Refurbishment Informational School Architecture

Abstract : Large technological developments have occurred over the last three decades and their impacts are affecting the management of educational systems. With cloud computing, we now have an opportunity to reshape architectures. In this paper, we present a model-based redesign for next generation technologies, to act on educational management at a school level. This redesign model respects existing system architectures, increases and organizes school communication channels and includes an intelligence element. Key performance indicators were included in an intelligence element to allow peer benchmarking and provide a refresh referential. The new referential is included in the architecture core element and will allow schools to respond to the informational needs of next level analytical engines. This redesign model intends to create conditions to develop the holistic analyses of educational management. Based on Stafford Beer´s work, it is also in the intelligence element that the interaction with the school´s internal and external environments is developed. Stafford Beer´s Viable System Model (VSM) is a conceptual framework that can be used to diagnose and resctructure organizations. In this work, we used the VSM to remodel the informational architecture of school management in Portugal.
