IT department WILL NOT allow me to install software on the student machines.
ALSO --> and this may be a big hurdle, the IT department WILL NOT allow me to install software on the student machines. Besides asking students to bring in laptops for this endeavor, does anyone have an idea how I can overcome this obstacle and get my students the software they need for this ongoing adventure? We have 28 student computers, each has 6GB RAM, good processors, and blah, blah, blah.
Some schools are still in a dark ages. Remember when the teacher knew everything, and the students just received it (and forgot it)..
