオのガイドではグリーンスクリーンなどの特殊効果を使ったショートフィルムの作成を取り上げ、音楽のガイドにはGarageBandを使ったポッドキャスティングの機能が追加されている。現在、世界で5000以上のK-12教育機関(日本では幼稚園〜高校に相当)がこのカリキュラムを利用している。

アップルは2020年にスクールワークアプリとクラスルームアプリをアップデートし、スクールワークにはクラウドを利用した課題の管理や生徒とのFaceTime通話などリモート学習に対応するアップデートもあった。しかしコロナ禍で学校がリモート学習を余儀なくされる中、Google(グーグル)は積極的にソフトウェアを提供し教員にアピールしてEdTechのライバルたちをリードした。多くの学区で低価格のChromebookが配布され、2020年に需要が急増した。Bloomberg Quintによれば、Google Classroomも2020年4月までにアクティブユーザーが1億人以上へと急増したという。2021年2月にグーグルは、同社のサービスを利用する生徒、教員、管理者が2020年の4000万人から1億5000万人以上に増えたと述べている。

アップルは今回の発表で同社の教育ソフトウェアプログラムの利用者数には言及していない。とはいえ、教員にポートフォリオの作成と共有を奨励すると、アップルのツールを採用するプロセスに教員がこれまで以上に直接関与することになり、このようにしてアップルは採用を推進している。

Apple Teacher Portfolioは米国時間3月23日に発表され、Apple Teacher Learning Centerで提供されている(訳者注:この日本語記事掲載時点で、日本のApple Teacher Learning Centerではまだ提供されていない)。Everyone Can CreateのガイドはApple Booksで無料でダウンロードできる。スクールワークアプリとクラスルームアプリの新バージョンは、AppleSeed for ITでベータ版が提供されている。


【原文】

Apple this morning announced a handful of education-related updates to its suite of classroom apps as well as a new recognition for teachers, called the Apple Teacher Portfolio. Teachers who complete a total of nine lessons where they learn foundational skills on iPad and Mac to become an officially recognized Apple Teacher will be able to submit their portfolio of lesson examples to earn the Apple Teacher Portfolio recognition. They can then also share their portfolio with their colleagues or use it to showcase their work.

Teachers can work towards acquiring the badge through the Apple Teacher Learning Center, which is Apple’s self-paced learning platform for educators. This offering is designed to help teachers learn how to incorporate Apple technologies in the classroom, including by using iPad and Mac apps for creating art, videos, animations, recordings, page layouts, podcasts, data trackers, music, and more. Across the lessons, Apple provides templates as examples which teachers can customize or combine to make their own projects that use either an iPad or Mac and Apple software like Keynote, GarageBand, iMovie, and others.

In addition, Apple today rolled out updates across its Schoolwork and Classroom apps, as well as its “Everyone Can Create” curriculum, which has historically focused on taking advantage of Apple’s creative tools like iMovie, Clips and GarageBand.

In Schoolwork, teachers will gain the option to share Schoolwork projects with colleagues by exporting their assignments, which can then be imported back into Schoolwork or other platforms. Other improvements have been made to the sidebar navigation to make it quicker to access classes, assignments and student accounts.

Classroom, meanwhile, has been updated for remote learning — a feature that would have been more useful to have rolled out in 2020, amid the height of U.S. lockdowns during the pandemic. With the update, teachers will be able to invite remote students to Classroom sessions where they’ll be able to guide them to apps, view their screen (with the student’s permission) and track their engagement. The software has also been rebuilt using Mac Catalyst, making it work across iPad and Mac, including Macs powered by Apple’s M1 chips.

The Everyone Can Create” curriculum has had a number of smaller updates. Its Drawing guide has been updated to include motion graphics and animation in Keynote, while Photos now covers the creation of animated GIFs using Keynote, and the Camera and Photos apps. The Video guide will now explore creating short films using a green screen and other special effects, and Music adds new podcasting features using GarageBand, Apple says. Today, more than 5,000 K-12 institutions worldwide are using the curriculum.

Apple last year had updated its Schoolwork and Classroom apps, with some updates to Schoolwork to support distance learning — like managing assignments over the cloud and support for calling students via FaceTime, for example. But even as the pandemic forced schools towards remote learning, Google jumped ahead of edtech rivals by aggressively giving away its software and courting teachers. Its low-cost Chromebooks were being given out across school districts, doubling demand in 2020. Google Classroom, meanwhile, doubled to more than 100 million active users by April 2020, Bloomberg Quint reported. As of Feb. 2021, Google said the service was being used by over 150 million students, teachers and admins, up from just 40 million last year.

Apple didn’t say today how many users it has for its own educational software programs, by comparison. However, by encouraging teachers to create a portfolio which they can then share, Apple is helping to push towards greater adoption of its tools by more directly involving educators in the process.

Apple Teacher Portfolio launched today and is available in the Apple Teacher Learning Center. The “Everyone Can Create guides” are a free download on Apple Books. And new versions of both Schoolwork and Classroom are available in beta now through AppleSeed for IT.
