More schools are making the move to wireless technology to support BYOD initiatives, One to One (1:1) Learning, or simply to support the bandwidth requirements of data hungry devices. Wireless technology also allows schools to avoid running miles of cable throughout buildings. Whether you want the convenience of managing your network remotely, are preparing for high-density, or are looking to upgrade to the latest wireless standard, Forward Edge can help.
(Bring Your Own Device) has recently come to the forefront as a top education technology concern. EdTech Magazine reports 85% of educational institutions now allow students, teachers, and faculty to use personal devices on schools with 44% of K-12 schools allowing students to bring their own devices. BYOD is a way for schools to save money while integrating mobile devices and upgrading the quality of the educational experience.
School safety and security issues are increasingly at the top of school technology lists. Increased frequency of violence in schools, colleges and universities nationwide make having a strong security plan a must. From video surveillance, crisis planning, and security assessment to emergency preparedness, Forward Edge creates a personalized plan that lays out the roadmap from start to secure learning environment.
As technology becomes more customized, schools will require ways to access classroom information outside its walls. Cloud computing and storage make it possible for everyday lessons to be revisited from home, for parents to follow along easily, and for teachers to access their files off-site. Cloud applications are becoming a more affordable and convenient technology for K-12 use. See what it can mean for your school.
