It says that 40% is significant so presumably 39.99% is insignificant. The question is at 8:30 on Saturday am I working on my laptop or playing?
I was wondering how schools coped with storage of staff laptops? Do staff have to take them home or do they just get left around?
I can see many staff here refusing to take them home (quite rightly so) if they were prevented from using them at home. Secure storage in schools is often a problem and I wondered how other schools coped (I'm wondering if storage of portable data projectors is also a problem).
We have Kensington locks that chain them to the radiators, when the teachers can be bothered to do it. This is more to deter the sneak thief. Determined thieves who broke in at night would probably have bolt cutters. They knocked down the wall into the secure laptop store at the Primary School next door to us!
Our staff have to sign an agreement which says that whilst off-site it must be covered by their own insurance and any damage incurred whilst off-site must be claimed against that insurance.
Our staff aren't prevented from using the laptops at home just accessing the internet they have all of their documents with them as offline files.
The internet issue will be resolved very soon.
