"Don't Teachers and Students Deserve Technology that Just Works?"
Regardless of how technology is acquired, used or supported in your school(s), we firmly believe that every school needs to assess its commitment to the sustainability of the technology investment, and to develop an ongoing strategy that takes into consideration what is required to allow the District to focus resources on the instructional mission.
Managing Technology in a Changing Environment
Many Districts have completed or have plans to complete significant upgrades or rollouts of various instructional and office technology systems. With the right leadership and vision, we see an ongoing commitment to a strong educational technology initiative over the short and long-terms, including an appropriate refresh plan. However, there can be growing concerns that traditional district technology support teams might not have (or maintain) the skills, budget or time to support the environment going forward. These conditions afford an opportunity to consider alternative models for providing technology support, management and strategic direction.
What is Technology Support?
Technology Support in a District should be designed to enable all users to gain greater benefits from the investment in technology by using the right resource at the right time in managing network infrastructure, security, data and communications and providing desktop support services.
Engaging with Techcare on certain of these requirements would also allow a District’s staff to focus their efforts and resources on elements of the technology investment that are instructional in nature, unique and core to the district mission.
At the end of the day, a good technology support plan will help a District move away from simply managing the problems on the network and computers, towards managing end-user expectations – so that the use of the tools will meet the specific and identified needs of the user(s).
What is right for your District or School?
With thousands of schools and districts in the area, there is not one “cookie-cutter” support plan that works for everyone. Depending on your current use of technology, budgets, staffing and expectations – Techcare has a sustainable technology support option for your team. Some examples of our more popular plan options are:
We firmly believe that every school needs to assess its commitment to the sustainability of the technology investment, and to develop a strategy that takes into consideration potential staffing and organizational changes, allowing the District to focus on the instructional mission.
