Educational Event: New 9.7-inch iPad with Apple Pencil Support Unveiled

Apple's educational event, which took place today in Chicago (more precisely at Lane Technical College Prep High School), began with a video talking about imagination and how it is the key to knowledge. Titled “A person can change the world” (“One person can change the world”), he focuses on how people with passion can change the status quo.

Lane Technical College Prep High School was not chosen for nothing. As Tim Cook explained, Chicago where Apple opened (last year) one of its most beautiful stores. In addition, the city's public institutions are already teaching programming for children in collaboration with Apple, and Lane Tech has graduated most Ph.Ds from all US public schools.

Apple's synergy with the big educational market is today. The CEO recalled that education has always been important to Apple since its inception, and that the company has never stopped working on educator tools. A clear example of this is the Swift Playgrounds app, which helps teach Swift language on iPads. In addition, children and teachers can also learn at various workshops and events held at Apple Stores (in Chicago, for example, there are only two stores).

Apple already works with over 40 organizations around the world to help with programming learning, but it wants to take those experiences even further. According to Greg Joswiak, there are now over 200,000 apps focused on education. Many of them give children the opportunity to see and understand, in a completely interactive and immersive way, under a finished theme (for example, like a planted banana and even hearing from people who work with it).

According to a teacher who uses the iPad as a teaching tool, with them children are "content creators, not just consumers."

New iPad

To help with this task, Apple today introduced a new iPad.

His design is the standard we are used to, with the same frame, Touch ID and front camera. However, it is the most affordable iPad from Apple, now compatible with the Apple Pencil, which until now was unique to the Pro models. The low latency high definition display brings the same pressure capabilities and tilt sensitivity to the Apple Pencil, including the Pages, Numbers, and Keynote (iWork support) applications, which will gain pencil support so you can easily add drawings and notes to documents, presentations, and spreadsheets.
