Not technically innovation but I thought I share this information here.
Over the break, we deployed a few minor changes to the Chrome browser running on district PCs or Chromebooks. Mainly for student accounts but also some for staff. The changes weren’t significant enough for us to communicate these in an all staff. But I thought I share here the changes we made:
The specific settings listed in this spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ghOnF2nRmFRZQXAjIoGqB1d2lSV9vvtnSs6Nr-Qb34I/edit#gid=0
In short. For staff, Chrome was made the default browser, safe browsing setting forced.
For students, same settings as for staff plus, disabled incognito mode, disabled developer tools, forced safe search, forced youtube safe mode, forced only @district287.org logins to Google Apps.
Some of these settings were in place for some groups of students before, but now they are in place for all student accounts.
