    Hi guys,

    I want to ask you what methods are used in your schools to protect kids who are using the school computers and the internet?
    I was thinking about recommending some software to my headmaster but first I need to find the best one that will fit to the school reality.

    Thanks for any suggestion in advance

    Our school has a VERY strict blocker (as in, Google is restricted because of where it could lead).

    Our school has the standard firewall, but most kids can get around it. They and their parents sign an acceptable use policy though.

    In the school I was doing my internships they had PCWebControl http://www.pcwebcontrol.com/ and it was blocking some websites and making reports so teachers could see what was going on on the computers
