“Apple Mac OS X Leopard: Pushing the Boundaries of Connected Learning”.

Stephen King is the National Development Executive K-12 Education for Apple Australia.

Mac OS X is the world’s most advanced operating system, delivering the power, stability and security of Unix along with unprecedented simplicity and ease. This Spotlight will introduce to you Mac OS X version 10.5 Leopard.

Leopard has more than 300 new features, including a new desktop; a new way to organise files; an updated Finder featuring a new way to browse and share files between Macs; a new way to preview most files without opening an application; and Time Machine, a new way to back up and restore lost files or a complete Mac.

Leopard Server has more than 250 new features making it the biggest improvement since Mac OS X Server was launched. New features include a wiki server, making it easy to connect groups over a shared intranet; Podcast Producer, to make and publish podcasts to iTunes or a blog; and Spotlight Server to find content stored on other servers. Leopard Server includes the new iCal Server, based on the CaIDAV open standard, which works with Leopard’s new iCal application.

Connect your kids to the world. Really connect them. With each other, with you, their parents, the community and the rest of the world. Mac OS X Leopard will deliver the latest technologies for connecting kids through the creation and use of podcasts, blogs, wikis and the web. Weave a weekly podcast production into your classes and suddenly writing, research, public speaking, literacy, investigation and collaboration have a shared focus that your students will love.
