Tablets in K-12 Education: Design Your Wireless Network for Tomorrow

March 4, 2013 - 1 Comment

Whenever I travel for business, I take my tablet along. It connects me to work email, it plays my favorite music and it allows me to catch up on Red Sox games during baseball season. It is also a filled with pre-K apps for my son to learn his numbers and letters in preparation for kindergarten.

This use of the tablet for engaging young minds is probably no surprise to most parents, and it is no secret that tablets are changing the way our children are learning both in and out of the classroom. More and more schools are interested in ramping up the role of technology in the classroom, and with this in mind, we put together a webinar for K-12 educators on the very topic of tablets in K-12 education.

In this Wednesday’s webinar, we will cover:

  • Best practices for designing your wireless network
  • Which tablets you should consider to optimize your wireless network
  • Network requirements for client side, infrastructure, and management
  • Live demonstration of the Cisco Wireless Solution, including the newly acquired Meraki products

We will also be joined by John Graham, the Executive Director of IT for the Utica Community School System in Utica, MI. He will also share his experience on how to best deploy a wireless network for tablets.

So join us on Wednesday March 6th at 10:00 AM PST for a great session on tablets in education! Register today

  1. It´s awesome how things are moving. The technology implication in education is changing the way we learn. In countries like Mexico I hope this initiatives become part of the near future in all schools and now with Cisco and Meraki I think it´s now more simple and easy to deploy and manage the networks and the devices in order to reduce risks specially for the children. I think technology is always a challenge but if partners and users have proper information and training it will always bring awesome benefits!. Thanks and keep blogging.
