Both in the remote learning survey feedback and at Parent Council on Thursday 28 January 2021, parents/carers asked for a little more information on Google Classroom so they could help their young person navigate it and also so they know how much work they are getting/what they are submitting. I hope you find that this document provides some helpful advice for you.
There is a Digital Drop-in every week day from 3.30pm - 5.30pm. More details are available at Midlothian Young People's Advice Service.

Support for Learning Staff have put together a Guide to Remote Learning. Dr Lyon and Mrs Wright are available to support you in your learning at home in addition to your subject teachers.
I know that you will be disappointed not to be in school with your friends and teachers and that learning at home may be challenging for you. I hope that the help and support you are receiving from your teachers is helping you to keep connected with your learning and with your school. Yesterday, the First Minister announced that schools would remain closed until the middle of February and I know that many of you will be feeling anxious about that and what it means for your learning. Full details available in letter issued 25 January 2021 from Lesley Brown, Director of Education.
Now that the new term is well underway, I wanted to write to you with a further update. This is not the way we were hoping to begin this year, but our schools have been preparing for the possibility of further remote learning since last year and you can be reassured that we are doing all that we can to support our children and young people. I am very proud of everything that our schools are achieving despite the restrictions that are in place. Full details available in letter issued 25 January 2021 from Lesley Brown, Director of Education.
It is important to set some time aside for yourself without interruptions, and also to have a good night's sleep.
We spend all day feeding our brain information, so when it comes time to turn it off, you should do the same thing to your phone too.
Consider setting your phone on Do Not Disturb particularly later in the evening and overnight to avoid email and Google Classroom notifications.
- Limit interruptions with Do Not Disturb on Android
- Use Do Not Disturb on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch
