  1. A safer way if you have a permanent connection to the internet at home is to use an SSH tunnel. It is encrypted (so private) and reliable.

    You need suitable hardware (e.g. a PC or suitable router) that is switched on all the time at your home. You route your internet connection through this machine and so you get an unfiltered connection.

    I use this method from work when needed, and have also used it from China to bypass their firewall.

    I posted a sort of how-to at my blog which could be a starting point.


    I just sent this to my networkspecialist husband who already had blocked everything on this list. There are multiple reasons that companies block everything at work. It is against company policy to open up company intranets to the internet due to security risks. This is very dangerous due to data issues.

  3. Hello, I am in a workshop with Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach and we have an assignment to go to top ed tech blogs and I chose yours. I read your post about proxy servers and what students will be reading over the summer. I totally agree with you about working on beharior instead of working on blocking. Blocking is totally not the answer since I feel web 3.0 is the web that is in your pocket. And you can’t filter a student’s cell phone.

  4. This is a great link – we have software at our school that blocks sites too and kids are masters at getting around it! Actually, sometimes I’d like to get around it myself…

    I added your blog to my blogroll; hope you don’t mind!
