  • Yesterday, I covered saving money by server virtualisation. Today, let’s go outside of the server room and consider all of the computers right around you school. With the rapid growth in the number of computers (an average secondary school has more than 300 according the recent research) has also come a rapid growth in the electricity bills associated with them. However, that’s often invisible to the ICT team in the school, because the energy bills come from some other budget in the school, not from the ICT budget (I can imagine a few of you saying “Phew!” at this point)But what about making some changes to reduce the energy usage – because not only would it help your overall school budget – and perhaps use it as an opportunity to demonstrate that an investment in parts of your ICT budget can save significant amounts of school budget.The tip is to use upgrade your workstations to a later version of Windows – if you upgrade to Windows 7, you will find that you can typically save between £23 and £46 per computer per year. So an ‘average’ secondary school is going to save up to £10,000 a year, and a primary school up to £3,000.The reason is that within Windows 7 the standard configuration of Windows is set to use the power saving features more often, and especially during periods of low or non-activity. For example, Windows 7 makes more use of:Switching off the display after inactivity, reducing the monitor power usage Using Sleep mode, to put the PC into an extremely low-power mode, but with rapid restart Using Hibernate mode, to put the PC into a zero-power mode, with rapid restart And within Windows 7 it is easier to manage this across your whole set of PCs at once – as a network manager, you can make a Group Policy change on power settings (eg changing how many minutes of inactivity to allow before switching off the display) to every machine in the school with one setting change. In Windows XP you may have to visit every single machine to make a change.Dave Coleman, Network Manager at Twynham School, has worked to minimise the electricity bills in his school using Windows 7, and is potentially going to save this promises to pay back the decision to upgrade very quickly. In Dave’s case, he found out the energy usage of his PCs and monitors from a bit of Internet searching, but perhaps an easier way is to pop into B&amp;Q or Homebase and pick up a power monitor plug. They typically cost a tenner, and if you plug it into the wall, and plug your computer and/or monitor into it, you can very quickly see how much money they cost to run on an hourly, daily or weekly basis. A couple of days of research should help you to estimate your potential savings.You can read a lot more about this in the PC Pro report from 2007, when the power saving settings were first introduced in Windows Vista. And the report will help you to work out your own power savings in your school.After all, if you can go to your head teacher and explain that a software upgrade could save you more money in the first year than it will cost, it’s a pretty compelling case!
  • My next tip is to think about the energy usage of your computers in school. According to the latest research from BESA, primary schools have an average of 50 computers per school, and secondary schools have an average of 328 – a huge increase over a decade ago, and also one of the reasons why schools are now typically spending more on energy than on ICT. As well as the big savings that can be made on servers, and through more effective power management settings on your computers, it is worth considering energy usage when you replace your computers.In the past, schools have considered thin clients, but have recognised that there are limitations with their use – for example, with complex multimedia applications, or for advanced graphic design work. But there are now things that you can do that very effectively reduce your school’s electricity bill and give you a fully functioning computer.The cost savings possible mean that this is something you should consider as you replace or buy new computers – it wouldn’t make financial sense to throw out existing computers that don’t need replacing yet.Switch to laptopsAlthough laptops have other benefits of mobility and the chance to use them at home, one of the things that’s been rarely discussed is the fact that they use less power. A power supply for a laptop is typically rated at 50-70 watts (Although it’s important to say “YMMV” here – Your Mileage May Vary!), which is significantly lower than a typical desktop PC.So as you bring more laptops into your school, and replace old desktops, you are reducing your electricity bill. Savings will vary depending on your current computers, and the easiest way to work it out could be to plug in a power monitor.Switch to lower power computersA number of manufacturers have introduced lower-power desktop computers, which are based on conventional desktop computer design. The example I used when talking at BETT was the RM ecoquiet range, which are full desktop PCs consuming less energy than a traditional lightbulb. The picture on the right is a bit small to see, but it shows a computer and a lamp plugged into power monitors, and the complete PC including the monitor is using less than 50w. You can read an independent review of the ecoquiet range on Merlin John’s blog.Switch to ultra-mini, lower power computersOne step further is to switch to a different format, ultra-low power desktop. PARS Technology have a device called the I-Cute 270Q, which runs Windows 7 well, has 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard disk, but only uses 18 watts of power. I’m sure we’ll see more of these kind of devices in the future, as they are not only energy-efficient, but also space-efficient. In your classroom, they have a practical advantage, because you can just attach it to the back of the monitor (it’s the little black box in the picture on the left) and get rid of the computer boxes on top of, or underneath, desks. The monitor, keyboard and mice plug into the system (which has 3 USB ports and an SD Card reader), and you’ve got yourself a very neat, fully functioning PC.
