There’s a need for a child online monitoring tool for Teachers and Parents
Many online harassment incidents happen in schools. As such, teachers have a vital role to play in cyber bullying prevention. And, since it is a growing concern not just in Australia but all over the world, we need to find more ways to deal with it. Here’s where having an online monitoring tool for teachers and parents can be very useful.
Technological innovation is now a major factor in the prevention of cybercrime and improving educational systems. For example, we’re now seeing the emergence of certain systems that can function as a classroom management tool for teachers and helps facilitate teaching and manage in-class behaviour. That same system can be powered by the internet, transforming it into an online classroom management tool for teachers.
Over to the side of cyber bullying prevention, there now exists an effective tool specifically made with students and young people in mind. Starshell Student is an innovative, educational platform for use with parents that safeguards young people on social media. What does this mean? For example, if your child sends a ‘sext’, attempts to post inappropriate content online, or bullies a peer using offensive language, you’ll be notified via text message on ways to deal with the issue—and so will they.
Here’s a quick overview of the platform’s main feature:
• Blocks explicit or harmful messages from being posted or received on social media
• Educates in a safe environment and encourages young people to be responsible on social media
• Learns new offensive language being used and takes action to block it
• Works on any device and is Cloud-based
