Get Wired: Designing Your School Network [videotape].
Northwest Educational Technology Consortium, Portland, OR.
This videotape records a two-hour live teleconference that had over 500 participants and was broadcast on May 8, 1996. The hosts, experienced school network designers, provide examples of school networks, address network design features, and discuss planning considerations that face educators needing to make intelligent decisions about constantly evolving technologies. Technology coordinators, technology committee members, school board members, administrators and teachers have found the program useful for designing school networks that meet teaching, learning and administrative needs. The teleconference included footage of three Northwest school districts with different network stories: (1) Juneau, Alaska--a fully operating local area network (LAN) in each of eight campuses and a wide area network linking the district; (2) Butte, Montana--a LAN in one middle school, and drafting specifications and seeking funding to network each school and the district; (3) Montesano, Washington--an operating LAN in the junior/senior high school and the wiring of the second elementary school.
