Chromebook management

Started by Rob Gunn 30 Jan 2014 7:03pm () Replies (6)

We are in the process of finishing our first chromebook deployment. We have the chrome management console and are now wondering if we have ticked all the right boxes so to speak. So far we have;

  • disabled guest log in
  • can only be used on our network
  • safe searching enabled
  • sign in restrictions so only our domain can log in
  • set the right time zone (very important )
  • enabled sites to start on log in
  • turned off incognito mode
  • gradually blacklisting websites but not a huge priority as teaching kids about smart use is a main priority.

Can anyone think of anything else that they have used that may be useful?

    Just deployed 50 Chromebooks via CMC and found your list useful.  Although we have it set to only our domain can log in, I chose to have these devices available for any network, so that staff could take them off-site when we attend professional learning or home to have a "play" with.  Planning on putting a sticker on the front of each device to alert possible burglars that the device will only work on our school domain, so pointless stealing as a deterrant.  I have also personalised what apps/extensions are available to students in the launcher and pinned to taskbar.

    Question: Can't seem to block access to the Chrome Store Icon on the launcher - any ideas what setting that is under?  Students can't download any apps/extensions (as have blocked that) but don't want them to be able to browse the chrome store as there is content on there that is not suitable for young eyes)
