Macmillan Learning | August 23, 2021
Macmillan Learning, a privately-held, family-owned education publishing and services company announced a new professional development series for educators to help support student engagement and success in college. The virtual “Engage Students to Achieve More” series is free for college faculty and administrators and will explore the techniques and technologies used to support active learning and student engagement in and outside the classroom, as well as timely lessons about effective teaching pedagogies gleaned during the pandemic.
Student engagement continues to be an area of concern due to educators’ diminished ability to work one-on-one with students and the decreasing levels of student motivation and morale versus pre-pandemic. It ranked as instructors greatest challenge in 2020, up from their third greatest challenge just two years ago, according to Digital Promise.
“While student engagement plays an important role in helping students in their coursework, its impact reaches far beyond the classroom,” said Charles Linsmeier, General Manager of Macmillan Learning. “In order to close COVID-19-related learning gaps, educators and student advocates are seeking new ways to best reestablish meaningful connections and timely interventions for deeper learning and engagement with their students. This is even more important with the variability and blending of synchronous and asynchronous teaching and learning environments, which is the norm for many institutions for the foreseeable future.”
Throughout the complimentary virtual professional development series, which begins in August and continues throughout the fall, participants will hear about student engagement practices and solutions informed by the experiences of instructors, students, and administrators during the pandemic. The series explores various strategies, methods, and techniques that help increase students’ attention, interest, curiosity, and positive emotional connections to their learning and college communities.

As temporary school closures due to COVID-19 push education online, a US platform is striving to make remote learning a safe experience for schools and K–12 students. ManagedMethods, a leading Google G Suite and Microsoft 365 cybersecurity and student safety platform for K–12 school districts, today announced the addition of Google Meet and Chat monitoring and reporting to its platform. The extra functionality has been specially designed to give school districts full visibility and control into all lessons and student activities taking place within Google Meet and Chat.
The monitoring and reporting platform updates school IT administrators on who has joined a meeting or virtual classroom and from which device. It also helps schools monitor the images and text content of remote learning environments for any cyber-bullying, threats of violence, discrimination, and warning signs of self-harm and domestic abuse.

“The current circumstances due to COVID-19 have rapidly transformed K–12 education, and brought with them new cybersecurity and student safety challenges. Schools are relying on Google Meet for video conferencing and Google Chat for communications,".
~ Charlie Sander, CEO of ManagedMethods.
The rapid transition to virtual learning as a result of the health pandemic has posed a challenge for even the wealthiest school districts. When conducting remote learning, districts are still responsible for complying with student data privacy regulations, including FERPA, COPPA, and CIPA.
“Our new Google Meet and Chat monitoring functionality will give IT teams more insight into school meetings to better protect sensitive data, secure remote learning, keep meetings private and students safe.���
For IT teams, that means securing video meetings against unauthorized access by any non-organizational account—including a parent or guardian account—while all school activity takes place outside the network perimeter. According to ManagedMethod's chief revenue officer, David Waugh, effecting the transition from face-to-face to virtual learning is just one part of the challenge schools are facing right now. “We consistently heard from our customers who have made the transition to remote learning that Google Meet and Chat use has rapidly increased, and they needed a tool to give them visibility and control into the activity taking place there," said Waugh.
ManagedMethods provides K-12 IT teams with an easy, affordable way to identify data security and student safety risks in district G Suite and Microsoft 365 accounts. ManagedMethods continually audits all Google files, Drive, Shared Drive, Gmail, Microsoft 365 files, SharePoint, OneDrive, Outlook 365, and Exchange. Set up automated risk policies and audit reports to keep on top of what is going on in your district’s cloud apps.
