"Enterasys is proud to recognize our K-12 customers who are integrating mobility into their school districts to help students and teachers collaborate and engage in ways they couldn't before. We congratulate Kimberly Area School District, Matanuska-Susitna Borough School District, Milton Hershey School and Moore County Schools on their achievements as they continue to be great examples of using technology in the classroom to further education."

Award Criteria:

Stimulate 24x7 Learning: To meet the demands of today's competitive global economy, schools must create lifetime learners. To promote this concept and qualify for the Enterasys Exemplary School Award, a school must institute a 1:1 or BYOD mobile learning environment. Facilitate Individual Instruction: Learning is not a one-size-fits-all environment. Networks and resources must be individualized to permit secure per-user, per-device policies to allow every student to individually learn and excel. Encourage Curricular Growth: To meet the demands of curricular change, a district must implement an infrastructure that readily adapts to curricular needs. Everyone learns differently, and the network must be prepared to meet the growing requirements of eBooks, streaming video and blended or flipped learning.
