Apple Invites Press to An Event For Teachers and Students in Chicago

On the heels of opening up registration for its annual WWDC event, Apple will hold an education-focused event on March 27 that will highlight "creative new ideas for teachers and students", multiple reports indicate. There could also be new educational features that are going to arrive with iOS 11.3.

As usual, the invitation was thin on details - Apple is notoriously silent about future products and programs. Whether Apple plans to take on that market with a new product, or just service it with iPads, is unclear.

Iran: Tillerson's exit shows United States wants to quit nuclear deal
Pompeo needs to be confirmed by the Senate before he can occupy the Foggy Bottom headquarters of the State Department. The report in Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury" that Tillerson had called the president an "f'.ing moron", didn't help.

While this Apple education event is an exciting development in the world of technology, it's far from the first foray the company has made into the world of education. The field of computer science and programming continues to be extremely male-dominated, and by pouring money into initiatives focused on women, Apple may start to make a dent in that disparity by chipping away at it a little at a time. But on the other hand, we've been hearing rumors of new iPads being in the works, and an education-oriented event seems fit for their announcement. Apple's last education event took place all the way back in 2012 in New York City. And could they have Apple Pencil support, judging by the strokes seen in the invitation above?

Apple introduced Swift Playgrounds and its Everyone Can Code curriculum in 2016, both of which are free.
