We’re all aware that Google has a suite of tools for education but are you aware of just how powerful they are when it comes to needing a central hub for all your classroom learning?

G Suite for Education is a one stop shop - allowing you to seamlessly communicate, connect, collaborate and manage all your files and tasks across all your departments - with all your students, staff and community.

  • How to navigate around your Drive
  • How to collaborate effectively with G Suite tools including Docs, Sheets and Slides
  • How to assign tasks and keep a track of student progress with Classroom
  • How to stay organised with Calendar
  • How to stay connected with Hangout Meet

Of course, these tools also allow us to maintain what’s truly important at times like these - our sense of community and our school values. In this webinar we’ll give you ways to maintain those all-important relationships and continue to build on the values that are the essence of your school.

 Tuesday 7th of April / 12:30pm:

Over the last 8 weeks we have worked with a number of international schools to transition to remote learning.

These 8 weeks have taught us a lot about:

  • What is working and what isn't
  • The phases of transition that teachers and students go through
  • How to best communicate to stay connected 
  • How the tools in the sessions above can empower great teaching and learning

Join us as we unpack our learnings, and hopefully help you navigate through the myriad of decisions you will be facing over the coming weeks.
