Working-Teaching-Learning from Home - CompuNews: Part Fifteen

Google Digital Summit

Google for Education are running a free Digital Summit for educators aimed at the hundreds of schools that have been set up for G Suite as part of the funded DfE Cloud platform program:

“Education is in a time of unforeseen complexity. School leaders, teachers and students around the world have quickly had to adapt to new ways of teaching and learning, often with little time and training."

With this in mind, on 23rd June, Google are hosting Education on Air to welcome these schools and help get them set up quickly to face the challenges of remote and in-class learning.

This is an online event with advice, tips, inspiration & resources schools can use over the coming weeks to support their Chromebook and G Suite journey. 

Here’s a taster of the agenda including the highlight of the event, Nick Gibb, Minister of State at the Department for Education, will be also speaking.
