Why You Should Revamp Your School’s ICT Suite

Fri 03 November, 2017

Long gone are the days where the demands of ICT were little more than servicing a school admin and a computer room. Nowadays, every individual needs access to ICT on multiple platforms. When this is under-utilised due to poor performance, students and teachers are limited in terms of what they can access and this means missing out on many invaluable resources. The requirements of ICT in schools are growing too, as computing curriculums become increasingly demanding and integrate more into other subjects. If any of this sounds familiar, then you should consider a revamp with a new ICT suite installation, which would enable you to meet increased demand and provide a wealth of technical advantages to your teachers and students. Before you start an ICT suite installation, here are a few things to consider: 

  • BUDGET 

When considering a new ICT suite it is important to consider the current budget but also take into account long-term savings. To ensure you get a good price you should have evaluation criteria so you can compare and be decisive about what elements you desire as part of your ICT suite installation. You should also talk to your local authority in case they have a procurement or other mechanism designed to help schools. Your budget also determines if you upgrade your ICT suite in one installation or incrementally. When it comes to the equipment itself, it is also worth weighing up the benefits of purchasing or leasing it. 

  • ACCOUNTABILITY 

This is a vital aspect to consider when looking into your ICT suite installation. An effective ICT system provides educational infrastructure by improving the quality and efficiency of school management and administration. In doing so, your new ICT suite helps to ensure transparency and accountability on all levels, from funding to acquisition
