What is Google Suite for Education?

Google Suite for Education (GSfE or G:Suite) is a suite of tools that allows students and teachers to collaborate in real-time to create documents, presentations, surveys, spreadsheets and even websites. All tools are free, ad-free, reliable and secure. We encourage parents to sit down with their children to look at the school work stored within their child’s Google Drive, just as we encourage pupils to share their work with their parents.

Why are we using G:Suite?

G:Suite provides the ability for students and teachers to communicate, store files and collaborate on documents, spreadsheets, and presentations from school or home, all within a secure “closed campus” online environment. It is important to remember an educational Google account is structured and managed different to a “consumer” or “personal” google account.

What tools are available in G:Suite?

There are many tools available - some of the more common tools we may use are google classroom and google drive. Google drive is cloud based storage for all file types. Students have unlimited storage and can access their files from any device. Google classroom is a learning platform that integrates Google Suite to allow teachers to assign and collect work from students. Classroom creates a paperless environment and saves time providing a way for teachers and students to easily communicate and stay organised. We use both of these tools in conjunction with textbooks and copies through a blended approach to learning.
