The beauty of edugeek is that you have IT people of all ages, experience and backgrounds working together... I'm sure we'll be able to help you along the way and you'll no doubt be able to help us from time-to-time too.

Hi I'm Mike been in IT a long long time, but now having a bit of a rest as an IT tech in a secondary school, with some responsibility for VLE.
Education is a strange environment to work in, mostly nice but "Teacher Knows Best" is really ......
Hello from Australia,
I've been teaching online since last century and am interested in tools that people can use to save time and also provide better educational opportunities to their students.
See you in the forums,
I'm relatively new here. I'm an IT Manager for a public school district in southern Florida, USA. I manage a staff of 13. We provide support for nearly every technology product (if it plugs into the wall or connects to the network, we're expected to support it), including around 7,500 desktops and laptops, 100+ servers, 20+ telephone systems, and all of the software that runs on those systems (including business-side apps like Exchange and hundreds of instructional apps) and all of the networks that connect those systems.
* 5 break-fix techs (for all 7,500 desktops)
* 1 system admin (Windows servers, Exchange, VMware, SAN, backup)
* 1 network specialist (all apps, printers, a/v, you name it)
* 1 network engineer (network guru, WAN, LAN, VOIP, wireless, UHF radios, structured cabling)
* 2 telecommunications specialists (network wiring, light lifting on the VOIP systems)
* 1.5 help desk people
* 1.5 computer operators (print jobs from AS/400 - one operator works on the help desk)

* Web filtering: St. Bernard iPrism
