Safe and Sound: Remote Possibilities

 


Student safety and security have never been more important during these grim times. The move to remote learning has made life much more difficult for a much larger population of students. Jeff Patterson, Founder and CEO of Gaggle, watched demand for his company’s services surge this spring. On this episode of Remote Possibilities, He shares some daunting examples of how districts can deal with issues like suicide and cyber bullying with host Kevin Hogan.

The Gaggle safety solution combines artificial intelligence and trained safety experts to provide real-time analysis and review of students’ use of online collaboration platforms, such as Google’s G Suite for Education, Microsoft Office 365, and Canvas. Gaggle assists districts in proactively identifying and supporting students who are struggling as well as creating a safer school environment by building a culture for improved digital citizenship.

A greater number of students are using Hangouts for project collaboration, live class discussions, peer mentoring, virtual office hours, foreign language practice, and online study groups. This popular digital tool also provides a way for coaches and teachers to directly message their players and students, eliminating the need to share personal phone numbers. In all of these instances, Gaggle can evaluate suspicious content, alerting school officials of unsafe situations and even contacting local law enforcement when time is of the essence.
