One of the driving factors behind our continued development and improvement of Art Authority is the passion we have for making a difference in education.  When Apple announced it would be holding a press event with an educational theme, we eagerly awaited to see what Apple and the late Steve Jobs had created to “disrupt the textbook.”  

One of the quotes from the event we really identified with:

There’s a lot that is talked about that may be wrong with education. One thing we hear louder than all else, and where we can help, is in student engagement.

Apple announced iBooks 2, iBooks Author, and some major advancements for iTunesU. You can watch the full video of the event here

And to our surprise and delight, Art Authority was highlighted by senior VP Phil Schiller on stage as one of seven “amazing” iPad educational apps.

Speaking of the intersection between education, liberal arts, and technology, we are gearing up to make some of our own announcements here at the Moscone Center for MacWorld/iWorld 2012. Stay tuned.
