Currently, our school is pretty much wide open to what the students can do at school with their personal laptops or on school computers. They chat (often in class), download music, movies and videos and can visit any site that they want for the most part (not exactly what I would allow but the head of tech seems fine with this).
We're a PK-12 private school so most of our high school students have their own laptops.
Because these activities has killed our bandwidth, we're finally looking at blocking some of these sites. I'm just wondering what sites and applications does your school block?
Our quick list is:
1) File sharing programs/P2P
2) Messenger/chat programs
3) Bit torrent
Thanks for any other suggestions that you may have!
