[prMac.com] Melbourne, Australia - Specialist Apps today is pleased to announce Schools eLockers 1.2.1 free for iOS, an update to their education application that makes it easy for schools to share learning resources between teachers and students. Schools across the world are increasingly using mobile technology but many are finding that managing learning content on these devices can be a challenge.

"We're finding that School eLockers fills a really important gap for schools as they increasingly use mobile technology to support learning and teaching. I've spoken to so many teachers who love devices such as the iPad but are having difficulty getting content to and from their students' devices. We've made School eLockers simple and easy to use so teachers and students can just get on with it" explains Geoff Elwood, Founder of Specialist Apps.
