Cyberbullying Monitoring for K-12 School Districts

Detect Cyberbullying in School Google Workspace & Microsoft 365

Cyberbullying Leads To Mental, Social, and Physical Harm For Students

Over 70% of students have been bullied, with over 40% reporting that they’ve been bullied in the last 30 days. Bullying happens both online and offline. For victims, the digital and physical experiences converge into one existence of constant harassment. Victims of bullying often experience increased depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts. With over 60% of bullying victims saying that being cyberbullied affects their ability to learn and feel safe in school, bullying can also lead to lower learning outcomes.

Students are spending more time learning, working, and communicating in school-provided technology. As they become more comfortable with this online space, they are also using it for personal communication. Tech and safety teams are increasingly detecting cyberbullying signals in shared documents, slide decks, chat apps, emails, and images. Many are putting technology and processes in place to monitor for cyberbullying and other toxic online behaviors to help victims and educate bullies.

Cyberbullying Monitoring Resources for K-12 IT & Safety Teams

“My ‘Aha!’ moment happened just a few days into becoming a ManagedMethods customer. The platform’s inappropriate content monitor alerted me to a Google Doc that a dozen students were using to chat in. They were being quite clever by typing in white text and constantly changing the file name. Needless to say, the language was very inappropriate. I never would have been able to hunt this down without ManagedMethods."

Diana Gill

“If you don’t have ManagedMethods, you’re missing a big portion of the things that are happening in your district’s Google Workspace. I don’t know of any other company doing what ManagedMethods can do. It’s well worth the cost."

Greg Alico

“The student safety component of ManagedMethods paid for itself within a few weeks. We had a couple of incidents that we would not have caught had it not been for ManagedMethods.”
