Digital Citizenship and Student Safety for K-12 Education

Published 25 Jun 2019

Digital and mobile technology have opened up innovative new styles of teaching by providing access to worldwide content sources. But this access also brings new risks related to unsafe content, bullying, and threats to privacy. State and federal governments have legislated requirements to protect student safety and privacy. Through digital citizenship curricula school districts can teach students how to navigate the Internet safely and responsibly. The ability to grant students increasing digital freedom as they demonstrate good digital citizenship is an important educational tool. School districts need to monitor network and application behavior in order to track compliance to legislative requirements. This combination of network monitoring and control, with Extreme Elements, enables schools to provide the ideal educational environment that maximizes student learning success.
