    2019 ICT Management and Leadership Conference: Is comfort the enemy of progress?

    We often feel comfortable - it's good when everything is going well, and it’s natural to stop and enjoy it for a while. But technology doesn’t stop.

    Development is constant and the longer you wait the further things move ahead of you until you’re in a frantic race to catch up. Stepping out of our comfort zone requires extra effort, energy and determination. And with it comes the risk of failure… what if we get it wrong? What if we look silly? Will it be worth it in the end? Will I stand alone? What if I fail?

    But what if it succeeds and helps ICT delivery? If we are going to strive for progress, whether professionally or personally, we have to get comfortable with the idea of being uncomfortable.

    The annual mobile device showcase allows vendors to present their offerings to members of VINE. For members, it is a one stop showcase to have a peak at the device offering in one location. Feedback from both attendees and vendors is that the showcase day is not to be missed. 
     

    In 2019 the device showcase is complimented by vendors presenting on Community Engagement. This is an area of core significance to all schools. The topic covers a number of areas such as: 

    • policy including privacy, enrolment agreements and parent communication policy 

    • academic reporting – progressive and end of semester 

    • approvals including excursions, camps and policies 

    • updating of data 

    • general communication. 

    As has become the tradition at the showcase, the day finishes with drinks/nibbles at the Principal's Residence followed by dinner at Swipers Gully Restaurant. Please sign up for the dinner session as well as the day if you intend to stay for dinner.

    Schools take advantage of managed services many different ways. From the small outsourcing of a firewall as a project, 1:1 device maintenance and servicing, to the total outsourcing of IT function within a school are three examples. How are managed services appropriate to an organisation? In some ways this can be a controversial topic within IT in schools. It is also an area where IT and the financial administration of the school work closely together.

    Hence the potential of this meeting being a joint VINE/ASBA event. ASBA - Australian School Bursars association.

    The program for the day will be provided closer to the event date. Add this date to your calendar so you don't forget about the meeting.
