It’s usually the iPad devices and other creative technology that get all the plaudits for their teaching and learning benefits, but the real unsung heroes work behind the scenes. We’re talking about WiFi, networking, servers and storage. They might not be the most exciting aspect of your tech, but without them, you’re going to struggle to support a large device deployment.
And while you may have a Dependable Dave you can rely on to handle your IT, when it comes to more complex WiFi setups, you may find yourself in need of a networking expert. Luckily we provide solutions to ensure your WiFi and network are up to scratch, and you’re backed up with reliable storage.
Servers and storage
Two more things it’s very important to consider in your technology deployment are your servers and storage. A server gives everyone in the school access to centralised files and folders on the network, while storage solutions make sure all your resources and wonderful content you and students have made like video and audio are all backed up and secure (and not just on disparate USB drives or saved to the desktop – never to the desktop!). If you think yours might be in need of an upgrade, get in touch with the team for a free review!

Creating an IT infrastructure that supports modern learning
In 2014, Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School reopened as a free school, and realised that their IT setup and network wasn’t up to the challenge of handling new students and staff. The IT team came up with a five year investment plan and, with a bit of help from Jigsaw24, a high speed network was soon in place...
“[The new network] had a huge impact on staff morale and on their confidence in the IT systems of the school, which had previously been low. Our staff were amazed at the speed at which the improvements took place.”
Vikki Dodd, Head of Computing, Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School
