Gnosis IQ, an Arizona-based artificial intelligence (AI) software company that predicts and tracks student success, recently announced a strategic partnership with Bark Technologies, the Atlanta-based online safety company that protects more than 5 million children from digital dangers at home and in 2,800 schools and districts nationwide.
Gnosis IQ is now an official reseller of Bark for Schools, Bark’s edtech software that monitors emails, chats, and documents on school-issued G Suite and Office 365 student accounts. Bark for Schools sends timely alerts about threats of violence, bullying, depression, and other dangers to educators and parents to help protect students as they use technology.
“As someone who has been involved in supporting educators and young learners for more than 20 years, I am excited to see how this relationship will help support our students,” said CEO of Gnosis IQ, Ben Smith. “We will promote students’ well-being through this partnership with possible enhancements, integrations, and professional development. The combined offering is powerful and will significantly impact thousands of students.”
Gnosis IQ's AI technology uses learner and instructor data to predict possible student performance outcomes. Students, parents, teachers, and administration are then offered the ability to support positive outcomes while intervening to help prevent negative outcomes before they become a significant problem.
Bark's powerful monitoring engine, when combined with the Gnosis IQ AI dashboards and self-reporting emotional tools, will provide educators and academic stakeholders with an unprecedented level of insight into their students’ worlds.
“The Bark/Gnosis IQ partnership provides an unparalleled protective sphere for students,” said Bill Klasnic, VP of Bark for Schools. “Together, Bark and Gnosis will not only keep children safe from common external digital dangers, we’ll also support student wellness and mental health to set them up for success both in and out of the classroom.”
