Connecting with Classmates and Teachers
Beginning in Kindergarten students use Google tools and their @tcu2905.us accounts to create and collaborate in their classrooms. Maintaining student privacy is a high focus with these systems and we strive to ensure that any websites, apps and extensions that students use will protect their personal information according to The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
Guidelines for Collaboration: Tri-City United students engaging in distance learning are expected to follow the same policies as if they were in school. The Tri-City United Student handbook and board-approved policies strictly prohibit students from using district educational tools to engage in harassment, bullying, and inappropriate activity.
Google Apps for Education are used for TCU Email, Word Processing (Docs), Presentations (Slides), and other tools students use to learn and collaborate. Students under the age of 13 use these tools to share and communicate with teachers and collaborate with classmates who are part of the @tcu2905.us domain.
Google Meets is a video conferencing tool which allows students and teachers to meet together, present their ideas, and connect with one another. At this time K-8 students can attend Google Meets which are created by teachers and are unable to create their own.
Flipgrid is a program which allows for teachers to create an online assignment and students to respond with a video, text, or image.
