Mobile computing offers many educational benefits, including equal access to technology for all students, constructive learning opportunities after school hours, increased teacher-student communication, and improvement in technology skills. However, when school-issued devices leave the network, both the computers and the users can be exposed to harmful content, and safety and security risks. Districts are responsible for what happens on school-issued devices.
Lightspeed Systems' Web Access Manager with Guide Mobile Filter offers intelligent, cross-platform Internet filtering that enables districts to extend network policies to users and devices off the network to maintain security, meet CIPA compliance, prevent cyberbullying, enforce acceptable use policies, and protect students from inappropriate content -- without hindering 21st century learning. Additionally, the company's Guide Browser App, another feature of Web Access Manager, enables schools to filter iPad™, iPhone® and iPod touch® devices.
