We have had that kind of problem off an on. There's no real way to prevent
it so I tend to go the peer pressure route: "Isn't it inconvenient when
another student behaves irresponsibly?" "If you see someone doing this or
know who it is please ask them to stop." When the problem gets bad I just
don't fix the computers for a few days, so the students feel the hardship.
For me it's never lasted more than a couple of days at a time. I don't make
a big fuss so they don't get much gratification from it. But I'll admit
it's a real annoyance when it's happening. I haven't dealt with this in a
couple of years fortunately. Good luck-

Hello fellow Baisl Colleagues,
I trying to think “outside of the box” for a solution and I’m curious
what you do when students tamper with your computer keyboards?
An unknown student took 4 space bar keys from 4 computers and spurred us
to think how we can better prevent future mischief.
So my question to all of you, how would you manage this, respond to this,
prevent this…at your school?
I’m convinced there is BAISL wisdom out there!
Thanks for your ideas!
