Material from classroom and home computersTeachers
When a school provides computer access to students, it becomes the responsibility
of the school to ensure that the computer systems are free of inappropriate
and offensive materials. Internet Filters are a good preventative measure,
but they are not always 100% effective, and the internet is not the only
way that unwanted material can arrive on servers or computer hard-drives.
Email, CDROM, floppy disk etc. are all methods by which students can introduce
A new parental control software product, Snitch,
is designed specifically to address this problem, in educational institutions
and at home. Snitch searches the computer's hard drive, checking for the
most common forms of adult material - images, movies, audio files, as well
as checking internet history, searching for obscene language, checking for
hidden files, and more.
