3. Earn Recognition.

When you’re ready, test the new skills you’ve learned by taking interactive quizzes in the Apple Teacher Learning Center. Pass a quiz, and earn a new badge. It’s a fun way to track and share your progress. Collect all eight badges on either iPad or Mac to be recognized with an official Apple Teacher logo that you can share with the world. And, as an Apple Teacher, you can go even further by learning and teaching coding with Swift Playgrounds. Get inspired with tips, ideas, and real stories
