Mobile devices have transformed the learning experience in many classrooms today, and wireless networks play a key part in supporting technology-driven learning. The connected classroom allows students to unearth a wealth of resources beyond their four walls, and it offers the teachers new ways to engage and inspire. While connectivity has become an expectation of students, as well as a platform for digital learning, the increased number of mobile devices in the classroom also creates many challenges that IT departments are continually facing.
This K-12 Best Practice Guide has been designed to help schools understand key considerations when investigating WLAN technologies to support their digital learning environments. It will explain why appropriate planning, selecting enterprise grade solutions, and outsourcing the assessment, implementation, and management of WLAN infrastructure can dramatically reduce the IT burden of supporting mobile devices.
