  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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?

  9. 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.

  11. easily create temporary classes. For example, have 4 students working after school (currently in different sections).

    I want to be able to easily create temporary classes. For example, have 4 students working after school (currently in different sections), I want to be able to view all of their screens at the same time without altering current sections or creating a whole new class.

    I’d love to hear more about your use case. Do these students change from day to day?

  12. Add a "Save to Google Drive" option for Snapshots

    Users would be able to save Snapshots of student screens directly to their Google Drive

  13. Make student interactions accessible from a "right-click"

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

  15. Administrator SU overlook

    Is there an administrator side of this so we could monitor all students rather then a teacher side that the students need to be present to add the enrollment code. Possibly be able to add the students by email address or a SU like the GoGuardian side of things. That would be great

  17. 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!

  18. 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.

    Hi! We currently allow students to be added by email. Students can be removed by clicking the “x” by their name in the Classroom Students section.

    Are there other options you need to add and remove students? I’d love to hear about them!
