The University of Melbourne deployed Automation Anywhere’s Robotic Process Automation (RPA) technology to reduce manual work and automate a range of administrative processes across student admissions, faculty administration, and supplier tracking.
The deployed software bots now automate the entry of all data and attachments for new admission applications, and the university has slowly expanded its automation capabilities for staff across other faculties.
This has allowed the University of Melbourne to increase the efficiency of critical business processes, boost staff engagement, and improve customer experience for its teachers and student body.
Since its origin, Mac has been an instrumental tool in
helping K-12 schools provide the right resources to
students and staff. As the must-have technology for
teachers and computer labs, Mac and its wealth of
available apps help ensure success in elementary schools
all the way through high school graduation.
Now, with more Mac computers making their way into
school environments than ever before, the need to
properly deploy, manage and secure Apple is at an
all-time high. This white paper examines how purpose-built
management solutions are essential to a successful Apple

If you’re anything like your peers, you are evaluating your education technology on an annual basis to determine if it’s time for a refresh. While most schools conduct their device refreshes during the summer because teachers, staff and students are not present, this timing can prove costly as the market is flooded with devices from schools doing the same thing.
To help school districts re-think their technology spending to focus more on total cost of ownership and residual value, as opposed to upfront cost, we’ve partnered with Diamond Assets — a technology buyback company — to explain:
• The true value and cost of iPad and Chromebook in education
• When schools receive the most trade-in value for their technology
• How to prepare for and execute technology refreshes

As schools look to blended learning as a solution to personalize and positively impact student achievement, the need to train and support teachers has become blatantly clear. Thus, districts and schools have allocated scarce resources to the process of onboarding and supporting teachers as new tools and platforms are introduced. However, school leaders and teachers often fail to recognize the need to similarly onboard and support students into new digital environments, instead trusting the inherent technological competencies of the “digital native” student.

Schools are not choosing just any mobile technology. They are adopting iPad, because it is preferred by students and teachers is easier to manage and offers extensive security features. When schools give iPad devices to students, they pave the way for enhanced
creativity, more productivity, better engagement and spontaneous collaboration.
Students and teachers at Belleville Township High School District now rely on Ruckus Networks to stay connected to laptops, tablets, and smartphones. With Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi, the IT team at Belleville Township High School District is able to access and manage WLANs with a click of a button.
Read this case study to learn why they chose Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi, allowing Belleville to take classroom learning to the next level.
To keep a certain level of innovation in the classroom, teachers and schools
often turn to grant sources – especially for new technology. Finding the
right source and winning the grant can make your school’s language learning
dreams come true. But what are these sources and how do you gear up for
your grant application?
Teachers have always experimented with new technology and how it can be integrated to augment the lessons and content given to students. Classroom sets of books afforded teachers the opportunity to give homework, movie projectors and televisions offered an opportunity to display new content, and calculators transformed computational mathematics. Augmented and virtual reality are new tools that can transition pedagogy to include new materials and content. Students can travel to historical landmarks, world heritage sites, and past events from the safety of their classroom. Books can be scanned to reveal videos and three-dimensional content identified by the teacher to enhance the content available to the student.

We all want our nation’s schools to be safe, secure learning environments where students can realize their full potential. This requires reliable, continuous communication among school personnel, both onsite and district-wide, plus the ability to instantly connect with first responders in an emergency. This seamless communication must be delivered over any network, from any location, using any device. Team Communications from Motorola Solutions provides this seamless integration, helping schools preserve the all-important safety of their students.
Team Communications empowers educational institutions to transform how they communicate, enabling individuals to share real-time information to make schools safer and staff more productive. Schools across the U.S. use Team Communications from Motorola Solutions to deliver unified voice and data to administrators, teachers, maintenance, security, coaches, and other personnel, improving decision making, increasing visibility into school activit
The introduction of bandwidth-intensive learning applications, including video and peer-to-peer applications in teaching has fundamentally transformed the way teachers teach and students learn. The federal E-rate program has forever changed the technology landscape of school districts and libraries in the United States.
Receiving funding is not guaranteed, and following the E-rate process and procedures is critical – especially when thousands, even millions, of dollars are at stake for your district. The rewards that new, education-specific cutting edge education applications deliver to the classroom far outweigh the effort required to participate in the program. This paper briefly examines the promise of new, education-specific applications, the advanced network services that enable them, and the role of the E-rate program.
In November 2008, Teach For America launched an accelerated search to find an LMS that could replace the two systems it currently used to create and upload courses. The organization discovered that Cornerstone OnDemand's availability on a Software-as-a- Service (Saas) basis would allow Teach For America to quickly implement an LMS as well as eliminate hardware and maintenance costs.
Imaging technology has dramatically aff ected the experience of K-12 teaching and classroom
dynamics. From a time when the primary ways to relay information were verbal, via a
blackboard or overhead projector, to the current array of computers, tablets, fl at screens and
projectors – deciding what to select can be complicated. Today there is a lot of focus on fl at
panels and projectors. However the big dilemma isn’t which technology to select, but how to
support the right visual environments that help teachers teach and students learn. Whether
the pedagogical style is sage on a stage, guide by the side, fl ipped classrooms, display-based or
constructivist, getting everyone on the same page and keeping focus are key components in
supporting student comprehension.

The hallmark of the Digital Age is change – constant, rapid, and often disruptive. The computer itself has changed – from mainframe to minicomputers, personal desktops to laptops, handheld devices to mobile computers or tablets. We now have tiny embedded computers – in cars, in washing machines and even in cats and dogs. How we live our lives has changed. Virtually every activity humans engage in, is impacted by computers and that’s constantly changing, too.
No surprise then, that K-12 education was also impacted by the constant transformation of computers.
