UE gets an All-iMac Classroom
This photo might not be believable 5 years ago but more and more schools and universities are switching to Macs in their classroom — this one was shot in one of the classrooms of the University of the East.
This one could be for a multimedia class (I am told by one student there that it’s for mixed-use and usually for the Java programming class. I think this is an old photo from a year ago.
I’m sure a lot of Philippine schools (especially La Salle, Benilde and Ateneo) have classrooms like these for a year or two now but every time I see one, I just can’t help but be amazed. During my college years as a computer engineering student, we only had an IBM PC clone 486-DX4 100MHz (and we still had to share them!).
And to think that most public schools in the country lack enough classrooms, books and desks, it’s ironic that we get to see the other end of that spectrum.
I also hear this is one way to attract new incoming students. Now that’s a truly Apple-inspired marketing campaign.
