Foiled by filters

Today our second period class hit a roadblock as half of the students in class were blocked from logging into their gmail accounts.  This also prevented them from accessing their symbaloos.  Once students realize they can't use the required tools, they get frustrated and it affects their research.  Luckily, the entire day wasn't a total loss as the filters allowed students access halfway through third period.  Some students have hit a wall on their research.  They do not know where to turn after a basic google search.  I will continue to encourage these students to set up a feedly and seek out others who are doing the same type of project.  I am going to have to give them more resources for research before our next session in the computer lab.
