So exciting to see this launch. We covered Apple and Google's fight over the classroom in March after the announcement event – looks like this launch is just the start.

@nickabouzeid when I was a kid in school all the computer labs had Macs. This was a strategic move by Apple to promote its hardware and get kids familiar with its operating system (instead of Windows) at a young age. The release of this app and other education-related initiatives is a modern day version of this.

Teacher has more tools if you have iPads in the classroom. However, I don't think many teachers will be content with just creating content on iPad and assigning them there. Teachers are more likely create content on their laptops and then assign and grade with their laptop. From what I'm seeing online, there is only a Classroom Mac app, which helps with monitoring student screens but not with assigning and distributing content. There is no Schoolwork app for Mac, which might not be possible because you need to use other iPad apps to create assignments. Yes, Schoolwork will work natively with many iPad apps really well, but I don't see ClassKit working with other web-based tools or expose a web API... This will help Apple's education strategy within slowly-growing number of iPad accessible districts, but will it be helpful in reverse the trend of Chromebook taking over?

I have not looked much into it, or know anything about it like Shortcuts coming from Workflow but it seems well executed! And let's be honest, anything to help teachers and students at this point. Mainly something pushed by Apple, and I agree with what Ryan said it is not like this is a brand new market for them. It is almost a core part of the Apple strategy.

but i feel in my country(India), this is expensive. Although, this is beneficiary in digital age, technology is adding more cost to education rather than reducing it.
