Editor's Note– Get What You Need
6/29/2012 12:00:00 AM
June is high season for edtech trade shows. First came
Infocomm, which this year was in Las Vegas, and is
devoted to all things AV. It’s interesting to traipse the
show floor and gape at all the techno eye candy geared for
corporate and other institutional applications: space-age
videoconferencing, super high-resolution projectors, slick
interactive presentation software, etc.
Then there was the stuff for K-12. It’s usually over in far corner with
most of last year’s models. It may as well have clearance sale tags. So it goes for the perceivedas-
poor K-12 school district techie. No matter how cutting edge you may want to be, money will
always be an object. Which is why each year we take one issue and devote it entirely to the issue
of money—how to get it, how to save it, and how to
spend it. In “Keeping Track”, we survey
districts that use asset management software to find
cost savings. In “Go Green to Save Green”,
contributor Sascha Zuger tracks down how to keep
costs lower by expending less energy. And in “(not so)
Easy Money”, we had six IT directors share
their fiscal pain and what they do to combat it. As Mick
Jagger once crooned: “You can’t always get what you
want. But if you try sometimes, you get what you need.”
How do you deal with money issues? Go online to
techlearning.com and share your tips. We’re all in this
together!Here’s to continuing the conversation.
