What eSafety tools does NetSupport DNA include?
NetSupport works closely with schools, school counselors, staff and students to create a range of proactive and reactive tools that are relevant, effective and most importantly, up-to-date. Providing the tools you need to identify students at risk; prevent them being exposed to inappropriate online content; encourage greater digital citizenship and wellbeing; enforce acceptable use policies and fulfil your eSafety duties – NetSupport DNA does this all, and in line with ISTE and CIPA guidance, and operated independently of the IT team.
If a concerning keyword is triggered, it’s captured immediately (available as a log, screen screenshot/screen video recording and more).
eSafety keyword language packs are included to support schools with students learning English as an additional language (EAL).
Identify genuine concerns via a numerical risk index based on the context and history of a student’s activities.
Student ‘Report a concern’
Students can share their problems and get help from staff without having to approach them in person.
The internet metering tools (including age-appropriate internet controls) helps monitor, protect and educate students on positive digital behaviour.
Track ‘at risk’ student activity
Vulnerable students can be flagged and tracked as an extra layer of support and a ‘history of concerns’ is available for each student.
Online eSafety resources
Providing students with independent access to a tailored list of eSafety resources can further support student empowerment.
Teacher ‘Add a concern’
Where teachers are verbally told of a student’s concern, they can now add the concern and choose the member of staff to report it to.
