Last summer, a friend of mine sent their kids to “Apple Camp.” At this three-day workshop, the eight and 10-year-old girls learned how to make and edit a movie. They also came home with a bunch of Apple Camp swag, which I tried to coax out of them in exchange for some cookies. They weren’t buying my pitch.
This year, Apple is opening up the camp to more content options. In addition to learning how to use iMovie, kids ages eight to 12 will be able to learn how to create their own digital book in iBooks. Campers will be using iPad tablets to draw illustrations for books and edit soundtrack music for movies.
