“To support schools in getting the most from Apple products, we developed professional learning as an essential part of our education offering,” Susan Prescott, Apple’s VP of Worldwide Developer Relations and Product Marketing for Enterprise and Education, said in a statement.

“The new ‘Apple Teacher Portfolio’ helps build educators’ confidence in reimagining their lessons and recognizes them for the great work they do every day,” Prescott added.

With 21 templates and lesson ideas inspired by the Everyone Can Create project guides, educators can enhance their work with engaging everyday lessons for students, using apps like Keynote, GarageBand, and iMovie.

For educators, the new portfolio becomes a compilation of their most creative and engaging lessons, a body of work ready to share with leadership and peers, the company said.
