Session Description
Having 1:1 Chromebooks in classrooms might be intimidating if teachers cannot see actual student screens.  Learn how GoGuardian for Teachers can solve this dilemma!  Using GoGuardian, teachers can view continuous live images of each Chromebook, remotely open and close tabs, record the history of sites used during class and even blank out screens when attention is needed.  We will explore many of the great features of GoGuardian for Teachers in this workshop.
