With many schools adopting 1:1 Chromebook or iPad programs for students, managing the charging, storage, security and transport of those devices has become a full-time job (and a headache for many school staff).

How to Incorporate New Technology: Address Wi-Fi First

New standards in education that expand and incorporate more technology are leading to a new educational environment. But before schools begin purchasing Chromebooks and iPads on a large scale, it is important for school administrators and IT professionals to address one of the most important components to a school-wide technical infrastructure: the Wi-Fi.

Wi-Fi networks are at the heart of working technology education devices. From allowing a Chromebook to save documents and access new materials properly to completing a cycle of syncing for your devices with a charge and sync cart, your Wi-Fi plays a significant role in ensuring quality use out of your devices. And with the Federal Communications Commission E-Rate application just starting for schools this season, Wi-Fi should be a top consideration for most public schools.

According to EdTech, 63% of schools will need to replace their Wi-Fi equipment due to their age, in order to meet the demands of increased device-use. Fortunately, federal funding is available for these schools that want to improve and upgrade their Wi-Fi networks and educational devices.

For IT decision-makers, the first step to a successful, connected classroom is to address the strength of your Wi-Fi network. Many schools forget to upgrade their Wi-Fi service, especially after purchasing new mobile devices or implementing a bring-your-own-device policy. And though E-rate applications make Wi-Fi more accessible, only a few applicants remember to account for the growth of their network when writing a budget.

When possible with your school or district’s budget, having fiber optic Internet connections will provide the fastest and most reliable service for a busy school. In addition, it allows for a stronger, safer network. For schools that are adjusting their current Wi-Fi networks, make sure that it can cover your typical bandwidth needs and not slow down during surge times, especially when classrooms rely on cloud-based applications.

Wi-Fi might also be key to IT offices when it comes to device management. For example, IT administrators will need a reliable Wi-Fi connection in order to manage tablets or Chromebooks through a sync-and-charge cart or hub. Or, if IT administrators opt for cloud management, a steady Wi-Fi connection 24/7 will ensure the best results for recovering, saving or installing new apps or data. Overall, a strong Wi-Fi service is beneficial beyond classroom instruction and education.

Modernizing the Wi-Fi connection is only one part of the puzzle, however. Outdated computers and devices can waste time with a lot of troubleshooting and increase the number of malfunctions during the school year. In addition, late-model devices will continue to save upgrades. As we’ve learned from recent announcements from Google on Chrome for old-model Macs and Twitter ending Tweetdeck for new Windows, there’s no guarantee that your devices will work with specific applications later in life. For a longer shelf life out of your technology inventory, it’s best to invest in a plan that slowly integrates late models into your existing inventory. This way, you can take advantage of new applications, stay on top of updates, and get the best longevity out of your current systems.

Our service can help you determine which technologies you should bring into the classroom and the accessories to support them. Whether you need sync and charge carts for all your devices, or a better system for storing and securing your mobile technologies, we can help you find the best solutions fit for your classroom. By having the right accessories and storage options, you can deploy new technology with ease and speed.

In addition, our products can allow you to take advantage of every feature your devices provide. Contact us today for your education technology needs.

This allows for classroom technological growth, especially as teachers and administrators become more comfortable and familiar with using their iPads in the classroom, and want to increase their use over time. In addition, it can save a classroom or business from downtime if there are problems with the wireless network, causing syncing from a cloud to stall: with the charge and sync cart, you can simply sync 16 iPads at a time by connecting a computer to the cart, and running the process from there.
