Implementing an Effective Desktop Security Policy
As schools continue to provide better access to computer hardware, networks and internet resources, IT staff and classroom teachers alike face new challenges. IT staff need to manage the challenges posed by computer labs and school networks as well as effectively control both new software deployment and user access. Teachers need to manage students who are using their computers in a lab or multi desktop classroom to ensure that their time is spent focused on learning and their assigned tasks. Children want to learn and often the best way is to experiment. Unfortunately lab computers may be used four or five times per day for different classes and as such, they are resources that schools cannot afford to allow to endure too much practical experimentation.
