Why HR needs to look at Apple’s Schoolwork app

Apple introduced its Schoolwork app for teachers and students at its Field Trip event in Chicago in spring 2018. The app promises so much for educators, but it may well prove itself outside the education sector as an on-boarding and training facilitator for human resources teams.

What is Apple’s Schoolwork app?

Schoolwork is kind of a digital class management app teachers can use to share tasks with students — they can send notes, PDFs, links to the web, and even activities that need to be transacted in other apps. (The apps must support Schoolwork, and Apple has introduced an API called ClassKit for this.)

Teachers can then use Schoolwork to monitor how pupils are progressing through the app, how they score, and their general attainment scores. They can also monitor time spent on tasks assigned within the app.

It’s easy to see how these tools could lend themselves to use by online training providers, as it could enable a much more personalized remote learning experience. But learning isn’t just about what happens at college and school.
