To Block or Not to Block: The State of Chromebook Filtering in Schools

Marielle Gilbert February 27, 2018


They say good things come in threes: the “rule of three” is invoked across mediums, from folk tales to blockbuster trilogies. The principle of omne trium perfectum, that suggests information presented in a triad is inherently more perfect or effective, still holds water today. At GoGuardian, we approached our three-part Benchmark Report with this in mind.

This Thanksgiving, Students Become the Teachers

Marielle Gilbert November 17, 2017



“The miracle of gratitude is that it shifts your perception to such an extent that it changes the world you see."
— Dr. Robert Holden

For Thanksgiving this year, we want to hear all about your gratitude. Specifically your gratitude for your students. We flipped the script and asked teachers to tell us about a time when a student taught them something about technology.
