Guiding students through the discovery of technology
and of themselves.
Greater's Apple Swift Coding Program combines the GREATER Leadership Curriculum with Apple’s Swift Playgrounds app and curriculum. Swift Playgrounds is a revolutionary coding app for iPad that makes learning Swift (Apple’s Developer Platform) interactive and fun. It requires no coding knowledge, so it’s perfect for students just starting out. Solve puzzles to master the basics using Swift — a powerful programming language created by Apple and used by the pros to build today’s most popular apps. Then take on a series of challenges and step up to more advanced playgrounds designed by Apple and other leading developers.
Even for people who’ve put the time in to learn to program, jumping from software to hardware can be a challenge — even if said challenge is just figuring out where to start. How do you program something real? How do you build something that moves? Apple is taking steps to tackle that problem by bringing third-party hardware — think robots, drones, and musical instruments — into its learn-to-code platform, Swift Playgrounds.
