Apple ProductsToucan Computing: Apple Solution Expert for Education
iPads are becoming increasingly popular in education, opening up endless learning and teaching opportunities. More than 13 million iPads are in use in schools and other educational institutions across the world already, and that number rises daily.
So why are so many schools looking to iPads to support learning? Well, their ease of use is one thing, combined with their amazing interactivity and the ability for students and teachers to collaborate.
When you add that to the 75,000+ apps that are available to support education, you can see why it’s fast becoming a must-have classroom device.
In fact, there’s even more to the iPad than that. iBooks offers access to interactive books and almost any subject you can imagine, and iTunes U provides resources including course materials, lectures and videos from experts across the world.
Toucan Computing is an accredited Apple Solution Expert for Education, and since 1996 we’ve helped countless schools access the very best digital technology for education. We’d love to help you get the most out of your ICT – whether you already have iPads and would like to know how to do more with them, or you’re just starting to look into tablets and other devices to support your teachers and students.

Toucan is a great Mac company that we have been using since it started more than 20 years ago. Staff listen to your needs, treat you intelligently and provide great service. They're always prepared to go that extra mile. And, better still, they do it with a genuine smile.
Just a quick note to say thank you to Alex, who helped me this afternoon with expired tokens. He was super helpful. Great service from Toucan, as usual.
Our relationship with Toucan is always very professional. As a company their values match with ours. The apprenticeship scheme they offer is excellent and gives us ICT support whilst investing in a young person's future career prospects.
I have just got back from a very valuable morning at Heronsgate which has been immensely helpful. Thanks very much for facilitating this. Your advice is much appreciated.
Julian's training was excellent. Staff were really engaged and motivated. We'll book him again!
I'd love to thank you for all the support and help you provided during your visit on Wednesday.
Thank you Andrew; it’s a pleasure working with you. You’ve been friendly, supportive and always willing to find a solution for us. You’re a star!
Gareth did a fantastic job. We were both very impressed with what he did which has got us where we need to be with our iPads.
Can I just say a big thank you to Gareth for the work he undertook at this week and the assistance he gave to our engineer Antony. Antony had nothing but good words to say about Gareth, his professionalism, work ethic and ability to train on the job. Antony feels the install was a great success and is now much more confident in managing this solution for the school going forward.
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for your help with sorting out the iPads and setting them up. Gareth did a brilliant job with no fuss. I was really pleased and appreciated not being needed while teaching. I will be strongly recommending you to any other schools looking to get iPads.
I meant to email you today to say how happy I was with Andrew's support on Monday. Everything I asked for was possible and completed. There was no moan, no fuss, no impossible thing. Andrew made our training day successful and complete. His patience was tremendous.
Dear Andrew, I have finally made it to the end of the school year and with that I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for ALL the help and support that you have given me! I am always grateful for your time and sometimes feel I would be lost without you!!
