Today’s students are accustomed to leveraging technology as part of their education. For in-class and at-home learning, many are leveraging 1-to-1 iPad programs. For many more, a computer lab is made available to offer access to educational materials.
Labs are a cost-effective and efficient way to ensure students have access to a computer with the apps they need to be successful, saving students and parents the cost of purchasing computer hardware and software. Labs ensure digital equity for students who would not otherwise be able to afford these luxuries.
And, many school computer labs are Mac labs. Mac has a longer shelf life than PC, countless educational apps and students simply prefer them.
In order to set students up for educational and professional success, K-12 schools need to equip students with secure technology and a customized experience when they sit down at any computer in the lab.
Today, most students in primary and secondary schools have never experienced life
without the internet or smartphones. This reality is reflected in the classroom where
digital learning processes and experiences are enhancing traditional textbooks and
upending conventional classroom teaching methods. Online lessons, testing and
assessments are now part of most curricula. Laptops, tablets and smartphones have
become primary instruction tools for students, who are downloading an increasing
number of online apps to enhance their digital learning experience.
Teachers and lecturers alike rely on robust, reliable Wi-Fi across their campus to
access the full range of teaching tools available to them.
Advanced technology in elementary, middle and high schools creates
new ways for students to learn, and changes how teachers plan
and deliver lessons. It also provides the digital tools for school
administrators to simplify operations, better comply with regulations,
and deliver a safer environment for students and teachers.
Is your K-12 network ready for the digital education innovations
of the future?
This guide provides school administrators and IT teams information
and strategies for designing efficient and cost-effective IT networks
that enable dynamic digital learning experiences. This secure, highperformance
platform supports administrative innovation for today
and into the future.
Overcoming the obstacles to deliver the modern learning demands of a smart campusFrom secure BYOD to robust WiFi and comprehensive video surveillance, the IT challenges schools face to ensure smart, safe campuses are not minor. This on-demand webinar details how schools like yours seamlessly integrated new technology on a budget.

The United States educational system is in the midst of transformational change due to widespread adoption of
technologies, including video, mobile devices, and cloud services. Given the enormous potential of these technologies to improve educational outcomes, increase access to information and collaboration, and reduce costs, schools and libraries across the nation want to do more, not less, with technology.
As education evolves, so does the way we teach and learn. This report focuses on one of the newest trends, still in its nascent
stages—mobile learning. It describes the potential benefits of mobile learning, addresses the challenges and opportunities that
introducing mobile learning presents, and provides examples from school districts that have already implemented mobile learning programs so we can learn from their best practices. The report also suggests key points to consider as you develop your plans, align your goals, and make decisions regarding mobile learning in your schools.
If you’re anything like your peers, you are evaluating your education technology on an annual basis to determine if it’s time for a refresh. While most schools conduct their device refreshes during the summer because teachers, staff and students are not present, this timing can prove costly as the market is flooded with devices from schools doing the same thing.
To help school districts re-think their technology spending to focus more on total cost of ownership and residual value, as opposed to upfront cost, we’ve partnered with Diamond Assets — a technology buyback company — to explain:
• The true value and cost of iPad and Chromebook in education
• When schools receive the most trade-in value for their technology
• How to prepare for and execute technology refreshes
Through a collaborative, groundbreaking study with three prominent U.S. business schools, Senn Delaney has discovered that people who operate from a unique set of three core principles consistently perform at the top 10 percent of performance ratings. The joint study and subsequent research and surveys led to creation of our new, evidence-based, practical performance model that can be taught, practiced, reinforced, applied and measured.

As schools look to blended learning as a solution to personalize and positively impact student achievement, the need to train and support teachers has become blatantly clear. Thus, districts and schools have allocated scarce resources to the process of onboarding and supporting teachers as new tools and platforms are introduced. However, school leaders and teachers often fail to recognize the need to similarly onboard and support students into new digital environments, instead trusting the inherent technological competencies of the “digital native” student.

Protect the network, use the network to protect students
Your schools use a growing amount of networked information and devices as an essential part of teaching and administration. Research on the Internet, laptops in class, distance learning, and online homework are some of the official technologies that your students use.
Unofficially, this list extends to mobile phones (with cameras), digital music and video players, blogs, instant messaging, social networking sites, and networked or online gaming. Behind the scenes are databases with student information, class schedules, attendance records, copies of exams and answers, financial transactions, and even video surveillance. All of these rely on a robust and secure network infrastructure.
