Google Workspace for Education and Chromebooks
Access to information is changing the way we communicate and learn.
Google Workspace for Education and Chromebooks now makes inspiring learning easier and can transform education.
Gladstone Road School has successfully implemented the use of Chromebooks and Google Workspace for Education across the school. Starting with a single set of Chromebooks which were setup as a test for a select number of Year 6 pupils to try out, our vision was to provide a Chromebook for every pupil Year 1 – Year 6 and develop their practice so that all pupils have an extensive Chromebook provision which is used effectively across the age-groups and curriculum. We acheived this and now the resources are being enjoyed by everyone using them.
We will be running a number of training sessions for teaching staff, and also offers on-site technical support to maintain the Chromebooks and Google Workspace environment.
