Re: [school-discuss] Passwords for kids?

If you have a separate login for each student, those with password problems could have a password the same as their login identity. This way they have a template to use while typing.
Hope this helps,

Sort of an oddball question, but...

I'm working in a youth center with a ten-system computer lab, 80+ kids
using it so far, Samba domain.

Kids are anywhere from 6 to 18.

_Most_ of them can deal with passwords. A few can't spell their own
names (and most of 'em could use better typing skillz -- not to mention
a far more discriminating taste in music....).

But for a fair number of 'em, particulary the younger set, and a few
others with learning disabilities, remembering passwords seems to be
beyond the possible. Anyone have experience with setting up accounts
for kids?

Primary login is WinXP. Even here, the three-field login (username,
pass, logon target (workstation/domain) is confusing.
