Outlining Capability for Greener, Safer, More Sustainable Schools Preface
As part of Cisco's support for Australia's education reform initiatives, this blueprint looks to support state education departments in ensuring technology-enabled solutions are complementary to the acceleration of education outcomes and objectives outlined in the 2008 Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Children. It seeks to further advance the value of the network in centralising, standardising and enabling efficiencies across school systems.
This blueprint emphasises the first phase in any approach to support change at scale across the ICT network.It establishes a baseline of network services that can be leveraged and expanded to enable the next generation of classroom learning environment reforms.Ultimately, this expanded network presence can be used as a platform for future integrated child and family service delivery across regional, remote, urban and rural communities.
This blueprint also builds on recent state and Commonwealth investments in education provided through programs such as the Digital Education Revolution; the Building Education Revolution; the framework for educational outcomes proposed in the Melbourne Declaration; and state-based initiatives such as Victoria's Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD) eduSTAR ICT Design Model for Schools: Best Practice Guide for Implementing ICT into School Buildings work.
