Students draw their network diagram Plenary - Ask them how they could make the network more reliable Homework idea: Write a report/Email to the headteacher on how to improve the network.

The Guided Tour Ask your technician or network administrator to give you a tour or as a teacher find out what equipment is in the building Students can bring along Chromebooks or pen and paper Make sure you point out highlights such as network switches, routers, wireless access points etc
