In this episode, we are going to depart from our standard Mac Minutes podcast program format and interview people who have interesting uses for Apple technology.  Our guest in this first episode of the series is Technology Director, Mr. Jim Dube, from Lake and Peninsula School District, in remote “Bush Alaska”.  He also provides technology support to the Bristol Bay School District, where he was a K-12 principal for several years.  Jim discusses the Apple devices he employs in the districts and the software he uses to manage the devices.  Additionally, he also gives his insight on the challenges of keeping networks and associated technology working far from commercial sources and technical support.
