Internet Filtering

Qustodio - Computer Activity Monitoring.

If parents are looking for a piece of software that will still monitor all student activity on the computing device but also allow you to block and control activities - you can use Qustodio. Qustodio will also allow you to not just monitor one student but many students and their devices with the one parental account. Qustodio has the added benefit of working on devices running systems other than Windows. Find the document below which explains how to setup Qustodio on your son's school laptop.
