YouTube access at school
by Todd Malcolm - Tuesday, 21 March 2017, 12:34 PM

You Tube is available on trial to the whole school at the moment. It can be a really useful learning tool.

If your useage is very high ( ie downloading music during lessons ) you will be banned from accessing it. Reasonable use per person is around 500MB-1GB per day depending on your Yr level and the classes you take.

You are allowed to access it freely during interval and Lunchtimes. 

below is an example of someone whose high usage has meant they are banned, and will need to see their Dean regarding engagement in class......
