Administering School ICT infrastructure: developing your knowledge and skills (European Schoolnet)

This course brings ICT together administrators to hear about current practices and new developments, to learn from each other and to reflect on their work through a mix of over 20 specially commissioned video case studies produced by practitioners, live webinars with expert input, and stimulating, enjoyable and relevant activities and discussions. The course aims to build your knowledge, skills and confidence in six key topic areas: Optimising the school network, Wireless networking and Bring Your Own Device, Cloud models and services, Securing networks and digital safety, New tools and services (including technology for special needs), and Professional skills and tips, including producing a school ICT development plan.

The focus of the course is on practical understanding and day-to-day problem-solving. We will be reflecting, discussing and sharing with each other about these topics. You will find a community of like-minded professionals on the course who can support each other in improving their practices. We will be using a variety of online tools and social media to communicate with each other and engage in peer review activities.

The course is led by technical and pedagogical experts at European Schoolnet and is supported with funding and expertise from the Cisco Networking Academy. Video contributions were kindly provided by volunteers from schools, universities, and teacher education institutions.
