"streaming video and audio are blocked on the network. It is a district-wide filter - it is apparently a safeguard because of the bandwidth it takes up."
This is constantly being told to me...I can't listen to various podcasts, etc. and the principals are wanting to have their teachers and students start working with video and audio podcasting this upcoming year. How are other people getting around the issue of filters...or maybe my question is, what should I be telling the Technology Director that will maybe convince her to change some of the safeguards.
