Digital learning is becoming the norm in K-12 schools across the world. Educators now realize the intricate role technology plays in the lives of today’s students, and the workforce they will enter in the future. The importance of incorporating the tools of tomorrow into the lessons of today is obvious to most of today’s educators.
But how do these educators know that their technology programs are having the intended impact on students? How do they know where to best allocate limited resources to have the greatest impact?
To answer this question, we have created a free analytical tool called GoGuardian Director. Director will provide greater clarity around usage and adoption rates of free and paid educational software, websites, and tools in your district. The dashboard centralizes analytics on the software usage and allows a high-level, macro-view of student engagement with the tools they use daily.
Director will allow educators to quantify the impact their technology program is having across the district, and inform important decisions. For example, school principals and Superintendents can use the Director dashboard to establish exactly which professional development courses and product training classes for their teachers may be most impactful.
Aza Steel, GoGuardian’s co-founder and CEO, reflected upon the many ways Director will help school districts. He said, “With GoGuardian Director, educators gain a transparent view into usage analytics on school devices. This will help them identify software adoption trends, highlight professional development needs, get a deeper understanding into the ROI of their purchases, and plan where...to invest in the future.”
We are proud to extend the invitation of early access to the beta of GoGuardian Director. Beta users like you will continue to help shape and guide the direction of our products. We have already heard incredible feedback, and are looking forward to hearing about the impact this new tool will have within your district. Thank you for your continued support and feedback!
