Virtual Learning

Microsoft Teams

For pupils self isolating the main access to learning resources continues to be through Microsoft Teams. Teams specific to subjects and individual classes continue to be updated, if you do not appear as a member of a Team relevant to you please contact your class teacher in the first instance.
Microsoft Teams can be accessed by logging into GLOW. The Microsoft Team’s tile can be found on your launch pad. Alternatively you can use the Microsoft Teams App which can be downloaded to various electronic devices. Some useful guides are provided at the bottom of this page.

NL Virtual Classrooms

As part of an ongoing offer for children and young people, particularly those who may be isolating due to Covid – 19, the Digital School will continue to update the NL Virtual Classrooms.
 The first update will go live from Monday 30th August and will still be accessed in the same way as before through the Virtual Classroom tile on Glow. As before, the classrooms are differentiated by colour and include an ASN room as well as a Gaelic room.  Click on the guides below for more information.
