Technology is giving educators access to multimedia content, online courses and material that enhances classroom instruction to improve all learning opportunities. While great for students and teachers, it presents a real IT challenge. It’s because the technical requirements of today’s connected classrooms are changing rapidly, and schools are continually playing technological catch up.
Just a few years ago, the challenge was to get a computer into the hands of every student. Today, that challenge also includes a struggle with provisioning and managing mobile devices and delivering sufficient wireless bandwidth.
As the network infrastructure at many schools continues to age, it becomes harder to accommodate the increasing demands of the connected classroom. IT managers must address demands for greater IT security, access monitoring and nearly limitless wireless bandwidth, while supporting the new connected classroom strategies, which include social media, multimedia, streaming video, flipped learning and gamification.
We understand the technological needs of today’s school systems. In fact, we have helped numerous educational institutions and school systems to first understand their current connectivity demands and then assess their enterprise infrastructure in order to identify new strategies that could be developed to meet the evolving connected classroom demands — without breaking the budget.
