Apple is continuing to raise its profile in the UK education market, announcing Apple Teacher Institute (ATI) 2002, its discounted training-initiative for educators.

ATI 2002 gives teachers training in the use of Apple's digital classroom-solutions. It develops Apple's focus on applying digital solutions, such as iMovie, to the classroom. Such solutions were exhibited by the company at the recent UK education and technology show, BETT.

Apple describes ATI 2002 as: "A unique opportunity to discover how to transform learning with new digital solutions. To join expert practitioners and like-minded educators and discover how a media-rich curriculum can make a motivating and enriching learning environment."

The event runs from March 25-28 at Cheltenham College, Gloucestershire. It's a residential course, and topics covered include: digital video in education; in-depth studies of creative education solutions; skill development in subject and age-group-relevant projects; and sharing of experiences, action planning and portfolio development.

The four-day course costs £99, including full board and accommodation. Places are limited, but registration isn't open yet.
