Welcome to the GoGuardian Reference Page
GoGuardian is a Chromebook monitoring and teacher facilitator application which helps students learn safely, stay focused, and get engaged. Features of GoGuardian include tab control, attention mode, screenshots, Google Classroom integration, link sharing, content filtering and so much more. While active teacher monitoring is still the best way to minimize distractions from the learning process, GoGuardian is a complementary tool to ensure that students are making good choices in our new digital environments.How EMUHSD Teachers Gain AccessThis software application is incredibly robust and has many features that can enhance your classroom technology integration tremendously. Although it is very easy to use and setup, given the Google Classroom integration, it has the ability to alter a student's Chromebook behavior even at times in which you are not scheduled to meet with your students. It is because of these powerful features that we would like all teachers who wish to utilize the GoGuardian software to take and complete the brief online training program prior to being given your access to the system.Simply enroll yourself into the free GoGuardian online training program here, using any email account credentials you choose. Once you complete the brief course, a certificate is sent to the email address you provided (if you don't receive a certificate you may also take a screenshot of the completed course). Simply forward the certificate or the screenshot to 'firstname.lastname@example.org' from your district email account...and the district's Helpdesk staff will enroll you into GoGuardian within 1 business day. You'll receive an email from GoGuardian saying your teacher account is ready, you'll navigate to https://teacher.goguardian.com and use the "Sign in with Google" option. After a successful login, you can begin to set up your classes, Scene permissions, and enjoy using the leading classroom management tool for Chromebooks.
