    sure it wasn't ICT "bullying" and not "buying"? what with all the teachers coming from the woodwork here recently

    Re: We are famous.

    I didn't think it was all about being 'famous' - I thought the site was about sharing ideas and helping others with advice and knowledge through ICT in schools..............

    Point is we get new members when we get mentioned in article like tes articles that is why we do it not to be famous but so more people know about the site.

    I was just letting members know that edugeek get mentioned somewhere...

    Grats guys, we appreciate all you do for us.
    You've certainly helped me out with legalities alone, let alone all the other technical aspects.

    May Edugeek.net become as popular as Google

    Re: We are famous.

    She didn't mention edugeek's name as just seen artiicle but we do have me and one member quoted in it.

    Steve moss was quoted but think he may of misunderstood where article was coming from as see reporter was trying to do light hearted spin on serious matter and Steve picked upon the fact that she was saying technicians needed space to work but main issue was the fact that lack of ict suites in classrooms.

    Anyway here is article.


    IT staff come out of the closet into the world of wi fi

    Irena Barker
    Published: 12 October 2007

    SCHOOL IT technicians are used to emerging from pokey workshops in converted cupboards to tinker with broken printers. But they now fear they may lose even this meagre space as ICT rooms are left out of plans for new schools altogether.

    The Building Schools for the Future programme advises schools to ditch traditional computer suites in favour of wireless technology, laptops and portable tablet PCs.

    Zbysiu Rodak, a technician at a Manchester secondary, predicts in-house technicians will disappear entirely. In future, an anonymous central pool could serve a large number of schools.

    At the Djanogly Academy in Nottingham, one of the first schools to abolish IT suites, technicians have been given an underground "den" to work from. A team of six technicians are constantly on the move maintaining around 1,300 desktop, laptop and tablet PCs.

    A visitor to the school commented: "I didn't like the way the techies were kept in two dark, windowless rooms below ground, almost as an afterthought."

    But Sanjesh Sharma, assistant principal in charge of ICT at Djanogly, said the basement space had been planned from the start. "It's much better than the room they have under the building in The IT Crowd" (the Channel 4 sitcom), he said. "It's air-conditioned, staff are near the servers and the equipment is safe from theft."

    Another technician said he had to fight "tooth and nail" for adequate space for staff and computer suites as his BSF pathfinder school was being designed.

    Russell Dyas, a network manager at a secondary school in Leicestershire, said the needs of IT staff were usually considered at the end of the design stages. "Space for support staff should be considered at the beginning along with the basics such as electrics and plumbing," he said.

    Steve Moss, strategic director of ICT at Partnerships for Schools, which oversees BSF, said the move away from computer suites was inevitable if schools wanted to embed technology into all areas of the curriculum. "We have to ask if we are designing schools where the facilities are for the students or to make the lives of technicians easier."

    He said the organisation was consulting technicians' representatives to ensure their voices were heard.

    They should have got a better person to do the job then. running water/heating pipes above the server room was a great idea! don't these people realise the data held in these rooms are insanely important?!?!?!

    "We have to ask if we are designing schools where the facilities are for the students or to make the lives of technicians easier."
    Designing the building(s) with everyone in mind is surely going to get the best results?

    That article doesn't seem to know whether it's coming or going and can't decide which topic to focus on. Typical TES. Or Steve Moss hasn't got a clue.
