LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GoGuardian, an educational technology company that provides digital learning tools for K-12 schools, announced today the launch of Google Classroom Integration for GoGuardian for Teachers, a product currently used by teachers of more than 200,000 students in nearly 1,000 school districts. GoGuardian for Teachers connects teachers to students in real-time, allowing teachers to view and interact with the assignments students are working on, and share appropriate online resources when necessary.
Google Classroom is a widely used web-based solution that allows educators to integrate their suite of Google services, like Docs and Gmail, with their Google Apps For Education account. This integration pairs Google’s robust tools to organize and disseminate assignments and information with GoGuardian’s tools facilitating classroom management and communication. Teachers can connect with their students in real-time and ensure that students are always protected from harmful or distracting content, while navigating through assignments that are easily distributed and collected through Google Classroom.
“We design all of our products with teachers, admins and students in mind, but this feature in particular was the direct result of input and requests from the educators we talked to,” said Tyler Shaddix, the GoGuardian for Teachers Product Manager. “In today’s K-12 education landscape, the move to a more personalized learning environment catered to each student’s individual needs is unprecedented,” Shaddix said, “and technology is playing an increasing role in this movement as devices become more affordable, manageable, and readily available to schools. We want to continue playing a role in ensuring teachers have convenient access to every tool at their disposal.”
As shown in this GoGuardian video, the integration allows users to easily sync Google Classroom, the associated students, and their GoGuardian for Teachers dashboard, creating a powerful digital learning scenario. By providing educators with an easy-to-use platform that lets them engage with students and promote responsible digital citizenship, GoGuardian helps schools discover how students best learn and adapt to meet their needs.
GoGuardian provides education software that keeps students safe when they're online, helps teachers better engage with their students, and provides schools with more control over how their technology is used. With GoGuardian, teachers and administrators can harness the power of the Internet for learning, without harmful content or distractions getting in the way. GoGuardian software is easy to implement and manage across entire districts, and convenient to access through a user-friendly dashboard—anytime, anywhere.
