As part of my day to day work, I help to run Stoke-on-Trent Apple RTC. I assist teachers by helping them choose the correct technology to support their Curriculum. Over the years, I have found that Apple Computers provide a range of excellent solutions for classroom innovation. Our work with Apple technologies, meant that it mades sense to become an RTC (Regional Training Centre). The Stoke-on-Trent RTC is a part of Stoke Learning Services.
RTCs focus their training on the curriculum-enhancing opportunities of using iLife, the multimedia software that comes with every new Mac, and features Apple’s award-winning iMovie, iPhoto, iDVD, GarageBand and iWeb applications.
Stoke Regional Training Centre have three Apple Distinguished Educators in the team to provide the added value of a practising teacher with real-world experience of integrating Apple technology into the curriculum.
Teachers who attend our courses will discover that the Macs and iPads & iPod Touches offer robust, stable, easily integrated solutions and that can work seamlessly alongside PCs.
Apple’s reputation in education is synonymous with creativity. At Stoke RTC, teachers can discover how the Mac platform offers digital solutions for all subjects in the curriculum; learn how Apple’s creative tools can help children learn more effectively; and explore how technology can break down barriers between different ability groups and between the classroom and the outside world.
