Illinois Computing Educators Conference 2014 (ILICE) Andrea Keith
Even though the media is constantly reporting issues involving students in crisis, as victims, or as perpetrators, most of us want to believe it’s not happening in our school. But with the many popular free and paid products, apps, and services being used today, kids have lots of opportunities for trouble. Learn what’s happening across the country with real life stories from Gaggle's Human Monitoring Services, and what you should be looking out for in our own classroom or school.

Recently we notified a school about a student that was receiving messages like “you ruined yours and johns relationship it's always the cheaters fail you dumb bitch burn in hell your nothing but a slut” and other vulgar responses. In all, this student has received over 120 messages that have flagged in our system in less than a month. In these cases, we notify the schools about the volume or content of messages students are receiving. does not allow reporting of inappropriate usage and will not address any problems resulting from the use of their product

    8. 8. I am emailing you to let you know I am at the end of my rope. … Either my situation is fixed, to provide me with an optimal learning environment based on MY needs, not my PARENTS, or today will be the last day you see me. This is not a threat, this is not a tantrum, this is a GD promise. And if you try and admit me to a hospital, or put me into custody, I will do whatever it takes, even if it means banging my head against jail bars, I will end my miserable useless existence. .. And if I am going to have to live being as miserable as I am, then I truly, do not want to live anymore. So you tell me, are you going to do what the school wants and my parents think is right by making me isolated and miserable, and see my obituary in the paper, whenever it may appear? …. I suggest you stop wasting time on me, and start using your time and effort on someone who cares about what happens to them…I don't give care if I live or die. All I know is that I'm not going to continue to live, if I am this miserable.
