Even with Bloxx set up nicely and PCE running with all options set - unless you go whitelist, they'll always find ways. No home supervision.
We run NetSupport across our suites...that's funny. Yesterday..a class of 30, 20 screens with breasts on. Well, there's another for the blocklist...
EDIT: Oh yes...Shrek research...that was hilarious. Page 3, google images...Shrek getting head...Oooookkk....

The best you can hope for with google images et al is force safesearch, term checking and deep URL inspection - it is remarkably hard to get even a glimpse of porn with those 3 restrictions in place. Not advocating a lack of supervision, but realistically the technical measures have to be good as well.

Though Google SafeSearch was cookie based now?
Though think this was an excuse from our LEA at the time for why they had banned it outright..

Indeed. We're FE and we have users from age 14 to about 90. We also teach a very wide range of subjects, including NVQ beauty therapy. To a beauty therapist, the word "facial" is a normal part of their work vocabulary. Sadly, the same is not true for quite a lot of other internet users ...

Bloxx/PCE enforce strict safesearch..it's pretty good.
Google annoys the tits off me though... /gwt is a filterbusting pain..iGoogle is a pain..so much stuff on there is a pain...I want JUST the search engine..

@bendy: gwt? pce? hablo espanyol?
@gatt: dunno but "force safesearch" still works for me
@srochford: can't you set different policies for FE etc.?

We can, but if a hard working, "normal" student who's studying beauty therapy goes searching for "facial" then they can quite innocently get stuff they didn't want. We don't have a huge amount of control over the filtering (we use the Janet service which is fairly basic) and while it won't let through some of the stuff we would get if we had no filter it still lets through some stuff which you wouldn't want.
