Apple offering coding resources for 500,000 Chicago students


Apple announced plans to expand its Everyone Can Code program for nearly half a million students. The announcement is in partnership with the City of Chicago, Chicago Public Schools, City Colleges of Chicago and local business and non-profits.

Starting this spring, Chicago Public Schools and City Colleges of Chicago will expand Everyone Can Code curriculum and materials to reach students citywide. For the first time, City Colleges of Chicago will offer the innovative App Development with Swift curriculum, helping students build skills around coding and app development.

Swift Playgrounds for iPad is a fun, interactive way for students to learn the fundamentals of coding with Swift.
Chicago Public Schools will also offer new Swift Coding Clubs, which bring coding education to after-school programs. Swift Coding Clubs guide students through key coding concepts, introduce them to Swift and walk them through an app design and prototyping project.
