Boarding Schools - Internet Access for Students (and boarding staff)
Now that access to the Internet is required for such a lot of young people's education, entertainment and communication needs we are under pressure to allow ever more content through our filtering to end users own computers and devices.. a consequence of this is that the whole Internet experience suffers for everyone due to the load on our connection to the outside world.
How do other schools cope with these demands?
Do you have WiFi hotspots for staff and students and how do you make sure those users don't eat all of the available bandwidth?
I know some boarding schools have a policy of providing computers for students - and those are the only devices allowed to access the Internet.. it that commonplace?
It would be nice to compare notes with other schools..
