for K-12 educators and
administrators to help
create safe learning
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.
Schools will often use a server-based content filter for Gmail to comply with the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA), and then quickly realize that it puts the focus on discipline rather than instruction and promoting digital citizenship. This is exactly what happened at Mountain Brook School System when it started to move its technology to the cloud, including deploying Google Apps for Education (GAFE).
Together with Amplified IT, we’ve created a new ebook, “12 Ways to Safely Adopt Google Apps into Your School,” to help technology facilitators with user adoption and to help make sure that GAFE will be safe for teachers and students.
When Johnston County Schools in North Carolina made the decision to implement Google Apps for Education, administrators and staff knew they still needed additional protective measures to assure that students were safe using 21st century technology. Find out how Johnston County Schools works with Gaggle so educators don’t have to review questionable student communications and can concentrate more on classroom instruction in the case study, “Safe Learning, Anytime, Anywhere, on Any Device.”
