Encouraging Appropriate Student Behavior in the Digital World

Students don’t always fully understand the impact of their digital footprint, so it’s vital that educators set boundaries—especially when dealing with school-issued devices. In a district where students are in a 1:1 environment, how can educators ensure that they are behaving appropriately online every moment of every day?

This was the challenge faced by Desert Sands Unified School District (DSUSD) in La Quinta, CA, where all students from second through twelfth grades take their device home each night. With almost 29,000 students across the district’s schools, their setup—a team of three individuals monitoring student activity—was becoming unrealistic.

The district turned to Gaggle to implement their safety management platform, which features artificial intelligence (AI)-based screening capabilities to monitor student email and Google Drive accounts. Combined with human monitoring, the solution helps the district make quick—and sometimes lifesaving—decisions.
