Be Connected: Mapping Your Technology

December 1 @ 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm

Free

A well-connected school can help students explore new worlds, discover engaging concepts, and unlock the treasure of understanding their world and the people in it with a greater level of clarity. Along the same lines, your district’s tech team can also reach new heights in the near-term, but only if they have a map of your network’s every nook and cranny to guide them along the way.

If you don’t already have such a map at your disposal, then it’s time to take out a digital pen and parchment before joining this week’s Be Connected. We’ll be discussing best practices for mapping out your district’s network infrastructure, including using concise and streamlined diagrams to denote all of district’s network closets, cabling, equipment, schemes, structures, and more.

Be Connected is a weekly webinar series from the LTC focused on facilitating open discussions about pertinent topics within Illinois’ edtech community. Hosted by the LTC’s Chris Wherley and Eric Muckensturm, each session will focus on a specific topic and provide space for participants to ask and answer questions in a relaxed, supportive environment.

Each week will feature a different core topic and a fresh opportunity to connect with your peers. So, be sure to check the LTC events calendar routinely so that you can join in the discussion and Be Connected.
