As educators, we want the best for our schools. We want the school experience to be rewarding for students, parents and staff. Today, part of that experience is making the best use of technology to enable the learning process and to advance the mission of our schools. We all want the best technology to enhance the classroom experience for students and teachers. We want a wireless network that is responsive to the needs of students, teachers and staff, one that doesn’t bog down and drop connections. We all want an environment that allows teachers and students to take advantage of the myriad resources and learning experiences the Web has to offer without fear of intrusion or other internet dangers. The devices our students use should be managed without physical intrusion, and when they break, for whatever reason, it should be easy for a student or teacher to get a replacement and get back in the game. We want software systems that allow teachers to lead students, whether they are inside the classroom or outside, because we all realize that learning is no longer contained by the walls of the school. When we need to print, we want the process to be easy, secure, trackable and FERPA-compliant. And in our perfect school, all of this enabling technology would be supported by skilled, caring individuals who share your concerns and sense of mission.
We know what we want, but do we know how to get there? Do we know what to buy? Do we know what it’s going to cost, and how to pay for it? Do we know it’s going to work, and whether our school infrastructure can support it. So how do we go from dream to reality? You need a plan. You need someone like All Covered, the Information Technology Services division of Konica Minolta to look at your technology and discuss your plans for the future. All Covered’s technology assessment will give you an in-depth understanding of where your school is, and help you develop short-term and long-term goals and give you a map of how to get there.
Our educators will discuss which technologies are working for your school, and which can be upgraded or added. Our technology professionals will assess your backup systems, network, cloud connections and security policies. Additionally, we’ll look at how students, staff and teachers are supported. At the end of the process, we’ll present a report showing what we found, where you want to go, and how to get there. All Covered’s Educational Technology Assessment is a valuable tool to help you intelligently apply technology to accomplish your educational goals. As your trusted partner, we collaborate with your administration and other stakeholders to ensure your goals can be realized when it comes to planning and implementing new technology initiatives. Let All Covered IT Services from Konica Minolta be the technology support system that your school or district deserves.
