Online Learning Resources for Parents and Families
Online Learning Resources
Here are resources to help parents and families assist students in online learning in our virtual start. While we are learning outside of the school building, we want to provide as much support remotely to help you and your children navigate distance learning from home.
Learning Opportunities for Parents:
Supporting Students with Social Emotional Learning/Executive Functioning When Using Technology (intended audience is both teachers and parents)
Supporting Your Student in Google Apps (G-Suite)
In collaboration with your student, ask them to login to G-Suite with you daily at the beginning and end of the day. The account username is your student’s @email and your student will have their password. Go to https://www.fcps.edu/resources/technology/g-suite/g-suite-information-students-and-parents to learn how to log your student into their gmail account.
- Go to your student’s Google Drive http://drive.google.com
- On the left-hand side, you‘ll see Recent.
- Recent will allow you to see all Recent documents your child has been working on.
- Check the documents listed on a daily basis.
Google Email (Gmail)
Go to your student’s Gmail (http://gmail.google.com) to view email messages your child has sent or received.
To save any Blackboard Collaborate Ultra links from their teachers, search the term "invitee" and star each of those emails.
Go to: http://classroom.google.com. Each box on this screen represents a class your child is enrolled in.
Click a box to open a Google Classroom. Once a classroom is opened, at the top of the screen click Stream and Classwork to view both areas. Stream is for announcements and class discussion/Q&A. Classwork will list class assignments.
Supporting Your Student in Blackboard
Login to Blackboard http://fcps.blackboard.com with your Parent View account
Click on your student’s name to view their courses.
Open each course to see assignments
Parents will be able to view most materials that have been posted in your child’s classes. If you click on something and can’t access it, ask your student to log in to view that resource or assignment.
Teachers will likely use a combination of Blackboard and G Suite. Students will need to log into GSuite for you to view their work.
