Cloud Based learning
All students have a unique cloud based learning account through RM Unify. This gives pupils the opportunity to use Google Classroom where they can submit both classwork and homework. There is also a selection of other applications that students can use to help practise English and Maths skills.
Students can log on using their normal school login using the site https://builehill.rmunify.com
Any parents interested in accessing the site can contact the main office and ask for the local RM engineer.
Digital information, technologies and the Internet are formidable tools which enable young people to explore new opportunities in a modern world. Electronic communication such as Google Classroom allow teachers to help students learn and develop. These technologies can stimulate discussion, promote creativity and raise awareness of context that promotes effective learning. Students who have access to the internet are more confident and are able to produce detailed, well researched and presentable projects.
At Builehill Academy, students are able to use the internet and related communications technologies appropriately and safely. The school’s e-safety policy helps ensure safe and appropriate use.
