The Riverside PTA's Digital Learning Environment and Remote Learning School reps have proactively listed useful information for all families in the event the school, or a particular class section, switches to remote learning at any point in time. Here are some Digital/remote learning resources & help for Riverside School parents.

Resources

★ Explore the GPS Remote Learning Website which provides overviews and information about

the resources GPS uses to enhance remote learning, as well as resources to help support your

child's social and emotional learning

 

Scroll down the GPS Remote Learning webpage to find:

  • Text and/or video introductions to Google Classroom and other tools from the Google Suite to Seesaw, IXL, ST Math, Core 5, and Schoology
  • Tips to create a Living and Learning Environment
  • Resources for Social-Emotional Support

★ Parents who want to take a deeper dive into the apps their student uses for learning in school

and for homework can explore the Teacher space on the GPS Remote Learning Website

and the Digital Toolbox on the district webpage, where you’ll find brief tutorials and information

for several resources like Book Creator, Brain Pop, Khan Academy, nearpod and newsela.

 

★ Find more information on Epic (a digital reading platform that the GPS uses)

Learn what Epic is about, how to use it at home for free, and get some answers to FAQs.

individual option not used in every classroom. More information on Guardian Summaries
