AppleInsider reports today that Apple has once again invited children aged eight through to 12 to participate in its annual Apple Camp. The series of 3-day retail store workshops has been developed by Apple with the aim of teaching children how to create rich digital content on iPad and Mac.
Just as with last year’s camp, participants in the 2015 Apple Camp can sign up to attend “Stories in Motion with iMovie” and “Interactive Storytelling with iBooks” workshops that will show them how to get the most out of multimedia content creation on iOS and Mac.
In “Stories in Motion,” children will learn how to use the iPad to storyboard ideas, shoot footage, and create a soundtrack in GarageBand for iOS. Having created the content on the iPad, the students will then be shown how to use iMovie for Mac to put their whole digital masterpiece together.
“Interactive Storytelling” works in a similar way, with the participants painting works of art on their iPad and then turning to the Mac to add sound effects and multitouch UI generation for iBooks Author.
Apple Camp is available at Apple Stores in Canada, China, France, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, the U.S., and the U.K., running from July and on through August. It’s free to attend the camp, but there are only limited spaces and they are sure to be popular, so act quickly if you’d like your child to attend.
