Deploying a Flexible School Infrastructure for the Digital Age

Today’s IT managers are tasked with standard computing for K-12 population amidst a multitude of devices, widely varying deployment and accessibility standards, and a large spectrum of usage scenarios. Principals and teacher are looking for an anytime, anywhere, any devise service that supports in school, mobile, and home use across a breadth of evolving learning and teaching methodologies. How can educational institutions – from the single independent school to the city or state wide school system—develop an architecture that delivers a consistent, customizable, secure, manageable and reliable experience that is device-agnostic? How and when do we perform the compute cycles necessary to equip students with the skills necessary for 21st century success?

In order to understand the possibilities and tradeoffs, this paper looks at an achievable, cost effective “good, better, best” model for education infrastructures, all based on common configurations in today’s school. The model recommended by Intel is designed to help schools adapt, serve, and scale without having to reinvest in new infrastructure each time the device or learning landscape changes. It is an evolutionary model, allowing schools to start where they are and move as budget and resources allow, toward systematic planned, short and long term growth.
