t4l 2009
T4L - 2009
  • The original T4L project ended in 2008
  • A new T4L project is starting in 2009
  • 100 000 units over 4 years (same as 2005-8)
  • 20 000 additional units for K-6 schools
    • As a trade-off because 7-12 benefit from DER
  • Actual unit allocations for each school are yet to be finalised
  • Allocations will be emailed to each school
t4l k 6 2009 continued
T4L K-6 – 2009 (continued)

An indicative figure for your 2009 allocation:

Divide your enrolment by 32 (1:8 over 4 years)

Increase that number by 20%

P5 and P6 schools are expected to receive their entire 4 year allocation in 2009 to replace the computers received in 2005

Plus 20%

Note: Figures will vary according to changes in enrolment – 2009 census data is used

t4l 7 12 2009 continued
T4L 7-12 – 2009 (continued)
  • An indicative figure for your 2009 allocation:
    • Divide your enrolment by 32 (1:8 over 4 years)
  • This is expected to be unchanged from previous T4L program
  • Note: Figures will vary according to changes in enrolment – 2009 census data will be used.
t4l 2009 continued
T4L – 2009 (continued)
  • No decision has been made regarding which semester of 2009 that Sydney Region schools will be supplied
  • Hunter Region was originally supplied with Optima PC’s on T4L rollout.
    • As Optima has closed, Hunter region is a Priority for Semester 1.
  • However once allocations have been sent out to schools there will be a short turn around time required.
  • Warranties will be extended on all 2005 Rollout desktops, notebooks and servers, until the 2009 Rollout has occurred.
t4l 2009 continued9
T4L – 2009 (continued)
  • Vendors:
    • Desktops
      • Lenovo (2 Models), Apple (still to be finalised)
    • Laptops
      • Acer (2 new models), Apple (still to be finalised)
    • Servers
      • Dell (2 Models), Apple (still to be finalised)
  • It is expected that in 2010 the L4L learning device will be available on T4L rollout.
t4l software delivery
T4L Software Delivery
  • A final announcement on this has not yet been made but it is likely that:
    • DET SOE will be delivered via the CPC’s and Altiris
    • Devices will receive base OS image followed by specific drivers and appropriate application layers.
    • This approach will be used to rebuild older PCs as well.
advantages of soe layering
Advantages of SOE Layering
  • Images are much smaller and therefore much quicker to deploy
  • Target software as required:
    • K-6 software on K-6 computers
    • 7-12 software on 7-12 computers
    • Staff software on staff computers
  • It is expected schools will be able to initiate reimaging via the CPC themselves

    • Front wall must be unobstructed (flat) solid wall space of minimum 3.6m wide by 2.8m high
    • Room to cater for at least 30 students
    • Power and data outlets must be on the front wall. Power outlet must be on back wall
    • Room must be accessible by all (i.e. not a particular teacher’s classroom). Consider disabled access as well
preparing for your school s i c20
Preparing for your school’s I.C.
  • Room should be secure(decent locks door/ windows)
  • Consider existing ambient noise levels
    • Location of room (eg. beside COLA?)
    • Carpet on floor?
  • Library/Computer labs may not be suitable due to loss of access when a VC needs to be run
  • Long rooms can be a problem for the rear camera/microphones
  • If you need to build a wall, ask a TA for advice ASAP
  • When selecting your Connected Classroom, consider future – not current – requirements

email spam and phishing
Email, Spam and Phishing

Many school staff are complaining about Spam and Phishing emails arriving in their mailbox

Spam & Phishing are a fact of life and we must be aware

The vast majority of email arriving at NSW DET’s mail server is NOT legitimate email

We only see a trickle of Spam that the filters miss

If you receive Spam, you can forward it to “abuse” or just delete it.

Teach your staff that no-one will legitimately email them asking for personal details – this is Phishing.

Advice for Dealing with Spam can be found at this DET Intranet site –http://tinyurl.com/detspam

your school server s
Your School Server(s)
  • Most schools would find it very difficult to operate if their server ceased functioning
  • SRITSU recommends that School Servers are in warranty
    • As they run out, plan to buy a new one
  • If you received your server:
    • Before 2005 – Not covered by warranty
    • in 2005 - Warranty will expire this year
    • After 2005 – 4 Year warranty still covers
school servers
School Servers
  • Servers need on-site warranty to ensure prompt repair if hardware issues occur
  • Servers out of warranty may lead to expensive repair bills which may not be cost-effective
  • All Discretionary Purchase and T4L servers are supplied with priority 4-hour response time for hardware failure for four years
  • Replaced servers may still be useful for non-critical functions such as AD and data backup
preparing for a new school server
Preparing for a New School Server

Many schools ordered a server in 2005 when T4L started and their server is now 4 years old

During 2009, these schools should either order a new T4L server, or buy one with school funds

Since then, servers have changed from 32-bit to 64-bit processors meaning that some changes are necessary when updating. These include:

New Logon scripts, Changes to Fileshares

Changes to Print Queues and Group Policies

SRITSU can assist with your changeover

Expect two to three days of downtime during changeover
