classroom.cloud’s new Student iOS app now includes online safety tools! These help schools to not only teach remote and in-school students, but also to identify and monitor those who may be vulnerable – at all times and in any location.
Key features include:
- Keyword and phrase monitoring
- Add and share your own keywords
- Language packs for safeguarding EAL students
- Word cloud of trending topics
- Contextual Intelligence to help determine severity levels
- Plus, much more!
The app works by alerting nominated staff members when students type or search for any terms that match with those in the classroom.cloud keyword database – providing online safety indicators for self-harm, bullying, sexual and criminal exploitation and much more.
Staff can also manage the pre-populated lists of online safety terms in the classroom.cloud web portal and add any additional keywords they feel are appropriate.
Students who do feel vulnerable can access a list of relevant online resources via the app, should they want to seek external help with a particular problem or concern.
