Digital Learning Days
A Digital Learning (DL) Day is intended to replace a snow (or other weather-related) make up day in the event that we have already used all of the planned make up days. If GCPS decided to hold a "DL" Day, it would mean that the school building is closed for the day. However, the teachers would place work for students to complete at home (on the DL Day) on their eCLASS Course Pages.
My eCLASS (Student Portal) is an exciting tool to support teaching and learning in Gwinnett County Public Schools.
My eCLASS is comprised of online resources like textbooks, media research, Classworks, and an online learning platform. The online learning platform is the online vehicle teachers will be using to deliver lessons and activities. Students will log on to their My eCLASS account and visit their Course Pages to complete activities or submit work.
Please refer to your teacher on the specific details on how and when they will be accessing BYOD in their room. Pharr's wi-fi is for student learning purposes only.
Please see the helpful skills all BYOD students NEED to know before bringing a device to school:
At Pharr, students will learn about Being a Good Digital Citizen. Digital Citizenship is a concept which helps teachers, technology leaders and parents to understand what students/children/technology users should know to use technology appropriately. Digital Citizenship is more than just a teaching tool; it is a way to prepare students/technology users for a society full of technology. Digital citizenship is the norms of appropriate, responsible technology use. For more information on this topic, visit one of the websites below.
