Our Google & Chromebook Project
We're Googling Now!
The Randolph County School System's Google Project started when a few teachers started evaluating the G-Suite for Education (it was not called this then) and the Office 365 for Education platforms in the 2017-2018 school year.
Google Project will continue into the Summer of 2019 and the following
school year. There will be professional development classes throughout
the Summer in the proper care and management of Chromebooks in education
and how to incorporate the use of Google Apps into the curriculum to
better educate our students. Also, our teachers will undergo training in
various methods of incorporating STEM concepts into our curriculum, as
well as the Standards of Excellence.
Even though WE are still in a transition period, the benefits are showing:
- students are more engaged
- students are more enthusiastic
- students are more willing to provide better quality feedback
- there is better communication
