Module 3. Infrastructure

This is what many people deem the most important. The principle is as follows: no equipment, no technology.

But the infrastructure issue cannot be reduced to hardware. We need to prepare an appropriate, digital learning environment, and a coherent, well-organised space in which learning processes can take place.

This space should include not only computers or tablets, but also devices that enable the integration of various devices, their management, access to the Internet and to the local network. It also has to be based on professional solutions given that schools are professional institutions and have to be equipped with reliable, stable technology.

A well-designed network ensures access from any part of the school. Not only from the classroom, but also from the corridors, the gym or the school yard. Such a wireless network makes educational services – the second pillar of the technological space – widely available and transparent.
