Google Classroom ‘How To’ Videos for BUSD Families

 

Families, are you still figuring out how distance learning works? 

Parents, are you able to follow how teachers give assignments digitally, and whether your child has turned their assignments in?  

Guardians, do you know how to communicate with your child’s teacher during distance learning?

 

A team of Berkeley Schools Volunteers spent all summer producing a series of 15 ‘how to’ videos to HELP FAMILIES ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS!  All the videos help families navigate Google Classroom, BUSD’s core 3rd-12th educational platform.

 

*** The videos are now available here in English and in Spanish!
