GoGuardian for Teachers Adds Google Classroom Integration

GoGuardian has integrated its GoGuardian for Teachers classroom management and communication tool with Google Classroom.

"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," according to a news release.

As a result of the integration, teachers will be able to connect with students in real time while ensuring that they are protected from harmful or distracting content. Users will also be able to sync Google Classroom, associated students and the GoGuardian for Teachers dashboard.

"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 a prepared statement. "In today's K-12 education landscape, the move to a more personalized learning environment catered to each student's individual needs is unprecedented, 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."
