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.

 

The Gumdrop Drop Tech Case for iPad – 10 Pack

A school that offers iPads for student use has many challenges to overcome and at the top of the list is securing that expensive technology. As we’ve covered in our 1-1 iPad program guide, it’s important to make sure that your iPads have a sturdy, durable case. For students who will be using their iPads within and outside of the classroom, a rugged case can help ensure care of their iPads, as well as reduce instances of repairs and replacements, saving your technology department time and money. For a great case, the Gumdrop Drop Tech Case for iPad is a great option to consider.

Gumdrop is an American company that provides quality cases for smart phones, tablets, and laptops. Their Drop Tech line was made for rugged environments, and is commonly used in schools, worksites, hospitals, and more.

The cases in this 10-pack come with an integrated screen cover, protecting screens from cracks and scratches. This is an important part to the case, as cracked screens are some of the most common damages to iPads, and can be a costly repair. Paired with a snug, polycarbonate frame, the cover and frame also help prevent liquids from entering the case, keeping it safe from spills or accidental drops in water. This seal also helps make it easy for teachers to disinfect the iPads with a disinfectant spray or wipe.

The black silicone outer case that protects the entire iPad on all sides is made from a dual rubber material construction, which gives the case multiple layers for shock absorption. These added layers help protect the iPad by distributing the shock more evenly, which leads to the iPad itself untouched by the drop. In addition, the corners of the iPad have extra padding with reinforced rubber bumpers. Since the corners are the weakest spot for iPads and iPhones, they are the most vulnerable to cracks when dropped. The reinforced corners again redistributes the shock to keep the iPad from cracking. The silicone skin is also hand-rubbed with TUV oil for dust protection, yet retains its grip to stay on table tops. Overall, the rubber case also facilitates better grip, especially for children with smaller hands. Though the cases have a thick construction, their snug fit and relatively slim design will allow your iPads to fit most charging carts with the case on.

The case also has protective features for ports, buttons, and camera components. The port covers for charging and listening help keep dirt, water, and other types of debris from damaging these sensitive areas. In addition, the button covers help protect these parts from rough handling and touching, which can be important for younger kids. There is also a flash ring, to help protect the camera and flash.

Though the cases in this 10-pack do not come in different colors, you can easily add labels to the case of differentiation or to assign specific iPads to students. For color-coded cases, we recommend our Hamilton offerings.

Overall, these cases are a great investment for all K-12 classrooms, and can save you thousands of dollars in the long run. The Gumpdrop Drop Tech line is built to last, so assigning them to your iPads can mean a significant drop in repairs or maintenance. In addition, they will help lengthen the return on your iPad investment. To learn more about rugged cases for your technology, contact us. We can help you find the best cases for your school district or business today.

Steps for Setting Up a 1-to-1 iPad Program in Your School or District

Setting up a 1:1 iPad program at your school can expand the educational programs that your school provides, but involves a lot of preparation. From ordering the iPads and accessories, to establishing the a network that can support peak usage, to ensuring responsible usage, schools and districts have to consider a lot of factors before deployment day. Here’s our checklist for how to set up a 1-to-1 iPad program in your school or district for the smoothest deployment come distribution day.

Planning and Preparing for a 1:1 iPad Program

1.Make sure your networks are capable of handling the number of connected devices. Be prepared to order enough bandwidth for devices, especially during the first days of deployment. Those days are crucial, since students, educators, and administrators will be utilizing their iPad for various tasks. One of the biggest mistakes that districts make include not having enough bandwidth for all their devices connected at peak times, which leads to downtime and frustration. And for many schools that must request funding before changes are made to their bandwidth plans, requesting more money initially to cover a higher gig bandwidth plan is better than finding out later that you need more bandwidth and having to get additional budget approval. In addition, consider the expansion of WiFi coverage, and the ease of use and responsiveness of your WiFi provider.

2. Purchase protective cases. When considering what other accessories your iPad will need, protective cases and screen covers are a must. This is especially important for 1:1 iPad programs that allow students to take their devices home. By buying cases and installing them before deployment or the day of deployment, you’ll drastically reduce your need for repairs or replacements when placed in students’ hands. Lengthening the life of the devices will save your budget in the long term.

3. Prepare usage policies and tutorials for day of deployment. Many districts require that students and parents sign-off on user agreements and disclaimers. Have your teachers and staff ask these questions in order to develop these policies: What is considered inappropriate use of the device? What limits do students have when downloading online material or installing their own apps and customization? What security features should devices have? How much administrative control can teachers have? Having these policies in place, and their documents ready for the day of deployment, is important to clarifying the use and care of the devices.

