    Really like the appearance of reporting and the web booking.

    GoGuardian Teacher

    GoGuardian Teacher is great for a teacher who needs a way to monitor student activities and work time on a laptop. It is easy to set up, simple to use and helps to keep students accountable when online in class. It integrates with Google Classroom which is a big help. It is more powerful for teachers experienced in using tech in the classroom. The archiving ability is great but the UX needs to improve.

    Pros

    ACTIVE Education

    • Separation of payer and the person attending the activity. For example: children incur charges, but the parent is responsible for paying them.
    • Fast - in our old system there was a delay while customers waited for the system to respond.

    GoGuardian Teacher

    • Cloud-based. Teachers do not have to monitor from just one device - they can do it from any device.
    • GoGuardian allows teachers to lock a student's screen when he/she needs the students attention.
    • GoGuardian allows the teacher to view all students' devices simultaneously.

    Cons

    ACTIVE Education

    • I really like the look and feel of ActiveNet Reporting, but it isn't extremely customizable. Maybe there is something I am missing, but other employees have shared that same feedback.
    • It would be nice to have the system synchronize with other software we use. (EMS, StarRez, etc.) When planning conferences, we currently have hotel guests and registration that we would like to share information for through each system. Currently it is just double data entry.
    • Would like to be able to add more resources and details to a room booking and have the corresponding departments be notified of the order/track inventory.

    • Students sometimes do not show up in the software despite being logged on to a Chromebook.
    • A Chromebook coming in and out of a sleep state can cause the user to not show up correctly.

    For a technology-heavy school, it is a necessary and good tool for managing classroom use of laptops. It is easy to set up and use. Helps track time on task and internet usage. Another source of data when speaking to parents about student work and activity. Can help plan and manage work time when you have limited devices.

    They have been great to work with while piloting and implementing the program. They are quick to answer our faculty's questions and provide solutions to the problems. They are also open to feedback and suggestions concerning the program to help improve the platform. Our teachers have felt at ease with the implementation and are happy with the progress.

    Alternatives Considered

    ACTIVE Education

    ACTIVE Network allowed: grouping of classes, good interface, allowed importing of records, complex payment plans, per class fee structures, user fees, and trial classes.

    GoGuardian Teacher

    At the time we purchased GoGuardian there were no other alternatives that came even close to the functionality of this product. Over time I'm sure that some new products have been released. We, however, have not explored any other software suites for classroom management. We may in the future but for now, we are locked into GoGuardian Teacher.

    Return on Investment

    ACTIVE Education

    • Not sure yet.
    • It is newer to me and my department.
    • Double data entry which is just extra man hours.

    GoGuardian Teacher

    • District invested a large sum into the program - but it has increased student engagement in the district.
    • Teachers are more aware of how on-task students are in the classroom.
    • Teachers are able to track sessions with the ease of scheduling before-hand.
