Are your children ill but able to complete school work? Have you decided to keep them home due to prevention? Or do you simply want have better and targeted communication with your teacher about the school work? Our response is start using Google Classroom again.
Given the popularity of Google Classroom, which was used and much appreciated during the school closure, we have decided to use it more as part of the school´s daily routine.
At the moment we will start using it to send homework to students who are, for a variety of reasons, absent. Then gradually we will start using it to set homework to all students or to share study materials.
During the first stage of putting the virtual classroom into practice, each teacher will use their own judgement as to how this resource will be used. We believe that both our teachers and students will enjoy using it to the point that it will become an indispensable tool for our mutual communication and cooperation. Some teachers are already using this.
Not only is the virtual classroom very clear and user-friendly but it also develops the students´ ICT literacy, as well as an active approach to their education and the students´ ability to organize their work appropriately. The children themselves see Google Classroom as a meaningful and hassle-free resource. They also appreciate its clear structure. The ability to use this resource is likely to become an asset for the children´s future education since using a virtual learning environment will inevitably become part of education in the future.
Another reason for the gradual increase in the use of Google Classroom on a daily basis is the school´s preparation for the possible closure of the school in the future. In this case Google Classroom will be used as a distance-learning tool. Already now we have some children whose parents decided to keep them home as a prevention or got stuck abroad. Google Classroom is an excellent and effective tool how to stay in touch with your teacher and continue fulfilling the learning plan.
To be able to set up or renew a Google account for your child, we need according to the GDPR rules your signed approval as your child’s legal guardian since while registration we are sending the personal data (name and surname) to Google.
