for K-12 educators and
administrators to help
create safe learning
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.”
“Real Students. Real Stories.” shows the importance of the work the Gaggle Student Safety Representatives do on a daily basis to prevent students from being exposed to dangers like pornography, child predators and cyberbullying. Hear real student stories about how Gaggle Safety Management has been credited with uncovering drug use, bullying, and threats of school violence, teen depression, suicidal intentions, and abusive domestic situations.
Many schools and districts are considering Google Apps for Education (GAFE) and, more recently, Google Classroom. In fact, during a recent Tech & Learning webinar, “Managing Google Inside Your School District,” 66% of attendees identified themselves as being in a school that uses Google.
Inside the classrooms of Alhambra Elementary School District in Arizona, teachers are beginning to create paperless classrooms thanks to the integration of Gaggle and Google, which has led some teachers to remove the baskets from the corner of their desks.
