  1. Student Report - Needs Pie Chart or Duration

    Student reports provide teachers with valuable information about how students use their class time while working on their devices, but it is missing a key component of this discussion, time! As a teacher, student reports only show me what websites they visited throughout the session. Unfortunately, this does not tell me how long they spent on each active tab, such as time spent on youtube verses a google doc, just that they visited both. This information is important data for evidence on students' performance in IEP meetings, parent conferences, while sharing concerns with the administration, and to aid in creating…

      • Allow Scene Deletion

        Allow teachers to delete scenes!! Some scenes I have made for tutorial purposes, and some are just unnecessary. I realize we can edit a scene, but we should be able to delete or archive them as well!

        • delay schedule

          It would be beneficial to have options for 2 Hour Delay schedules as well as Block vs. Normal schedules. This could easily be accomplished as a tab feature that would override ALL courses for a given day.

          Currently, my school has M, T, F normal schedules and W/Th block. If we miss a day or have a 2-hour delay, etc. All my course scenes are incorrect. There is not yet a feature to quickly change ALL course scenes to another option, nor to add special schedules to a course without deleting my normal schedule for each class.

          • IP Addresses

            It would be nice to add users by IP addresses because our students have figured out that they can bypass the filters by logging in as another student. I had this option when I worked at a school that used Vision, and I never had an issue being able to monitor my students remotely. Unfortunately, I still have to walk around the room to make sure that students are on appropriate sites which defeats the purpose of using GoGuardian to begin with.

            • Shared Exception Lists

              Can GoGuardian develop something for admins or teachers be able to share exceptions list? It is has become tougher for my teachers to make lists when using the Block mode to ensure all our applications are allowed through. It would be efficient and beneficial for all schools dealing with this. Thanks!

              • "no active tabs" - uh oh!

                I notice if a student is on an app such as Screencastify (or something less educational), the screen says "no active tabs". We need to be able to see everything that is on the students' screens.

                • "Cancel sessions for today" feature

                  My school periodically uses a "half day" schedule for various reasons, and letting the kids work online is a popular lesson plan on those days.
                  We discovered right away that this can cause problems w/GoGuardian, because if the kids are registered in the "wrong" classes (which happens all day on half-days), the kids can't do their work. We as teachers have to remember to end our sessions manually as soon as they start to "free up" those students to work under another teacher's supervision. Super complicated!

                  It would be much easier if we could just go to our classrooms page…

                  • Recently I searched the browsing history of a student and happened upon some searches that gave me great concern

                    Recently I searched the browsing history of a student and happened upon some searches that gave me great concern. I contacted support to find out why I hadn’t received an email about searches for suicide and I was told that our school had not selected to receive alerts for self-harm or explicit material. I looked into this and that was correct. THESE TRIGGERS SHOULD BE SET BY DEFAULT! Why would our small school pay for a filtering service like GoGuardian if we didn’t care that students visited sites with explicit material? or sites that encourage self-harm? I get emails when…

                    • Have a list of commonly excused game websites readily available to block. There are SO many.

                      In the option to make a scene, have a list of "commonly blocked" websites available to choose from.

                      • Chat History

                        It would be so helpful to be able to review a conversation held with a student during a session through the chat feature. Maybe a "Chat Log" for each session and/or a "Chat History" for each student. I was so busy chatting with multiple students, sometimes I would like to make sure I didn't miss a message or to revisit a specific message from a student. Unfortunately, once the session ends, all of the chat history disappears immediately. Not cool GoGuardian!!!!

                          • Broadcast teacher/instructor screen to all student screens.

                            Instructor can broadcast their screen to all students active in the classroom. This would allow Teachers to mass present something to the class. For example, some students may have a hard time seeing a projector. This would allow them to view the projector directly from their laptop.

                            • See ACTIVE tabs on ALL open browsers.

                              When students have two or more browsers open at the same time we would like to see that the top tabs open on all browsers are active. Sometimes students show all open windows and watch videos on one window while it looks like the other "on task" tab is active.

                                      • Cancel Schedules Sessions for a Day

                                        Way to stop scheduled sessions just for one day (in case there is a day off from school or a changed schedule because of snow delays, etc).

                                        • delete go guardian for ever until im out of school at least

                                          delete go guardian because kids across the country are committing suicide because go guardian takes away the only electronic entertainment they have.
