As new and emerging technologies are introduced into schools, internet technology (IT) infrastructure, hardware, and support needs continue to grow. Coupled with these demands is the unknown nature of precisely how new and emerging technologies affect learning and collaboration in the classroom. This paper will investigate the use of OpenPTrack (OPT), an open-source person-tracking system, in classrooms at two different school sites: University Lab School and Esperanza Prep. Through these two cases we discuss the barriers presented by the use of emerging technologies in K-12 schools including IT needs, staff support, and pre-existing institutional structures.
