  3. Data Protection and Safe Harbor

    by , 5th June 2014 at 11:47 AM
    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 ...

    by , 12th May 2014 at 12:35 PM

    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 ...
  10. Why all Primary Schools should have a Wireless Network

    by , 7th May 2014 at 01:08 PM


    “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
