How to build an ICT suite
Cablers Network & AV Solutions have been providing education technology solutions to schools in the South East for many years and we have developed a few skills that many of our competitors do not come close to matching.

I have tested mapping shares with Profiles and determined that it wasn't 100% reliable, and not as powerful as I liked. I decided to use an AppleScript to map the network shares, which is saved as an app with a nice icon and run at login.

Promethean provide some great options with their interactive whiteboards
The other prevalent interactive white board Cablers supply to schools are from Promethean who have also refreshed their range recently. (You can read my first post about Interactive Whiteboards here.)
With the vast array of multimedia options available for the classroom these days it is easy to get a bit lost or confused. By the time you reach the end of this article i hope you will be a little more informed which will make your future buying decisions a little easier.
I will start with Smart Boards, they have been around for the longest time and in our experience seem to be the most popular multimedia addition to a classroom. They come bundled with the fantastic SMART Notebook Advantage collaborative learning software.

Why Get Interactive Projectors? Modern teaching practices rely increasingly on digital media to get results and keep learners engaged.
