Students Personal Laptops
My school wants to see every student with a laptop in lessons. :eek:
They wanted to start a scheme where the parents pay for this, as the school has no money.
The parents have politely declined this, stating (mostly) that their son/daughter already has a laptop at home.
SLTís response to this was to ask me why we canít allow students to bring their own devices in to school and access the internet (and VLE) through the wireless.
I have explained that it is a terrible idea, etc, etc, but I can only come up with a few technical issues with the concept: I know that I can secure the wireless pretty tight, but my concern is the myriad of empty wall sockets across the school allowing access to my un-VLANíd flat network.
MY question is...
Does anyone here allow students to use their own personal laptops in school?
If so, are there any modifications you make to the laptop or your network?
If you donít currently do this, but were asked, what would you say?
