As part of the College’s support for students during this unprecedented time the Ebacc Department has set up online lessons and support using Google Classroom. Please follow the instructions below to get started:
To access Google classroom, students can either go to: http://classroom.google.com, download the Google Classroom app from their device app store or click the link below:
• a year 7 student named John Smith would have the username: firstname.lastname@example.org
• a year 9 student named Betty Boo would have the username: email@example.com
When first logged in, students will need to change their password. We suggest using their college username e.g. 17firstname.surname or writing down their own password for the system.
There will be some circumstances where students may have trouble logging in due to issues with usernames or passwords. In this instance, please can you email firstname.lastname@example.org with the year and name of the student that is having issues and we will aim to assist as promptly as possible.
Once logged in Google Classroom, students will need to join their classes.
Clicking on the “classwork” tab at the top enables the student to see the work that is currently active for this subject: If you click on it you will see the work set up similar to the History example below. Clicking on the link will show all the resources and also the date for completion.
Lessons will be set weekly and will contain a retrieval quiz, content to read and make notes on, selected videos and websites to use, and tasks to complete.
Finally, clicking on the “people” tab will allow the student to email your teacher with any questions they have. Please only use this function for urgent questions, as due to the current situation we may not be able to reply to all questions in a timely manner. Also, the email accounts have been locked to only work within the @sirjohnhunt.co.uk domain so sending and receiving external emails will not work for personal usage.
Students may access Google Classroom as soon as they are able, however the first lessons will appear from the week beginning Monday 14th April. It would be helpful if students attempt to log in as soon as possible, to identify any issues before the first lessons are set.
