Information Technology (IT) for Education
Creating a Technical Infrastructure That Supports Learning
Schools are often challenged by budget limitations and lack the technical expertise to deliver advanced technology. Some students have no exposure to technology at home, while others have advanced systems that classrooms can’t match. Staff and student data needs to be protected, but educators and students are often unsophisticated about phishing and other security threats. Schools need to deliver IT that keeps data secure while also supporting learning and encouraging student and staff creativity.
