Schools ID top web filter needs

A recent Lightspeed Systems campaign sought to identify the top features districts want in a web filter. Through print advertising, social media, and emails, Lightspeed Systems asked districts to visit a blog and make a comment about what they want from a web filter.

Top needs identified through the blog comments include: flexible policies, mobility, collaborative opportunities, access to YouTube videos, access to other Web 2.0 and dynamic content, greater teacher controls, easy management, and affordability.
