166: Deploy 2016, Part 4: The Network

Fraser and Bradley continue with the 2016 Deployment series with a discussion about your schools network. They discuss the bandwidth coming in, the firewall, DHCP, switches, and Wi-Fi. It’s important to spend some time here on your deployment. A great deployment can be derailed by a poor network that isn’t easy to fix.

165: Deploy 2016, Part 3: What Drives The Reason to Deploy

Fraser and Bradley continue the 2016 Deployment series with a discussion about
why we deploy technology in schools. From pressure from parents, surround schools, and internal strategic planning, schools are all starting from different places.

164: Deploy 2016, Part 2: What Makes a Tech Friendly Head of School?

Fraser and Bradley continue with the 2016 Deployment series with a discussion about the qualities a technology friendly leader has. While they cover these in depth on the show, the key takeaways are setting vision, modeling behavior, setting expectations (and committing to them), willingness to fail, willingness to expect success, ability to see past the device, and the ability to hire great people (and leave them alone).

163: Deploy 2016, Part 1: What’s Changed Since 2014

Fraser and Bradley kickoff the Deploy 2016 series with an introductory episode about the plans and goals for the series. Since they last did the series in 2014, quite a bit has changed in the iPad deployment area (all for the good). When they were doing the series in 2014, iOS 7 was a few months old, and there still were a lot of gotchas relating to how to scale iPad deployment up to 1000s of units. iOS was also stagnant in terms of its feature set compared to desktop. With the release of iOS 9, device based app assignment, and spread of the device enrollment program to outside of the US, iPad deployments are a lot more complex, but also also simpler.
