• Google Classroom -The primary method to conduct online continuous learning form home is through Google Classroom. By Friday afternoon of each week , teachers will post assignments on this platform outlining learning expectations for the following week. Teachers will focus on the work that is most essential for student progress. Teachers will assign a reasonable workload and encourage students to balance their online work with other needs. Using Google Classroom’s features, teachers can post messages and documents, embed links to content, comment on student work, and much more. Classroom also includes features that allows students to submit their work electronically and reply to their teachers and classmates. Each student has an individual Google Classroom account for each class. For questions about accessing Google Classroom, students should contact their teachers directly.
  • Google Meets - This video conferencing application serves as a secondary method to support online learning. Through the platform, teachers will offer Classroom Office Hours weekly in each course. Students will work on their Google Classroom assignments during the week and will check in with their teachers via Google Meets during Classroom Office Hours. Attending Classroom Office Hours will be tracked for attendance. We understand there are many various circumstances that may prevent a student from participating. If for some reason a student cannot participate in the designated time, we strongly encourage students to communicate with their teacher before or after.
  • GMail - Like Google Classroom, Gmail is a communication tool that EASTCONN students and teachers now have access to and will use regularly moving forward with our Online Continuous Learning from Home Plan.
