In the event of Academy closure or student absence, students can continue to access their learning remotely, and for this we use Google Classroom. All students have a Q3 Academy Great Barr Google Account that they can use to access this which will allow them in turn to see resources and activities specific to their classes. Students can log in to Google Classroom using their Academy email address which is in the format firstname.lastname@example.org and their password which is the same as the one they use to log on to an Academy device.
Watch this video here to see how to use Google Classroom.
Google Classroom can be easily accessed through the internet browser of any device connected to the internet (mobile phone, tablet, computer/laptop, smart TV, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, or XBox, etc.).
Where using a mobile device or tablet, students may find it helpful to download the Google Classroom app and relevant Google apps such as Google Docs and Google Sheets to allow them to edit shared files. These are available in the App/Play Store.
