If you use the filtering piece, you can set it to notify you of inappropriate language - which includes comments/chats made on shared documents.
On the flip side of the coin why would we want to turn off the chat? Don't we want out students to learn how to use these tools? Don't we want them collaborating? Of course, we have to educate them to chat appropriately. We use Google apps at our school, both teachers and students, and we have had a couple of reported misuses of chats and e-mails but we handled them as they occurred and used them as teachable moments. If we could turn off the chat the kids would just find another way to chat through Yahoo, or even on their cell phones.Let's teach the kids how to properly use these tools.PhyllisOn Wed, Mar 14, 2012 at 5:59 PM, [log in to unmask] <[log in to unmask]> wrote:

We are using Teacher Dashboard http://hapara.com/teacher-dashboard-for-google-apps
in our middle school, it costs $3 per student and is a great way to access/manage student documents, you can establish your own categories, it provided quick dashboard view of all of your students docs, mail, sharing, and lets teachers change passwords. It is not an archive…so if a student trashes and empties the trash it’s gone.
We are paying $11/yr for 10-year archiving. We are doing this for staff and not for students, assuming that the "trail" will be available in either the sender's or receiver's accounts. Our student email (gr. 5-8) is internal only at this point.
Question for Elizabeth: What is the add-on you are using for Teacher access to student content? Teacher's Workplace or something like that? Does that provide any archiving?

There are different levels of Postini Message Discovery service 1 year and 10 year. We think 1 year is not enough so use 10 year. More money per license.
Google discounts by 65 percent or so for Education. 83.00/user/year x .65 = $53.95/year or 4.95/month/user.

Pay for archiving using Postini. I believe it is $4 per user. I have also been contacted by http://www.syscloudsoft.com/ which seems like a nice option for archiving. I am scheduling an interview with them on the podcast sometime soon.

We are using GApps for Ed and trying to track down a bullying issue, but it appears that the students involved have deleted emails permanently (including sent items). I know we can use the "victim's" email receipt, but my administration wants to know if we can prevent student users from deleting email permanently? Thoughts and suggestions?
