GoGuardian Teacher

How can we improve GoGuardian Teacher?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Better Control

    Students are still finding way to avoid the filters. They are able to go onto websites through a pop out screen which does not appear.

  2. be able to see uncheck messages from students after the session has ended.

    Sometimes students send messages during the session but I am unable to check them prior to the end of the session. Once the session ends, the messages disappear. It would be nice if we had the option to see the messages at an time.

  3. Selective scene

    I'd love to see a way to apply scenes to individual screens, not just to a group.

  4. Great program

    My school uses a wonderful new program, Go Guardian, to help teachers and administrators monitor the internet use of students. The tool comes in handy when students refuse to stay where they’ve been assigned. I can simply shut down a computer and send recorded data to the administration.

    But there are two other features that I love about the program. First, is the ability to enter into a student’s essay to provide “real-time” feedback. Instant one-on-one intervention. I can provide suggestions and corrections immediately…and I don't have the giant line of kids waiting in front of my desk or everyone…

  5. Password-locking Actions?

    Could there be a way to make it so teachers have to enter their passwords before confirming actions like student removal from a class? That way enterprising students couldn't remove themselves...

  6. Opening a Tab should override the applied scene

    Since we can open a tab for individual students, it would be excellent if that provided a scene override for that particular student. For example, all students testing are in a scene that restricts their access to sites that would allow cheating. Student finishes test early and now needs access to blocked sites. Opening needed tabs for that student allows everyone to have the needed restrictions while allowing the student to do other work.

  9. Block Direct IP Access WHITELIST

    Would love to have the ability to have a WHITELIST option next to the block direct IP access. Why? Because I do not want students to direct access an IP 99% of the time but in some cases our robotics team connects to their robots via an IP or two thus the whitelist would be very beneficial.

  10. Sessions-Off Button

    There should be a single-button option to turn off pre-planned sessions and scenes for just the day. It would help for the days a school has a mixed up schedule due to assemblies or other events. The sessions should start back up as normal the next day.

  11. Really dumb - seems like a "no brainer" - delete a scene or a class!

    There have to be teachers at GoGuardian who understand how stupidly simple is this request....

  12. Send Pop-Up Messages to individual students outside of Chat

    It would be great if I could send a one-way message to a student (without enabling the chat feature) which would pop up on their screen to redirect them or remind them to stay on task. If the pop up would require them to acknowledge it to clear it that would be even better. Kind of like the "Lock Screen Message" you can send, without having to lock the screen. I keep chat disabled as it becomes a distraction to the students, so a one-way message feature would be helpful.

  13. Add website categories for Government (house.gov, ca.gov etc.).

    Create a new Website Category for government websites. Such and federal or state sites like house.gov or ca.gov. There currently is no good place to categorize these site. Leaving them uncategorized implies they have not been vetted and does not allow the use of strict categorization.

  16. Make it so that it only comes into effect on SCHOOL COMPUTERS!

    GoGuardian keeps in effect on home chrome books too, which is SOOOO annoying!

  17. On the fly adjustments.

    Having the ability to limit the number of open tabs, or immediately block/allow a site while in a current session would make it much easier to manage students. This would limit the necessity to create different scenes depending on what you're doing that day in the calssroom.

  18. Make the Auto-Open Tabs the ONLY tabs that open

    "Leftover" activity from previous sessions currently fills up the other tabs (up to Maximum Open Tabs). This is distracting, but it can also prevent students from signing in to sites that require a pop-up for sign in.

  19. Clear lock screen so students can still read directions.

    Instead of making the screen black, allow students to still see and read what is on the screen but it is locked and they can't do anything else. Too many times I have directions I want them to read and they are hard to see on the screen. I want them to follow along but when the screen is locked they can't see the directions.
