Over the last twenty years, there has been dramatic change in the Print Management landscape. From the early 1990′s when System Administrators sought out obscure drivers from FTP sites; to the 2000′s when Support Engineers fought to deploy print infrastructure via Active Directory; to today, Print Management has never been more complex. The challenge for Network Managers lies in keeping pace with the explosive growth of “Bring Your Own Devices” (BYOD) – smartphones, laptops / notebooks and tablets. To help with this challenge, PaperCut developed capabilities that support BYOD Laptops with Web Print, and iOS devices with iOS printing support. Today we are excited to announce the next part of the mobile print management story… In PaperCut Version 13.5 we are integrating PaperCut’s Print Management solution with Google Cloud Print, catering for users of Chromebooks and Android devices.

Originally a fan of 1:1 device implementations for their ability to provide "equitable access to all students regardless of socioeconomic status" and reduce the "headache for the IT department," Sheninger is no longer sure such benefits outweigh the cons of homogenous devices: "I am beginning to think that 1:1 programs are not necessarily the best option for our students. My main reason for this shift in thought is why would we want to pigeonhole our students to one single device and/or platform?

How can my classroom go BYOT if my school does not? | TestSoup guest written by JD Ferries-Rowe, CIO and Debate Coach, Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School Much of the #byotchat writing on geekreflection.blogspot.com is focused on the big picture: how to implement for a school, why this paradigm shift works, and how it empowers students broadly. But there is a growing number of teachers who work in schools that do not have the infrastructure ready to go, who do not have a voice in the broad school policies, or who are already in a school that has settled on netbooks or iPads.
