Bringing education to life with Mac.
When it comes to education, Mac is the perfect device to revolutionise the way teachers teach and students learn. It gives teachers tools to make learning material more interesting and it’s the perfect sidekick for any university student. Here are some of the reasons why a Mac is the engine driving education.
Hardware built to succeed
Your Mac has been designed for durability and resilience in and out of the classroom or lecture hall. Built with the most innovative technology, Mac has all the features you need to create the opportunities that unleash great potential whether you’re a student or a teacher. MacBook Air is a light, portable machine that has ultra-fast flash storage which results in shorter start up and loading times. This means that you can get the most out of your lesson time. A long battery life also allows students and teachers to use their MacBook Air in class for up to 12 hours a day. So there will be no need to worry when you have a long day on campus ahead of you. For work that is rich in images, MacBook Pro is a powerful machine with the brightest, most colourful display that Apple has ever designed. It also has high storage capacity which is useful if you need to save a lot of content on your Mac.
Apps for sharing and collaborating
Pages, Numbers and Keynote are the powerful iWork apps that give students all the tools and templates they need to create amazing content in the classroom or on campus and at home. With iCloud and the new collaboration feature released with iWork, project work and group assignments just got a whole lot more efficient. Teammates can now edit documents, spreadsheets or presentations in real time, on their Mac, iPhone or iPad using iWork for iCloud no matter where they are! With a student’s busy schedule, this makes it a whole lot easier to get assignments done. Perhaps you’re a teacher and you’d like to create an interactive document that is shared with the rest of your class or colleagues? Now you can. With iWork and iCloud the opportunities for a productive and collaborative learning environment are endless.
Game-changing learning apps
Whether you’re a teacher or a student, there are a host of apps available for Mac to take your current educational content and give it new life. Photos, iMovie and GarageBand are apps designed by Apple that come standard on any Mac. With such advanced creative tools for movie making, image editing and music composition, you’ll be amazed at how easy they are to use. There will be endless options for any student to compile and present professional assignments no matter the topic. iBooks Author is another app designed by Apple that you can download for free off the Mac app store that allows students and teachers to design interactive books. For teachers and lecturers it is a great tool for formulating class specific content tailored to ability or age. And with a wide range of beautiful templates available, you’ll be able to create great content for your pupils or students in no time!
Learning across all abilities
Mac has built in amazing assistive features like VoiceOver for those who have visual problems, the ability to dictate instead of type and built-in braille support. Videos can be edited without a mouse or the trackpad, you can build a presentation without actually seeing the screen and even find files on your Mac using just your voice. These features are free, easy to use and come standard with every Mac so that students with certain disabilities can still experience everything that there is to love about Mac.
