Mac is built for the classroom. It gives students and teachers new ways to be creative and productive and to craft deeply engaging learning materials.

Coding unlocks creativity, develops problem-solving skills and prepares students for future careers. Swift is a powerful programming language created by Apple developers to make writing code simple and intuitive, so it’s a perfect first language for teaching real-world programming. Xcode has everything students and teachers need to start building their own incredible apps for iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV.

Accessibility

Accessibility

Powerful assistive features are built into Mac to complement vision, hearing, motor skills, learning and literacy to create opportunities for all learners. Conveniently stored together under Accessibility in System Preferences, here are just a couple of them.

VoiceOver

VoiceOver offers support for more than 30 languages and quite simply will tell you exactly what is happening on the screen of your Mac, iPad, Apple Watch or Apple TV when you can’t see it. Giving auditory descriptions and helpful hints, the speaking rate and pitch can be adjusted to your preference. All of Apple’s built-in apps support VoiceOver.

Live Listen

Live Listen helps you have conversations in loud places. For quiet conversations, move the device towards the people you are talking to and the built-in microphone will amplify what they’re saying in your Bluetooth headphones.

Albert Pritchard Customer Story

Customer Story

Albert Pritchard Infant and Wood Green Junior Federated Schools, Wednesbury, West Midlands

The schools’ ICT suite was simply not fit for purpose. Immobile, unreliable, slow and expensive to licence, the equipment was not enabling teachers to engage with pupils in a way that would give them a keen interest to learn.

The schools installed a bright and modern Apple ICT suite and are now using a mixture of iMac, MacBook Pro and iPad to deliver the curriculum in a more exciting, interactive and mobile way.
