First post! Really pleased to have found this community!
One of the problems I run into frequently is how to deal with school IT technicians when trying to innovate using social media, digital video etc in lessons. I have a lot of respect for the work they do - they do a good job at keeping the school network running on an extremely limited budget. But where a teacher might see the educational benefits from streaming video, or using students' own devices on the school wireless network, an IT technician may see extra work or a potential headache.
Any tips for working productively with school network managers would be appreciated!
