G Suite for Education, including Google Classroom - what is all the fuss about?

    Published: 11 November 2016

    Herts for Learning is offering a product called G Suite for Education, in conjunction with Google. Google recognises the importance of collaboration and has built G Suite with functionality to do this and more.  Students can access their accounts anywhere, anytime, allowing a consistent approach, even when at home.

    G Suite is a combination of online software tools, including Google Drive (for sharing individual files with unlimited Cloud storage), Google Classroom (a virtual learning environment) and Google Docs, Sheets and Slides (an alternative to Microsoft office).  HfL offer a service to integrate the software into a current school’s network and will also supply training and support from Level 2 Google Certified Educators.

    A number of Hertfordshire schools have already integrated G Suite and they can see a real impact in the delivery of ICT and are using it to link to other areas of the curriculum.

    Herts for learning is running twilight taster sessions – G Suite, what is all the fuss about?  Schools can find out more, see the G Suite demonstrated and gain hands-on experience using the system. The sessions are led by HfL’s Level 2 Google Certified Educators and are suitable for headteachers, ICT leads and network managers. There will also be a chance for delegates to meet two Google representatives; Devin Regis (Google EMEA Program Manager) will be attending the session in Rickmansworth and James Leonard (Google UK Regional Manager) will be attending the other two sessions at HDC and Peartree Primary School, Stevenage.
