What is it?
GoGuardian Teacher provides teachers with a portal to direct students' attention to specific online resources and close off-topic tabs on one or more devices. The goal of GoGuardian for Teachers is to help keep students on-task and away from inappropriate content.
How do I get it?
First, you will need to submit a HEAT Ticket to request a GoGuardian account. Once that account has been created by technology, you will complete the online training found at GoGuardian's website (link), then fill out the application (link) to have the service activated for your district Google account. Expect an email from Cody Belcher (Denton ISD Technology) and GoGuardian.
Both emails will be sent to the user's @g.dentonisd.org account.
GoGuardian and Remote Learning Considerations.
GoGuardian cannot be used to monitor students at home, using the teacher application. This is only possible inside the Denton ISD network.
The GoGuardian extensions are automatically attached to a student or teacher's g.dentonisd.org account. When sigend into the Chrome browser with this account, regardless of the device, student web traffic will be monitored if the student is on the DISD network.
When signed into a Chrome browser with a district Google account (@g.dentonisd.org), student and staff web traffic will be filtered, regardless of whether or not they are on their home network. Browsing activity, however, is not reported to the district when done outside of the Denton ISD network. This is to ensure student and staff privacy when on their home networks is protected.
