software to spot extremism among pupils
4th June 2015
Impero has worked in conjunction with the Quilliam foundation, the world’s first counter-extremism think tank, to develop a new Anti-Terrorism, Extremism and Radicalisation keyword library. The policy is an addition to the other keyword libraries available in Impero Education Pro classroom management software, based on homophobia, racism, anti-bullying, grooming, sexting, eating disorders and self-harm. The software scans for when these terms are typed anywhere on the network, while the glossary definitions enable schools to identify patterns of behaviour over time and respond to potential risk.
