If you are an educational leader who wants to learn about managing technology—in 1995—this historic snapshot is for you!
This glossy white folder (measuring 9.25 x 11.75 inches) has a metallic red Apple logo in the lower-right corner and contains everything that was used in an Apple Education event on August 3, 1995, titled “Managing Technology in the 90’s.” This was one of three events held in Illinois (Drury Lane Theatre, Oak Brook Terrace) during August 1995.
The folder contains the following items:
- Embossed invitation to the event
- 2 brochures: Recommended Products At a Glance, Apple Education Series At a Glance
- 3 handouts: Finding the Promise of Educational Technology (David Dwyer, 1993); Apple Classrooms of Tomorrow Research: Teacher Beliefs and Practices; and a Bibliography of Apple Classrooms of Tomorrow sources
- Packet of detailed information about Apple devices available at the time
- Apple Facts (product booklet, April 1995)
- Pad of paper for note taking
Apple Education’s aims at the time—ideas that are still viable today—were discussed in one of the brochures:
“Welcome to the Apple Education Series. We know that educators today are eager to integrate technology into the classroom. But that need requires more than just a computer—you need well-thought-out, education-specific products and programs that include hardware, software, technical support, and curriculum tools flexible enough to accommodate different teaching styles and individual student needs.”
