South Lanarkshire recently activated G Suite for Education in all secondary schools. G Suite for Education is the same set of apps that are available with a free Google account —Gmail, Docs, Drive, Calendar etc — but designed with features that have been included specifically to make work easier and bring teachers and students together. In SLC these apps are accessed through Glow.
At Hamilton Grammar we’ve been focusing on 3 of those apps in particular; Google Classroom, Google Drive and Google Forms. These apps are being used by staff in a number of different subject areas to share classroom resources, issue & collect homework and support revision in certificate classes.
A number of staff have also completed the training to become Google Certified Educators, demonstrating their commitment to using ICT to enhance learning across the curriculum. You will see the following logo beside any member of staff who has become a Google Certified Educator.
