The hallmark of the digital age is change – constant, rapid, and often disruptive. The computer itself has changed from mainframe to minicomputers, personal desktops to laptops, handheld devices to mobile computers. We now have tiny embedded computers in cars, in washing machines and even in cats and dogs. How we live our lives has changed. Virtually every activity humans engage in, is impacted by computers and that’s constantly changing too. No surprise then, that K-12 education was also impacted by the constant transformation of computers.

In today’s 24/7, always-on world, people expect institutions of higher education to lead with technology. Constant connectivity, mobility, and access to rich media anytime, anywhere not only define the educational experience, but also help to attract and retain the best students, faculty, and staff. Western Oregon University (WOU), relies on NetApp to help support its mission of providing effective, technology-powered learning opportunities.
This paper explores the impact that digital communication skills, using processes associated with digital storytelling, is having on disciplines including liberal arts, humanities, and cross-curricular humanities/technology collaboratories.
85% of us would rather give up water than mobile apps! We all know it—digital screens have officially invaded our lives. They have grown in popularity, enhancing our personal and professional lives, which includes the learning space. Do they really enhance the learning experience or are they just a distraction?
Today’s students are accustomed to leveraging technology as part of their education. For in-class and at-home learning, many are leveraging 1-to-1 iPad programs. For many more, a computer lab is made available to offer access to educational materials.
Labs are a cost-effective and efficient way to ensure students have access to a computer with the apps they need to be successful, saving students and parents the cost of purchasing computer hardware and software. Labs ensure digital equity for students who would not otherwise be able to afford these luxuries.
And, many school computer labs are Mac labs. Mac has a longer shelf life than PC, countless educational apps and students simply prefer them.
In order to set students up for educational and professional success, K-12 schools need to equip students with secure technology and a customized experience when they sit down at any computer in the lab.
Today’s students are accustomed to leveraging technology as part of their education. For in-class learning at K-12 environments, many are offering 1-to-1 iPad programs. While some universities are moving towards a 1-to-1 iPad model, such as The Ohio State University, many others are relying on computer labs to offer the technical tools students need.
In order to set these young adults up for professional success, higher education institutions need to equip students with secure technology and a customized experience when they sit down at any computer in the lab.

The Center for Digital Education (CDE) surveyed over 130 K-12 decision-makers on the classroom use of printer and scanner technologies in September 2014 and found scanning materials for digital use in the classroom is a key concern, with ease of use, cost containment and flexible deployment among the most critical needs. In the context of this study, this white paper will build a case for the use of scanners to revolutionize K-12 teaching, learning and administration.
Network readiness is an important factor in any new IT project at companies both large and small. New applications seem to require more bandwidth than the applications that they replace. These applications can also bring in new users, sometimes by the thousands. In some cases, the network services and/or capacity are not ready for these changes, and the IT rollout suffers.
This guide covers the following topics: bandwidth, wireless, firewalls, content filtering, proxy servers, and others.
Higher education has come under increasing scrutiny as never before due to rising costs, changes in future job requirements, and new forms of learning opportunities offered by non-traditional companies and institutions. Students and parents are rightfully questioning the value of higher education based on perceived outcomes as well as staggering student loans that in some cases could take a lifetime to pay back. While the value equation debate rages on, there is another phenomenon taking place. It is nothing short of a revolution regarding the advances in technology and how institutions of higher learning along with nontraditional organizations are utilizing these powerful new tools. These new tools include new mobile devices, enhanced and feature-rich learning management systems, data-feeding sensors, 3D printers, smart classrooms, smart buildings, and collaboration tools allowing students and faculty to collaborate just about anywhere face-to-face, virtually.
Today’s K-12 schools are hungry for bandwidth. The reason is clear: highperforming, reliable and easily expanded network services support the latest classroom innovations, including videoconferencing, 1:1 computing, distance learning and modern learning management systems. It’s no surprise then that progressive educators now see a direct link between the overall success of their school districts and access to high-capacity networks. This emerged as a clear trend in new research by the Center for Digital Education (CDE) — a commanding 98 percent of administrators and IT representatives said the future of K-12 education hinges on ubiquitous connectivity.
This white paper lays a framework for planning and implementing high-performance networks. In addition to explaining why now’s the time to plan network upgrades, this paper answers one of the fundamental questions asked by IT managers at schools everywhere: “How much network capacity will we actually need?”
This white paper explores how this 'always on' eLearning resource can facilitate technology professionals' ability to increase productivity, pursue professional certifications, and improve collaborations and communication.
