11 This is where Jim would take over

12 Technically, what we are trying to accomplish? How to build an environment to specifically support one-to-one mobile computing in a DDN connected School.

13 Year 1 Pilot Program Lessons Bandwidth WebCT Classroom Management software Disk storage Wireless Lightweight Architecture Technology Committee / Policies Off Site Content Filtering

14 Laptops and/or Tablets Students: Laptops or Tablets Teachers: Tablets? (School choice) Purchase or 3 year lease (manufacturer or local) 3 year warranty – accidental coverage Software Microsoft Windows Office - Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher Altiris Symantec Client Security SynchronEyes classroom management software State contract

15 Server Microsoft server 2003 Security, quotas, off-line file synchronization Image management Altiris Security management Symantec Client Security RADIUS server Used for Wireless Security SynchronEyes classroom management

16 Desktop Management Must work smarter! Philosophy: Computer is an educational tool – not a personal device Local control & management Desktop Support Ratio Technology & Procedures tools to aid in management: Acceptable Use Policies Active Directory policies Altiris Symantec Advanced computer support skills required

17 Build it right the 1 st time! State contract 5GHz 54 Mbps shared (not switched) Local Area Network based on switched architecture No hubs Lightweight Architecture / Centralized management RADIUS authentication - Certificate on the Domain Controller Performance Expectations Enterprise level encryption Buy expertise/services if necessary Integration with existing wireless could be a problem if not properly planned. Wireless Networking


19 Training DDN IT: June 4 – June 15 Dakota State University Classroom Connections Advanced active directory policies RADIUS – Certificate security Altiris Virtual server Windows Software Update Service (WSUS) Symantec Client Security Wireless configuration (Controller & Desktop) Help Desk management will be discussed SynchronEyes

20 Support: Eyes Wide Open Additional Support FTE Technical support Improved Desktop & network skills Standards-based infrastructure Parts center – repairs Extra battery station Simple is better than complicated Centralize management where possible

21 Other Considerations Orientation Projectors Start small – goal perspective Student fees Policies & penalties Electrical outlets & power strips Equipment racks Storage

22 Application areas to be addressed Demonstrate the means to meet the $2 to $1 matching funds (district $2 / state matches $1) Demonstrate action steps necessary to implement professional development of staff and students Demonstrate a technology plan including support services Demonstrate how the program will impact instruction of students Demonstrate commitment from school board and effort to involve community
