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.
