New to Google Classroom?

Google have just released some new content to their Teacher Center (yes it’s the American spelling!) for teachers who are getting started with Google Classroom.  It’s called ‘First day of classroom” and is currently featured on the front of the Teacher Center but can be reached directly via https://teachercenter.withgoogle.com/first-day-trainings/welcome-to-classroom

It includes video tutorials on the basics of using Google Classroom to share links, set assignments and much more.

For teachers who wish to hone their Google for Education skills further we recommend you investigate the Google Educators qualifications.  You can find out more and access the free Level 1 training resources at https://teachercenter.withgoogle.com/fundamentals/preview

Autumn Google for Education Events from 123Cloud Solutions

Successfully received events

123Cloud Solutions has completed a round of well-attended and successful Google for Education events in Swindon and Oxfordshire over the past few weeks.

We had a total of twenty-nine staff from sixteen schools take part in our hands-on workshops from around Swindon and Oxfordshire.

In the sessions we demonstrated the value and flexibility of Cloud file storage and demonstrated the power of Google Classroom as a ‘glue’ for classroom work.  We demonstrated that teachers can easily share files, videos and web links and also can hand out work individually or collaboratively BUT also keep ultimate access to that work in an easy to manage way.

All of the staff who attended spent time using one of two models of Chromebook loaned to us by Asus.

We are planning future events in Banbury for the Spring of 2019 (more news to come shortly) and we are also looking towards visiting Aylesbury or nearby for a future workshop event too.

123Cloud Solutions will also be present as part of 123ICT’s stand at the Headteacher’s conferences for Oxfordshire and Bucks headteachers.

If you would like to learn more about Google for Education, or book one of our team to demonstrate Chromebooks and Google for Education in your school, please contact cloudsolutions@123ict.co.uk
