I am teaching an introduction to Internet and Social Media in a Secondary school in Ireland shortly. However, I have been told that the school makes use of a remote network monitoring service that blanket blocks all schools in its charge from using YouTube, FB etc. To remove the block from one school means the block is removed from all.
What do you recommend? Should I contact the vendor/network management people and beg or is it simple and safe to use a proxy? Really want this class to be a success but really don't want to pee off the school my messing with their settings.
*thank you for all answers and please let me know if I have posted in the wrong place cheers*
