    The sites that these games reside on are usually the type that have inappropriate advertising or worse.

    Children go to school to learn, the computers are a learning tool, if it gets compromised by malware then it cant be used for learning.

    We don't have trouble with Porn here either; Porn and very inapropriate stuff rarely makes it past the LEA filters. If any's likely to, I usually hear about it here first, block it locally, then inform the LEA - hence the value of a thread like this.

    well im surprised to hear a reply from all of you and i appreciate your constructiveness. well if any of you do not have trouble with porn why are you worried about it? im not trying to be rude and im not trying to complain all i want is to understand why you cant do a thourough check on gamesites that offer a challenge to the brains of young minds and set them out so they can be played on. of course there are advertisements but they can be blocked all pop-ups can be blocked its not that hard. thank you for reading and the feed back i appreciate it i just dont understand where you gentlemen and ladies are coming from.

    sincerely,

    Usually because it's an ever-moving target, and we have to keep on top of it or it catches us by surprise - this goes for pron, games sites, proxy tunnels, etc, etc.

    im not trying to be rude and im not trying to complain all i want is to understand why you cant do a thourough check on gamesites that offer a challenge to the brains of young minds and set them out so they can be played on. of course there are advertisements but they can be blocked all pop-ups can be blocked its not that hard. thank you for reading and the feed back i appreciate it i just dont understand where you gentlemen and ladies are coming from.
    Believe me, nothing would give me greater pleasure, but sadly time constraints just don't allow it. I think that's probably true for everybody here, we are all on the go all day just keeping things working, and don't have time for luxuries like this. Which is a shame, I would love to spend more time with students and less with metal, it just isn't feasible.

    sincerely,
    We are looking at doing this for our VLE, so that during "free time" the kids will be allowed to play on an "approved" list of games, i may also have some form of student forum which will decide whether certain games should be allowed or not as per our pupil engagement commitment.

    thank you also, and that is a great idea. as long as the games are sorts of challenging. and games approved by kids their own age would definately help as long as those kids have no trouble in school.

    sincerely,

    probably next term which will be April 20th +

    Maybe I should create a Wiki and try and get some other schools involved, we could create some form of Education Games Alliance for approved games.

    the EGA... hmmm sounds sophisticated. the thing is the games that would be on there would have to be puzzling ones yes puzzling but not boring maybe even get games tested by kids ages 5-12 13-18 you know? but it could eben possibly cut back on classroom disruptions. it would be a big program to. once school boards see that it is successful then every board will be clamoring for the program

    i think 'social types' answer is daft, if i finished work back when i went to school my teacher would ask me to start looking at the next assignment or check over and add things to the document at hand. not play space invaders.
