The Building Blocks to Your School's ICTInvesting time now to understand what infrastructure you will need for your short and long term plans could save you from unnecessary pain and costs - now and in the future.
A strong foundation for your school's digital Infrastructure
Considering a 1:1 learning environment?
Using more digital rich resources?
Considering moving your infrastructure to the cloud?
Want to get more out of your ICT?
If your answer to any of these questions is 'yes' then it's vital that your ICT infrastructure is capable of delivering your vision. Why is it so important? Well, If your wireless network can't provide instant and consistent bandwidth or your network doesn't support a variety of operating systems and devices then that vision is at risk.
Also the learning potential using rich, multimedia resources is infinite both inside and outside the school gates, but it will only work if you have sufficient, secure data management and if your infrastructure enables you to access and manage your network, applications and online services quickly and remotely. And how do you ensure that you are getting the most out of your ICT hardware and services?
It goes without saying that ICT is transforming our world and the potential for learning at a breath-taking pace. The drive for better results and lower costs means that educators are facing unparalleled challenges. Keeping your ICT running smoothly in the background is more important than ever. Therefore, it is worth investing the time now to understand what infrastructure you will need to put in place to support both your short and long term plans. It could save you from unnecessary pain and costs in the long run.
Flexible, scalable and future proofed
With this unprecedented amount of change in the way that technology is being used in schools, it's important to have an infrastructure solution that is reliable and flexible enough to support your changing needs. Infrastructure solutions can be complex depending on what you want to implement but it needn't be. We have spent time creating simple solutions that just work reliably in the background so that you can get on with more important matters.
5 things to consider...
- What are your aspirations? And what are your timescales?
- How much of your ICT do you want to manage within the school and how much do you want to have managed for you?
- How secure and reliable is the solution? What security measures are included to safeguard your infrastructure?
- What do you have now? It could make a difference to what solutions you will need to put in place and how much it will cost.
- What support do you need? Make sure that you can access training and support whenever you need them and at times that suit your school.
