Inspired by the quotes below it is the intention of AusMacEd to bring attention to the good work being done by Australian Educators using Macintosh computers and Apple iPods. The goal of this website is to demonstrate that freedom to choose ICTs and device platforms results in the highest possible educational outcomes of their students.
