Five Things Educators Should Know About IT


New York, NY (PRWEB) July 16, 2013

Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (http://www.us.logicalis.com) has been tracking some significant changes in the ways K12 school districts are using technology to meet the expectations of educators and parents, and prepare students for life in a connected world. K12 technology leaders, Logicalis says, are investing in enabling their schools adoption of Common Core Standards and preparing for the student assessments that will measure their progress and success in implementing these standards. The U.S. government recently called on the FCC to supply broadband internet to 99 percent of schools in the U.S. in five years. The government also called on the FCC to modernize a 1990s-era assistance program called E-Rate which provides funding for broadband, networking and communications technology in schools. As these expansions and reforms take shape, they promise a windfall of technology funding for schools that are positioned to receive them.

The states adoption of the Common Core Standards is an historic and unprecedented collaboration of K12 education experts across the country to standardize and raise the level of education in the United States. Common Cores goal is to produce students who are better critical thinkers, better prepared for college and able to compete with students on a global stage, says Chris Rafter, Senior Vice President and Regional Manager, Logicalis US, Public Sector. Every teacher and administrator I speak with points to one thing they love about Common Core: It promotes great teaching practices. Everyone remembers that one teacher they had in school who just understood them and made them want to learn. Common Core is about taking what those best teachers do and have it become the norm for entire districts, entire states.

As states implement Common Core and technology initiatives like one-device-per-student and BYOD [Bring Your Own Device], the next five years are going to be among the most impactful in the history of public education in the United States, Rafter says. There will be massive improvements in network speeds and bandwidth, as well as switching, cabling, Wi-Fi and Cloud Computing requirements that will weigh heavily on the IT professionals within public school districts responsible for planning, financing and implementing the needed technology solutions.

As an expert provider of technology solutions for K12 institutions in the U.S, Logicalis has assembled its best tips for K12 leaders to show them where to start and what questions to ask along the way. These topics provide a starting point which will lead to much broader and deeper discussions about the myriad ways technology is used in schools, and the ways experienced technical solution providers like Logicalis can help schools meet these requirements, exceed their own technological goals, and do it all within their specified budget.

If theres one thing K12 technology leaders know after the last several years, its how to operate on a shrinking budget, how to do more with less. Now with some hope of investment finally on the horizon, the emphasis is rapidly shifting toward effectiveness and delivering results, Rafter says.
