Digital Threat Assessment was developed through the need to keep pace with the ever-evolving technology challenges that face our students currently. These challenges have entered the education domain with force and have overwhelmed school district staff across the nation. The goal is to give attendees a stronger understanding of the current social media world, tools to be able to proactively identify student safety concerns, along with strategies for dealing with online situations as they arise. All aspects of school safety now involve a social media or online component and we need to be prepared.
“Data Doesn’t Lie – Proper Assessment for Violence Potential in Our Schools”
Successful Violence Threat Risk Assessment can only occur if we have a solid understanding of all data needed to appropriately assess an individuals’ potential for violence. In 2017, an overall assessment of risk cannot be determined without looking at social media and online activity. It is imperative to understand the tools and methods available to you to identify online threat related behavior. A large portion of the day will be spent doing hands-on searching exercises through the most current social media sites and applications.
Updates will be as current as of the day of the training! Recent updates include: Snapchat location story search, Snapchat Snap Map, Impersonation/Fake Instagram accounts.
(Important) LAPTOPS: You will need to bring along your fully charged Laptop, Macbook, Microsoft Surface or Google Chromebook in order to get the most from the hands-on portion of the training. Tablets are not compatible with some aspects of the training and searching capabilities are restricted with iPads. Your computer will need unrestricted Wi-Fi access – please test connectivity to a public network (e.g. Starbucks) before attending.
