Cloud Computing Technologies Available Today
Today, ICT in Victorian schools is...

• Becoming mobile

• Converging on the cloud

• Becoming more affordable



As these trends continue, ICT devices could be on school
booklists in the next 1-3 years.
Today's challenges in supporting ICT in the
classroom environment
• Increased use and reliance on ICT.

• Increased computer-student ratio (1:5 – 1:2 – 1:1 – 2:1).

• Increased demand for services.

• Increased expectation of wireless technology.

• At this stage – no major change to our ICT support systems
 The challenges of ICT from a school perspective..

                                           In the right
                                           corner –
                                           support,
                                           management,
                                           maintenance,
                                           $$$




In the left corner
– innovation,
eLearning, new
e-curriculum
delivery models
Efficiency?

   1600 different school curric network solutions
     = little/no economy of scale in technical solutions

           = potential for overworked technicians

    = an inefficient system for future ICT service delivery
Purpose of eduSTAR



Develop, pilot and measure the benefit of technology based
models for the implementation of a managed, cost effective
ICT environment in schools.




                     Implemented in a sample of 10 schools by August 2009
