IT devices and infrastructure

Back
Our international school's objective as regards IT devices and infrastructure can be summed up in a nutshell: to fully exploit the possibilities of technology while maximizing the safety of its users and data.
  • Description
Maintaining an effective balance between use and security requires significant resources and highly skilled personnel.

In 2010-2011, IIL became the first private school in Switzerland to introduce iPads on a 1to1 basis. Every student and teacher is provided with their own iPad.

Our international school maintains maximum control over all school iPads by way of a Mobile Device Management (MDM) system. In so doing, IIL has gained valuable and extensive experience in user and data security, the remote implementation of applications, wireless network design (WiFi) within the establishment and management of the accrual in power required to maintain the network in operation.

Through this research, the school has gradually evolved and is able  provide the infrastructure needed to operate all terminals (iPads, computers, Smartboards) without interruption. The WiFi network is constantly being reinforced in order to meet the growing demands of hardware and applications in terms of volume, data transfer speed and broadband consumption. Furthermore, it provides a means for the broadcasting of in-house film on a closed circuit (show.iil.ch) within the constraints of school policy on image rights.

A number of other devices optimise the use of technology. Interactive whiteboards are installed throughout the school enhancing the use of resources and allowing students and staff to explore new learning and teaching strategies. Screens placed at strategic locations around the school campus broadcast a continual flow of school news and students' work. There's a school iBar providing technical support, a large selection of applications for all students and teachers, as well as computer rooms (one of which can be used as a cinema), technology classrooms, and a recently set up film studio.
