Even though some people question the value of computer rooms in schools, enough reasons exist why schools will still consider these facilities at times. Bear the following factors in mind when selecting a suitable classroom that you plan to convert into a computer room:
Size: for a computer room which holds 25 learner workstations, a server and peripherals, you need a venue of at least 60 sq m.
Capacity: if classrooms are limited, don’t do away with a library – rather consider a combined media centre.
Orientation: select a north-facing room (in the Southern Hemisphere) – it reduces sunlight glare and aircon costs.
Security: select a room with a concrete ceiling as a security measure against criminals.
Location: a room on the outer periphery of the school building is less secure than one on the inside, thus less suitable as an ICT venue.
