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.
