      We’ve just released the ability to see running apps! When viewing a student, running apps will be displayed in the “open tabs” section.

      We will continue to work on improving visibility of apps and extensions in GoGuardian Teacher. Currently, running apps will not show on a student’s screen (only in their tabs). Stay tuned!

      We're still working with Google on this. They are aware of the need and looking for solutions.

        Hi, Elizabeth. Can you explain a little more about what you'd like to see? We currently offer the ability to send students to websites (https://goguardianteacher.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/209931133-Interacting-with-Chromebooks-Commands-#opentab), but it sounds like this doesn't completely fit your need.

          Hi, John. Are these concerns regarding GoGuardian for Teachers running during lunch or breaks?

          We currently offer the ability to set "school hours" that only allow the product to be used during a certain time each day. We also offer the ability to restrict students from connecting outside of the school's network. Here is a help article regarding this topic: https://goguardianteacher.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/206535306-Product-Settings.

          Would enabling these settings help with the concern?

            Hi Danielle,

            Can you describe this idea a little more?

            Thanks!

                Hello!

                Great minds think alike! We are happy to share we have officially launched our new “Scenes” feature that allows you to manage a student’s tab usage and prevents them from opening additional tabs. This new feature also includes other useful tools such as having the ability to auto-open tabs, and provides even more ways to manage site accessibility in your classroom. Our goal is to help you worry less about keeping kids on task so you can focus on what you do best…teaching!

                Check it out and please let us know what you think!

                There is another idea to have students "locked" to a website (they can't leave that website and all open tabs must be on that website). Would that solve this?

                Hey Jacqueline!

                So is this idea to keep students on a single website, or just to only allow them to have one tab open at all times (but able to browse anywhere on that one tab)?

                  Great idea! We are currently in development of this feature for the Admin product and it will soon be ready to go!

                    Good news! We now have this planned for a future release.

                    Great idea! Would you be open to chatting about this in the near future?

                      Hello!

                      Thank you very much for the wonderful suggestions. We are happy to share we have officially launched our new “Scenes” feature that supports the ability to create a “test environment” in your classroom that keeps students on a specific site. This new feature also includes other useful tools such as having the ability to auto-open tabs, manage tab usage (set the max number of tabs a student can open), and provides even more ways to manage site accessibility in your classroom. Check it out and please let us know what you think! We love hearing from you.
