|“Touch Teach and Learn” - Apple Strategy Update
In 2009 HTMi established the first International Hotel School-based Research and Development Centre, setup to research and develop iPod Touch applications for hospitality education, training and operations. Since the establishment of the Centre we have embarked on a strategy of “Touch, Teach and Learn” so that the Apple iPod Touch technology becomes an everyday part of life, learning and teaching at HTMi. Following very high investment in software and hardware resources the benefits to students and teachers are starting to grow, with the emergence of HTMi Applications for use on Apple iPod Touch.
In 2010 HTMi recently sent a senior management delegation to the Education Leadership Conference 2010 in Prague organised by Apple, with the intention of sharing best practice of its technology uses in education. This conference enabled HTMi’s launch into the international community of education providers that use Apple technology to improve teaching and learning. A further major announcement on the development of the “Touch, Teach and Learn” strategy at HTMi will be made at the Marriott in Zurich in June 2010.
