Remote Learning

The key benefits of Google Classrooms are:

  • Work is posted and handed in on the same website, removing the need to send an email in with attachments.
  • Tasks can be presented in a more user friendly way, with attachments and Youtube videos next to the task.
  • We can keep tasks on Google Classrooms for a longer period than on the website.
  • Feedback can be attached directly to the piece of work.
  • Google Classrooms has a shared ‘stream’ where staff can post messages and stay in touch, and children can respond.
  • No need for printing resources, or reduced need.

How do I use it?

  • Login and go to the classroom tab
  • Find the correct day
  • See each task – some are just instructions, others require a response!
  • You may need to ‘submit’ or ‘hand in’ the work.

A few common issues and questions:

  • Why the change?4 main reasons: 1) Improves communication and feedback of learning. 2) Safer 3) More efficient for teachers 4) Website requires high maintenance from teachers & staff, losing valuable child support time.

 

How do I login on an Apple or android?

  1. You need to add the account first. This is usually easiest done by going into the settings and adding a google account (this is the child’s email address ending in @yaptonschool.org). You may be asked to accept the conditions and also reset the password.
  2. Once the account is added, then install the Google Classroom and Google Meet app from the AppStore or Playstore.
  3. Then go into Google Classroom and ensure you are selecting the right account. You may need to select ‘I’m a student’. You will then see two classes.
