Apple, Gateway Offer Free Teacher Resources

Jaguar combines a UNIX-based foundation with Macintosh’s ease-of-use to create an operating system for teaching, learning and administration. Jaguar comes with free copies of Apple’s Digital Hub applications: iMovie, iPhoto and iTunes. Complete eligibility requirements are available online at
