Charting the Security Journey for K-12 Schools
The role of IT leaders in the K-12 environment is changing, from a technology
focus to a more strategic focus on the enablement of eLearning and digital
transformation. In their new roles, technology directors are undergoing much
more scrutiny, as network security and regulatory compliance make up a
larger part of their responsibilities.
Because K-12 network security breaches have gained such a high profile,
nearly all technology products now feature some form of security provision.
There are also dedicated security solutions from a variety of vendors.
Unfortunately, a piecemeal approach to security creates a hodgepodge
of technologies, which are hard to coordinate and don’t allow IT to deal
effectively with persistent, accelerating, and pervasive threats.
It is up to each school district to develop a strategy for broad, integrated, and
automated network security. Network security design should adhere to best
practices, such as those promoted by the SANS Institute and the Consortium
for School Networking (CoSN).  The resulting security architecture must be
agile enough to keep pace with perpetual changes in education, regulation,
and cyber crime. And, most important, it must be practical to implement
and maintain, given the district’s budget, staffing, and time constraints. As a
longtime solution partner of schools, Fortinet offers IT leaders a proven model
for such a strategy.

How to make the most out of your 1:1 computing initiatives
K-12 schools are moving towards deploying full 1:1 computing in their classrooms along with cloud enabled applications. In order to take full advantage of such initiatives, and not have interruptions in learning or testing, your WiFi network must work flawlessly and provide sufficient bandwidth. Knowing what is going on in your network is important, but pinpointing the exact problems and solutions in a timely manner using a cloud-enabled model is critical. Wyebot, the Leader in WiFi Assurance, will show you how to use an AI-based, cloud-enabled platform to proactively troubleshoot your WiFi network and application degradation, eliminate building hopping, and solve your WiFi problems quickly.

Procure, Create, Curate: How to support successful instructional design for 21st C Learning Environments
In this last decade we have experienced major shifts in the workforce and in society. The skills needed to succeed in the workplace are shifting, with some careers becoming obsolete, and others experiencing declining pay rates. As educators, we are beginning to identify that these careers are not viable options for our students’ futures. We continue to read news about all the ways in which new technologies will change society, the workplace and even our bodies. We also hear news about increasingly complex problems to solve, like mass migrations, conflicts and the need for soft skills. What does this new world require of educators and the technologists who support them, so all students are ready to be productive local and global citizens? Join us to discuss the fascinating topic of digital curriculum and content: How should we design and develop the new learning environment, so all students graduate college, career and life-ready?