In addition, it can be helpful to have instructional tutorials about using the iPad or particular programs that are downloaded on them for the students. Work with teachers and your IT team on organizing tutorials to teach students about their iPads and other necessary equipment. You should also consider providing information and training for the parents so that they can set up parental controls and learn how to monitor their child’s iPad use and school coursework progress.

4. Have a labeling system in mind. Identification will be important for keeping your iPads accounted for and organized. Some schools might benefit from utilizing barcodes, while others might find that removable labels placed on cases are more helpful for the classroom’s needs. Whatever you decide, make sure that you’ve detailed this process so that all your iPads will be accounted for under the same standards.

Day of Deployment and Onwards

When it comes to the day of assigning iPads, having a set timeline and area for deployment will allow for smooth assignment of the iPads. Create a game plan with teachers and iPad administrators to organize times and places for the iPads to be distributed.

If you did not pre-install and label iPads before deployment, the day of deployment is a good time to teach students and teachers how to put on a protective case and label them. An iPad safety and care tutorial would be a welcome time for case assignment to happen.

After each student and teacher has his or her iPad, the upcoming days are a an important time to monitor bandwidth usage, and also get feedback on the connectivity of your network. This can help you understand and anticipate for when you consider growth down the road.

Deploying a 1:1 iPad program at a school or district invovles a lot of planning and effort, but the trade off in educational and technological expansion pays off in the long run.

4 Tips On How To Choose a Case for Student Tablets

To protect your educational tablets, using cases is the best way to maintain your tech’s longevity in any type of classroom. But with many cases on the market, what would suit your students’ needs? And how can your cases be integrated in your classroom’s learning goals? Here we offer this simple guide on how to choose a case for student tablets.

1. Be mindful of your students’ age group. The first consideration to take when picking cases is the age group that will be using these tablets. GCA_Slider_LibraryScribeTouchNot only is age a good indicator for picking cases based on protection, but it can also help you pick a case suitable for the tablet’s use. For example, Gripcases are lightweight and soft, with its surrounding handle design providing a comfortable grip for children holding the tablet. In addition, these cases are washable and germ and mildew resistant, which help teachers maintain a clean classroom. Older students who might be using tablets for long periods of time might enjoy a case that can adjust to a comfortable typing angle.

2. Pick cases suitable for static or changing environments. Each classroom is unique in its setting: from a busy class of 5-year-olds to the quiet study hall for senior high school students, your case should be able to anticipate various accidents or mishaps. A rugged case like the Gripcase Scribe with screen protection, keyboard and stylus can be suitable for students who will be checking out their tablets and bringing them home, while a slimmer tablet case will provide adequate protection if the tablet lives solely in the classroom. By paying attention to the setting of your tablets, you’ll also be able to pick suitable cases.

3. Consider buying different-color cases for differentiated learning. Like headphones, you can color-code your classroom tablets by case color, to help with your differentiated learning system. We offer Gripcase and Hamilton cases for iPads in various colors, which can allow your color-coded system to stay the same. Ordering cases in various colors is especially helpful when different assignments, applications, or materials are on different tablets–having color cases will help these tablets easy to identify without needing to turn them on and go through the data.

4. Check if certain packages and accessories can be bought in tandem or are compatible with your cases. When buying a case, you should also be mindful of whether or not the case can be used with other accessories. If you already have docks and stands, it’s important to note the dimensions of the cases that change the size your tablets. Some cases might not be suitable for your current docking system or charging cart, so it’s therefore important to make sure each technical component of your set up is compatible with each other. Many of our stands and docks, like the BlueLounge Mika stand or Califone Bluetooth Peripheral Pack can universally fit various tablet sizes, which will allow you to choose any case without worrying about the compatibility of the accessories.

One way to reduce your research time on cases and accessories is to buy them in a set. For example, we offer the PARASYNC Bundle for iPad Air: the charging and synchronizing dock accommodates the protective cases that come with the bundle, giving you a great organizing system with added protection. The cases itself are made with shock-absorbing silicone and textured grip for added comfort, and come with a built-in stand capable of two different positions.

By following these tips, your classroom tablets will be protected in any environment or situation. For more help picking protective gear for your tablets suitable for your students, contact us. We can help you order the types of tablet cases suitable for your needs.
