We’re happy to see so many schools implementing Chromebook 1:1 initiatives. The ability to ensure that students have access to a computer for their educational needs is a huge boon, and there are lots of good things to say about Chromebooks. They’re agile, versatile, and inexpensive, making them a great choice for schools looking to provide devices to their students.
These Chromebook 1:1 programs ensure that every student has a computer for schoolwork, research, homework, and even non-education related internet access outside of school hours in some instances. Such initiatives help ensure equity in education, but they’re not without challenges.
Cipafilter and Chromebooks
It takes more than just handing out Chromebooks to make a good 1:1 initiative work well. Since these are school devices, you have to ensure that the internet is properly filtered, you have to block variety of applications, and you need to ensure that permissions scheduling works even when the device is on a non-school network. First and foremost, your Chromebooks are intended to aid education.
Cipafilter can do all of this and more; with seamless login, Google OAuth, and the ability to report on user traffic even when students use the device at home, managing Chromebooks is simple and easy. If you want to allow your students to use the device to watch movies or play games on the weekend, while restricting those applications during the school week, we’ve got you covered. If you want to give high schoolers more freedom than younger students, that’s no problem.
Cipafilter can help ensure that your Chromebooks are safe, secure, and ready to handle anything your students throw at it. If your school has a 1:1 program using Chromebooks, or is thinking of implementing one, we want to help. Drop us a line via this contact form, and we’ll schedule a time to discuss your needs, your plans, and how we can contribute to your success.
