How can we improve GoGuardian Teacher?

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.

    I was able to do this at my past school and it was very helpful. Not just for those students off task, but to help those who needed a little guidance.

    I used to like the blackout function in NetSchool Support. I was able to get the students attention faster.

    Yes! This feature would be extremely helpful. It is already available in Faronics Insights for PCs. This feature is incredibly helpful when testing. It allows the teacher to type in the test code remotely and for numerous computers. This is very valuable when giving the NWEA MAP test to a room full of kindergarten students!

    There are times I need to control curser to help student unerstand where to click. Sometimes I want to highlight something for them to focus on .

    Yes, I've used a program in the past that allowed us to do this. It was helpful to get students to the correct spot at times.

    Agreed! I was trying to help a new student log into a website today. It would have been a lot easier if I could just click her screen and pressed the link she needed.

    Agreed! If we are going to be monitoring what our students are doing, it's difficult to always keep myself at the teacher computer. Students instantly know that this means they can go to another website, cheating on quizzes, for example.

    LanSchool also has this feature. It was very nice to be able to help students from a distance without walking away from others.

    For example if a teacher opens youtube in a new tab for students the teacher should be able to put in the video that they want the students to watch.
