The best way to help students learn is on their own Mac, iPad, or iPod touch. Educators are transforming the learning experience by giving students anytime access to educational content on personal devices. Apple makes it easy by providing the right products, training, and support.
Individual Device Program
Providing your students with a personal device — a MacBook, iPad, or iPod touch — gives them immediate and continuous access to a rich variety of educational content, the web for research, tools that help them creatively express their knowledge, and much more. Studies show that students who have regular access to technology score higher in writing assignments, demonstrate improved analytical and problem-solving skills, and tend to be more collaborative and engaged. With an Apple device, your students can explore a world of ideas and content, develop amazing media-rich projects, and collaborate with people around the globe.

Apple Professional Development, Training, and Certification
Technology alone won't transform education. To inspire students, educators have to integrate technology into teaching and learning. That's why Apple offers a full range of custom onsite professional development courses to get you up to speed quickly, so you can start using Apple hardware and software — both inside and outside the classroom. Apple also offers certification courses and exams on OS X and other applications to help you master skills and build credibility.
