Welcome

Welcome back to term two! We have been very busy in the past three months and not only won a coveted industry title, but have also attended and sponsored a number of educational conferences.

Greg Strachan

I am very proud to announce that we won the Microsoft Education Partner of the Year 2017 (this is the 2nd time in three years we have won this award).

Chief Executive Officer

“Beyond moving large schools to the cloud New Era IT worked closely with these schools to provide professional development around the use of these systems and toolsets enabling them to gain maximum value.”

The New Era team deservedly won this award because of their ongoing efforts to bring Microsoft Cloud Technologies into Education. New Era provide factual real world examples of large schools moving from onsite server infrastructure to a pure cloud-based platforms. Beyond moving large schools to the cloud we work closely with these schools to providing professional development around the use of these systems and toolsets enabling them to gain maximum value. We attended a number of fantastic conferences in term 1. SPANZ 2017, GAFE Summit 2017 at our own Aorere College to name a few and we are about to attend the APPA conference in Taupo. We are proud to sponsor such events and it’s fantastic to meet so many of our clients and supporters.

Term 1 Winner: Congratulations to Rosie Ellis from Kaiwaka School! You’re the winner of the Term One reader giveaway and an Acer Switch 12 Alpha.

As part of our ongoing cloud ICT development (it never ends!), we have recently brought on-board Orere School utilising the MoE cloud transformation model, making them one of the first in New Zealand. This has been very successful and we look forward to assisting many more schools on their cloud journey. Moving into term two we continue to grow and develop our teams, and deliver as much local support as possible to our clients. To this end, I am proud to announce two new team members who have recently joined us; Chris Haines the Auckland Regional Manager and Richard Hall our Regional Manager for the Lower North Island. Chris and Richard have a huge amount of experience between them and both are looking forward to working closely with our clients. Lastly I would like to wish everyone a great term two and of course, if there is anything you require around ICT please don’t hesitate to get in touch with the team.

What’s New?

With a new term now underway, we take a look back at the year so far. The New Era IT SPANZ Dinner The New Era SPANZ Dinner continues to be the highlight of the New Era social calendar with 2017 being no exception! This year’s dinner was particularly special with SPANZ marking it’s thirtieth year and New Era IT it’s twenty first. Eighty five New Era IT client principals were in attendance to mark the special occasion. Foxglove Bar and Kitchen in the heart of Wellington’s Queens Wharf was the venue for this year’s event. After pre-dinner drinks, the curtains were drawn and our guests joined us in the Queens Wharf Ballroom for dinner and a superb selection of wines. It was wonderful that the SPANZ executive team could join us for dinner this year.  We would like to extend our sincere thanks to the New Era client principals for your superb company.  The New Era SPANZ dinner tradition continues!

Welcome to Our New Clients in Term 2! New Era continues to be the ICT Support Provider of choice for a growing number of New Zealand schools. We’re excited to welcome five new schools to the New Era whanau in Term 2 along with twelve agreement upgrades and fourteen migrations to TotalCloud hosted services.

We are a Microsoft New Zealand Education Partner of the Year! CEO Greg Strachan spoke to Educator’s NZ about the award. “It’s fantastic to receive such a prestigious award from our long term partner Microsoft. ICT support can be a thankless task and often feedback is reserved for when things aren’t going to plan. This recognition acknowledges the team’s hard work and has particular significance for our staff that work with students and teachers every day.” “We’ve also been working hard for New Zealand schools, helping implement cloud technologies and ICT solutions.”

“New Era IT has been delivering and assisting schools with the move to public cloud technologies such as Office 365. Enabling Office 365 for staff and students is only the first step, and part of a holistic approach to technology use.” Greg says the future for New Era IT is to continue helping schools to reach for the cloud. “We aim to support the Ministry of Education’s Cloud Transformation project to ensure that the outcomes benefit the objectives of schools. For most schools these are financial but often around having an agile and stable network that does not constrain the creativity and innovation of New Zealand educators. We will continue to offer a service that understands the needs of schools at a pedagogical and practical level, so that teachers can get on with teaching and learning.”

Greg says the partnership with Microsoft helps New Era IT offer high quality Office 365 and Azure backed services to schools around New Zealand. “We have been engaged in the Microsoft Teacher Ambassador programme for many years and have seen the positive effect this has on the outcomes for teachers using Microsoft applications such as Office 365, Skype for Business, Azure and Power BI,” says Strachan. We’d like to take the opportunity to thank Microsoft, our clients and the New Era team for your part in our successful submission!

Demystifying the Cloud - Total Solutions for Schools

1 

What is the Cloud?

2 

What are the advantages of putting my stuff in the Cloud vs. an onsite solution?

The “Cloud” is a network of servers hosted online to deliver services to your school. Cloud servers can replace onsite servers, substituting what you already have at school through solutions such as Microsoft’s Azure platform or New Era’s EduServe. The cloud can also provide completely new ways of working such as collaboration with Google G Suite or Microsoft Office 365.

