John Couch - take 2

Learning with Apple -
We’re not here to sell you a computer, we’re here to share with you what we think education could be in the next few years.

Viewing technology as an environment - not a tool.

Technology is only a technology born before the technology...

Apples Education Vision
A world in which all learners are empowered to realise their own unique talents. (I like it - simple, but has meaning... could fit with our school).

Everyone is gifted, or has gifts.

Student expectations:
Will the learning environment:
Accommodate my mobile lifestyle
Encourage teamwork and collaboration
Adapt to my individual learning style

Strategic “ Directions” Challenges
Innovation needed in : Pedagogy (learning) , technology (devices), content (and delivery).

Steps apple are taking :
Technology: Mac, Ipod and iPhone, IPad.
Digital expression - create, share, and be productive

“People only see what they are prepared to see” - Ralph Waldo Emerson
