I was talking with a few of the teachers today at the school that I work at complaining how difficult it to call parents, as we need to use the HOD's landline, staffroom one or personal cellphones and then get reimbursed, when i got to wondering why don't we just use a voip solution.
We all have laptops and wired connections in our classrooms.
So the question is how difficult would it be for the school to introduce a voip solution for about 50 teachers and set it up so each teacher gets allocated credit from a central admin?
I would ask the IT guy but he is pretty hopeless and it would be easier to go to him with a solution. We wouldn't even need phone in capabilities.
