Introduction from one of my white papers ‘Content Filtering in Schools: Best Practices for K-12’. Some of my customers call it the infamous ‘Booby Paper’. Find out why! You can read the full White Paper online at http://www.cadinc.com/news/press/pr_20060503_contentfilteringinschools.htm
“I don’t care if they see boobies!” Yes, it was just as silly the first time I accidentally blurted that out, but it got the point across. That comment embodies the purpose of this document- to bring attention to the full spectrum of risks and considerations of Internet usage in schools. … I’ve come to realize that there is a large communication gap between the educators who have to deal with these issues in the classroom and the technologists who have to enforce policies behind the scenes. Included is relevant information also for parents, so they may be aware of these issues and can remain pro-actively involved in their children’s’ ‘virtual’ life.
