The Network ISTE NETS-t Standards 3.a, 3.d (ISTE, 2010)

  • This course is designed to encourage administrators, teachers, and support staff to understand the network infrastructure behind the instructional technology in classrooms and media centers.

    Upon completion, participants will be able to trace the digital path of media downloaded from or uploaded to the World Wide Web, identify two different types of filtering, protection, and/or monitoring software, and describe how they will use at least two instructional technologies (other than computers) in their classroom.

    Watch the video in the introduction link (Nesbitt 2007).

    Salmon River JSD 243 has up-to date technology for teacher and student use. Our district uses both wired and wireless devices. The Local Area Network/Wireless Local Area Network (LAN/WLAN) is connected to the Intenet via Metro Ethernet, giving the district a high speed bandwidth for our distance learning, classroom video instruction, and mobile device needs. All classrooms are equipped with projectors, student response pads, and interactive slates. Three wireless laptop carts (12 laptops each cart)are available for classrooms on reservation from the media center, and digital cameras and video cameras are available in the tech lab. Teachers can monitor student activity using LanSchool Software to ensure content objectives are met. Student Internet activity is filtered with WebSense software, and ESET protects the Network from virus and other malware attacks. The network is protected from outside attacks and unauthorized access using Active Directory, a firewall (Cisco ASA 5510), and user training. All staff network users are asked to complete the teacher survey and sign a Network Acceptable Use Policy after completing this lesson.
