Gearing up for the school year, Apple has just launched a newly redesigned “Apple and Education” page on its website, featuring a simplified design and fresh categories showing how iPhones, iPads and Macs can make a difference in the classroom.

Each new section of the “Apple and Education” site is aimed at offering resources for teachers and parents about how Apple products can help them educate children.

In the iPad section, Apple shares information on how you can use apps for lesson planning. In the Special Education section, Apple shows how all of the accessibility options built into iOS and OS X can make a difference to special needs students. The Mac section primarily highlights iLife, iWork and the Mac App Store, while the Real Stories portion of the site profiles schools and teachers that have successfully incorporated iDevices and Macs into their classrooms.

At the head of the new “Apple and Education” page, Apple passionately argues for the importance of technology in the classroom, saying:

We believe that technology has the power to transform the classroom. It can pave new ways of thinking. New ways of sparking ideas. Yet the foundation never changes: A dedication to learning that’s always been part of our DNA. We’ve been proud to work alongside educators and students to reinvent what it means to teach and learn. And together we’re going things we never thought possible.

Well said.
