Learn how valuable monitoring students’ social media activity has become; this is the new playground for students and they are posting everything about their lives, even information that may predict the next school tragedy. This program explores the opportunities that exist for school administrators to capitalize on advance student intelligence.

Participants will learn how valuable social media activity has become to the Generation Y students. They will be made aware of social media as an intelligence tool, not just a fun-time experience of photos and texting among kids.

  • They will learn which social media sites are most utilized; the differences between the social media platforms and methods for tracking student activity on social media sites.
  • School security practitioners / administrators will learn how and why the legal system protects their organizations when monitoring their students.
  • The latest studies will be reviewed: the percentage of crimes committed when administrators could have been aware. How student profiling fails miserably in trying to protect schools and creating fake accounts may not only be a civil violation, it is costly and risky for school district.
