To make it easier for teachers and families to support children’s education from home, Google has launched the ‘Teach From Home‘ portal.
Teach From Home is a central hub of information, tips, training and tools from across Google for Education to help teachers keep teaching, even when they aren’t in the classroom.
Currently the page features support on how to connect with students virtually through their Hangouts tool and advice on how to do online quizzes using Google Forms. Google plan to add more advice over time to make it richer for Teachers to use.
Also, the team at Google Education have scheduled a virtual event for teachers and educational professionals at 12.30 pm on Friday 27th March. This session will provide the first steps for getting schools and teachers up and running with Google Classroom, Hangouts Meet and more.
Although the resource mostly focuses on tools to help teachers manage distance learning with their students, there is also a section for families called ‘[email protected]‘.
[email protected] highlights fun and educational channels that children can watch at home that can help them learn about specific topics. The recommended channels are organised by age (Channels for families with kids 13 & older, Channels for families with kids 5 & up and Channels for families with preschoolers).
This is a great resource for families to use to complement homework while making the most of the YouTube platform.
