Notify designated staff about online activity that indicates a risk of suicide, self-harm, or possible harm to others.¹
Awarded to those products that are improving the way educators work and students learn, GoGuardian Beacon is a Winner of the 2020 Tech & Learning Awards of Excellence in Online Safety.
It’s not always easy to see that a student is struggling, and with school mental health resources often stretched to the limits, it’s possible that students who are in need of help may not always be visible.
Beacon augments a school or district's crisis prevention program by providing an additional layer of coverage to help identify at-risk behavior.
Beacon was designed with the guidance of leading experts in mental health to ensure that it fits seamlessly into your school or district's suicide prevention policy.
IT leaders can add Beacon to any school-issued Chromebook, iOS, macOS or Windows browser. Beacon processes online activity that indicates a risk of self-harm, suicide, or possible harm to others.
Beacon's timely alerts provide robust, relevant context around an event so designated staff can easily assess the risk level and respond appropriately. Escalation lists can be customized with unlimited contacts, escalation times, and mode of communication.
Approximately 80% of active planning alerts occur from search terms. Unlike other solutions that only focus on G-Suite or Office 365, Beacon works across search engines, web apps, and more.
Beacon now offers the option to have a dedicated team of safety specialists review and escalate active planning alerts 24 hours a day. These specialists operate within the U.S. and are specially trained to evaluate alerts.
