Procedures for managing
the school infrastructure have to cover all the hardware used in school
e.g. the computers, peripherals, the network infrastructure and all electronic
resources in use such as generic software tools (word processors etc)
subject specific resources (e.g. On-line content, Internet, CD ROMs and
subject specific software) management software (e.g. network management
software) and multimedia resources (e.g. clipart, pictures, sounds etc.)
which can be used in many subjects and contexts.
support for this infrastructure can mean the different between success
and failure and must figure highly in the management procedures.
In this section
some of the issues associated with managing infrastructure are explored.
