Google and Tech Support

We have used Google Suite for Education for a while, but we are now looking at ways in which we can utilise the apps more. We are also use Times Table Rock Stars, Nessy, Reading Eggs and Reading Plus for different children throughout the school.

Using xbox or a playstation to access remote learning

If you have either a PlayStation or Xbox at home you can use them to get onto Google Classroom or other internet application and websites:

Xbox

  • Plug a keyboard into the Xbox USB slot.

  • Go to my games and apps.

  • Find and select Microsoft Edge.

  • Navigate to your online learning platform.

PlayStation

  • Identify the PlayStation internet browser icon (WWW with dots around it).

  • Press the PlayStation logo on the controller.

  • Go to the library and find options for games and applications.

  • Go to applications and you will find the internet browser.

  • Navigate to your online learning platform and log in as usual.

You will be able to access Google on any device that connects to the internet and there are apps for Classroom, Drive and Docs that can be downloaded onto Android and Apple devices too.

If you are not able to do the work online, you can still work with pen and paper and photograph it and either email to the class teachers or upload it on Google Classroom.

Google Suite for Education

All the children have a login for this service, these can be monitored and disabled at anytime. For children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 we ask that parents access the suite until the children are able to do so on their own. The following videos will hopefully guide you through the basics.

We will continue to add information and videos to this page, please keep on checking back.
