Google Classroom on Xbox and Playstation




Covid 19 has brought so many changes to our lives and with Level 5 lockdown being extended, we all have to find ways of dealing with school closures and with helping our kids do the best they can.

While some Parents can work remotely, this usually means that the home computer or laptop is in use. For households that do not have access to PCs, Laptops and Ipads but have gaming consoles, there is an option to access Google classroom via Xbox and Playstation.

Goosed.ie have the following tips for accessing Google classroom on Xbox and Playstation


Using Google Classroom on Xbox
If you’ve got an Xbox in the house, here’s what you need to do to run Google Classroom. This will work for Xbox One, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X.
  1. Turn the Xbox on
  2. Select My Games and Apps
  3. Scroll to Apps
  4. Open Microsoft Edge Browser
  5. When this opens, type Google Classroom into the search box
  6. Next, select Join Classroom
  7. Log in using the student email address and password

To make life easier, if you have them lying around, goosed.ie recommends a wired USB controller and mouse to plug into the Xbox as well. Just like that, you’ve free’d up your work laptop and your kids can attend school on “the big telly”.

Using Google Classroom on PlayStation
This works with PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
  1. Turn the PlayStation on
  2. Scroll to the right and select Library
  3. Here, search for Internet
  4. Open Internet Browser
  5. When this loads, press the triangle button to search
  6. Type in Google Classroom
  7. Next, select Join Classroom
  8. Log in using the student email address and password


Again, USB keyboard and mouse would be nice here.
