Intelligent Use of Intelligent Building Solutions
Understanding the Available Solutions to Improve Your Campus and Learning Environments
Technology advances over the past decade have made learning environments more efficient, personalized, comfortable, and relevant to today’s society, but these advances come at a cost. Those costs are busting the budgets of school district and college and university operations, leaving little available for investments in sustainability.
This presentation will address some of the available programs and concerns with information technologies, helping facility administrators and managers better make use of these resources. These include:
- Sustainability is about much more than renewable power such as solar and wind. It is about building materials, furnishings, energy, and infrastructure. The presentation will introduce resources for these other renewable elements.
- Internet of Things (IoT) is used by most everyone in their everyday lives, including classroom and campus environments. These IoT components (tablets, laptops, and smartphones) in the hands of students pose not only bandwidth/demand loading problems, but create a cybersecurity threat to all devices on the campus network. You will gain an understanding how to recognize threat points, what technologies are available to help mitigate these threat points, and what the government is doing that schools can learn from.
- Special programs are in place through local, state, and federal government programs. Webinar attendees will learn about available rebate resources, programs and financing resources to obtain all types of sustainable solutions to help modernize facilities and campuses.
