Apple Equips Gallaudet University With Technology to Improve Quality of Education
Gallaudet University has chosen Apple to improve the quality of education using innovative technology that the world’s leading smart gadget manufacturing company offers. In the changing education sector where students and lecturers are interacting online, Gallaudet University and Apple are transforming online education with shared work and viewing experiences. For example, students can now use Sidecar with iPad Pro and MacBook Pro, giving more screen options for presentations, shared work, and viewing. As part of the Apple deal for the university, every student and faculty member was equipped with a new iPad Pro, Apple Pencil, and Smart Keyboard Folio.
At the time of this announcement, Susan Prescott, Apple’s Vice President of Markets, Apps, and Services said,
“It’s an honor to work with such an innovative institution as Gallaudet. It’s great to see technology have this kind of impact across an entire university while also bringing coding together with American Sign Language and creativity. It’s so exciting that Gallaudet students will participate in WWDC next year.”
Apple’s initiative to improve the quality of education experience has synced with Connected Gallaudet. Connected Gallaudet is a part of the university’s strategic plan: equity and belonging, bilingual mission, and innovation. Roberta J. Cordano, president of Gallaudet University acknowledged Apple’s role in making Connected Gallaudet digitally successful during the COVID-19 pandemic, helping the institution become transformational “as we moved entirely online for the fall semester.”
In addition to the gadgets that Apple provided, graduates from Gallaudet.have an opportunity to be part of Apple’s larger technology development team, For example, Apple is giving students opportunities in technology after they graduate from Gallaudet. Apple Carnegie Library, in Washington, D.C., holds several recruiting efforts with Gallaudet. The group currently employs more than 30 team members of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community, of which many are Gallaudet alumni.
