here is my VoiceThread script:

MacBooks in Education

1. Mac books in Education.
2. Mac Books can be used in many different subjects, such as
3. Science,
4. Humanities
5. Math
6. English
7. Information Technology
8. And Design Technology
9. MacBooks can also be used for making Digital Yearbooks. This would save lots of trees, and would encourage people to send it to their friends, and family. This is harder to do when you have a textbook around, instead of on a macbook.
10. Writing and editing essays for English class would be a lot easier, as the students can take their macbook to the library, their home, and school. Unlike papers all over the place, the teacher would have it saved on their macbook. Therefore, it’ be easier for students to hand in their work.
11. Teachers also have a say in education, thanks to the Apple Classroom Management Solution, which enables a teacher to observe student activity on an unlimited number of computers. When students need assistance, you can take control of their screens to redirect their efforts. Similarly, you can choose one student's screen and share it with others in the class. Text messaging enables you to interact with individual students or groups to ask and answer questions and provide assistance without disrupting other students. With a drag-and-click simplicity, you can transfer assignments and handouts to any or all of the computers of the class!
12. Sometimes, students may want to go on sites that they shouldn’t. That’s why MacBooks have a special learning blocker and virus protector for schools! With this, everybody is in the right site.
13. Thank you for listening, and I hope I convinced you that MacBooks are good technology to be used in schools and especially in Qatar Academy.
