Has your school fallen into a frustrating loop? Constantly updating your technology? At JTRS, we can help you break this cycle by refreshing your infrastructure with Apple Mac. This powerful device is built for learning at its highest level. Portable and durable, it is also the perfect tool for distance learning.
Here are just five reasons why you should consider a Mac in your school.
Creativity is one of the most 21st-century skills by employers. It helps students become better communicators, problem-solvers and ‘out of the box’ creators. With Mac built-in creative applications, a student can stretch their imaginations. GarageBand and iMovie are just two of the endlessly creative apps that come as standard, but for the more advanced students, apps like Photoshop, Logic and Final Cut Pro work perfectly on Mac.
Pages, Keynote and Numbers make up the iWork Suite. These powerful pieces of software support students to create stunningly engaging documents. Their seamless interconnectivity and collaboration capabilities allows learners to pull presentation, spreadsheet and formatting tools together.
Share projects wirelessly between Macs and through AirDrop or enjoy the find files across multiple devices with the shared storage of iCloud. Students can easily convert files for a range of different technology platforms. All of your technology can connect, regardless of make and model.
The Mac is built with accessibility in mind. Customisable functionalities like Speech, Dictation, or Zoom can cater for a huge scope of varying educational needs and completely change how an individual interacts with the device. Educationally specific capabilities can support nuanced needs so that every student can access the learning.
Evolving your pedagogy to embed Mac might seem scary. Apple support teachers. Not only can you receive training from an Apple Professional Learning Specialist, but you can also build your skills on Apple Teacher. This online training platform teaches pedagogical specific Mac skills.
Don’t just choose Mac to future proof the technological education at your school. Do it to empower learning and enrich your teaching.
