Challenge:

Not enough time in the day for an individual—or the district as a whole—to monitor how students are using their devices in this 1:1 Tennessee school district.

Solution:

Gaggle provides an extra set of eyes to keep track of what students are saying and feeling in the district’s Microsoft Office 365 environment.

Result:

Greeneville City Schools has intervened in multiple suicide attempts, as well as other attacks, incidents involving self-harm, and the sharing of inappropriate content.
