Teach the Whole Child: How Innovative Approaches Lead to Incredible Learning

Anne Bianchi Anne Bianchi November 01, 2018

 

Hubspot 1200 x 627pxA Technology Specialist's insights on teaching the "whole child" with technology. 

At our school, we believe in one thing above all else: You must teach the whole child. All day, every day, no exceptions. It’s like Maslow's hierarchy of needs: If children don’t have their financial, emotional, or basic human needs met, they won’t be able to learn. At least not in any meaningful way.

This is the way we approach learning at Seatack ES, An Achievable Dream Academy. We have what some might call a unique approach to education. Kids in our program are given opportunities and access to certain extracurricular activities that, along with remediation, they simply wouldn’t receive within a regular public school program.

 GoGuardian’s got a fresh fall look: inspired by you!

At GoGuardian, we always build and adapt our products with our users in mind. As a customer-obsessed company, we’re continually assessing our users’ greatest frustrations, and looking to alleviate them. That’s why, in the past year, when you shared your feedback: we listened. We did some deep thinking about the challenges you encounter every day in your districts and produced creative solutions to meet your exact needs — from individual student reports for teachers, to the ability to test your filtering configuration, to proxy filtering support.

Today we want to share a few of the product updates that we’re most proud of. These enhancements were selected based on your feedback and designed with your workflows in mind. You’ll also catch a sneak peek at new features coming this fall to make student safety and classroom management easier and more efficient than ever.
