    Howdy,

    Most people call me Rowan and I am the IT Coordinator at a small secondary College in Australia. Came across this site while googling for related info and looks like I will be coming back here a lot.

    Thanks to all for the info contained and look forward to when I can offer help back.

    Cheers
    Rowan

    Hello From Computer Products Ltd

    Hi Guy's

    Simon collins here from CP ltd,

    I came acrosss this forum with great interest as being an accredited Microsoft Educational Reseller we supply schools with IT equipment and software,
    After working in IT for nearly 15 years now I believe I can still learn more from forums like this for two reasons, bettering my knowledge in IT and to learn from your experiences where we as a company may be failing,
    I also am intersted in the school IT curriculum as I have a eight year old daughter who is passionate about computing, I suppose that comes from her geek of a father,
    Be aware I am not here to pitch for business but if I can help in any way regarding the sourcing of any particular item I'm only a pm away.

    Best Wishes

    Hi All
    My name is Phil. I dont work in a school but in general offer advice and help to schools nationwide on all sorts of new technology of which most schools dont know is out there. I also go into schools and try to solve problems. I originally spent 13years in a Sony Centre.To cut the story short we received an order from a school. When i went into the school i noticed a few installs and was horrified by the workmanship. The more schools i visited the more i noticed so hence decided to do what i am now doing by helping schools get a decent service.
    I also enjoy music and a beer or two

    Phil

    Hello all

    I have been in the IT business for too many years, computers had thatched roofs when I started, mostly in the DEC world, later IBM mainframes, when men where men and computers need aircon etc.

    As the years roll by, hardware gets smaller and software gets more difficult to understand, let alone what goes wrong between operating system and mere utilty applications.

    So I seem to know less and less about more and more these days, so I hope
    to gain some help from your community and will be happy to share my knowledge with others.

    Regards

    Ron

    Hey all,

    I'm currently a primary / secondary school tech, i've been in IT for a couple of years now and i'm currently trying to get certs to improve my knowledge and hopefully start climbing up the ladder. The moneys not that great but i'm enjoying working in the IT field within education a lot more than my previous jobs!

    I've already been lurking around on these forums for some time (ever since my previous Network Manager pointed it out to me), and i figured it's about time i started posting too. It looks to be a nice resource and a great community here

    Not so good at introductions, but basically I just happened across here a while ago and while I'm not actually in educational IT I thought I might stay a while.

    Welcome. I presume you have a role in IT though? What sector?

    Hmm, pinning me to a sector or job role is always tricky. I\we have been mainly involved in the network and comms installation side of the industry and also electronic security. I have been involved in the IT industry in a small way on and off for a while in SME environments but more recently we are merging these skills as most of our equipment is IP based in some form or other nowadays. We are also in the process of becoming an ISP to tie in with our off site monitoring\archiving IP based CCTV solutions.

    Hi,

    My name's Luke.

    I joined the ranks of IT technical support ... well back when i was in school ... Our incumbent (read ancient) IT technician was less than willing to learn new tricks ... so despite not doing any IT qualifications in school I became the IT prefect and defacto technician ... fun times :-)

    I then defected the cause and went to study Philosophy at university, dragging it out for 4 years and travelling extensively ... well actually what i did was start up a little computing business at the university and study in between doing that!

    When I (finally) graduated ... I decided it would be a waste to actually use my degree and I became a part-time IT tech for a local school ...

    I have just (today) secured myself a permanent job as an Assistant Network Manager at school in Oxford.

    :-)

    errr ... that was quite an egotistic post ... but i'm in a good mood and celebrating.

    Hi, I'm Stephen, NM for Lytchett Minster School in Dorset. The forums look like they'll be a very useful resource, and I hope I can contribute at times.
