What do IT and K12 Common Core Standards have in common? Forty-five states, the District of Columbia, four territories, and the Department of Defense Education Activity have adopted the Common Core State Standards. 100% of each of these states’ schools must update their network infrastructure to support the mandated online testing capabilities. Enter district IT.
Technology is a key component when it comes to achieving the objectives of these standards. The objective is to augment the learning experience through the use of wired and wireless devices and enhance skills such as communication, collaboration, research, critical thinking and tackling problems. The mandate is computer based assessments. This promotes more personalized leaning. The students are also acclimated to use technology effectively for productive life activities in the future.
The combination of common core standards adoption with BYOD or 1:1 initiatives, results in an exponential growth in addressing endpoints, bandwidth, and security. Schools are looking to upgrade their existing networks to be able to handle the current and future requirements of these standards.
This might have you worried. How can we have a seamless, simple and secure network that supports the demanding K12 Common Core requirements while meeting the schools budget?
Don’t worry, Cisco has various solutions for the K12 Common Core Standards that can meet the requirements and budget of any school.
Join us on February 5th to learn about how to get your K-12 network ready for Common Core standards (Register here!). Cisco expert Tony De La Rosa will demonstrate how to deploy K12 Common Core ready networks.
