Childproofing Your Mac #edtech #spedtech #spedchat #assistivetech #parents

This weekend, Mac|Life published a 3-page illustrated, step-by-step tutorial for parents on how to childproof the Mac.  The article explains how to create different user accounts, customize Parental Controls for MacOS/iTunes/etc., use several third-party utilities to further protect your children, and also keep your data safe using Time Machine.

The suggestions presented in this article would not only be helpful to parents for childproofing a Mac at home but also for educators to consider when setting up Macs for use in the classroom.

Another resource on this topic that I would suggest is Childproof Your Mac, with Mac OS Lion by Scott McNulty.
