safety precautions for computer lab
Sorry...the only threads on this topic are a number of years old and I can't find the info I need...
DS is in kindergarten. I need to make computer lab safety on par with the rest of our 504 plan (no peanuts in classroom, food only at 3 celebrations a year, 1st specials of day so tables are clean...). Seems logical he shouldn't then be using a keyboard that was just used by a child who ate peanut butter for lunch.
I inquired about getting a keyboard cover just for him. This seemed simplest and safest for all involved. I offered to locate and purchase it so they sent me pictures of the keyboard. However they pointed out that kindergarteners use the mouse much more than the keyboard. Any thoughts?
I would think it is easier to remove residue from a mouse than a keyboard. Then again I could provide a mouse but if it is hard to access the connection point it will just cause a lot of hassle...plus they are more likely to forget to switch that out than a keyboard cover I would think.
What do you all do for computer safety?
