Canadian teachers take note: Apple has added Canada to its program to give free copies of Jaguar to teachers. Apple launched such a program in the US earlier this month, and many Observers from other parts of the world have been asking if other countries will be included. Yesterday, Apple Canadais Web site added a page offering the program to Canadian teachers. From that Web page:
Apple wants to provide every K-12 teacher in Canada with a free copy of Mac OS X v10.2 "Jaguar." This program is designed to show teachers the stability and manageability of Mac OS X and how it gives them a powerful foundation for integrating technology into their classrooms.
From now through December 31, 2002, qualifying K-12 teachers can order their free "X for Teachers Kit," which provides everything a teacher needs to learn and become comfortable with Mac OS X including:
- Getting Started with Mac OS X Training CD filled with practice exercises, tips, and over 80 QuickTime movies
- Mac OS X v10.2 (Jaguar) Install CD Set
- Telephone support for 90 days
- Manual and License Agreement
Do I qualify?
