Apple and IBM Team Up to Deliver Data Analytics Platform to Schools

JUST THE TWO OF US: Apple and IBM having a budding education package in the works, reports Apple Insider. Tentatively scheduled to enter four U.S. school districts as a pilot program in 2016, the "Student Achievement App" (as Apple Insider reports it to be named) provides teachers with student-specific data analytics and runs exclusively on Apple hardware. Representatives from Apple and IBM presented the project to Texas-based Coppell ISD's Board of Trustees last Monday. While details are scarce, Apple Insider reports that the platform will build off of IBM's MobileFirst for iOS platform. More here from the Coppell Gazette.
