Miami and Apple prepare for digital ribbon cutting


OXFORD, Ohio -- Miami's Partners in Learning program is teaming up with

Apple Computer Inc. to unveil the Miami University/Partners in Learning

Interchange Web site.

The site, essentially a virtual curriculum database, will feature forums,

resources, ongoing projects, e-mail and chat areas as well as links to the

Apple Learning Interchange, said Douglas M. Brooks, director of Partners in

Learning and professor of teacher education.

Miami students will be able to create units of curriculum and post them for a

national audience, Brooks said.

"Miami is the first university in the country to develop an associated, but

independent Apple Learning Interchange Web site," Brooks said. "Events like

this give the Miami community an opportunity to demonstrate our cutting edge

role in bringing the best of the information age to our students and faculty,

and renewing professional education."

Representatives from Apple, the Alliance for Classroom Technology and the

Office of Information Learning and Technology Services, as well as Miami's

School of Education and Allied Professions will participate in a virtual ribbon

cutting ceremony for the new site from 10-11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 14, in 378

McGuffey Hall.
