Phoenix Network Technology News (author / Jianan Wei Yuxuan) October 12 news, Apple today in Sanlitun Apple retail store held today at Apple's creative camp in Beijing project, participants in the project in the closing ceremony to share their work and learning ideas.
The Today at Apple Ventures project in Beijing, one of the world's first cities, was launched in June. In partnership with the China Poverty Relief Foundation and the Youcheng Entrepreneurs Poverty Relief Foundation, Apple selected a group of working youths in Beijing to begin a 12-week program that included photography and video, music and app design. Students explore their creativity in the Creative Camp, where they are assisted by professional mentors from the industry.
At the closing ceremony, participants from three different directions shared their learning experiences from the Creative Camp and showcased their work through 12 weeks of study. Among them are creators who have started updating their daily lives on short video platforms, librarians who have first come into contact with app designs, and workers who write words while working south.
Wang Qi is a community librarian, and her day job makes her want to stimulate the reading interest of the village residents in the city, so that books become a medium to promote people-to-people communication. She also chose an app-designed course to create her own app- awareness, and wanted to contribute more to the community. In addition to being able to see the library's collections, Wang also envisions allowing users to borrow books from neighbors and even launching a book club to allow books to flow and make the community more active.
Under the guidance of app designer Sun Yong, she learned to start with the target user setting, go through the app design process of asking questions, getting feedback, optimizing and perfecting to solve problems. Constantly improve their ideas through mind maps, questionnaires, etc.
"Looking forward to inviting my community partners to create together, with their help, to continue to optimize the app, prototype the planned app, and put it on the app store for more people to use," Wang said. ”
Education has always been an area of particular importance to Apple, whether it's discounts for students and educators, or the ever-updated Today at Apple training courses, which express Apple's desire to contribute to community education and educational equality through its capabilities.
"Education and creativity are at the heart of Apple' philosophy, and we believe that everyone should have the tools and guidance to find out what they love." Deirdre O'Brien, Apple's senior vice president of retail and human resources, said, "Today's Apple's exciting work in Beijing is inspiring and inspiring to expand the program to more cities around the world." ”
The Today at Apple Ventures project is also Apple's new attempt in this area, making it more likely that more underappregented communities will be given access to nonprofits everywhere.
