What Football Can Teach Us About Time Management in the Classroom

GoGuardian Team GoGuardian Team September 23, 2019

The start of the school year always coincides with the start of football season. School and football may not seem like they have much in common at first, but you’d be surprised at how many skills they share—from discipline to learning game plans to addressing mistakes and then fixing those mistakes. Among the many similarities between the two, there is one shared skill that’s crucial for both football players and young students to develop and master: time management.

Creating a Zen Classroom to Improve Social-Emotional Learning (SEL)

Monica Boyer Monica Boyer September 19, 2019

We all know that stress and trauma play a huge role in a student’s academic success. Kids that experience chronic stress and/or trauma often perform poorly.

This article from Edutopia is just one of many articles that identify how dangerous stress, especially chronic stress, is for a student. Within the same article, the growth mindset is mentioned as a tool to help alleviate those negative effects of stress.

As “School Season” Comes to a Close

GoGuardian Team GoGuardian Team June 13, 2019

In the past few months, your favorite TV shows came to a close for the season. You watched your finales and perhaps saw previews of what’s to come in the fall, and hopefully you were excited for shows to return in a few months (except for one, maybe. Winter is sadly not coming again...but fall is!). In the television industry, it’s called a “hiatus.” In education, most call it “summer break.” But it all means the same thing: we break for summer and come back strong for the next season. The truth is, while the viewers are taking summer breaks from watching the show, the production keeps running in order to bring you top content for the fall. And that’s what we’re doing too.

GoGuardian never takes a break. In fact, we’ll spend the summer ramping up to bring you new products, features, and enhancements when the school year starts again. Like any good show does for its loyal viewers, we want to give you a recap of what you’ve seen thus far and a preview of what’s to come. Here’s the Spring Finale (past updates to products) and Fall Preview (future updates to products) of the show we call “School Year”:
