The thing is though that I need to know what others are doing in branches they have made on their local machines that aren't on the repository.
You cannot. When someone clones a repository (presumably the main repository), the clone is independent of the original. You get to see what they've done only when they make a pull request or, God forbid, when they push their changes to the main repository. Given that your team is just starting with git I'd suggest to have only one person with write access to the main repository. In this case the other members will be forced to do pull requests and only one person will be able to accept those requests. At least you will know who should be hanged if things go south Poke tongue | ;-P

Regarding the other branches developers make on their own machines, normally you shouldn't care. Each one can have its own way of managing the development process on their machines, with more branches or less branches depending on their whims. The only thing that matters is what they bring back to the main repository through those pull requests.
