Are you looking for new ways to integrate technology within the teaching and learning experience of your classroom? Are you struggling to find ideas because of all the other daily teaching tasks you need to take care of first? We know that keeping students engaged in the classroom can be a daily challenge. Add to that the potential of technology be a distraction rather than an enhancement and the most experienced educators may feel stretched.

Introduction to Chromebook
Steve provided a practical hands on approach to using iPads and macs with students. Even though he tailored the day to suit the ability level of the group, he stretch our learning into areas we did not expect. He is obviously keeping pace with the latest development of apps and websites for teachers and students, and this was reflected in his presentation. I would have no hesitation in recommending him for a professional learning day. It is money well spent.
Our Year 6 students have worked with Steve many times over the last three years, today those students are creating iMovie
advertisements, including using green screen effects, for various projects and podcasts and soundscapes with Garageband.
They are able to combine several of these presentation tools to create a high standard multimedia presentation which would
match that of high school students and sometimes beyond.
We have utilised the services of with MAC1 over the last three years in the integration of ICT into the curriculum. We would not hesitate to recommend MAC1 as a training provider as their service and commitment has been outstanding. Student learning and skills have been significantly enhanced whilst the reaction of staff has been universally positive. Importantly staff have transferred their training into the classroom to improve learning outcomes for students.
Dear Steve and Simone,
I wanted to thank you both personally for the outstanding skill and expertise you shared with us today. You enabled me to understand coding a little better. It was so much fun and I felt more and more capable as I developed my coding skills by designing a game. The kids were also amazing and were great tutors – a nice role reversal! Thanks for demystifying coding for me.
