At Dunclug College we are committed to blended learning recognising the importance of work in school and at home, of work at desks and indeed work online. The ability of your child to function and flourish in a digital world will be crucial to their future success and we appreciate that it also offers opportunities not afforded by solely face to face traditional teaching approaches. Our staff are committed to providing your child with a blended learning experience combining written work and activities in class with digital learning in school and at home. We appreciate the importance of partnership between us and you as parents and we want you to draw alongside us in the provision of your child’s education.

Your child is enrolled in a Google Classroom for all of their timetabled classes. Access to Google Classroom is possible through multiple browsers and across multiple devices including PC, mobile phone, laptop, tablet or even games consoles such as Xbox. Through this virtual learning environment your child should be able to complete tasks, see work completed in class, link to online resources uploaded by his/her teacher, access video presentations of his/her teacher and much more. There is a facility in Google Classroom for a parent/carer to be added allowing you access to what your child sees and allowing you to maintain a watching brief on their work in school.
Teachers can be contacted through Google Classroom but this method of communication should never be used in an emergency or for communications not directly linked to work in class.

Whilst this guidance material focuses on the digital the power of talk and discussion in your child’s development and learning cannot be overemphasised. Talking to your child in the evening about what he/she did in lessons that day, discussing what he/she learned, checking his/her planner, checking work on Google classroom is up to date and helping him/her pack for the following day all contribute significantly to progress.
