Round Lake Area Schools - Technology Committee

Last Thursday an ad-hoc Techology Committee was formed by the board and I was appointed chair. The purpose of this committee is to take a look at our current situation in technology, potential solutions and if the proposed solution from Net56 fits our needs.

I have started a series of pages that are a repository for the information I have collected on this topic called RLAS Technology Review (if you noticed the top banner). Stop on over and check it out.

I have been using a service from Google for one of my online businesses for a while now called Google Apps. Google has announced Google Apps for Education which is completely free and gives schools the opportunity to have Google handle their email, scheduling, word processing, spreadsheets and other productivity tools. That’s right, for free. There’s an interesting testimonial from the IT director at Arizona State University you’ll find below.
