Creating a safe and healthy school environment can be daunting when students spend the majority of their time online. Students have access to these devices 24/7 and can be exposed to risky situations any day of the year. Implementing a student safety net on students’ devices, apps, and online shouldn’t have to be the sole responsibility of the district. School safety starts with ensuring the security of devices students use partnered with robust monitoring.
Technology can make it easier to protect students. Not all solutions are free, but implementing a solution that is easy for educators and high-impact for students is important for their safety. Google for Education in combination with Gaggle can create a digital safety net that gives educators peace of mind while monitoring for threats to students. Last school year alone, over 4.5 million students were protected by these secure devices.
How does your district protect students on their school-issued devices or apps? In this edWebinar, see examples of how Chromebooks, G Suite for Education apps, and Gaggle, can keep students secure in the context of privacy, data, digital monitoring, and citizenship.
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to elementary through high school district leaders.
