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.

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.
