 APPLE ANNOUNCES NEW TECHNOLOGIES,
 TOOLS FOR SCHOOLS AND EDUCATORS AT NECC '92
 DALLAS, June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Teachers, computer coordinators and school administrators attending the National Educational Computing Conference (NECC) got their first look at a host of new educational technologies from Apple Computer Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) aimed at providing a more powerful learning experience for students.
 In keeping with its efforts to provide schools and educators with learning tools that take full advantage of today's multimedia technologies, Apple today announced Apple Macintosh computer based tools and products that:
 -- help schools and businesses build effective partnerships;
 -- provide a comprehensive language arts curriculum for K-2 students;
 -- give math and science teachers integrated curriculum software solutions and demonstrations on a CD-ROM reference disk;
 -- utilize QuickTime technology to enhance the curriculum and technology integration planning process.
 According to Randy Pennington, director of K-12 Education Marketing, the new products and tools represent the company's commitment to provide teachers and administrators with technology-based solutions for language arts, math/science, and curriculum planning, as well as a step-by-step planning tool for building long-term partnerships with businesses.
 "We believe these tools and technologies will not only make a real difference in the learning process," said Pennington, "they will also empower our customers with the information and resources they need to foster education reform in their communities."
 The products and tools featured in booth No. 214 by Apple include:
 -- The Apple Education/Business Partnership Program, which encourages long-term alliances between schools and businesses and offers special bundles of hardware, software and materials;
 -- The QuickTime version of Apple's award-winning Teaching, Learning & Technology: A Planning Guide, a Macintosh-based tool for curriculum planning;
