Google Suite for Education – our Virtual Learning Environment
At Beechwood we use the Google Suite for Education as our Virtual Learning Environment. It plays an important role in supporting the learning that takes place at Beechwood.
There is a virtual Classroom for each subject taken. In this classroom the teacher can ask questions, post announcements and set homework. Students also have the option of submitting work online.
Each student has an account that has unlimited storage and allows students access to resources and the ability to work on school tasks in school and at home. They have access to the Google versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and many more applications. All of which are free to download onto other devices.
Parents are linked to each classroom and will receive notification of homework set by email. The students also have their own gmail account and calendar. The latter will regularly update with any timetable changes and notice of school events relevant to the student.
