There is a battle in the tech world and the battle lines are clearly drawn. The two side at war are Safari users and right-clickers. That's right. Windows vs. Mac happens every day and my school district is no different. We are strictly a no Mac district. However, the battle is about to get interesting.

Today, my administrators gave me the green light to get a quote for two Macbooks. It is just two right now, but I bet we will see more in the next budget. I hope so anyway.

In light of this news, I visited with one of our Science teachers (who happens to be a good friend). She asked if there was a way to use our iPods to give oral prompts for her tests. The answer was a big, "You bet we can!" In fact, we are going to start making video recaps of her lab lessons to put on her website. When those Macs come in, it will even be that much easier to create content and even involve the students in creating the content. Let's see those Dell machines do THAT.

Yes David, PCs are real machines too! They can do that.

I have learned to do a lot on my PC. The problem is all the additional stuff I have to get in order to do it all. Don't get me wrong, it is worth the effort. Multimedia on a Mac is just so much easier.

I always enjoy reading about the Mac - PC war. I can't wait for the day when the war is over, and all school districts (and I) can afford duel-platform technology. I've talked to a few tech co-ordinators that use this in their schools and it seems like the best compromise ever.

First, props for convincing your admin. Second, ignore my green eyes of envy. Third, please continue posting on using the Macs so I can show my admin why I want one too.
