We are pleased to share that we have enabled a new app called GoGuardian Parent.
Parents/guardians are now able to monitor the internet activity of their children and create controls around times of use.
GoGuardian Parent is a mobile app to help keep you aware of your children's activity on school-issued devices and provide you with additional controls during out-of-school hours. GoGuardian Parent is a companion to the classroom management and internet filtering tools that your child's school uses for devices issued to students.
GoGuardian Parent was created to help provide additional educational support to administrators and teachers by allowing parents to see what sites and documents their children are browsing and providing parents with additional internet controls at home. The app gives parents a bird's eye view of the apps and websites that their kids are on most often and control over school-issued devices during out-of-school hours.
What's the intention of the app?
By providing insight and controls over student browsing activity, our goal is to empower parents to take a more active role in their children's online learning. We aim to create a greater sense of transparency with student browsing to help bring about a greater sense of accountability on both the parent's and the student's part.
We encourage parents to have a conversation with their children about their browsing activity and the usage of this app. The child will get a notification when the parent begins to use the app.
