Implementing dynamic location-based Internet content filtering in your School Board

A session at OASBO ICT & IMPAC Winter Workshop 2013

Tuesday 26th February, 2013

2:15pm to 3:15pm (EST)

Mike Millar – Enterasys Systems Engineer
Jean Mickelson – Enterasys K12 Specialist
Norman Hartshorne – President Secure Links

Student access to the Internet is an absolute requirement to create, communicate, and collaborate, but to enable optimal access while protecting students it takes a multi-strategy approach that includes training, monitoring, and flexible controls. Literally, a billion new web pages spring up every day, and according to Google, 9,500 of them are malicious. To complicate matters, web access needs to be tailored by device, student, and location, among other factors. Attend this seminar to learn how your school board can successfully manage Internet access to a vast number of devices in an environment of diverse needs based on grade level, location, training and role.
Topics will include:
•How school boards are successfully managing web access involving both district- and student-owned devices.
•The role of mobile device management (MDM) within the school district.
•How location-based filtering works in the real world.
•How to implement flexible site and application enabling and blocking, rather than coarsely applying a blunt approach to block sites.
•How districts can allocate variable amounts of network bandwidth across different locations within the school depending on the educational needs.
