Summer is finally here and the kids are off for the next few weeks. This is the time of the year for schools to make the much-needed upgrades before the 2017/18 school year, but what should your school invest in? There are many upgrades that could be made, but what are the most important? We’ve narrowed down the list to three important investments schools should make.
With every year that passes, computers and their programs need more memory because the files continually get larger and more complex. This could lead to a major problem when you need to upload or download important documents or projects and your current WiFi doesn’t have the bandwidth to handle the traffic.
Hardware and Software.
Technology evolves at a rapid pace, but so do the threats to a computer’s hardware and software. Making sure everything is up-to-date means security patches are in place to thwart computer and network intrusions. Those updates will also mean there won’t be compatibility issues between operating systems and the programs they try to run. Downtime in the classroom may be fun for students, but not for teachers and administrators.
Phones and P.A. Systems.
Communication is a key factor in almost anything you do in life and it’s no different in a school environment. Upgrading your phone or P.A. systems will make it easier for an administrator to quickly call a classroom regarding a student or make important announcements when needed, thus ensuring teachers can focus more on teaching and students on learning.
When making those important decisions this summer, keep these in mind. They could make the difference between success and failure.
