ScholarBuys hosted a webinar with GoGuardian last week to bring you solutions for your Chromebooks. GoGuardian is a great tool for protecting students from unwanted or non-secure content and to track their learning and how they utilize their Chromebooks. The webinar covered GoGuardian for Admins and for Teachers.
