    This is a point that I have raised here. I know that UltraSurf can bypass proxy servers so I have ensured that Sophos blocks UltraSurf and it's ilk but I also know there are certain 6th Form students that will have UltraSurf installed on their laptops before they even bring them in.

    I think BYOD depends on which "flavour" of it you go for, I see two main camps...

    1) provide a standard desktop on someone else's device, pretty much a VDI project
    2) turn everything web-based e.g. VLE, Google Apps \ Office 365 etc

    I'm more in the 2nd one than the first at present as VDI is so pricey to implement, as it stands I've got the usual guest Wi-Fi VLAN and Palo Alto to keep P2P etc in check. Ruckus does client isolation so one BYOD laptop cna't talk to another within the same network.

Education is key to stopping these activities, however monitoring internet use will also identify when students go off the rails. Schools can not monitor 3G connections. So to my mind, allowing BYOD should help reduce these risks rather than increase them.

    Before launch I hope to get various members of the school community together to write a suitable user policy. It is my belief that if we involve students in the decision making, they will more likely stick to its outcomes.
    I know ... I am playing Devil's Advocate here to try to identify a few key processes and facts.

    This could be interesting in terms of BYOD - although it would mean leaving data on third party machines

    VMware Mirage (Formerly Wanova)

    Although with VDI these days BYOD could be implemented so easily. Including connect from anywhere etc

    VMware View currently has client for - Windows, OSX, Ubuntu Linux, IOS and Android - with there being an open source version which has been complied to run on loads of other OS's - including the Raspberry PI

    Within your school, who signs off that the education is both suitable and effective?

    We have the captive portal but there isnt any option to connect it to AD
    We have an Aruba system here.
    We're connected to AD via a RADIUS server and this is how staff and students authenticate to use their personal devices, and it also allows us to manage accounts for 'true' guests locally on the controller.

    I suspect they've read an article on the BBC that says mauve is the best colour for BYOD as it has the most RAM. And that was the beginning and ending of their training, unless the LA sponsored a day for them to listen to someone who last stepped into a classroom in the 80s and who thinks "Bring your Own Desktop" is a way of getting woodwork back on the curriculum wax lyrical about it.

    Are you really suggesting that headteachers, teachers and governors aren't qualified to come up with an adequate educational program to teach about cybersecurity and cyberbullying ?
    Who is then? The LA?
