Here is the list of topics we are working on for the meeting:
  • Managing Google Apps & Chromebooks in K-12 -  We are very excited  that Art Schouten, Director of Instructional Technology, Data, Assessment, Library Media Services, and Technology Education for the Wappingers Central School District has agreed to share his expertise and best practices on managing Google Chromebooks, students and the functionality in the Google education environment.  Some of the topics Art will discuss are:
    • Organizing and maintaining device OUs
    • Device/User Settings
    • Student Privacy Features
    • Kiosk Mode
    • Digital Signage
    • Q&A
  • Tech Tidbits - Our timely collection of updates and technical tips since our last meeting.
  • Network Security and Controls - Bob will take us through his latest thinking on Geoblocking, DNS configuration, unique security issues relating to Google, and controlling BYOD and public wireless segments.
  • Basic Switch Troubleshooting - A number of you have requested that we re-visit some of the basic switch troubleshooting tips.  Bob will walk you through some of the basics for both Cisco Catalyst and Meraki equipment.
  • Basic Switch Configuration - This is another by request topic.  How to configure a switch port.  What is VLAN tagging?   Bob will take you through some of the most common tasks on both Cisco Catalyst and Meraki equipment.
  • Windows 10 Update - The October 2018 Update will be out and we will go through the highlights.
  • Windows Server 2019 First Look - Windows Server 2019 will be released in October.   We'll take our first look.
  • Deploying Software in Configuration Manager - We will look at how to push out an application in Configuration Manager.   (A fair bit of what we will talk about can be used to deploy with client management products as well).
  • What to say to the auditors - Sooner or later the state will come to audit the technology side of your district.  We'll share some thoughts on what you can say to them and what they will be looking for to make your audit as boring as possible and keep your name out of the paper.
There is no cost to you for these sessions, but advanced registration is required since seating is limited.  The presentations will run from 8:30 AM to approximately 12:00 PM.   We have breakfast and lunch afterward for you.
