eSchool News gives webinar on successful laptop management
eSN provides educators and IT staff an up-close look at one school’s success
Sponsored by Absolute Software, the webinar will take place on February 2, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. EDT (11:00 a.m. PST). The duration is expected to be one hour, and registration is free.
Despite reduced funding and even IT staff, school districts across the country are being held to higher levels of accountability than ever. With fewer resources, school IT staffs are seeking solutions to balance classroom computing demands while abiding by education board inventory requirements.
Leonard Niebo, Director of IT for Brick Township Public Schools, leads the discussion on overcoming the roadblocks of a manual auditing process, specialized computing needs and incidents of loss and theft.
Niebo will address how his IT team tackled the same issues many schools are facing today:
• Streamlining inventorying by automating audits and enabling tracking
• Achieving a 100% return rate for student laptops
• Protecting data and specialized software on student devices
• Anticipating cross-platform computing needs for Apple devices
