More details on what we are looking for:
You’re well educated and an innovator. You have a strong educational and experiential background in technology. You can speak as easily about how different devices interface on the network as you can about the ways in which programming skills would enable students to solve community problems in New York City. On your own time, you enjoy connecting with the tech community and learning about new discoveries and initiatives at a NYCIST meeting, Brooklyn Tech Meetup or New York Tech Day.
You’re dynamic and creative. You know how to strike the balance between fostering creativity in the already innovative faculty member and in the Oxfordian who loves his/her library of books, a pen, and paper. Your love of discovery through tinkering and playing inspires faculty to see the possibilities in using technology to expand their repertoire of teaching tools. Your love of discovery through tinkering and playing includes developing programming and app creation courses in your department and helping faculty to see the possibilities in using technology to expand their repertoire of teaching tools.
You’re energized by things like Google Glass, iPads, and Server Virtualization, and you can collaborate with others to implement these devices in our community. You enjoy and look forward to the next new product and finding ways to incorporate these things in classroom work and field experience for students. You bring these possibilities to faculty in exciting venues like our already ongoing Appy Hours. You are someone who enjoys invention.
You’re good at making the ship sail (hardware, software, and smooth integration). You are well-versed in Active Directory, Server Virtualization, Airwatch MDM, Learning Management Systems, Google apps for Education and Blackbaud, and you know how to make these things interface and work smoothly. You also know the answer to the question of whether an iPad school should make the systems go “all Mac” or stay PC/Mac.
