RESPONSIVE INNOVATIVE COST-EFFECTIVE RESULTS ORIENTED Bring Your Own Device
RESPONSIVE INNOVATIVE COST-EFFECTIVE RESULTS ORIENTED Focus of the Presentation What is BYOD? How could it benefit my school? What are the challenges? What technology solutions are available? Next Steps Questions Sharing and Discussion
RESPONSIVE INNOVATIVE COST-EFFECTIVE RESULTS ORIENTED What is BYOD? BYOD stands for Bring Your Own Device It is also referred to as BYOT or Bring Your Own Technology The purpose is to allow students to bring their personal devices into your school and use them for educational purposes. A device can include laptops, mobile phones, smart phones, tablets, iPods, iPads, or any other mobile electronic device.
RESPONSIVE INNOVATIVE COST-EFFECTIVE RESULTS ORIENTED How could it benefit my school? It is a possible solution to outdated computers, such as end of life CFF equipment Allows for a greater number of students to have access to mobile devices Cloud based applications provide access from anywhere – extends the learning beyond the school day. Many are free. Office Gbs, Google Apps Increase student engagement
RESPONSIVE INNOVATIVE COST-EFFECTIVE RESULTS ORIENTED It is not necessarily a way to save money!
RESPONSIVE INNOVATIVE COST-EFFECTIVE RESULTS ORIENTED Why Not? BYOD requires added investment in infrastructure in order to allow personal devices to connect in a safe way. There will always be students who do not have the means to buy their own devices. The district needs to have a plan to provide equitable access.
RESPONSIVE INNOVATIVE COST-EFFECTIVE RESULTS ORIENTED What are the challenges? Students may use devices outside of classroom Students may use devices inappropriately Personal devices may bring viruses onto school network Supporting multiple platforms Supporting devices with outdated antivirus and OS updates No way to control 3G or 4G access on devices Schools have a responsibility to filter content (CIPA). Applies to any device on school network. Applies to any school owned device on or off the network. Schools have a responsibility to protect data (FERPA)
RESPONSIVE INNOVATIVE COST-EFFECTIVE RESULTS ORIENTED What are the solutions? Update policies and procedures Update to allow electronic devices on the network Policy should not allow use of wifi access (3G) and should indicate penalties Develop student guidelines Develop a parent permission form that protects teacher and school from lost/stolen equipment Teachers need to monitor student use especially with regard to wifi access. Implement a wireless network that supports BYOD inherently: Security & Management (ie. Meraki Wireless, Cisco*, Aruba*). * additional components required Implement a filtering device that can recognize any device that is on the network (ie. Meraki, Lightspeed, Barracuda, SonicWall) Implement Cloud Services to wrap solutions together - Stoneware
RESPONSIVE INNOVATIVE COST-EFFECTIVE RESULTS ORIENTED Wireless Networking Meraki is the first enterprise Wireless LAN that installs in 15 minutes - Plug and Play Installation - All Inclusive Features - Lifetime Warranty on APs - No on-site Controller Hardware - No Upgrades or Patches for Staff Complex Installation Feature Licenses Support and Maintenance Per-site Controller Hardware Dedicated Staff Access Points Traditional WLAN Vendors: Complexity + Hidden Costs Meraki: Simply Works
RESPONSIVE INNOVATIVE COST-EFFECTIVE RESULTS ORIENTED Complete Wireless Control User fingerprints Client location Application QoS Real-time control
RESPONSIVE INNOVATIVE COST-EFFECTIVE RESULTS ORIENTED School District Adoptions 500+ School Districts have deployed Meraki in last 12 months Majority have made multiple purchases 200+ NEW School Districts purchased in Q Local School District Customers PA: Upper Merion, Exeter, Purchase Line, Red Lion NY: Ithaca, Clarence Central, Newfield Central, Dryden Central CT: Bethel Public, Brookfield Public, Kingswood-Oxford, New Canaan Country, Newtown Notable School District Customers Alvin School District: 17,000 students, 20 schools, 800 APs Rainbow School District: 14,500 students, 48 schools, 200 APs
RESPONSIVE INNOVATIVE COST-EFFECTIVE RESULTS ORIENTED Local Success – Upper Merion S.D. HS: 1: 1 Program MS: 9 x Mobile Carts Elementary: 2 x Mobile Carts per building Mark Erb, Director of Technology: Speed of deployment 200+ Meraki APs deployed in under three days Reduce Annual Maintenance Costs from Operating Budget Improve efficiency of IT staff by delegating guest access Value added features at no additional costs. Improve mobile performance for teachers and students by shaping recreational traffic
RESPONSIVE INNOVATIVE COST-EFFECTIVE RESULTS ORIENTED Lightspeed Systems 1:1 Initiative Provide regular, consistent interaction with technology Encourage learning after school hours Provide consistent, fair access to technology for all students Allow students to utilize technology in a location/ time of their choice Give students greater access to learning resources Increase teacher student communication
RESPONSIVE INNOVATIVE COST-EFFECTIVE RESULTS ORIENTED The Need for Mobile Filtering To provide districts and students with the protection they need for 1:1 initiatives The Guide Mobile Filter extends your policies and protection Flexible filtering when computers are off the network. Whether your mobile users are part of a 1:1 initiative or staff bringing laptops on and off the network Enforce your Acceptable Use Policies
RESPONSIVE INNOVATIVE COST-EFFECTIVE RESULTS ORIENTED Lightspeed Systems – Big Campus
RESPONSIVE INNOVATIVE COST-EFFECTIVE RESULTS ORIENTED About Lightspeed Systems Lightspeed Systems Inc., founded in 1999, develops comprehensive network security and management solutions for the education market.

RESPONSIVE INNOVATIVE COST-EFFECTIVE RESULTS ORIENTED Founded in ,000 customers Over 5 million users Created the first web-based, IT delivery platform Cloud Services -
RESPONSIVE INNOVATIVE COST-EFFECTIVE RESULTS ORIENTED Problem: There is a New Reality Chaos Public Cloud (SaaS) Private Cloud (data center) Device Solution: Unified Delivery Applications, services, and resources are dispersed across device, data center, and the public cloud Public cloud, Private cloud, and Local Devices are managed independently Growing number of unmanaged devices (pads, slates, etc.) are making it problematic for IT to deliver services and control Difficult environment for the end user to understand and navigate Unified Delivery of all application and services across the public cloud, the private data center, and the local devices (pads, notebooks, smartphones, laptops, workstations, and desktops) Unified Management to provide a means for IT to manage all IT resources (public, private, and local), (windows, web, and hosted web) Unified Interface creates one common HTML5 web desktop accessible anywhere from any device Quote: Users gain their freedom from device and location while IT regains control
RESPONSIVE INNOVATIVE COST-EFFECTIVE RESULTS ORIENTED Transformation is Underway Organizations across all sectors are positioning themselves to benefit from a unified cloud computing Collapse corporate digital resources into the data center Lower deployment and desktop support costs Benefit from web scalability Leverage existing licensing on the device Strategy for incorporating tablets, slates, and pads Support remote users Moving toward an any device model BYOD, BYOT Zero Client Footprint
Next steps Identify educational goals Review district policies Needs to be a collaborative effort involving technology, curriculum, administration Identify teacher leaders Start with a small pilot project
