Technology Infrastructure in Schools. Hot Topic.
SERVE: SouthEastern Regional Vision for Education.
This document is designed for education, government, and community leaders as they collaborate to provide information access for students by establishing a technology infrastructure within schools. Overviews of issues, appropriate questions to consider, and lists of recommendations seek to put the non-technology literate end-user, who might now be expected to make decisions relating to information technology, in a better position to do so. Topics include: (1) networking and connectivity; (2) the environment for the technology, including asbestos removal or abatement, lighting, acoustics, climate control, space, electrical connections, and security; (3) training, including general technology skills and integration of technology within the curriculum; (4) maintenance and technical support; (5) dealing with contracts, consultants, and vendors to obtain the needed technologies; (6) funding strategies; and (7) resources for further information.
