This partnership adds a new layer to student safety during this critical time when many districts are grappling with what type of instruction models they will deploy.
SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) August 25, 2020
Linewize, a growing education technology company, today announced its partnership with Gaggle as a part of its expanding cyber safety offering. Gaggle is the pioneer in helping K-12 districts manage student safety on school-provided technology.
“We’re thrilled to partner with the Gaggle team,” said Linewize VP, North America Ross Young. “They dominate the ‘hands-on’ student safety market and have saved countless lives. Together, our technologies will work seamlessly to uncover more valuable data for school districts for an iron-clad cyber safety solution.”
The Linewize solution provides school districts with a web filtering system and classroom management tool equipped with red flag safety alerts, teacher/student screen sharing, and cyber safety education for the community. When Linewize flags a student internet search for terms that may signal potentially dangerous or harmful behavior, an alert will be sent to the Gaggle Safety Team, who will include Linewize alerts in their analysis to determine if the school or district needs to be notified.
The Gaggle safety solution combines artificial intelligence and trained safety experts to provide real-time analysis and review of students’ use of online collaboration platforms, such as Google’s G Suite for Education, Microsoft Office 365, and Canvas. Gaggle assists districts in proactively identifying and supporting students who are struggling as well as creating a safer school environment by building a culture for improved digital citizenship.
“This partnership adds a new layer to student safety during this critical time when many districts are grappling with what type of instruction models they will deploy,” said Jeff Patterson, Gaggle’s founder and CEO. “Whether students will be learning at home, in school, or a combination of both, Gaggle and Linewize stand ready to provide the digital safety net needed to help districts keep their students safe online wherever they are.”
