Everyone Can Code program aims to be all-inclusive.
Apple is teaming up with leading educators for blind and deaf communities across the United States to bring accessible coding to their schools, the company reports.
Beginning this fall, schools for vision and hearing-impaired students will start teaching the Everyone Can Code curriculum for Swift, Apple’s programming language.
Apple created the comprehensive Everyone Can Code curriculum to teach students from kindergarten to college and beyond to learn and write code using Swift. With teacher guides and lessons, students learn the basics on iPad with Swift Playgrounds, which lets them use real code to solve puzzles and control characters with just a tap. Students can progress to developing their first iOS apps.
“Apple’s mission is to make products as accessible as possible,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook. “We created Everyone Can Code because we believe all students deserve an opportunity to learn the language of technology. We hope to bring Everyone Can Code to even more schools around the world serving students with disabilities.”
