Intro to Schoolwork
Schoolwork is an app for teachers and students that makes it easy to share and receive content, collaborate and integrate app activities into class instruction and homework assignments.
Schoolwork provides simple, integrated workflows for teachers and students to share and collaborate. Teachers can share content with students, even when students are out of the classroom. Teachers can assign tasks to students in the form of PDFs, links, documents and even activities within an app. Teachers can easily view class and student progress data, and use the data to better understand how students are doing and individualise instruction based on student needs. For students, messages and assignments automatically appear on their iPad, organised by class and deadline. Students have a single place to find content and instruction, to submit work and to view their progress.
Schoolwork serves as a home base for teachers and students, bringing together assignments, student-created work and student progress data all in one place.
See Apple Products for Teaching and Learning for information about the apps that can help you put the power of technology to work in and out of the classroom.
Schoolwork and teachers
The Schoolwork app lets teachers:
View all their Apple School Manager classes in one place. When a teacher signs in, Schoolwork automatically populates the dashboard with all the teacher’s Apple School Manager class information.
Collaborate with students on Handout items. Teachers can share files with students individually or with an entire class. When teachers share collaborative files, they can review student work and provide feedback while students are actively working on items.
View class and student progress. Teachers can assign Handout activities in apps that provide student progress data, then use the class progress view or student progress view to better understand how students are doing and individualise instruction based on student needs.
Schoolwork and students
The Schoolwork app lets students:
View new Handouts and Handouts due in the coming week (not all Handouts have an associated deadline).
View messages, work on assigned activities and submit work to teachers. Students can submit work from the Schoolwork app or they can use the Share button in the app where they did their work (for example, after creating a video in Clips, students can use the Share button and choose Schoolwork as the share destination).
Collaborate with teachers and other students on Handout items (for example, editing an essay in Pages for iOS). Depending on how a teacher chooses to share a collaborative file, students can edit the item and view feedback from their teacher and other students while actively working on the item themselves.
View progress. Students can work on assigned activities, then use their student progress view to see how they are progressing overall in their class and with each activity.
When teachers assign an activity in a progress-reporting app, the app automatically sends information about how students are doing as they complete the activity in the app. For other activities (for example, a link or PDF), teachers and students only see whether or not a student marked the activity as complete.
Note: To use Schoolwork, teachers and students must have a Managed Apple ID account. If you need help with your Managed Apple ID account, teachers should contact their school and students should contact their teachers.
