    I know I'm not technicaly new here but as I never posted in the New Edugeek users thread I feel justified.

    I am a NM/technition that works for multiple primary schools in Auckland. We use MUSAC software on Windows servers along with Access-IT Library on all sites. Each site has its internet filtered by the MoE provided Surfcontrol on top of ISA servers and email is provided by Exchange and filtered again by Surfcontrol.

    Other toys include a scattered assortment of mimios, genious IWBs and projectors along with an unhealthy dosage of both inkjet and laser printers.

    Smile Hi everyone :)

    Just wanted to introduce myself. I am a pc technician/network administrator at a South Auckland Primary school.
    We have Windows servers, and use Musac software in the school along with AccessIT in our library. We have Smartboards in most of the classrooms along with laptops and projectors. There is also a pc and inkjet printer in each classroom, and we have a computer suite with computers and laptops and a couple of laser printers for whole class use.

    It's a pretty varied job and I really enjoy what I do. The job is very interesting and challenging at times.

    I look forward to reading other members ideas and hopefully contributing where I can to the forum.

    Cheers

    Hi, I'm new here... I have a mainframe background (was an assembler programmer back in the 80's) and then an ICT teacher for various polytechs here and in the UK. Now living in the Coromandel I've somehow become the network/IT support person for 3+ schools. Mostly we are using SmartNet and Musac software. I am also in my third year of teacher training so I like to think I have an educationalist's view of IT! I teach IT to children two days a week too....

    Hi there Synack, I saw a mention of Edugeek in the latest NZ PC World magazine while I was browsing through it at the supermarket - quickly jotted down the URL on the bottom of my shopping list. :-)

    Thanks, I'm still waiting for my subscription copy to arrive so I went into a store and had a look. I grabbed a picture of it and posted it here: http://www.edugeek.net/forums/genera...my-letter.html so that the non-NZ members could have a look.

    hello from tauranga

    Hello

    saw the shout out in the PC World magazine this week - great idea for a site !!!

    I am network administrator of tauranga girls college, a windows 2003 based site. I work with a technician and other great staff to give this school the best ICT setup that we can afford! We are a laptop for teachers school, and students operate mostly on thin clients. Our infrastructure is based around cost saving methods, while providing quality computer access to the most amount of students.
    We have invested heavily in methods to integrate ICT into the via laptops and mounted speakers/projectors.

    Glad to be here - hope we can share some good ideas!!

    cheers,
    Armand

    Hello edugeeks, just thought I'd introduce myself as a new member

    Been working with technology in education for 12 years. First as tech at a uni in the uk (expat), mainly macs. Next managed the network at St Andrews in Christchurch (Novell/Windows). Now got my own business in Te Anau, contract support to the local high school and primary schools. Might be on the move soon though......
