Mac OS: Windows Bootcamp



Lately I have been spending a lot of time working with Boot Camp on MacBooks. Boot Camp comes free with any MacBook and allows you to install Windows OS on your MacBook (provided you have a full genuine copy of Windows). You can then choose to boot your MacBook with either MacOS or Windows OS. However, you can only run one or the other.

With MacOS Sierra, Apple is recommending Windows 10 with Boot Camp. Just recently I was still able to install Windows 7 Pro 64-Bit on a MacBook Pro (2012). This can be useful for applications that are not available for Mac or for legacy software support. For example, a teacher wants to allow students to get certified in Microsoft Office, however the testing apps are only available for Windows.

An alternative to Boot Camp could be to run Windows via Virtual Box. However, your system should have at least 8GB of RAM to accomplish this. I personally recommend a minimum of 16GB of RAM, as your computer will be running 2 computers at once (your Mac and your Windows).

Re: Inside the School Where Every Student Gets Their Own Teacher

Olivia is currently enrolled part-time in one of the most unique high school models in the country. Where many schools struggle with ever-expanding student-teacher ratios, Futures Academy, a California network of private schools serving middle- and high schoolers, follows a distinctly personalized model: Every class in every subject has one teacher and only one student. The model takes an eyebrow-raising twist on one-to-one instruction, which in many education circles has come to refer to one computer for every student.

This sounds like a discussion I have had many times with other educators when talking about school models and how to improve schools. "What if every student had their own teacher?" It is an intriguing idea that, on the surface, sounds like the ideal learning environment. However, most times I have discussed this, the conversation usually ends up saying that sma…
