Apple has posted a page on its Web site concerning the Apple Teacher Institute conference, which took place last month.

The page is a feature about the event written by author Eleanor Stanley.

The first of its kind to be held in Europe, the event was based on a series of similar US-based conferences.

The three-day event introduced teachers from a range of academic institutions to Apple’s approach to digital-video technology with applications such as iMovie 2, iDVD 2, and QuickTime Pro.

The Apple Teacher Institute conference attracted 60 participants from the UK and Germany, and ran from March 25 to 28 at Cheltenham College. The school uses Macs running an AirPort network.

Teachers at the event were enthusiastic: “We’re running out of superlatives to describe it,” said one.

Another commented: “Before I came here, I never actually thought I’d use iMovie in my teaching. This seminar has completely changed the way I thought about using multimedia in the classroom.”
