The Apple website is highlighting the story of a UK school that is benefiting from Apple technology.
Just over two years ago, Crosshall Junior School in St. Neots, Cambridgeshire, had just one Mac. Now it has more than fifty, writes Apple.
According to the report, creativity has gone from strength to strength since the school turned to the Mac. Head of ICT John East describes the school’s experience of the Apple platform as "excellent, robust and effortless".
"Children with special learning needs like dyslexia have expressed the ease with which they can just do their work on a Mac", explains Head of ICT John East. "Where a child experiences a significant discrepancy between what they are thinking and what they can put down on paper, the Macs have helped bridge this gap," he added.
The school has recently installed a Mac mini in the reception area of the school. Combined with a large LCD display is used to show a rolling presentation containing news from the school, bulletins for parents and highlights of the children’s best creative work. A Made On A Mac revamped school website is also planned.
The School has been named a 'Creative Arts Gold Primary School', an award given to schools demonstrating outstanding achievement and leadership in ICT by Arts Council England. Headteachers from around the UK now visit Crosshall regularly to discover how ICT can be effectively integrated into the curriculum, according to Apple's report.
