Several NDIT teams including EduTech, Collaboration Technologies, Security and Network have built strong relationships with North Dakota’s school districts over the years. Recent efforts include bolstering cybersecurity with anti-malware provided at no cost to schools. The state also boasts one of the highest density broadband networks in the country with more than 90% connectivity statewide. And annual training and professional development opportunities through EduTech are a cornerstone to the state’s national leadership in computer science and cybersecurity education under the K-20W Initiative.
These strong partnerships recently yielded an opportunity for New England Public Schools to use a cutting-edge automation tool to configure 225 laptops for their students. The joint effort demonstrates the value of technology from a time and cost savings perspective, the innovative approaches schools are taking to support e-learning, and the positive impact the NDIT team is having on North Dakota’s students during the pandemic.
