The Department of Education’s online environment called Connect provides teachers, students and parents with secure access to a collaborative online learning environment, via the internet.
The aim of Connect is to provide a secure internet service that will allow teachers to provide information about the teaching and learning activities occurring with their class directly to the parents of students in their class. Participation in Connect is optional for parents. If you would like to take part you will require internet access and a computer. No additional software is required.
The Department of Education will issue you with a unique user name and password which will provide you with access to Connect. Initially, Connect will allow teachers to provide general class information to you about the teaching and learning activities that his/her class are undertaking. In the future, the service may be further developed to allow more flexible communication between parents and teachers as well as providing personalised information about your child’s learning activities and progress.
