NOTE: This game is still in beta!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
Apart from that enjoy the game!
I'm a big fan of cloud services. They provide universal access to powerful software at little cost to the school, and they're convenient for both students and teachers. But data protection is a big issue to get your head around, and many schools either struggle to understand the implications of storing data online, or simply never address the issue.
I've worked with schools that have dived in head first and never considered where or how their data is being stored, and also the opposite
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. Schools and colleges are benefiting from providing well connected multimedia rich environments and interactivity that can be used across all subject areas. An interactive projector provides an option that integrates the interactivity of a whiteboard into a projector, you could think of it as a virtual whiteboard.

Been a bit of a break, sorry - some bugger keeps putting exams on in school, the cheek of it - but I've made time again today, so have a tip: ICT Tip 068 - Forcing webpages to reload.doc
Lots of people keep asking me what the transparent proxy forwarder in onBoarder is and how does it work. I thought I would write a post to try to explain what it is and how it can benefit a school or business with an upstream proxy.
Having been involved in deploying BYOD systems for some time now, the biggest frustration for us has been upstream proxy. The main problems we have encountered have been managing user device configuration and faults in guest and BYOD web redirection
Wireless has, for the most part, been the bane of my existence as a Network Manager. It's flaky, it's unreliable and it can ruin your otherwise lovely day. Combined with some odd behaviour with Windows 7 and domains, student logins tend to be a bit of a lottery, with around a 1% chance of getting an error "there are no logon servers available..." and another 1% chance of logging in fine, but having no My Documents or Start Menu as they haven't mapped properly
“Wireless networking works well in all schools and can help deliver major educational benefits.” Now that may be a sweeping statement but i believe it is a powerful truth. A carefully planned wireless network will allow more children to benefit from ICT learning. It also gives teachers the freedom to incorporate ICT into more subjects and the flexibility to use more areas of the school for a wider range of purposes. Which is no bad thing considering the pressure
