We are using the @nycstudents.net accounts this year to get into Google Classroom. If you don't know your child's username or need to change the password go to https://idm.nycenet.edu/students/start.form. You will need to know their OSIS number.
Google Classroom will be the way assignments will given to all students grade k-5. Although the assignments will be there that does not mean you will have no contact with your child's teacher.
Gmail will be how your teachers send messages to the class about assignments and resources. Gmail will also be the way your students will get alerts for when a virtual class, led by the teacher, will take place.
Meet is the video conferencing app that teachers will use to present their lessons to the class. Students will get an invite to join a Meet. The teacher will lead the lesson and students can ask questions and even conference among themselves to work collaboratively. Students can also use Meet to virtually visit their friends when class is not in session.
Google Docs will be the app to create, edit and collaborate with others on documents. With Google Docs you can hand in writing assignments. You can share your work with your teacher by clicking the share button on any document.
