Abstract

This chapter aims to present a study that has explored the perceptions of post-primary school teachers, based at St Brigid's College in Derry, Northern Ireland, using Google Classroom (GC) to support pupils in remote and blended learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. The aims and objectives of the study are addressed through a mixed method approach. Data instrumentation consisted of teacher questionnaires, focus groups held with teachers, and semi-structured interviews with members of the senior leadership team (SLT). Quantitative data was analysed through Microsoft Forms, and qualitative data collected from the focus groups and semi-structured interviews was thematically analysed using NVivo. The findings of this study provide insightful suggestions as to the outlook for schools which integrate remote and blended learning systems post-COVID-19. Holistically, parents, guardians, pupils, and staff must be involved to sustain progress made by schools to support and enrich the educational experiences of all shareholders.
