From the supplier: The Shoreline School District, Seattle, set and achieved the goal of providing every one of the district’s approximately 600 teachers with access to an information machine. The project, “Apple for the Teacher”, gave teachers the choice between a Macintosh SE or an Apple IIgs as a personal productivity machine. This decision was made in agreement with the district’s belief that empowering individuals is an important goal of education. The teachers selected 550 Macs and 50 Apple IIgs’s. The machines are owned, insured, and maintained by the district, but the teacher may use the machine at home, in the classroom, or wherever the teacher wants. The Macs have Microsoft Works as the main package; they also have HyperCard. The Apple IIgs’s have AppleWorks GS. Training began with assimilation. The project is judged to be very successful.
