Experts share strategies to help schools and teachers deliver instruction more effectively with Google tools


Some schools hoping to stretch their dollar and find success with one-to-one planning and implementation  are turning to Google for Education, a suite of devices, tools, and educational content aimed to increase student engagement while transforming teaching and learning.

On Feb. 20, eSchool News hosted a Google-sponsored webinar  about classroom technology integration, which focused on the benefits of using Google for Education products.

“The conventional thinking on education is no longer enough,” said Kristin Kahlich, a member of the Google for Education Team who helps schools to improve teaching and learning through open and affordable technology. “Google believes that technology is the way to improve education.”

She stressed the importance of continuing to embrace evolving technology in classrooms nationwide, especially because 60 percent of the next generation’s jobs have yet to exist – which suggests that they will be tech-oriented.
