We use GoGuardian admin (not the teacher console).  Pricey but effective.

Teachers aren’t interested in babysitting devices, and focus instead on
holding students accountable to our agreement.  If/when questions or
problems rise above basic classroom management issues, I (or the folks in
IT) use GoGuardian admin to gather information and then consult with admin
as needed.

We also use GoGuardian to monitor for keywords/phrases and generate
automatic reports which we review for warning signs or truly inappropriate
use.  GoGuardian  provides some measure of additional filtering on our
1-to-1 devices when they’re taken home, which has been invaluable.
