Apple has just announced a host of new educational sessions arriving at Apple Stores starting in May. Collectively titled “Today at Apple,” the sessions will range from new basic classes all the way to professional-level education.
All skill levels
The Kids Hour will teach children Sphero robots, Creating Music with GarageBand and Making Movies Together with iMovie.
Available at all 495 Apple Stores around the world, the free classes will be for all ages and skill levels with Apple products:
“At the heart of every Apple Store is the desire to educate and inspire the communities we serve,” said Angela Ahrendts, Apple’s senior vice president, Retail. “‘Today at Apple’ is one of the ways we’re evolving our experience to better serve local customers and entrepreneurs. We’re creating a modern-day town square, where everyone is welcome in a space where the best of Apple comes together to connect with one another, discover a new passion, or take their skill to the next level. We think it will be a fun and enlightening experience for everyone who joins.”
Instead of focusing on the products themselves, the class will highlight popular features. For beginners interested in iPhone photography, Apple will offer six how-to sessions covering shooting, organizing, editing, and other important tasks.
More advanced photographers can participate in Photo Walks outside the store that examine things like shadow, portraits, and storytelling.
There will also be specific classes for families, educators, and kids.
