I am in a 1 to 1 district. When I found out that we were going this route I was excited for all the possible engaging lessons I could do with my students. However, now that we have been 1:1 since last year I have found many pitfalls. So many that I don't want the laptops in my classroom any more. I view them as more of a liability. My students have figured out how to get around the filters/nannyware and obsessively play games. I can not stop them. It is impossible. If I am constantly walking the room so that I can see their screens at all times there is no way I can see ALL screens ALL the time. We don't have a management software in place and the filters don't work. I have caught kids in all kinds of places on the internet that they should not be and issued consequences until I am blue in the face. I'm very tech savvy. So I know all the ways they try to hide that stuff. Then it just becomes a cat and mouse game. So I have given up on the laptops. The problem: I still want to use the laptops for lessons. But I don't know how to keep the kids from going into all the things that they should not be on when they are supposed to be working on a lesson. Should I just give up completely? Any strategies for this?
