WISD Technology Department maintains a computer lab of 20 desktop PCs, for reservation by interested parties. The Computer Lab is located in the WISD's Teaching and Learning Center at 1819 S. Wagner Rd, Ann Arbor, MI, near the main conference center.
Fees for using the technology lab will be assessed as follows:
The WISD Technology Lab contains 20 Dell Optiplex 390 computers operating at 3.1 GHz. Each contains 4 GB of RAM and approximately 160GB of free space available on the hard drive. They operate using Windows 7 Pro. They are configured as 19 student workstations with a teacher workstation located at the front of the class. The Teacher Workstation is connected to a ceiling-mounted LCD projector and the room's audio system via the WISD A/V backbone. Additional connections are available for laptops via HDMI. WISD does not provide VGA->HDMI convertors, so, if needed, you will need to provide your own (If your laptop has a HDMI port, you will be fine). Audio is provided by the room's built-in speaker system through the teacher workstation.
PCs have the following software installed:
All PCs are configured with MS Forefront AntiVirus and AntiMalware protection, which cannot be disabled.
If you have never presented using the WISD Technology Laboratory, we highly recommend that you make an appointment with a technology staff member to visit the lab prior to the start of your class or seminar. Technology can be reached by calling the Technology Help Desk number at 734-994-8100 x 1286.
General Public: The lab can be scheduled by contacting WISD Event Services at 734-994-8100 x 1315 or 1222.
WISD Staff: In your Outlook Calendar, please schedule a new meeting that includes the ComputerLab as a resource or room. If you need specific software for the class/event, please follow up by submitting a CSR describing what you need. Technology needs at least a week to turn around special software installs in the Computer Lab.
Technology Services will approve your reservation or request that you pick an alternate time if the lab has been previously reserved for that time.
Hours: The Computer Lab is available from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday, except for legal Holidays or on days when the WISD is closed due to emergency (weather, etc.). Saturday sessions can sometimes be scheduled through WISD Event Services, but be advised that on Saturday WISD Technology Services are not available.
Your adherence to these procedures and responsibilities is appreciated and helps the facility and staff to better serve the community. Please direct any questions to the Technology Department at 734-994-8100 x 1286.
