for K-12 educators and
administrators to help
create safe learning
When Cincinnati Public Schools made the switch to Google Apps for Education, there was one important, missing ingredient from bringing safe communication and collaboration to students and teachers. The district needed additional controls, including 24/7 filtering and monitoring, to make Google Apps a safe online learning environment.
Google Apps for Education offers students and teachers the opportunity to create and share without ever picking up pen and paper. As you move towards a paperless classroom with Google Apps, countless hours in the copier room vanish, allowing you to spend more time on teaching and planning.
Wisconsin Rapids Public Schools wants to make sure that it’s proactive with online student safety. After deciding to give Gmail accounts to students starting in fifth grade, the district quickly realized that the controls inside Gmail and Google Apps for Education were not enough to ensure the safety of its students.
You might be hearing some colleagues at your school or district complaining about all the inappropriate email messages that students receive inside their Gmail spam folders. While they’re likely happy that Google labels it as spam, they might be nervous about students having access to unwanted or inappropriate email.
