    Re: New Edugeek Users - Introduce yourself here :)

    Hello all!

    I'm an IT Technician for both a high school and recently a local primary as well. I joined the high school after being there as a student, then going to their college 'site' and then managed to get a job there. All in all I've been with them nearly 10 years

    I was at one point a single person IT dept at the school just after I joined as the rest of the IT staff left (maybe it was something I said???) but things have settled back to three of us there now.
    The primary is not part of the high school so that is my own little area there (I'm the whole IT dept there!)

    I found this place whilst trying to fix a problem with WSUS and our school proxies. Glad to see theres a place for all us school IT peeps to share ideas and storys

    @Limby, have you considered using Taitec Training Centre, there's one in Newcastle and Harrogate, i am training with them at the minute and they seem pretty good.

    Yeah they do, i did the distance learning thing with them, even though i just live a few miles away, but work weird hours (average of 6.30am til 9pm), but they do allow you to call into the centre (at weekends etc) to do on site sessions as well every now and then.

    All the best.

    Re: New Edugeek Users - Introduce yourself here :)

    Hi all

    Been a member for a few weeks and have only just realised I haven't introduced myself - how rude of me.

    I'm a network manager in a large (NOR1800) secondary school in Hampshire. Have been a technician in schools for 4 years, now made the step up to management.

    I am planning to merge our two physical networks (admin + curriculum) into one superdomain over the summer holidays, so most of my time will be spent asking questions and crying in the corner whilst waiting for the answers.

    Hello all. I am a computer technician in Thomaston, GA. I have been there for about 6 years now. I am responsible for 4 locations: My office is at North Elementary (4th - 5th grade), the Board of Education Office, Alternative School, and Pre-K. At north we have 4 computer labs, with an Activ Board in every classroom. We also have and Activ Board in ever classroom in our district. All our servers are located at the BOE office. Last year we migrated from a Windows NT network to a Windows 2003 AD Domain. I like it sooooo much better!!! Look forward to talking to you all!!

    Welcome to both CMD.exe and bjones ...

    Pull up a chair (a chair each ... sharing a chair across the ocean could be difficult), break open the Jolt Cola and share round the chocolate.

    That's interesting as I was talking to someone involved in ICT as a supplier and we were talking about usa and how it is behind in terms of technology used in education (due to us having government ring fenced ict funding for many years).

    He was saying stuff they were getting back from usa many were not going down route of ie boards in every classroom but the mobility options such as tablet pcs, graphics tablets etc etc.

    In your view is that true not true bit of both something in between?
