Impact of Technology on School Facility Design.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Div. of School Planning.
This publication offers aid for North Carolina schools in planning new and renovated facilities to accommodate technology. It is a supplement to the North Carolina Public School Facilities Guidelines and should be used in conjunction with the STS-1000 Telecommunications Wiring Guidelines and the North Carolina School Technology Plan and other materials listed in "References for Further Reading" at the end of the publication. The emphasis of the STS-1000 is on network infrastructure, and the emphasis of the North Carolina Instructional Technology Plan is on the use of technology in schools and the specific equipment to support those uses. The material presented in this publication has different emphasis--that of building needs to accommodate this technology equipment. The publication addresses: space, electrical, and cooling requirements for personal computers; computer and keyboarding labs; media centers; special use, computer aided design and drawing (CADD), graphics, and vocational labs; distance learning and information highway labs; administration areas; other uses of technology in schools; network wiring systems; head-end and file server rooms; and distributed wiring closets.
