6 Technology Capacity Are there adequate technology, networks, digital resources and support to meet a school's learning goals? Installed Base Facilities Connectivity Technical Support Client Orientation
Component 1 – Installed Base Schools must have an installed base of modern technology equipment to support learning, communication, and administrative goals of the education Component 2 – Facilities The facilities within the system are “technology- ready”
Technology Access Models Poor (10+:1) Moderate (6-8:1) Good (4:1) Very Good (1-2:1) Quality of Access (students per networked multimedia computer) Access Time Occasional Part Time Full Day 24x7 ALL: laptop for all 4:1 in all classes 8:1 in all classes 8:1 in some classes + labs 6:1 in most + keyboards Scattered access Target Access Basic Access
Trends In Washington Students have access to approximately 200,000 computers, or 1 computer for every 5 students. About 42% of these computers are considered “networkable”— purchased after 1994. Overall, there is about 1 networkable computer per 13 students, well above the ideal 1-to-5 ratio.
Component 3 – Connectivity Component 3 – Connectivity The connectivity in the school/district is adequate to support current and rapidly growing demands created by the learning, communication and administrative requirements of the education system
Trends In Washington 38% of the districts report having Internet access in all their classrooms. 6000 students are enrolled in the districts lacking Internet access. Today, all 296 public school districts have been wired to the state’s K20 Network (completed 12/99)
Component 4 – Technical Support There is adequate technical support to provide timely, expert troubleshooting, technical assistance, on-going maintenance, operation and upgrades
Component 5 – Client Orientation Clients’ technical needs are met with a high degree of satisfaction
Trends In Washington Innovative models from Snoqualmie Valley & Issaquah School Districts…. A typical business technical support professional supports 40 personal computers Even in the most well-funded school districts, a typical technician supports over 350 computers Only 14% of our districts can meet a down-time of two days or less for a classroom computer 30% of our districts have no official maintenance staff at all
