As many of you have heard, we have purchased an application called GoGuardian to help teachers monitor student devices at the 5-12 level. This tool works through Google Chrome and Google Classroom to allow teachers to monitor devices.
Implementation has gone well! We already have 2190 connected students, which is a large portion of our 5-12 student population. Training has been offered at each building and has gone well.
As with any product or new thing, there have been bumps along the road! A few bumps that have come up and solutions:
- If 2 teachers have access to the same Google Classroom, one teacher needs to add the classroom to their GoGuardian account, then add the other teacher through GoGuardian.
- Many have asked about the daily implementation emails. I’ve created a screencast, using QuickTime on my MacBook to show how to change a preference in GoGuardian to not get the daily email. It’s found HERE.
As questions arise around GoGuardian, please let me know!
