      > > It all depends on the district's policy. the district I used to work in didn't allow teachers to use their personal e-mail while at school not just during school hours; it was blocked. Other sites were blocked as well, not just inappropriate sites for kids; sites that contained certain "trigger" such as naked even though it wasn't in the context of body or people. "The Naked chef", for example would be blocked or perhaps a site dealing with the Olympic Games in Ancient Greece (because the men participating in the games didn't wear clothing. Any form of streaming media was blocked as well. You'd have to get approval from someone in technology to unblock it for you and if anything on the site could be interpreted as inappropriate for kids you wouldn't be granted access. If there's a computer lab at your school site check the schedule if you'd like to have everyone look at the Internet at the same time; there are quite a few interactive Art sites. Individually, you could devise a rotation schedule within the Art room to use the computer if that's the way you'd like to go. I suggest you check into your district's policies about the Internet.
