How to Prepare Your Network’s Architecture for the Mobile Device and Application Explosion

Mobile devices and applications have become more prominent in the classroom, as BYOD and 1-1 initiatives have enabled students to bring their smartphones, tablets, and laptops to school for educational use. This influx of wireless devices has made the performance, reliability, security, and cost of managing wireless networks ever more paramount. As a result, schools now require “enterprise-grade” wireless networks – those that are managed centrally, locally secured, and offer sophisticated features for scaling the network throughout their buildings, campuses, and districts. However, these features tend to be scarce or altogether absent in most of the consumer-grade wireless APs that many schools have installed in the past because of their low, sticker costs. In this session, you’ll learn how to prepare for the diversity and explosion of mobile devices and applications in education in terms of scalability, service survivability, integration, application control, and Simpli-Fi-cation with Aerohive’s distributed Wi-Fi and routing solutions.

Make Books! iBooks Author

Teachers have been making books with their students forever. But what if those books could be digital? And what if those books could include all types of media, from text and still images to video, 3-dimensional objects, independent assessment, note-card generation, interactive images, and more?  Apple's new iBooks Author does all of this, allowing users to create highly interactive and engaging content that can be leveraged to help a teacher improve a lesson, or to help a student tell the story of their accomplishments.  Applicable across all grade levels and curriculum areas. Head here www.apple.com/ibooks-author/ to learn more, and then come to this session to see how easy it is build these books, and to view them on iPad.

More apps. and more devices but no more bandwidth – now what?

This year you have more devices on the network, each wanting access to different network applications.  Everyone says their network application is “Priority #1”.  How can your infrastructure support all these new requests securely without swamping your Internet pipe or your day?  We’ll explore how Dell SonicWALL’s Next Generation Firewall solution can identify network applications and allow you to create policies to prioritize good network applications, block those you don’t want on your wired and wireless network, and bandwidth shape everything in between.  We’ll even discuss directory integration so the superintendent’s network applications really are “Priority #1”.

Meet Apple's New iTunes U & iTunes U Course Manager

You probably know Apple's iTunes U as a wonderfully rich collection of teaching & learning resources.  All sorts of learning objects can be found there - from Library of Congress text, image and video content to materials posted by the Maine Department of Education in support of the MLTI, and so much more.  But things have changed - the new iTunes U app for iOS allows access to iTunes U courses that can contain all types of content along with assignments and commentary.  Great content - curated as a course. In addition, through iTunes U Course Manager, K-12 institution faculty can now create these courses independently.  Head here: www.apple.com/education/itunes-u/ to learn more, and then plan to come to this session to see iTunes U &  iTunes U Course Manager in action.

iOS 6 Management & Deployment

The iPad has been in the market for just over two years and this extraordinary device has found its way into many K-12 schools and HiEd institutions around the globe.  As the iPad continues to enter classrooms at a rapid pace, now is the best time for IT directors and staff to learn about the new operating system, iOS 6 and how to best support it. Geared towards IT support professionals, this session will focus on the methods and strategies used to deploy, sync and manage the iPad in an educational setting.  A portion of the session will focus on Apple Configurator for OS X which makes it easy for anyone to deploy iPads with the settings, apps and data you specify for your students.

iOS 6 and the iPad in Education - Discovering the Possibilities

The iPad is a revolutionary device for browsing the web, teaching reading and language arts, engaging with mathematics and science in new ways, addressing ESL, providing remediation instruction, watching videos and movies, listening to educational podcasts, reading e-books, providing accessible education to diverse learners, and much more. iPad’s Multi-Touch™ screen lets students physically interact with applications and content. The iPad's cameras and ability to project wirelessly through Apple TV make it even more capable in the classroom. Breakthroughs in iBooks Textbooks and iTunes U bring engaging content to a whole new level. This session will demonstrate the iPad and discuss it's application across the K-12 environment. A few iPad's will be available for participants to use, but attendees are going to want to have their own in hand!
