Intro to Networks/VLANs

November 3
1:00 PM - 2:50 PM
Technology Infrastructure
Technology Leaders/Support

Educational technology staff often wear many hats, and one of those hats is “Network Admin”. Without formal training or years of experience, it’s hard to wrap your head around the various network protocols, equipment, and best practices. This session will give a broad overview of basic network infrastructure, how to lay out your IP Scheme, best practices from years of experience, and tips/tricks learned along the way.

This session is intended for Technology Staff. It is not curriculum/instructional based. It would be valuable for teachers and non-technology admin to have a basic understanding of “how everything connects”.
