EMBC - filtering - not fit for purpose?
This morning one of our post-16 art students did a search for celtic roundhouses.
He used Google image search, as you might do yourselves, and got a nice page full of images of roundhouses back. Great. Going well so far.
But, click on any one of them and he got this:
Our RBC - EMBC - has apparently decided that parts of Google is an anonymous proxy website and therefore the results of certain searches can be blocked.
Oh for the love of pete! :mad:
I know schools internet access needs to be filtered, but there's filtered and there's over filtered. And when teaching and learning is impacted, I'd definately say that someone somewhere has seriously overstepped the mark!
Anybody else in the EMBC region getting this problem or have issues where the filtering service gets seriously in the way of ordinary teaching?
