Transforming Your IT Needs

The Double Edged Sword of 21st Century Learning: IT Dependence

Blended learning and connected students are NOT just buzz words for your school district but a positive shift in culture, preparing your students with the skills they need to succeed in tomorrow’s tech world. You are transforming classrooms with tablets and chrome books and have witnessed the power of personalized learning and collaborative teaching.

In fact, 92% of teachers say the Internet has a major impact on their ability to access content, resources and materials for teaching.

No one is denying the benefits of 21st century learning, but it also comes with a double edged sword:  IT dependence.  As an IT administrator, you are well versed in the headaches that occur when the network goes down or a power outage occurs. From teachers not being able to administer tests to limiting a cafeteria’s point-of-sale capabilities to compromising the security of your facilities.
