  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

          • 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.

            • allow teachers to rearrange order of student list in sessions

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

                • Admin access to teacher classes

                  Admins should be able to view all the teachers classes in GG for teachers. Admins should also have the ability to bulk import classes and assign those classes to teachers. This would make initial setup of GG for Teachers very easy in the summer months.

                  Maybe even integrated with a student management system like Powerschool or MMS. That way classes could be built off of class lists?

                  • How about a PC or windows application?

                    Goguardin seems to be working pretty well on the Chromebooks... How about a PC or windows application? We would probably drop Lanschool for this program!

                        • Time changes for scheduling

                          I've noticed that when the time changed both times this school year (once for Central Standard, once for Daylight Savings) that it messed the schedules up. I had to go in and reset them both times.
                          This isn't a major inconvenience, as it only happens twice a year, but it would be nice if the schedules wouldn't change so I could just set them once.

                            Hi Jim,

                            Thank you very much for bringing this to our attention. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. Upon further review, this seemed to impact your specific organization and we are working on a fix as we speak.

                            One of our technical support team members will be in touch shortly with next steps. This should be a permanent fix and you should not have any issues the next time we go through a time change.

                            Thank you again,

                            - Nickelle GoGuardian Teacher Product Manager

                          • 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.

                                Being able to right click on each student in screen view should bring up a list of options to streamline some of the options.

                                • Allow teachers to whitelist a site during a session.

                                  Sometimes a teacher may need a site unblocked for a particular group. This allowance during a session would accommodate that happening and make it readily available to the teacher instead of waiting for an administrator to unblock the site.

                                  • 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.

                                    • The capability to rename students after they have added to your class.

                                      At this point, students are logged in under a generic name, the name of the device they are working with. I would appreciate the capability to rename the device to the student's name this way I could easily see who is off task and who is not.

                                      • Allow the ability to rearrange the order of classes

                                        We need the ability to rearrange the order that classes appear on the drop-down list and on the classes list without deleting the entire class.

                                        • 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
