No matter how many years’ experience you have in education, taking on a subject lead can be a daunting task. Given the mishmash of roles and responsibilities, IT lead has to be one of the most daunting of all.
Perhaps you’re purely focused on your responsibility for guiding your school on the subject of IT and what to offer students.

Traditional meetings where colleagues get together around the boardroom table are no longer a necessity. Today, workers are able to meet digitally, share and confer while in completely different locations, thanks to digital technology.
But without the right setup, what should be a time-saving, productivity-enhancing development instead becomes a drain on resources. Teams are forced to struggle with poor call quality, the wrong connectors for their devices or a low-resolution display screen that means they can’t share the content they want to at the quality they need.
Fortunately, many companies are noticing the fact that poor technology implementation means frustrated teams and wasted hours and so they’re moving to choose the right technology to help with multi-site meeting collaboration and allow teams around the world to be more productive.

The crux of the matter is that wireless connectivity really does save time and nowhere is this more evident in the meeting room than with wireless presentation devices. W
