033 Protecting Children's Digital Journey with Ross Young

Season 2, Ep. 33

Thanks for tuning into another great episode of the EdTech Speaks podcast where we are joined by Ross Young, EVP of Linewize, a rising classroom management and technology company.


He helps K-12 school districts meet the challenges of today’s connected learning environment by leading product strategy, sales and customer experience. Ross has deep expertise in the EdTech and cybersecurity industries, a passion for technology and its ability to drive social impact, and a strong understanding of how to effectively integrate classroom management tools into school districts while complying with security, safety, 1:1 scale and procurement.


Ross is incredibly passionate about protecting kids and teens in their digital journey, especially because he once intercepted his daughter interacting with a predator online before it was able to escalate. When he’s not busy supporting and protecting every child’s digital journey, Ross can be found chasing his kids on bikes, skis, scooters or across the football field at his home in San Diego, California.


Listen in as we discuss surveillance vs. security when it comes to digital monitoring tools and EdTech tools and how they can protect students from harmful online behavior and help find early indicators of violence, self-harm and bullying.


Ross mentions that he has a variety of technical tools in his classroom management and digital monitoring software. Linewize can help school districts protect their students and avoid violent incidents. It can also help parents ensure their kids are navigating the digital world a little more safely.


He says, "Moving forward, I expect to see an emphasis on mental health awareness in EdTech monitoring tools. I also expect to see more tools emerge that will help to measure the effectiveness of the EdTech systems being utilized."
