    • Calendar Schedule

      My school has a rolling block schedule. I would like to be able to choose what day on the calendar would be each class. If I were to do M/W/F one week, I need it to be T/Th the next week.

      • 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?

        • 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.

          • iPad application for my teacher dashboard

            It would be great for this to be an app so that I may walk around with an ipad checking students screens and still be mobile within the classroom.

              We are planning to make our webapp more mobile friendly in the near future!

            • Disconnect Student from all other teacher sessions when new session started for student

              If student goes from teacher to teacher. It would be nice to "disconnect" the student from all previous sessions when a new session starts that includes the same student. Currently multiple sessions started with same student assigned to different classrooms record the activity of the student(potentially, multiple teachers could have same student in active sessions at the same time).

              I feel doing this would allow for teachers to have more control of their classroom sessions and provide ability to create more features for teachers to use in their classroom, during Their sessions(Like teachers being able to set their own web…

              • Include multiple scenes in a single class and session.

                I would suggest making it possible to apply multiple scenes in a single class and a single session. If I have a small group, station setup, I could choose 4 students to have one scene, 10 students to have another scene, and 5 students to have a third scene. At this time, I would have to create three classes, three scenes, and three sessions to do this.

                This would also come in handy to slowly release students from a scene during testing. I could then monitor the students still in the testing scene, as well as the students in a…

                • Share and search scenes

                  Allow scenes to be classified as either public or private. Public scenes would be available other teachers to use, like the suggested scenes complied by GoGuardian. That way scenes could be shared between teachers in different schools and you could search for scenes for a particular topic (such as educational games). Private scenes would not be searchable or be shared with other users.

                  • 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?

                    • 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.

                            • Scrolling without the lock/unlock options moving

                              Scrolling without the lock/unlock options tool bar moving. With larger classes I have to scroll down to check a specific students name and then scroll back up to the top to lock and send message or to unlock. Would be convenient if that whole tool bar would be separate from student screens and able to access at all times.

                                      1) There should be an administrative feature for GG4Teachers where I can see all active classes, their settings, etc
                                      Then, I should have super admin rights to end a session, change settings, etc.
                                      2) Teachers in GG4Teahers should be able to see if their students are logged in under another current section.

                                      • Allow teachers to create alternate schedules.

                                        Our school has block days- but the block days are not always the same day of the week. I like that I can set a schedule and goguardian will turn on, on its own - but this is a problem if the schedule changes every other week. Even if we could turn off the schedule for the day (cancel it) so that we can then just create our own sessions for the day.

                                        • Substitute Log In (teacher can toggle on/off)

                                          Add an option for a teacher to activate a substitute teacher login/password straight from the teacher dashboard/settings. Something like "teachernamesub@school.edu"

                                          So, when I know I will be out, I can easily track students. We don't know subs emails that come in on a day-to-day basis so this make the process simple and streamlined.

                                          Even better if when the sub log in is activated, the password was automatically generated to something different each time.
