One California school district has decided to start monitoring not only what students do while they’re at school, but also what they do on social media while they’re at home.
The Glendale Unified School District in southern California signed an agreement in August with Geo Listening, a startup that searches social media for posts that might signal a potential problem. Geo Listening is capable of finding posts that might indicate things like depression, bullying and hate speech by students or others in the area, and bring them to the attention of school administrators who can determine the best next steps.
