on March 6, 2013

The technological changes occurring on K-20 campuses can move alarmingly fast for education leaders who are trying to keep their heads above water. But the simple truth is that these demands are only going to become more complex as mobile adoption continues to increase; learning environments evolve to include blended, online and hybrid models; online assessments, backed by Common Core State Standards requirements, become standard operating procedure; and data storage capacity needs to scale to petabyte levels. As education institutions try to keep up with these truths, one common obstacle stands in their way: outdated IT infrastructures. This Center for Digital Education Special Report looks at some of the key trends that are impacting IT infrastructures and gives specific guidance on what smart strategies, decisions and solutions K-20 institutions can implement to ensure that they are well prepared to take advantage of the inevitable technological changes coming their way.
