Why Apple?

Apple has engaged with educators for over 30 years to explore and enhance the experience of teaching and learning. They have authored seminal research, established strong relationships with education thought leaders and have worked closely with a community of educators to advise them on what it takes to integrate technology into learning environments to the benefit of learners. Apple believes in a world in which all learners are empowered to discover their own special genius. The Apple personal learning environment supports creativity, collaboration, innovation and critical thinking as a means to transform the way teachers teach and students learn.

Once we’d made the decision and ordered our Apple equipment, RM didn’t just disappear, as some suppliers would have done.
We’ve really appreciated their involvement since then.
