Nice new computer suite, part 2
After loads of nagging, moaning and being a pain to the bosses above me, I too have finally managed to get the go ahead for a computer suite in our school.
I am now in the process of having our music room converted into a "Music and Information Technology Suite". This will consist of the room being segmented into 5 tables (6 PCs per table) and each PC being wireless. We will also be running a Windows 7 / Server 2008 framework.
As we are going wireless, we are having 1 login, as the children will be doing most of there work on the Virtual Learning Platform. The logins will be locked down so that the children cannot change the background etc, and they have access to 2 shared drives one being read only - teachers assignments, and the other being read/write - childrens work, which will be set up in such a way that each child has there own folder, and it will be backed up hourly.
Any thoughts on this set up would be greatly appreciated, although we will not be going hardwired as doing that adds an additional £3000 to the room renovation costs! (and we went over max budget already)
