Apple, IBM to Focus on Educations in Next Phase of Their PartnershipAs their partnership continues to blossom, Apple and IBM are opting to focus their collective energies and resources on educators.

Ahead of the weekend, Fortune reported that Apple and IBM are preparing to the launch the Student Achievement App for classroom educators.

The app in question is supposedly a “dynamic teaching tool that harnesses data analytics to supply educators with actionable intelligence on a per-student basis.”

We’re told that a prototype of the platform will be completed this summer.
