Many pupils will be encouraged to use Google Classroom as a resource to assist them both in the classroom and at home. Teachers can use Google Classroom to send announcements to entire classes, share resources, course notes, PowerPoints, diagrams, and homework. Pupils can use it to access work covered in class in school at home or on the go and complete homework. Parents can opt to receive email summaries of their students classroom activities to help engage with and support pupils in their home study. It is a free resource that can be accessed from any device connected to the internet – laptops, desktop computers, Chromebooks, tablets or mobile phones.
We would highly encourage pupils to demonstrate the following features of Google Classroom to their parents/carers.
The following documents give a little more information about Google Classroom for pupils, parents and staff.
