Macs in the classroom

macs in the classroom

You may recall the figure released last week by a research analyst saying that 70% of incoming college Freshmen use Macs, well, at some schools it’s already higher than that. Take this classroom at BCIT, where out of 17 computers in the classroom, 16 are Macs.

I’m not sure what the class is, and obviously certain majors could skew the Mac to PC ratio, but this image really captures the trend of Apple dominating in higher education. These pictures were taken by visiting lecturer Tod Maffin, who says he noticed “a lot of glowing white Apple logos staring back” and then asked the students to hold up their computers to take a picture.

    As the teacher of said class: all of the full time of the New Media and Web Development students (3/4 of that class) buy macs as part of their program.
