  1. Lock the students computers onto a certain website, for a certain period.

    I would love it if I could lock the students computers onto a certain website, for a certain period.

    I am working on doing stations in my classroom where they go to 3 different stations (independent study/homework time, watch a video lecture of me, and time to ask me questions on lecture/homework).

    I want to make sure they only watch the video that I decide on and that they can't go to other websites, this way they can only watch the video(s) I have chosen for them and stay on task at this station.

    Since I am answering questions at…

      Hello!

      Thank you very much for the wonderful suggestions. We are happy to share we have officially launched our new “Scenes” feature that supports the ability to lock students on a specific website during your class period. This new feature also includes other useful tools such as having the ability to auto-open tabs, manage tab usage (set the max number of tabs a student can open), and provides even more ways to manage site accessibility in your classroom. Check it out and please let us know what you think!

    • Be able to apply different scenes to different students

      It would be helpful to be able to restrict certain students individually or as a small group - either to different "scenes" or some restricted and some not . I work in a resource (SPE) setting and often have students working on different things as different times. This would also be very useful for station teaching.

      • I would like to be able to end the restriction on certain students in a scene without excluding them.

        That way if they've once they've finished the assignment(s) for the day, they can work on things for another class or something while the rest of the class is still working. That way you can still monitor their screens.

        • Schedule by Annual date versus weekly dates when scheduling sessions

          Being able to schedule a session based on day month year can support block scheduled teachers instead of only being able to schedule by day of the week only both are useful but if I can set my whole plan up at the beginning of the year I can modify days that only change instead of setting up my schedule every week

          • enable a student to be removed from an active scene to work independently but remain in the class once a new scene is started later.

            enable a student to be removed from an active scene to work independently but remain in the class once a new scene is started later. Currently they have to be manually added back in before the next session.

            • Chat bubble on student's computer

              Can we have the option for the student's screen to not have the chat bubble unless we post something to them? On our chromebooks, the chat bubble is rather large and gets in the way for function. However, I would like the option of chatting with some students.

                • Make a student's session screenshots easily printable.

                  Please make a student's session screenshots easily printable directly from GoGuardian. I would like to be able to print pages with screenshots for one particular student, without having to download individual images.

                  • Allow teachers to take a snapshot of student screen even after a session is over.

                    Currently I only seem to have the option of seeing and taking a photo of a student's screen while a session is occurring, but I would like to be able to see where students went during the session after they have left the classroom.

                    • Create a setting to set different scenes for different students.

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

                      • screenshot

                        Access to screenshots needs to be more accessible. Either a list by session, or a list by student.

                          I want to modify a previously created scene without recreating it all. Can we please make a copy of a scene and then make changes to it?

                              I love GoGuardian, love Scenes especially, but I haven't figured out how to block google.com while allowing classroom.google.com, docs.google.com, etc. I am thinking it may not be possible.

                              • Add Tool Tips to Screen Items

                                It would be helpful if you added Tool Tips to your various buttons and screen items. For example, if the cursor hovered over the "Exclude" button, a tool tip would pop up and say something like "Selected students will be excluded from the current session." These are just helpful items and reminders for those of us who forget which each function or button does.

                                • find a way to make sure students cannot trick the system.

                                  Currently, students can split their Chromebook screens and choose which screen they want to show up on Go Guardian! A student demonstrated this can be completed today. He was able to have his Google Doc open and YouTube, and only the Google Doc appeared to be the item he was using on the screen. He could even move his mouse around in the YouTube screen without showing signs of being in YouTube on the screen for Go Guardian.

                                    I would love to be able to see what sites a student is trying to visit when the site is blocked. It only shows up that the student tried to view a blocked site but it doesn't say what specific site.

                                      • Be able to turn the sound off on my students' computer from GoGuardian.

                                        I have a few students who always "accidentally" have their sound on at inappropriate times. I want to be able to remotely turn off the volume.

                                        • provide various formats of data presentation.

                                          I would like to be able to view data collected in bar graph form. I also think it would be ideal to be able to view a specific number of minutes that students have spent on computers total.
