    Keynote is more than just a ‘presentation’ app. Embedded tools are exceptionally easy to use and include charts, diagrams, photos, video, audio and an extensive object library… as well as a powerful capacity to bring slides to life through the use of animation and cinematic effects. Slides can be exported as a pdf, jpegs, movies, animated gifs or even in powerpoint format. Keynote also works intuitively with the Apple pencil, with a ‘scribble’ capability or free drawing for note taking or annotating. Transitions and themed templates add an extra ‘wow’ factor for presentations. An exceptionally versatile app for use across every year level for learners and educators.

  • Pages:

    Pages is primarily a word processing app, that offers so much more than basic word processing. Utilising a broad range of tools and templates, learners and educators can easily create documents with customised fonts, personalise text styles and amazing graphics, photos, galleries, audio clips, video and even maths equations…to publish end products such as letters, reports or interactive books…with or without collaboration.

  • Numbers:

    Numbers supports hundreds of functions. Its intuitive tools make it simple to perform complex calculations with great precision, figure out formulas, filter the data and sum up what it all means. Use pivot tables and Smart Categories to quickly organise and summarise tables for an even deeper understanding of the story behind your data. Bar and column charts with clearly labelled numbers and adjustable sizes, insightful radar and doughnut charts, interactive graphs and a library of over 700 customisable shapes help you turn your numbers into beautiful data visualisations.

  • iMovie:

    Edit videos on the fly or explore iMovie on your Mac. Design your masterpiece from scratch or get help shaping your story with the new Magic Movie and Storyboards on iPhone or iPad. Select media or an album from your library, then Magic Movie identifies the best parts of the footage and automatically creates an edit. Experiment with different video looks by choosing from over 20 different styles. Easily rearrange or delete clips from a simplified list of your shots and modify the details with tools for clip trimming, splitting and more. And hear the magic as your music dynamically recomposes to the length of your project.

  • Clips:

    Only available on iOS (iPad and iPhone), use your camera to capture photos and video and seamlessy ‘drop into’  Clips and combine to create a movie to easily share with friends and family.

    Taking time to explore creativity by adding an animated title, captions, stickers, animated gifs, memojis, filters and music, results in a unique, informative and fun video to keep and share.

  • Maps:

    Maps is a versatile tool, not only for navigation purposes for cars, walking or public transport, but as a learning tool, it offers learners the opportunity to search for places and important landmarks, with detailed graphics and 3D capability, cartography and a ‘Look Around’ feature for street-level view and images. Siri enabled, even the youngest learners can utilise ‘Maps’ to learn more about the world around them…locally, nationally and globally.

  • Notes:

    Is a free app that can synchronise across iOS and MacOS devices and may be used for quick notes with text or handwriting (iOS with Apple pencil), but also offering embedded tools to create checklists and add images, web links, scanned documents or hand-drawn sketches. This app allows users to create folders and sub-folders to sort content and has a powerful search capability to locate typed or handwritten notes and easily share with family, friends or contacts.

  • Apple Classroom:

    Apple Classroom app is a teaching and management tool for iOS and MacOS, that allows teachers to create ‘classes’ of students to guide them through lesson activities, see their progress and support them in their learning. Students do not need this app to be part of an ‘Apple Classroom’.
