Everyone Can Create
The projects in the Everyone Can Create guides teach students to develop and communicate ideas through video, photography, music and drawing. And they help ignite creativity by giving teachers fun and meaningful ways to bring these skills into any lesson, in any year group. Find out more at https://www.apple.com/ie/education/everyone-can-create/. The guides can be used by teachers or students which make them a great project for students to be working on as a creative task or an extension activity.
