From implementing the latest instructional technology, including STEM and Internet of Things (IoT), to preparing for high-stakes online testing, IT management in primary/secondary K-12 education has its challenges.

Flipped, blended, hybrid, adaptive, competency-based, and personalized styles of learning can be straight-forward to implement with the right network tools. In the end, your IT resources are limited, so you need high-productivity tools to multiply your capabilities.
