This year Bear Grass Charter School will be “Going Google”. Google offers a suite of tools to centralize all their academic efforts under one school-managed online domain. It is highly interactive, and positively encourages collaboration. It has benefits for both staff and students and is instantly familiar and easy to learn. This year each student will receive a brand new Chromebook to use for their educational purposes while attending Bear Grass Charter School.
BGCS will be using Google Docs which is the core foundation of Google Apps for Education. This online office suite allows you to create word processing documents, slideshow presentations, and spreadsheets. Usefully, these documents can be worked on collaboratively in real-time, by both staff and students, and they can be shared with the world or kept private according to your needs.
The benefits of becoming a Google Apps for Education School are numerous, but some of the most important ones include the ability for staff and students to have access to their email and files and home and at school. This, in theory, could eliminate the need for flash drives, mislaid work, and so forth. It is also, undeniably, a great collaboration tool that can be used to enhance communication between staff and students. It provides an instant and reliable file backup system to the cloud, and, perhaps most importantly, it is free for educators!
BGCS focuses on integrating technology as the 21st century economy has become so fierce, competitive, and rugged. BGCS employees and students will use Google Apps for Education as a tool to think outside the box and do different things in order to have a competitive edge over their counterparts. Bear Grass Charter School “goes Google” as a way to use educational platform to empower the next generation of administrators, teachers, and students.
Matthew Kalmowitz, Bear Grass Charter School’s IT Specialist has worked extremely hard this summer to have BGCS students prepared for their 2015-16 school year.
