Streaming Music Services

  • 1.  Streaming Music Services

    Posted 29 days ago
    We are looking at how to manage and or block music streaming services. We are a small K-8 school, and as such, we have some 8th graders who can, with parental permission, use services such as Spotify and Pandora.

    What are your districts/schools doing in terms of streaming music services?

    Blocking them is pretty straightforward.  If you are using chromebooks, and subscsribe to GoGuardian, Securely, or another filter simply add the sites to the block lists, and also block any extensions or apps the students can download.  

    Also, I assume you have a firewall.  You can also easily block them there.

    Blocking for some is a little more difficult, as you have to utilize groups, and that assumes your firewall integrates into active directory, or whatever you use.  

    I look at the streaming services as comparable to social media sites.  I block these for all students under 7 th grade.
