In addition, students and teachers are also provided with a Swift Coding Club kit which they can use to host their coding clubs at school on their own. The iPhone maker has designed this kit for 8-year-olds or older students, which they can use to collaborate, prototype as well as learn to code an app.

Launched two years ago, educational app Swift Playgrounds can be used in 15 different languages such as German, Spanish, English, Chinese, Japanese and Italian. Apple has been adding more courses into the app, including building apps using AR and programming toy robots.

Free syllabus and curriculum for the AP Computer Science Principles course will come out next school year, giving students a chance to gain AP credit for using Swift to learn to code. When finishing the class, students can sit a certification exam, named the App Development with Swift Level 1 exam. Certiport Authorized Testing Centers will hold the test for student across the world, asking the students about the Swift, core components of apps and app developer tools.

For the last two years, the educational app has been running to serve Apple’s efforts in education. Back in 2016, Apple released Everyone Can Code, teaching coding to learners at all ages from kindergarten to college and older. Currently, over 5,000 schools and colleges are running this program.
