Mac in Education

Do more than ever before in the classroom.

The Mac is as easy to use as it is powerful. And it comes loaded with tools that help students communicate in compelling new ways and let teachers bring learning to life.


Why Mac in Education

Designed to be a better computer
Built for durability and full of the latest technological innovations, a Mac is amazing from the moment you take it out of the box — and wherever you take it after that.

A great way to discover and download Mac apps
There are thousands of educational apps available on the Mac App Store — from arts and language to maths and science.

Pages, Numbers and Keynote
These powerful apps — included on every new Mac — let students write, analyse data and present their work in engaging ways. And each app comes with templates designed to get them off to a great start.

iPhoto, iMovie and GarageBand
These powerful apps come as standard on every Mac and bring out the creative side of students and teachers alike. The possibilities for your classroom are endless.

OS X Mavericks
OS X Mavericks is the latest big release of the powerful Mac operating system. It includes features that make learning and collaborating more engaging and dynamic, along with powerful apps that work great with iPad and iPod touch.

Students can use iBooks on a Mac to read everything from textbooks to the classics. Reading books is intuitive and easy — turn pages with a swipe and zoom in on images with a pinch. Students can even highlight and take notes directly in iBooks.

iTunes U
iTunes U is a destination within iTunes solely dedicated to great educational content. It’s filled with countless learning resources like lectures, videos, books and more. And it’s all free.

iBooks Author
With the free iBooks Author app for Mac, you can easily make Multi-Touch books for iPad or Mac that let you teach your subject your way. It’s perfect for when you need to create materials tailored to your lesson and class level or for your students to author their own.

Built-in accessibility features
Every Mac comes equipped with assistive technologies like VoiceOver, built-in braille support, and Sticky Keys and Slow Keys that make it easy for students with disabilities to experience all that Mac has to offer.
