Gallaudet University in Washington, DC was recently awarded “Distinguished School” status by Apple.
Apple assigned the title to Gallaudet University, which will run from this year until 2025. The reason for the commendation was the school’s dedication to teaching ASL, or American Sign Language. Gallaudet and Apple have a history of working together, including extensive use of the company’s software and hardware for its students and educators.
The “Apple Distinguished School” designation deserves recognition and usually means that the university has used Apple technology for academic achievement. The Cupertino-based company has also awarded the university’s K-12 program “Distinguished School” status for the same reason.
Cook recently gave the launch address at Gallaudet University, saying that technology should not be the focus, but a tool to help people. Apple’s CEO advised the young graduates to “lead with their values.”
Gallaudet University is a private school for the deaf and hard of hearing located in Washington, DC.
