Heartland Technology Solutions

K-12 Education

Microsoft Authored Education ResellerThe technology landscape is rapidly evolving in the K-12 Education environment. With 1-to-1 and BYOD Initiatives, wireless networking and mobility are becoming a key piece of the network infrastructure. These changes mean new technologies and new strategies are required to manage these additional components.

More than just a technology provider, our dedicated K-12 Education team has worked directly in education environments and has developed a new way to for school districts to think about technology. We work with your existing team to help develop a long-term technology strategy for the district and build a plan for initiatives, training, and even funding if necessary.

Our Managed K-12 solution is an innovative offering that allows for a strategic and proactive partnership with your school district in order for your technology to do more than "just work". We collaborate with you to offer your students and staff the latest, most engaging, and most effective technologies available in order to maximize the effectiveness of the learning environment.

Monitoring, patching, and alerting

Our proactive approach allows us to monitor the performance of your network on an on-going basis. This monitoring and alerting process allows our Network Operations Center (NOC) team to quickly remedy a problem or head off a potential issue.

Timely assistance

Remote assistance is built into our tools to allow efficient support of teachers and students when requested, without drive time to your location. If necessary, we will dispatch a resource on-site.

Ownership of your technology

Our staff has the knowledge of the tools that will engage your students and enable your teachers to meet the requirements of the Common Core and district-led initiatives. From Microsoft to Google, iOS to Android, our team can work with your desired tools. A customized portal is created so that service requests can be submitted and updates of requests can be viewed by the districts primary contacts at any time.

Additional Training

It is invaluable to have a technical resource within your district, so we will take the time to help mentor your technical resource and student tech cadets on common troubleshooting steps, best practices, equipment replacement cycles and more. This ensures that your staff can make decisions that are in line with the districts vision and plans.

Additional K-12 Services

If your school district is E-Rate eligible, we have specialists on staff who can help maximize the impact of your funding.

E-Rate funding may be used to offset the costs of upgrading your schools:

  • Infrastructure
  • Security
  • Computers

As an addition to your 1-to-1 initiative or as a way for your teachers and students to access their information from anywhere, BYOD is becoming an increasingly popular alternative for school districts.

Stoneware is the first and only cloud-computing solution that is your desktop built in a browser. Students and teachers can securely access all of their IT resources – data, file directories, Windows, web and hosted applications – any time, from anywhere, using any machine or OS.

1-to-1 computing in schools is quickly becoming an agreed upon necessity; the only real obstacles are those of logistics. Any school district can explain what benefits they expect from a 1-to-1 program, but the technical details and assessments on the road to these end goals are the real challenges.

We provide a fully realized, yet still flexible roadmap that includes:

  • Technology Assessments & Planning
  • Financing & Funding
  • Hardware & Software
  • IT Support
  • Training
  • Curriculum Integration
  • Professional Development
