    Seems to work. [I HAVE told people this. I've also threatened to cut off their internet.]
    Brute force and ignorance is all very well but I need a reasoned argument, not threats

    If you're anything like I think you are, you've already tried every nice way of doing it.

    Sometimes you just have to make an example of someone.

    Have you got an AUP at your school Witch? Use that as they would be going against policy by letting someone else on as their login? Disable their account and plead ignorance and say oops you got an alert on the system as someone had tried to use their account and you were 'protecting them'?

    Change their password, no warnings. Then wait for them to come and see you to ask why their can't login. You can fully justify your reason.

    I do see their point though - on my curriculum network there really isn't much that should be kept safe so they merrily share passwords and log on as each other every day. I have explained the issues but it doesn't really sink in - if anyone can give me any pointers on what else I can say that would ring true with them I would be very grateful
    if you hear someones password move all their work to a temp area and tell them if i can hear it so can anyone and they could delete years of work

    Look to your policies. Report all breaches to your line manager/SLT and let them deal with it.

    Arrange a little demonstration for them. Move a load of their work into another folder. When they come to you saying "ohmygodohmygodohmygodallmyworkhasgone", you can say "Well, you shouldn't bloody share your password then, should you?"
