Why is G Suite the best solution for your teachers and students?

Google is one of the most trusted brands internationally.

If you mention a search engine, Google is often the first answer. If you think about email, Gmail is the one most people use. But did you know that Google owns YouTube? And did you know there are so many great, simple tools that can work for your school district and in turn, your schools.

Google has developed potentially the greatest educational commodity in G Suite. Everything you need in one place: Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, and much more.  In 2006, Google launched G Suite for Education (previously known as Google Apps for Education), ensuring that all staff and students could log in and utilize Google in one place rather than a large annual subscription for multiple licenses from other competitors. In addition, the launch of Google Classroom has proven a new level of commitment from Google to the educational community.  Google strives to listen to educators, making informed decisions and regular software updates based on teacher feedback provided within G Suite apps such as Google Classroom. Bottom line - G Suite for Education is already an amazing solution for schools, and it is improving at a rapid rate to best meet the needs of teachers and students.

Ensuring all schools within your district are on the same page is incredibly important. If schools are using different software, this can cause an absolute headache for you overseeing and supporting the technology. Having G Suite within your schools enables everything to be on one platform and  controlled within one administrative panel.

The technology adoption challenge is evident in our K-12 classrooms, often resulting from a lack of effective professional development (PD). Even if PD is offered to educators, it may, unfortunately, consist of “sit and get”, one-size-fits-all training that fails to address the unique needs of our adult learners. This hinders teachers’ ability and motivation to appropriately infuse technology into their practice. We often talk about personalizing learning for our students, and we believe this begins with personalizing professional learning for our teachers and leaders.

The Importance of a Successful Introduction of GSuite across your School District

Successfully introducing G Suite for Education is one of the most progressive measures you can undertake, if it goes right. If not, you could be the educational pariah of your district.

Often districts and schools will buy into Google implementation because they know and believe in the impact G Suite can have across teaching and learning, as well as productivity. However, without proper implementation, how do you know schools are using it properly, if at all?

We get it; it’s a struggle to keep tabs without feeling like you’re policing the schools you oversee. We hear from districts all the time who are looking for a simple solution to monitor the progress of technology initiatives.

Top 3 tips on successful implementation of GSuite in your school district

Look no further. Understanding the adoption of G Suite across your entire district is much simpler than you think - and you can start right away!  We’ve collected some of the best tips to guide you in successfully introducing G Suite in your district successfully.

  1. Create a professional development plan that helps ensure that your teachers are using G Suite to the best of their ability. (Cheat sheet - download our Professional Planner here)

  2. Get teachers involved in the purchasing decisions in order to ensure you understand what they are looking for from a pedagogical point of view. This also enables you at a district level to teach educators about purchasing decisions.

  3. Educate teachers on why they should use Chromebooks and/or G Suite, rather than how to use the product.
