CoSN Open Technologies in K-12 Implementation Study

The Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) will be conducting the second in a series of implementation studies concerning the Indiana Linux Desktop program as part of the ongoing K-12 Open Technologies Initiative. Educational Systemics personnel Shaun Taylor and Michael Jay, who co-chair the CoSN Open Technologies Initiative, will apply their technical and market expertise in the development of these two implementation studies in conjunction with initiative advisors.

The first implementation study concerns the adoption of enterprise Linux in Saugus Schools in California, and the second focuses on implementation in the Indiana inACCESS program. Both implementation studies provide technical details about selection, research, communication, training, support, benefits and problems associated with each solution. These studies are intended to provide guidance for school administrators who are considering or in the process of adopting open technologies in their schools or school districts. Future implementation studies will focus on open source learning management systems, open content and interoperability. For more information visit CoSN K-12 Open Technologies.
