Tech Talks

As technology teams turn to remote learning, we’re checking in with customers to see how they’re navigating this new landscape with Lightspeed Systems®.

You can never have too much data. Fine-tuning that data to make it usable is crucial. We’re talking with the Executive Director of Network and Security from DeKalb County School District, Wade Barnes about how they are using data and reports from Lightspeed Systems® to save their district resources.

Some school districts we spoke to were more prepared than others for distance learning. We talked with Steve Thomaschefsky from Waupaca School District, which moved more or less seamlessly into remote learning- hear from him about the one Lightspeed tool he wished he had.

Preparing for the unknown this fall is what many school IT teams will be working on over the summer. We’re talking with Bob Hilinksi from Upper Darby School District in Pennsylvania to learn how they will be ready for the fall thanks to Lightspeed Systems.

Hear from Robert about how Lightspeed Alert™ is a critical feature in protecting students during distance learning.

Hear from Joe on how their district rolled out devices and remote filtering and how they’re planning for continued distance learning in 2021.

“I’ve seen a slight uptick in [Lightspeed Alert] with kids being home more often. It’s nice to alert the necessary people to help for that.”
