Tips from the Bottom Line: A T&L Columnist Shares ROI Highlights from the Past Year
Brooks-Young, Susan
Technology & Learning, v26 n12 p24 Jul 2006
Ongoing technical support is often under-funded in district budgets. Most rail far short of the Consortium for School Networking's (CoSN) recommended ratio of one technician for every 50 to 70 computers, or one technician for every 500 computers in a closely managed networked environment. Add to this the fact that teachers' needs for instructional support are as important for successful technology implementation as a reliable infrastructure, and many districts find that overall technical support costs are much higher than they budgeted. Districts must recognize the need to focus more attention on repurposing existing funds to pay for technical support, reducing dependence on grants and other types of short-term funding. In this article, the author shares some tips and successful strategies being used by districts across the nation.
