The Barton Malow Technology team implemented state-of-the-art technology upgrades within Brighton Area Schools as part of a district-wide K12 technology improvement project. Upgrades focused on classroom technology enhancements, video surveillance, and access controls. Others included the addition of collaborative learning environments, district-wide wireless infrastructure, an IP telephone system, 10G network infrastructure, cabling infrastructure, and a network video distribution system.
The additions came following a visionary session with more than 20 Brighton Area Schools teachers, staff, and community members. Over 30 teachers also participated in pilot programs featuring various technology upgrades and K12 classroom configurations. Ultimately, the project was so impressive that Brighton Area Schools was selected to host the annual MIGoogle Conference, a two-day event attended by hundreds of Michigan educators to learn about innovative uses for Google tools in the classroom.
