REDMOND, Wash., June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Synology America Corp., a leader in network attached storage servers, today released the success story from Saratoga High School in enabling a digital classroom.
The success story shows how one leading high school in Saratoga, CA has successfully used their DiskStation to help connect teachers and students, augmenting their existing teaching tools. Saratoga High was able to integrate their DS209 into their existing network, requiring little IT expertise. In addition to not requiring additional IT resources to set up, the affordable DiskStation fit within their budgetary constraints.
In particular, the World Language Department has used the DiskStation to good effect to facilitate communication between teachers and students, enabling them to share information easily.
"Teachers can create their teaching portfolios and store the audio, photos, and video files in Synology DiskStation so students can access the files," said Mariam Fan, a Chinese teacher at Saratoga High. "We can use our teaching portfolios to give instructions and create podcasts and blogs to promote interactive communication with our students and among students from other classes. We can assess students' progress using student electronic portfolios during the school year and at the end of each semester."
Synology hopes this real-world example will aid educational decision-makers in finding low-power, affordable, and appropriate solutions for their situations. To further assist them in their search, Synology has also posted a white paper demonstrating how network attached storage can help schools address their specific needs.
