Keyword detection libraries
As student safety and wellbeing responsibilities for US schools intensify, the pressure for staff to stay up-to-date with the language used by young people – and the myriad safeguarding signs they have a duty of care to spot (as required in recent government legislation) – increases too.
Impero EdProtect’s inbuilt keyword libraries are a core part of its offering. The libraries have been carefully developed in partnership with a number of charities and specialist organizations. The libraries provide definitions relating to a broad range of student safety issues, from bullying and trolling to grooming, self-harm, sexting and counter-radicalization. All terms are assigned severity ratings designed to help school staff respond appropriately and within context of a student’s wider behavior, both online and offline. Schools also have the option to add localised terms if they choose.
