  1. Update Scenes to include the ability to block Chrome apps and extensions.

    With the ability to set a scene for teachers, it would greatly improve assessment data if Scenes would also block Google apps and extensions.

    • chat options

      I would love to be able to chat with particular students in GoGuardian instead of opening up the chat for all my students. As soon as I enable the chat feature, students want to chat and say hi and it's distracting for both me and them.

      • 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…

          • Develop an iPad app

            GoGuardian has worked really well for my classes. Now, however, my school is one of an increasing number that has a grant for a 1:1 iPad program. Now I am stuck trying to use Apple Classroom to monitor student activity, and it is probably the worst app I've ever tried. Our tech folks have met with Apple to try to improve it, but there is widespread concern that it will continue to be absolutely awful/useless. Please develop a GoGuardian app!

            • Scene specifications to certain students

              Allow teachers to apply certain scenes to specific students or groups without applying that scene to the whole class.

              • 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!

                  • 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!!!!

                    • 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!

                      • It would be helpful if the chat feature had an option where you only open the chat to a single student, rather than the whole class.

                        Maybe put the little chat bubble icon on each student's tile (near the screen lock perhaps), where teachers can send a quick message to that student. Currently, when chat is enabled, it is enabled for the whole class. As soon as students see that bubble pop up, they all want to message me. Sometimes that is ideal, other times it is not.

                        • save a scene as an exception list

                          I have made a scene for blocking gaming sites and I have added a lot of websites to the scene. I want a way to take that scene and save it as an exception list so that it can be added to new scenes later on. I also want the ability to share scenes or exception lists with other teachers.

                            It would be nice if we could duplicate a scene. I'd like to have the same blocked sites, but make some changes. Is it possible to duplicate one?

                            • Shared Scenes Between Co-teachers

                              I work in our district's alternative education program and we have four teachers that utilize the same classroom in GoGuardian. I created scenes for our classroom but my fellow teachers do not have access to modify the scenes I created. Given the ever evolving group of students within our classroom, providing access to scenes created by one of the co-teachers to all of the teachers would greatly help our utilization of GoGuardian within our classroom.

                                  • What if each session could be changed based by time.

                                    What if each session could be changed based on time periods. For example, my schedule from 7:30 am to 8:10 am is on one website and then after they are open to use other websites. I need to change the scene each time. If we could program per day, throughout the day, it would make the process easier so we could pre-schedule the routine.

                                    • Ability to Remove All Students from a Class

                                      I see students for 30 days at a time, and they move on to the next rotation. I would love to have the ability to remove all students from a class at one time; it would save me time and allow me to keep the same classes all year, just with new students every 30 days.
