What is GoGuardian?
GoGuardian is a software that helps easily manage student devices, better understand student activity, and keeps students safer online.
How is GoGuardian being used at Wilson?
We have services to:
- Help protect students against harmful and inappropriate online material
- Help students stay “scholarly” and more focused when learning online
- Helping assess students’ progress towards class assignments
- Facilitating communication between teachers and students during class time
When and how does GoGuardian operate?
GoGuardian’s web-based services operate on our school’s managed Google Suite for Education Chrome accounts (i.e., when a student is logged into Chrome or a Chromebook with his/her school email address). A teacher must login and begin a session in order for the monitoring to begin.
What are my parental/guardian and child’s responsibilities?
We ask that students use their school-managed Google accounts and school-managed devices for educational purposes. While GoGuardian is available, not all teachers will be using it daily. When a student is online, parents are responsible for supervising internet access and usage. We encourage you to discuss rules for appropriate internet usage with your child and reinforce lessons of digital citizenship and safety with him or her. We also highly encourage you to report any potential cyberbullying or other sensitive issues to us.