  • So far, the first three money savings tips could save a secondary school over £100,000 over three years (and a primary school £20-£25,000). And this tip doesn’t shirk at saving money either, but I think it has further implications, because it brings opportunities to more fundamentally change the way that things in happen in your school – with lifelong savings and transformation opportunities. But enough waffle, on to the detail…Change the way your staff communicate and teachBy a combination of Office Communications Server, and Office Live Meeting, there are a number of schools who’ve discovered that they can save money, as well as add new facilities in school.Here’s my summary of the two systems in a nutshell:Office Communications Server (OCS) gives you internet phone calls within and outside of school, a conference calling system, secure instant messaging within your school and/or local authority and remote desktop sharing. Read more about OCS on our websiteOffice Live Meeting adds the ability to deliver training or lesson materials through any software, including PowerPoint, to groups (eg students) who can be anywhere as long as they have an Internet connection. Read more about Office Live Meeting on our websiteBy putting these two things together, you have a way of managing your school communications more effectively, and it also gives you ways to switch around your teaching resources. For example, you can use it to deliver a lesson to students across a number of schools at the same time (eg where you have small groups of students in individual schools, who are currently moving between schools for courses), or where you have a cover lesson, and an experienced subject teacher is used to start the lesson off, and then the lesson is managed by a cover supervisor.The availability of instant messages, but within the secure context of your own school only, means that you can allow teacher-to-teacher messaging, or student support outside of lesson hours, without having to have your staff and students using public systems like Windows Live Messenger. (And because you control the system, you can keep a record of all conversations).Steven Gillott, at Wootton Bassett School in Wiltshire, used OCS and Live Meeting to improve staff-to-staff communication, allowing staff to choose the right medium – phone, mobile, instant message, email or video conferencing – at the right time. And it also allows staff to quickly escalate a conversation, by bringing in others, or changing from an IM Chat to a full video conference. The school also use it to help deliver more flexible accelerated learning for their students, and the changes that it allows in covering lessons means that they are saving between £160 and £180 per day per supply teacher – at the same time as allowing greater educational continuity.Wootton Bassett School worked with Microsoft partner Eurodata Systems to implement their system, and you can read more about it in the case study on their website
  • Part five of the series of Top 10 ICT Money Saving Tips for schools, based on my BETT 2010 presentation.Every time we release a new version of our software, and you upgrade to it, it is well worth doing a review of what extra features it includes that may be able to save you money. Typically I find more and more facilities in Office that mean I need less third party software.One example for me is that I found that I could use PowerPoint to create a picture with text, images and gradients, and then save it as a jpeg (just Group the items, and right click for “Save As Picture”). It means that I don’t use Photoshop anymore, because that was the main use I had for it. The previous version of the header graphic for this blog was created in Photoshop, this one was created in PowerPoint.Remote Access to your school networkThe example that I used at BETT was the capabilities built into the latest release of Windows – Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 – which allow you to improve secure remote access to your network from outside of the school. Although remote access used to be something that was only used by big businesses, it has become increasingly common for secondary schools to need secure access to the school network for staff working from home, or when they are at meetings at the local authority. In fact Becta’s advice for schools in Keeping data secure, safe and legal now stipulates that staff should not have copies of sensitive pupil data on their own laptops even when off-site, but always connect securely to the school network to get access (eg for SIMS access).Traditionally, this has been done by use a Virtual Private Network (VPN), which means a combination of special hardware on your network, and special software installed on your computers. But if you’re updating to Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 you can do away with all of this additional software and hardware, and use the in-built capabilities of Windows, called DirectAccess, to create a secure and seamless connection. The potential money saving here is not just in hardware and software costs, but also in the support costs that VPNs require, and the additional management time needed to maintain another system in your school.You can find out more about DirectAccess on this blog postRemoving the need for other software licences – and saving up to £25,000Dean Close School, in Cheltenham, were one of the early adopters of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, and since they have been using it, they’ve found a number of ways it can save them money – including using DirectAccess above. They also have their eye on their Citrix software, which is used for staff and students to get remote access to their software. By using DirectAccess, the school will rely less on the Citrix software it currently uses to manage information and access. Nyall Monkton, the school’s IT Manager expects to save £15,000-£25,000 a year by switching to using Direct Access instead of Citrix.You can read more about what Dean Close School have done in their case study, which was done with their Microsoft partner, Bechtle.
  • Yes, the one you thought you’d never see from me in this list of Top 10 ICT Money Saving tips! But here it is…Did you know that you can buy a subscription called the MSDN AA (Trivia: MSDN AA stands for Microsoft Developer Network Academic Alliance). And the schools version is called High School AA. (Move along, no comedy to see here)In a nutshell, what it allows you to do is use a range of software for teaching and learning purposes in IT, design, art, maths and science, without having to buy the licences individually. And the software includes Expression Studio 2 (including Expression Web, Web, Blend, Media and Design), Visual Studio Professional and SQL Server [Detailed list]. AND you can provide it to your students for their homework assignments.All for £145 a year.At this point, I should reinforce the five words above “for teaching and learning purposes”, so you can’t take use it for your SQL Server for MIS. It’s for teaching and learning only. And, Yes, we have understood that a school is all about teaching and learning, but I guess you’ll realise that we’ve written the rules in a very specific way to make sure that what we’re supporting is classroom use, not you running your whole school ICT system on MSDN AA software.The scheme also provides a range of support and training resources for teachers on the MSDN AA Faculty Connection web site. (To save you using your Babel fish, I’ll point out that K-12 on this US site means ‘schools’)So if you are licensing any of the software above, or you’re using an alternative product (pretty likely with the Expressions Design or Expressions Web suite), then there’s a potential (big) saving for you.You can find out more about MSDN AA on the Microsoft website.And a final bonus. If you already have a School Agreement subscription, then you’ve already got a free subscription to MSDN AA included! You may just need to activate it on the website
  • POWER SAVING  Go to Windows 7 and Save 25-50Euros per year /computerThe tip is to use upgrade your workstations to a later version of Windows – if you upgrade to Windows 7, you will find that you can typically save between £23 and £46 per computer per year.
