How can we improve GoGuardian Teacher?

Create different groups to apply a different scene to each group.

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

    This would be extremely helpful! There are numerous times during class when I have all students in a specific scene but need one or two students to go to a different site if they have missing work or need to do an alternate activity. Or alternatively, if all students are working but I have one student off task and need to apply a scene without interrupting the others.

    this has a large number of votes and comments. I wonder why it hasn't been reviewed or looked at yet.. there are items with less votes that have been planned already... this is a huge request by all of our teachers in our district

    There are often times that students are working on different assignments. Applying scenes to a select group would be very useful.

    This would also be useful for when a teacher is giving an online test, for example. After a student is done with the test, their scene could be changed so they can move on to other work while the other students are still restricted until their test is finished.

    I have, in ONE classroom, kids that are there Mon - Fri; some that are only M/W/F and some that are only T/Th... this would be a great feature.

    You could make it click-box item with an apply function like you do for locking screens or excluding students.

    I have a few students I want to keep a closer eye on- It would be nice to group their screens closer together

    This would be extremely useful, especially when differentiating within the same classroom. It could be something as simple as when the student has a site up that I have blocked, I would like to be able to click "allow" or something to that effect. All of my students are not always working on the same page, and may need access to different things I may have restricted for another assignment.

    I suggest you enable the ability to create different scenes for different students (or student groups) instead of having scenes apply to "all or nothing"-- whole classroom/everyone, or no one at all. Thanks!

    I would love to see the ability to apply scenes to individual students in the class. Especially when you are needing only certain students to work on a test/assignment and you want to allow others to work on other homework.

    I'd like to be able to apply a scene to a class but then exempt selected students from the scene. For example, if students are taking a quiz and have notes on Google Docs, I want to set a scene so they can only see their Google Docs stuff and not research the answers to the quiz questions. However, I might have a few students who are not taking the quiz but are working on other assignments and need the freedom to visit other sites.

    Creating separate classes to restrict web access is pretty cumbersome. Would be nice to be able to just checkoff students in the class list and apply scene as necessary.

    I completely agree with this.. I have noticed many other people suggesting it.. I really hope it gets looked at..

    I find creating a separate scene and running it at the same time by opening another instance of GoGuardian (via a shortcut on my desktop) works really good. I have a select group of kids that may need to browse Google while their classmates are not allowed to, so I created a scene that gives that freedom. Then I moved those kids into the new scene and removed them from the other. The scenes are running concurrently. If a student in the less restrictive scene needs more restriction, I remove them from the less restricted scene and put them in the restricted scene.

    To accomplish this, I have been creating a "Class" for each Scene I want to apply, add the student to that new class(ie; "Limited Access" or "Time Out"), then schedule the new class that has the scene applied to match the main class session schedule. If there is a better way to do this, I am interested to learn of it. =+)

    Let's say I give a test and two students were absent and are taking it on another day. I would like to be able to lock them in a different scene than my other students and not simply exclude them from the testing scene that day because if I exclude them, I lose the ability to monitor what they do that period.
