Datacom education solutions with Apple

Ignite the creativity in every student.

At the heart of everything Apple does is a single vision: to create amazing products that enrich people’s lives. It shapes not only what they make, but how it’s made and what they care about. Apple technology is designed to give students new ways to experience and demonstrate their learning — no matter what type of learners they are

Apple creates products designed to inspire the minds of teachers and students

With Apple hardware and software in the hands of students, the work they need to do becomes the work they love to do. Students love iPad because it can be whatever they need it to be. It helps them explore topics in new ways, and to discover new skills with a multi-touch experience that’s interactive and engaging. Packed with power, Mac helps students and teachers tackle the most ambitious projects, fuelling them with confidence to take on any assignment.

Get students creating with augmented reality on iPad

Augmented reality (AR) on iPad can transform how students learn about and connect with the world around them. Turn your classroom into the cosmos. Make a history lesson as vivid as the present by restoring ancient artefacts. Or even peer inside everyday objects to understand how they’re put together. iPad is built to move and is packed with advanced technologies like accelerometers, powerful cameras, and an operating system designed with AR specifically in mind. All together, iPad creates an experience that’s simply not possible on other platforms.

Apple products are designed with an integrated approach to privacy and security

Apple builds privacy and security into all their products from the ground up, including apps and services for education. When schools set up accounts, devices, and content for their students in Apple School Manager, they can be sure that Apple will never sell student information and will never share it with third parties to use for marketing or advertising. They never build profiles of students based on their online behaviour, and they don’t collect or use student information other than to provide relevant educational services.

Apple products are designed with features to empower students of all abilities

Apple believes every student has the right to a quality education — an education that’s creative, collaborative, engaging, and relevant. And technology can enable and allow all students, with every type of learning style, to explore and open new doors to possibilities. Apple’s approach to accessibility is different from many other companies. Accessibility is part of the hardware, software, and operating system design process, so it’s an integral element of the user experience. The breadth and depth of accessibility features have been built to address a wide array of special needs, and to help students who experience challenges with vision, hearing, motor skills, and learning and literacy.
