Apple is offering a free “Digital Schools CD” featuring interviews with teachers, administrators and students for any educational institution in the U.S. Visit the “Rethink. The Value of Achievement” website and fill out a form to have one mailed to you. This is the introductory paragraph from the website:
Imagine a school where all students are engaged in learning every hour, every day. Imagine an environment where everyone is using powerful learning tools 24 x 7 to create, collaborate, and publish in the classroom and beyond. We invite you to rethink the value of achievement and how Apple can help to set learning free, enabling your students to pursue their limitless potential.
Interviews included on the CD focus on how other schools and leaders have worked to build 21st century learning environments.
