Using the tagline "Let's take a field trip, ' Apple says that the event will focus on 'creative new ideas for teachers and students" ...

Apple began sending out invitations today for an event that the company will be holding on March 27 in Chicago.

As for what we might see at the event, you can certainly expect software, such as improvements to Apple's Classroom app. There could also be new educational features that are going to arrive with iOS 11.3. Hey, maybe such a new iPad would support the Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil, making the iPad more capable for students who need to write and draw. This year's event will have a strong focus on education, but as far as if or what new gadgets will be revealed - there's only speculation.

As is to be expected, the details regarding the Apple education event were sparse. But on the other hand, we've been hearing rumors of new iPads being in the works, and an education-oriented event seems fit for their announcement.

Business Insider speculated that Apple will announce a new Apple Pencil and a new iPad because the invitation's cover "is drawn in a calligraphic style". The Apple iPad devices also feature Swift Playgrounds, which acts as a code education platform.

On average, Apple holds two to three events per year, although it only held one major event last year in September.
