Google Classroom, G Suite…what is it and how is my child using it to learn?

On September 27, approximately 20 parents joined K-12 Technology Coordinator Jonathan Redeker for the first of four Parent Google Trainings being offered by the district.

Redeker walked parents through G Suite so that they could see firsthand the tools their child uses on a daily basis. Using the district’s Chromebooks, parents were able to log into their child’s G Suite account, connect to their teachers’ Google Classrooms, and learn about Google Drive, Docs, Calendar and more.

All students in grades K-12 are assigned a G Suite account (formerly Google Apps for Education) so that they may easily connect to their teachers’ Google Classrooms and have instant access and sharing ability with teachers and classmates.

The three remaining Parent Google Trainings will be held on October 11, 18 and 25 at Goshen High School. Click here to register for Parent Google Training.
