How to Create a Safe 1:1 Learning Environment

Your school or district likely isn’t much different than Redding School District in Northern California. Sure, you might have a larger student population, and be separated by hundreds, if not thousands, of miles, but you both are looking for new ways to create digital learning environments that facilitate critical thinking, creativity and collaboration.

At the same time, and again just like you, Redding School District strives to keep pace with the latest advances in technology. The district recently provided Chromebooks to about 1,200 students in fourth through eighth grade as part of a 1:1 initiative.

It turns out, that was the easy part. Seth Hemken, Redding School District’s Director of Technology, quickly discovered that this project was just getting started. Despite mastering Google’s management console and implementing a leading web filtering product, the district needed a way to assure the safety of its students when sharing files and sending email back and forth.

In our latest case study, learn how Redding School District:

  • Fills in gaps in the security and protection of its Chromebooks.
  • Relies on the 24/7 real-time monitoring by Gaggle Student Safety Representatives who detect potential issues and alert school officials if a threat is imminent.
  • Proactively responds and stays ahead of misuse, cyberbullying and other threats.
