One of the frustrating things about having 1:1 devices in the classroom is that students try to use their devices for activities that don’t pertain to class. We have all had students who are using social media, playing games, and shopping during class time. Although, one of the most common things that students do on their computers is visit YouTube. They LOVE watching videos, so keeping them off of YouTube can be difficult.

But thankfully, there is a solution to keep your students on track.

How to Keep Students off of YouTube

So, you might be wondering, how do I keep my students away from the grasps of YouTube. It is pretty simple really. You need a classroom management software system. By having classroom management software, you can create a web filter that blocks your students from navigating to YouTube. 

Web Filters and Netop Vision

Netop Vision’s web filter works as a white list. A white list is a list of sites that students are allowed to visit rather than a list of sites they cannot visit. This helps block sites other than just YouTube! When you create a white list, you are only allowing your students to get on sites that you deem acceptable. You won’t have to think of all the sites you want your students to not visit and then block those sites. Talk about a time saver!

 Try the Web Filter for Yourself  

You can try out Vision’s web filter for yourself by downloading a free trial of Vision! As always, if you need any help getting the web filter going, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
