Personal Data Storage Dashboard Screenshots – Classroom technology, Student virtual lockers

Filed under: Dashboard Screenshots — dashboardspy @ 9:38 am

A fellow Dashboard Spy sent me these dashboard screenshots of a school district's system used to manage user disk storage. The idea is to create a virtual "locker" for each student to house their data on the school network. The management of the users and their storage details is done through a series of dashboards.

In this first dashboard screenshot, we see a list of users and red/green/yellow status lights.

Storage statistics are presented in this dashboard view using pie charts:

Event statistics and health status links lead to the following dashboards:


Defining the users is always a major part of the system. Here is a view of that aspect:

Statistics are charted in reporting dashboards such as this one:

Homework: The use and administration of technology in our school systems is a whole topic in itself. Browse these books on classroom technology. If you are involved with academic adminstration, don't miss this book on effective school district management. It's a valuable self-evaluation.

So what or who is The Dashboard Spy? As his about page states, The Dashboard Spy is just a guy interested in the design of enterprise dashboards. He could not find any executive dashboard design source books (or even screenshots of real business dashboards) and so set about creating his own. Finally convinced to post his extensive collection of dashboard screenshots online, he was amazed to find how popular it has become. If you have a nice screenshot of a digital dashboard, balanced scorecard, or any business intelligence graphic to share, please send an email to info _at_ Also check out The Dashboard Spy's favorite books.
