How to use Chrome extensions

It is useful to sync your browser with your school Gooogle Workspace account. Benefits include access to a curated castletroycollege.ie browser extension collection in the web store. These are useful especially for support with reading, organisation and other key skills.

Your default home page once synced is the student digital learning hub with quick access to supports for digital learning.

You can access Google Classroom on XBox and PS4. Click on the link here for instructions. With a basic usb keyboard you may find this easier than working on a mobile phone.

Staying well and looking after everyone in our community is what matters most. Go to the wellbeing page for tips to help you stay well and be happy..

A Study Buddy is someone you study alongside with, offering each other support, discussing ideas and working together on collaborative assignments. Your teachers know that students are happier and learn better if they work with others.

If you are absent from school buddy up online with the person you sit beside in each class and with your friends.

Learn practical digital skills at home
