Trepanier, Dennis Michael
MetadataShow full item record
Telecommunications network technology can enrich both classrooms and administration of the nation's public schools in preparation for the global economy of the 21st century. Shortages of curricula and reference materials may no longer be problems as up-to-date materials, guest educators, and people at otherwise inaccessible locations are brought directly into the learning environment. Teachers and administrators will work in new ways with their colleagues across the nation and around the world. A critical and seldom recognized requirement to support the day-to-day operation of educational telecommunications networks is sustainable network management. This study describes network management, services, and associated tools essential to the proper operation of networks in the kindergarten through twelfth grade (K-12) educational mission. It also discusses network management solutions that educators and others can use to optimize network technology. Case studies are presented which compare different networks, their tools, and approaches to management. Recommendations for sustainable K-12 network management and regional action are provided based upon analysis of the literature and these cases.
