Apple products offer easy-to-learn tools that encourage students to communicate their best thinking in compelling new ways.
iLife brings student projects to life.
Every Mac comes with iLife, a suite of software that lets you do amazing things with photos, video, music and more. With iPhoto, you can create multimedia slideshows or put together a field trip photo book, complete with text and maps. GarageBand turns the Mac into a fully fledged studio for recording podcasts, songs and other audio. And with iMovie, you can make your own documentaries and short films and edit them like a pro. Whatever students can imagine, iLife can help them express it.
iWork makes productivity more fun.
Keynote lets you transform reports and essays into dynamic, animated presentations featuring photos, video, even music. Use the stunning graphics in Numbers to take charts and spreadsheets to a new level. With Pages, you can start with a beautiful Apple-designed template, add your own text, then add photos from iPhoto to create professional-looking essays and newsletters. It’s all part of iWork, a suite of productivity applications designed for the Mac.1
iPad. A whole new way to create.
The large Multi-Touch iPad screen lets you use your fingertips — and your imagination — to do just about anything. Put together a HD video and soundtrack with a few taps in iMovie. Use GarageBand to turn iPad into a guitar or a piano and record a song. Drag images into a Pages report and watch your text instantly wrap around them. Open the smart onscreen keyboard to enter data in Numbers. And show off Keynote slides with a flick of the finger.2 You can even print your projects straight from iPad using AirPrint.3

iPhone, iPod touch and iPad apps are transforming the way teachers teach and students learn.
There really is an app for that.
Because they work on mobile devices, apps enable learning both inside and outside the classroom. And with thousands of apps on the App Store, you’re sure to find the perfect one. From maths games to vocabulary flash cards to anatomy visualisers, there’s an app for every subject and every level of instruction — from nursery to higher education.
Students love apps.
Apps help personalise instruction, address a variety of learning styles and create highly interactive classrooms. That not only makes for a more engaging learning environment, it also results in performance improvements across the board. And since most students are familiar with the Apple devices these apps are made for, they can start using them straightaway.

From lectures and slideshows to gallery tours and interviews, podcasting engages students in ways the printed page can’t.
Podcasts take the “room” out of “classroom”.
Podcasts give students more freedom to learn — wherever and whenever they want. Students can play podcasts on any computer, iPod, iPad or iPhone. So when they’re in class, they can spend more time participating in meaningful discussions and working on team projects.
Creating podcasts on the Mac.
GarageBand — included on every Mac — makes it simple to create podcasts. And Podcast Producer in Mac OS X Server gives you an end-to-end solution for capturing, encoding, publishing and distributing high-quality podcasts, such as university lectures, videos and presentations.
