6 reasons why teachers and students choose Mac in the classroom

While careers and futures are moulded in lecture halls, learning is enhanced, advanced and made fun with Apple Mac. Why do students produce awesome work with Mac, and why is it the most lusted over, respected and regarded piece of tech in the classroom? Here are five reasons:

1. Powerful work apps
With Mac’s work apps, you can easily write, analyse data and present your way in dynamic ways. While Mac is compatible with Microsoft Office, making it easy to share files with PC users, there are also key productivity apps such as:
Pages: Use it for basic document creation, or design beautiful newsletters, reports, flyers and more.
Numbers: Build tables, charts and graphs that jump off the page.
Keynote: Create presentations with stunning templates plus effects such as transitions, 3D charts and video.

2. Amazing creative apps
Mac comes with standard apps for creativity, which include:
Photos makes it easy to put together captivating slideshows, make a photo book to recap the school year or chronicle a field trip with snapshots.
iMovie: Create video projects such as documentaries, fun social movies, or even a trailer for a school play.
GarageBand: Record, edit and mix your own music or sound effects for any project.

3. Superb editing apps
If you are looking to produce incredible creative projects, then Final Cut Pro X and Logic Pro X are two tools you can’t do without. These apps (sold separately) let your classroom take full advantage of the power of the Mac to enhance photographs, make music and edit video. They are so good, that even the pros in the real world use them.

4. Mac app store
The Mac App Store is filled with educational apps for students and teachers. Students can enhance their learning and entertainment from hundreds of apps, while teachers can organise lessons for the day, homework for the week, and meetings for the year
