47: Keeping Our Learners Cyber-safe at School, Home, and Everywhere, Ross Young Executive VP, Linewize

Overview

In this episode, I got to chat with the fabulous Ross Young, Executive Vice President at Linewize. If you have not heard of Linewize it’s going to be a tech that you are definitely going to want to have at your school or in your home. We get into some enlightening conversations about what Linewize and their solutions do to protect every learner’s digital journey. Students safety monitoring through the use of A.I. provides schools with ways to identify at-risk students and it’s the only solution out there that has all FOUR iKeepSafe student data privacy certifications: COPPA, FERPA, CSPC, and ATLIS. I learned so much from this conversation and think that Linewize is a tool that every educational institution needs. For more information about Linewize solutions go to their website and/or request a demo.
