Technology Refresh: Five Steps to Upgrading Your District's IT Assets
Meserve, Susie
Technology & Learning, v26 n7 p26 Feb 2006
While most K-12 technology leaders appreciate that technology refresh--the periodic replacement of an organization's technology--is more complex than shopping for appliances, they do not necessarily have the tools to create a sustainable and comprehensive plan to upgrade their assets. Having a solid tech refresh plan helps ensure that teachers and students have the most current technology available, while making the process of replacing it seamless and cost-efficient. This article presents five things to consider when crafting a technology refresh plan: (1) have an accurate inventory of existing technology; (2) target critical areas; (3) be resourceful--take advantage of free tech support classes and consultants; (4) leverage your existing technology; and (5) reduce, reuse, and recycle.
