School Server Recap

A community school server provides communication, networking, content, and maintenance to a school and/or classroom. In everyday usage the school server provides services extending capabilities of the connected laptops, enhancing teacher-child-parent relationships. In general, these services include:

  • Classroom connectivity – Similar to what you would find in an advanced home router.
  • Internet gateway – If available, an internet connection is made available to laptops.
  • Content - Tools for deployments and teachers to make instructional media available to their schools and classrooms.
  • Maintenance - Tools to keep laptops updated and running smoothly.
