Google Classroom Instructions

At JCSC students use Google Classroom to access resources and work set by their teachers. Google Classroom allows teachers to post and share class materials.

We recommend students download the Google Classroom App to receive notifications from their teachers when new work is posted or the class teacher wishes to send a message to the students. The Google Classroom app is available to download for free on Apple, Android or Chrome devices.

● Google Classroom can be accessed on a computer, mobile, tablet, and games console – including Xbox and PlayStation.

● Google Classroom can also be accessed by going online and entering the following web address: https://classroom.google.com/ It is recommended that the Google Chrome web browser is used to access Google Classroom.

Accessing Google Classroom from Home

Google Classroom can be accessed on a computer, mobile, tablet, and games console – including an Xbox or PlayStation. Watch the video to find out how you can login at home.

Logging into Google Classroom

Students log into Google Classroom using their school e-mail address for example studentusername@jcsc.co.uk and school password.

Students know how to add themselves to a Google Classroom. For students to join a class they should use the “+” option to enter the classroom code. Students can then gain access to all resources.

Understanding Google Classroom Functions

We recommend students download the Google Classroom App to receive notifications from their teachers when new work is posted or the class teacher wishes to send a message to the students. The Google Classroom app is available to download for free on Apple, Android or Chrome devices.

Using Google Meet for Live Lessons

Students may be able to access some live lessons when working from home (teacher/lesson dependent), if they are working from home.  Teachers will let students know if a live lesson is taking place by posting an update in Google Classroom.

Watch the video to find out what you need to do to join live lessons when you are at home.

Using an Xbox with Google Classroom

You can use an Xbox to access Google Classroom if you don’t have a computer or laptop, just follow these instructions

What to do if you need help with Google Classroom

If your son/daughter experiences any problems logging into Google Classroom you can email us at ictsupport2020@jcsc.co.uk for support.

Loaning Keyboards to use with game consoles and Google Classroom

If you don’t have access to a laptop or computer at home, you can use an Xbox or Playstation to edit documents and carry out work set by teachers. Using the controller to input letters can be time consuming so the school is offering to loan keyboards to those students who have no other access to a keyboard. Contact ictsupport2020@jcsc.co.uk to request a keyboard.

How to Use Kerboodle

We use Kerboodle to access Allez online. This Kerboodle user guide outlines how to use the remote learning tool.

Students in years 11-13 can access the dedicated Careers Google Classroom, where information is shared about further and higher education, virtual events, webinars, apprenticeships and other opportunities. Please contact Mr Moore for further information.