Firstly, it is cost - buying your own servers can be expensive. Eventually you will need to replace them. Additionally the cost of an uninterruptible power supply (UPS), cooling, backup systems and insurance can be expensive. Effective Cloud platforms provide scalability that is often costly for an equivalent on premise solution. Additionally, cloud platforms can offer efficiency and performance that is normally beyond the budget of most organisations. Cloud hardware itself is usually expensive and has additional redundancy to provide the performance that is required for whatever services you may need - now and into the future.

3  4 

What are the disadvantages to using it? The most obvious is connectivity. If your school is entirely reliant on the cloud and the internet connection goes down, you are without those services. You could connect via a cellular network or from home, however this can be inconvenient. Compatibility can also be an issue. Some applications are built to run on onsite servers or computers and don’t play nicely in the public cloud yet. This can be minimised by hosting older applications on a cloud server hosting platform such as EduServe or Microsoft Azure.

What is the difference between a public and private cloud? Public cloud tends to refer to the Microsoft Azure, Google and Amazons of this world. Most people are already using them in one form or another through email, file sharing or storage. Private Clouds are ones that are usually subscription based and run by organisations with a specific focus. This way they can tailor the cloud to suit the needs of the end client. New Era’s platform is an example of this as it is purpose built for schools and provides the “glue” for public cloud such as device management, identity services, core network functions and print cost recovery.

5  6  7 

Where are these Clouds? The public clouds are around the world. Relevant to New Zealand, there are no major public cloud platforms housed in New Zealand and no plans to do this. The closest is the Microsoft Azure platform in Sydney. It is important to note that major public cloud platforms will have multiple sites and share / back up data between them. A private cloud tends to be based in the territory it serves. Again, the New Era Cloud platform is based entirely in New Zealand.

So what is a Hybrid Cloud? For some time this referred to having onsite servers and utilising cloud applications. For example, you might use Microsoft Exchange email in the cloud, but have you files onsite. More and more, this is now referring to a private / public cloud hybrid. This allows a school to utilise the tools in both environments, but protects the agility and functionality for end-users.

Is my school data safe in the public cloud? According to the Department of Internal Affairs, the government is comfortable with schools housing data in the public cloud environments. However, it is really important to note that data stored on cloud services is governed by the laws of the country where it is stored. Because schools are ultimately responsible for their own students’ data, where information is stored should be an informed decision by the key school leaders in with consideration of these factors.

We’d like to answer your tricky cloud questions Whether your school is just getting started, or well on your way to the cloud, we’d love to discuss your journey and how we can help. Contact Tony or the team if you would like to know more.

The Learning Corner

A look at what’s happening in education technology and beyond this term

What’s New in Term 2?

The Windows 10 Creators Update is Here The Windows 10 Creators update was released on the 11th of April and is now available to New Zealand schools through the Microsoft Schools Agreement. The Creators Update is the next free update to Windows 10 and includes a number of new features. Dive Into 3D Now with the Creators Update, you have a new app called Paint 3D and access to an online creative community at Remix3D.com. The all-new Paint 3D allows you to create or modify 3D objects, easily change color or texture, or turn 2D images into 3D works of art.

Chat-based Workspace Microsoft Teams Now Available for Education Microsoft has announced that Microsoft Teams is now available for education customers. Teams is the chat-based workspace in Office 365 Education. Teams brings people, conversations and content— along with the tools schools need—together in one place so they can easily collaborate to achieve more. Because it’s built on Office 365, faculty, teachers and students benefit from integration with their familiar Office 365 apps and services. It delivers enterprise-grade security and compliance, and is extendible and customizable to fit the needs of every team. Teams will be rolled out gradually over the next few weeks to education tenants.

Inking on Photos & Maps Use Windows Ink to draw on pictures and videos in the Photos app to make them your own. Have fun, express yourself, and create something new with videos and photos that feature your personal touch. Draw on a 2D or 3D map in the Maps app and make it yours with Windows Ink. Create routes with turn-by-turn directions, measure the distance between any two points, add notes, and mark places to visit.  Night Light You can now lower the amount of blue light emitted from your PC at night with Night light. You can turn this functionality on or off in Settings. Speak to your client manager or the New Era IT team about making the most of new features with the Windows 10 Creators update for your school.

Do you have a story to tell? What’s happening in your classroom? Have you found an amazing app? Do you have a great tip or trick? We’d love to hear from you.

iOS Education Updates and Classroom 2.0 released With iOS 10.3, Apple have released Apple Classroom 2.0. Apple Classroom first shipped alongside iOS 9.3 and provided tools to help teachers in an iPad-based classroom.

If your story is featured in the next issue, we’ll send you an HP Roar Bluetooth Speaker valued at $160 RRP.

Apple Classroom provides a range of features including observing student screens, launching apps and URLs and locking student devices. AirDrop support means that teachers can now share a URL, photo, video or any file, to the entire class in one tap. This far exceeds the capabilities of the old Classroom Share Sheet extension that only allowed sending URLs to students. Now, anything that can be AirDropped can be sent to the entire class in one go.
