Gaggle, a school safety company, announced today that it has joined the Google for Education technology program as a Premier Partner. Gaggle supports schools and districts that use G Suite for Education by monitoring Google accounts for early warning signs of students in crisis.
Gaggle’s student safety solution uses a combination of machine learning and human safety experts to review students’ use of online tools. The solution analyzes and reviews the use of collaboration platforms, such as Google’s G Suite for Education, for nearly five million students across the United States. The solution alerts school officials when students show signs of self-harm, depression, thoughts of suicide, substance abuse, cyberbullying, unhealthy relationships, and credible threats of violence against others.
