Objectives for Integrating Technology

Internet Connection:We have two options for connecting the three computers to the Internet: either a wired, or wireless connection.  We would connect Ethernet wires from Mrs. Golliday’s office to the board room by running them along the ceiling.  The advantages to this option include a secure and reliable connection.  The disadvantages include: modifying wires to fit our need and stapling visible wires along the ceiling.  The wireless connection wouldn’t require wires, but provides less security.  Our goal is to devise a workable solution a week before our next travel day.

Website Design: We will also integrate technology that will not produce immediately  tangible results for computer users.  Kyle is working on a web site for the administration building.  He started on the following pages: Homepage/Park News, Jones Park, Lincoln Park, Virginia Park, Foundation, Administration and History.

1. Headphones
