How do you get students hooked on Cisco?


1. 2. 3. You must market your academy inside the classroom You must market your academy outside the classroom Guidance staff and administrators must be supportive

So, what should we be doing in the classroom?


To build rigor you need to build Relationships! Nobody can argue that Cisco programs (and other IT programs) arent rigorous. If you want your students to buy into your program and the rigor you must first build a relationship with the students. Bring in guest speakers from the field.

Customizing your crib


Equipment
A better lab experience translates to better relationships with students (no, packet tracer doesnt count!) Each student has ownership in a computer and a rack of routers/switches

Posters/Models of important concepts OSI Model, router configs, etc. Allow students to use reference materials

14

Grading
Rather than focus grades on chapter tests emphasize the practical skills-based nature of the class
Students are allowed to retake tests.
Students spend almost an equivalent amount of time in lab as lecture Skills exam is weighted the same as a semester final Give bonus points for students who bring in real life articles about computer networking Give bonus points for students who do reports on topics outside of the curriculum Let them explore features in Packet Tracer and then apply them to real gear

15

Class Exposure
Get the students out of the classroom and talking to others Students need to perform out of class jobs Discussion Topic What can we do together as a Cisco Networking Academy Community?

16

Be a Role Model
Take and pass your certification exams
Turn your classroom into a certification incubator posters of concepts that will be seen daily

2010 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.

17

In my opinion
If you really want to succeed in the 21st century you must be able to accept change and do things differently.
Build relationships with your students.

Sell and market your program.


Posters Brochures Teach in a style that motivates students and keeps students coming back for more. Use Packet Tracers Simulation Feature Use games and competitions Make your course practical! Use realistic case studies and samples
