  1. Individual Student Browsing Report - total and average time spent on visited sites

    Student reports would provide our teachers with valuable information to better equip them with data about how their students use their class time while working on their devices. Teachers would use these reports as evidence to their arguments about their students' performance in IEP meetings, parent conferences, and while sharing concerns with the administration. Moreover, such statements would enable teachers to spot trends and create better intervention plans.

      We have recently launched the first version of our Individual Student Browsing Report. To learn more, please visit https://goo.gl/gYtfLt. We will release more updates in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.

      Thank you for making GoGuardian part of your classroom!

    • Drag and and Drop Student Thumbnail Tiles in Live Session View

      By allowing teachers to rearrange the listed order of students in sessions, teachers can better monitor the students who are more likely to be on the wrong site.

      • Audible & visual alerts when students open non-approved websites.

        Create an alert (audible & visual) when a student goes to a non-approved website. Just like my email makes a chiming noise when I get an email. It would be great if my computer would make a noise to let me know someone is on a website that isn't approved (the feature of creating "approved" websites would be a part of this). Then, if I'm walking around my room I can go to my desk and see who is doing what (the students profile flashing would be an easy way to indicate who the "offender" was) and redirect as necessary.

          Awesome idea! We love the idea of increasing visibility of off-task behaviour!

        • Allow teachers to mute Chromebooks

          If students are using an app that makes sound, it would be helpful to have an option to mute their Chromebooks so that the rest of the class isn't disrupted.

          • Teacher Control of Screen

            Teacher Control of Screen

            Need to create a feature that allows teachers to control students screens other than just closing tabs. Similar to the feature in the program iTalc.

              We’re constantly looking for ways to improve the connection between teachers and their students, and this idea seems like a great way to do that!

              We will look into the feasibility of this idea (technically) and get back to you.

            • Set a timer to automatically lock student screens after a certain time.

              I often set a timer for my students in class then manually lock their screens to bring back their attention.

              I would LOVE if I could set a timer on their screen that would countdown for them and then automatically lock when time is up. This feature is available on tools like Pear Deck and has been very helpful.

              • Create different groups to apply a different scene to each group.

                I love the "scene setting" feature. But I would love it even more if I could set different scenes for different groups of students in the same class. This would be great for blended/differentiated learning when I have different groups of students working on differentiated activities on the computer.

                • Parent portal: For parents to see what their child is doing on their Chromebook

                  Very similar to how a teacher sees the student activity, it would be nice if parents had this option to see what their child is doing on the Chromebooks.

                  • Add a sort feature based on "level of concern" so the few students who require more frequent monitoring are at the top and easily visible.

                    Every class has one or two (or a few) students who tend to need more close monitoring than their peers. However, it's difficult to pick them out of the tile or list views. Allowing us to give a quick rating of students (red, yellow, green?) and then sort by "level of concern" would make it far easier to keep an eye on students who need it the most. Thanks!

                      • Allow teachers to send custom commmands

                        I would like to be able to send customized commands to my students. It would help to not only send the command to close tab but also redirect them to what they should be doing.

                        • automatically unlock students screens when a session is ended

                          in case a teacher forgets to unlock student laptops before the end of a session, those computers should be unlocked when a session ends without having to power off the computer.

                            I would really like the ability to delete scenes. I have several that I no longer need. When I try to select a new scene I have to go through several pages.

                            • Admins need access to teachers classrooms

                              The Audit log has a very serious design flaw for admins. I can't tell how many teachers have set up their classrooms, only who is starting sessions. That is why admins need to be able to see teachers classrooms. Let's face it there are still a lot of teachers afraid of technology and just say it is to hard. I need to know who they are and intervene instead of hearing from administrators that the teachers can't use the product

                              • Get rid of student screens that aren't active

                                When a student closes their screen and you get the orange computer with the number 1 and they have started a new screen and you have the green computer with the number 2. Allow us to be able to get rid of the orange computer with the number 1 so it isn't taking up room on the screen.

                                • allow teachers to open a chat dialogue directly with a student by clicking on the screen in screen view mode.

                                  Currently the only way to open a chat is by clicking on the chat and then clicking on the students name. It would be so much easier to have a way to click on the students screen and chat with them. Maybe make a small chat bubble icon on each of the screens in screens mode, or have a small chat icon on the active tab when in timeline mode.

                                  • It would be great to give teachers the ability to blacklist specific URL's during a session for the students in that session.

                                    If there's a site that is often a distractor in your class but there are reasons that it should not be added to the general blacklist for all devices, it would be really handy to have the ability to blacklist it's URL for the duration of your class session for the students in that class session.

                                    • I suggest you allow teachers to move the classroom blocks on the homescreen to organize by period.

                                      I wish we could drop and drag the classrooms to be able to put them in order by class hour on the home screen.

                                      • add the ability for a teacher to see if a website is available under a specific policy

                                        When teachers are preparing a lesson plan it would be very useful for them to be able to test and see if a url is available for their students.
                                        We have teachers getting caught out in a lesson because they have chosen a website as a resource and it is actually blocked for their students.
                                        If teachers could check ahead of time it would save embarrassment in the classroom and mean that appropriate resources are being given to students first go.
