As part of our digital resource toolkit, WPS has partnered with Gaggle to help provide a safe digital environment for students to learn. Gaggle's industry leading machine learning technology and trained professionals evaluate student (grades 3-12) content 24/7/365 for potentially harmful content, messages, documents, images and more. If there is discovery of objectionable content or a potentially harmful situation, Gaggle alerts school officials and can assist in the discovery process. For more details, including Gaggle's safety management response rubric please review the Gaggle Safety Management Letter to Families.
This service provides not only a safety, security and well-being aspect but can also be used to help keep students on track, which ultimately has a positive impact on school climate and student achievement.
Gaggle plays a vital role in promoting digital citizenship and includes other benefits, including:
Gaining insight into student behavior
Creating a positive school climate
Guiding where to direct digital citizenship
Investigating incidents within schools
Ensuring students use learning tools correctly
Increasing student achievement
