As I mentioned yesterday, I have eleven computers, none terribly new. I struggle a little with a computer use policy that allows access for the Internet-less. Many of our students do not have access elsewhere. We are an Accelerated Reader school, so students need to use the computers for AR tests. It also seems reasonable to use for school assignments. Anything beyond that is an issue.
What I have decided is that I need a stricter policy and I have been reaching out to my fellow LMTs to see what they do. Most do what I describe above.
However, I hate to see a computer not being used. If we don't have students waiting to take tests or working on assignments, the computers would just sit there.
I suppose I need to think on what works for our situation. Quickly.
One of the first things that I noticed about this job was the much greater responsibility for setting policy.
