The Department of Education’s on-line environment called Connect provides teachers, students and parents with secure access to a collaborative on-line 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 in their class direct to the parents of students in that 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 username and password to provide you with access to Connect.
Connect allows teachers to provide general class information to you about the teaching and learning activities that his/her class are undertaking. It allows more flexible communication between parents and teachers, as well as providing personalised information about your child’s learning activities, progress and attendance.
