Keeping Students Safe Online
9 in 10 K-12 parents, educators, and administrators support edtech that is designed to keep students safe online
With more than 80% of K-12 students using a school-issued device as part of their learning, it is clear that keeping students safe online is a top priority for parents, educators, and administrators. Recent polling from Morning Consult revealed overwhelming support from these groups for edtech that is designed to:
Prevent students from accessing harmful content
Detect signs of a student considering self-harm or harm to others
Keep students on task and away from distractions
Additionally, survey respondents broadly agreed it is a school’s responsibility to implement these tools.
