Software Firm Jamf Will Ensure 150 Haitian Preschool Students And Their Teachers Will Have Access To iPads, Software And Curriculum
As users marvel at the amount of upgrades currently available in technology, not everyone has access to the same opportunities. An often forgotten motivation of late Apple founder Steve Jobs was to make sure that users got the most out of their devices. This belief fermented a holistic focus towards Apple's products, demonstrated by strong integration gains. However, this is not easy to achieve, as demonstrated by the high price tags which accompany most electronics. Now, 150 kindergarten children in Haiti will experience an integration of the iPad in their daily learning. Take a look below for the details.
Software Firm Jamf Announces Plans To Add The iPad In 150 Preschool Children's Daily Learning Experience; Looks To Contribute Towards The Children's Knowledge Base
Basic internet access is a phenomenon taken for granted across the world's educated populace. However, we all often forget that a large chunk of global population does not have access to even the most basic of amenities, including clean drinking water. Alongside, technology makes great strides everyday, ensuring that we as humans can do far more from far little then was possible even two decades back. The 21st century rides on the third wave, with its potential starting to truly stretch wings.
The internet is massive; allowing users to store a vast amount of information, authentic and inauthentic. Access to the right tools, at the right time breeds potential for greater impact creation; even by those with modest means. As the aftermath of the Stoneman Douglass tragedy demonstrates, even high-school students can change the world in important ways, only if provided with the right knowledge and guidance.
Keeping this in mind, Jamf now intends to bring this potential to kindergarten students. The firm's latest initiative will integrate 150 Apple iPads into the daily school life of teachers and children. It's a good move, one which will help in recognizing true talent at an early stage. “This project is part of a grand vision,” said Dean Hager, CEO, Jamf. “WWe want to get technology into the hands of kids as an avenue to a brighter future. It is our mission to not only introduce these kids to iPads, but more importantly, to get them excited about the possibilities that technology could bring into their lives.”
The package is bundled with a keyboard case, eSpark and more importantly, Apple's Everyone Can Code curriculum. It's dubbed as the 'Innovation Pod', hoping to translate into adequate recognition of STEM potential in children. Thoughts? Let us know what you think in the comments section below and stay tuned.
