I agree with your implication that educating users is the best defense, but we put Net Nanny on ours, just to feel safer. It is often a pain in the neck and I don't recommend it. I look forward to other responses.

Hi, All,

South Burlington is leaping into the 1:1 world and issuing Windows laptops to 8th and 9th graders this year.

One question parents and School Board members have asked: Do we have software that we would recommend for parents who want to be able to manage/oversee what their kids do with the laptops at home?

Does anyone have any experience with such software? Any recommendations?

Personally, Id rather not rely on such software, but I think we may need to provide a list of possibilities.
