How Does My Child Access Google Classroom?
Setting up your child’s account for Google Classroom is simple. Their teacher does most of the work. Your child’s teacher will set up the Classroom and provide a class code for your child to enter. Educators can also invite learners by email. When access has been granted, your child can get into their Classroom any time by going to classroom.google.com.
For older learners who have different educators for different subjects, multiple classrooms will appear. From their dashboard, they can select the Class they want to view. Once they enter a classroom, learners find three tabs at the top of the screen.
- The Stream tab will be the first thing they’ll see when they log on. It is the announcement page where educators share important messages as well as online materials. It also provides a full overview of assignments, and any other posts the educator includes.
- The Classwork tab stores all your child’s academic assignments. They’ll see each learning activity (assignment) that’s been added by their educator. When your child clicks on a task, they’ll get the due date, details, resources needed, and status of the learning activity (assignment). Learners also can turn in their work here once it is completed. They can add files or create slideshows and images to be submitted.
- The People tab shows all the educators and learners in the Classroom. It is also a place where learners can communicate directly with one another or their educator through email.
