Upgrading the computer facilities of a school
The school had $50,000 to spend on upgrading its technology. This included computers, software, other in-class technologies and professional development of teachers.
Prior to speaking to me, the ICT Committee had earmarked $30,000 for the computers and software. After our first meeting, we determined that the requirements could be greatly exceeded with a significantly lower budget. Eventually, the computers and software came to $12,000.
By this saving, we almost doubled the school’s budget for in-class technologies and professional development.
